Actress-comedienne Pokwang could not help but turn emotional after she was thrown a surprise birthday dinner by her family and closest friends on Monday, August 29.
Clips from the surprise party organized by her managers and daughter Mae were uploaded on Instagram by ABS-CBN's Eric John Salut.
Among those who attended the celebration were celebrity friends of Pokwang, including Ria Atayde, Kim Atienza, Rabiya Mateo, Jeric Gonzales, and John Lapus.
Pokwang turned 52 last Saturday, August 27.
Pokwang made headlines last July after she confirmed that she and her longtime partner, Malia's father Lee O'Brian, had parted ways.
"I’m okay. We’re okay. No third party involved and we’re both co-parenting kay Malia. Maayos naming tinapos ang lahat. Hindi kami pait-paitan," she said in a statement sent to Push.
“In fact, welcome siya sa bahay. Every weekend ay magkakasama kami. Seven months of surviving and peace ‘ika nga."
Pokwang and Lee first met when they worked together on the 2014 TFC movie Edsa Woolworth. They started dating the following year. They welcomed their daughter, Malia, in January 2019.
