After a family vacation in the US earlier this year, Nikki Gil is back in the country and celebrated her birthday last August 23 with an intimate dinner party with her non-showbiz husband BJ Albert and their closest friends. On her Instagram account last August 25, she wrote, “Celebrated my 35th with a dinner hosted by best husband awardee @bj_albert The dinner menu featured dishes we served at our wedding reception (thank you tita @margaritafores for squeezing us in ) Thank You Lord for the gift of health, family and friendship. ”
Nikki also received birthday wishes from her friends in showbiz like Camille Prats, Ciara Sotto, and Bea Alonzo. Nikki’s longtime friend and model Patty Laurel also shared a memorable moment during the singer’s intimate birthday dinner in an Instagram post.
“I remember one night while we were just hanging out as couples and the topic of ‘finding happiness’ was brought up — Nikki just said in the most honest way ‘I am just so happy already! I am just really happy everyday!!’ and then she turned to BJ and they laughed in a cute way like the kind of laugh you share when you have an inside joke at gets na gets nyo lang ang isa’t isa. ( I know that look&laugh combo because it’s something I often share with Patrick too ) So spotting it that night was something that made me kilig, especially to see that secret ‘UYYY’ between two people who I love so dearly. Happy Birthday to this Happy Girl @nikkigil Love you My Jinxy and fellow @danitabuenaenrile You have been so blessed and as your friends, we will always be here to celebrate these happy moments with you! Especially when these moments include a fantabulous feast by THE Margarita Fores bravo @bj_albert , you deserve a slow clap for planning this amazing birthday dinner I am already looking forward to August 2023-2080 — Booked na every year in my calendar until we see each other in heaven hahahaha .”
Nikki married BJ in November 2015 at the Sta. Elena Golf and Country Club in Laguna, after a nine month engagement. They have two kids, son Finn, 4, and daughter Maddie, who will be turning one in October.
