Edward Barber was showered with lotsa love at the birthday dinner his fans arranged for him last night, July 13, receiving the kind words and well wishes from the people that know and appreciate him the most.
Of course it wouldn’t be complete without hearing from his lady friend, the ever-so-charming Maymay Entrata. She could’ve wished him materials things and such, but she had more important things in mind.
The Kapamilya actress wished Edward to keep sharing the goodness of his being and just stay the way he is.
“Wish ko sa’yo huwag kang magbago lang kasi minahal ka ng tao kung sino ka. Tapos ano ka lang parang sana kung paano ka maging caring sa lahat ng tao sana gano'n pa rin. Kung gaano ka-lovable na person, just stay who you are because all of us love you as who you are,” Maymay told Edward, as reported by Push.
She added, “Tapos ‘yung pagiging maalagain mo sa pamilya mo at ‘yung pagiging matulungin mo talaga kasi iyon ‘yung nagustuhan ko sa kanya, ‘yung pagiging matulungin po niya sa charity at tsaka sa mga bata. Huwag kang magbago at ‘yun maging maka-Diyos ka pa rin.”
Edward is turning 17 on the 15th and he’s taking it as another chapter in his life. And Edward’s going in with the perfect balance of gratitude, passion, and willingness to learn.
“With everything changing at the moment, one thing that I will keep the same is that my family will be there because I won’t be able to get this far [without them],” he said as part of his little speech at the celebration.
He thanked everyone behind it and shared that he wishes nothing but the best for his loved ones.
“I am very happy and very surprised,” Edward said. “For my family and friends to be safe and I hope things will stay the same because I know all things are changing, with all the blessings coming, I just hope the people I love will still be there.”
He continued, “Actually I’m turning 17 on the 15th so I’m still enjoying my last few days of being a child I guess because as soon as I turn 17 it is a step closer, as my parents say, to becoming a man, a really grown man. I am looking forward to the challenges and experiences that I will have.”
Edward and Maymay are part of the Primetime Bida series “La Luna Sangre” with Richard Gutierrez, Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla, and more.
They are also starring together in the upcoming film “Loving In Tandem” alongside Kisses Delavin and Marco Gallo.
