Luis Manzano sure is lucky (*wink, wink*) to have such loving women in his life. <3
The “I Can See Your Voice” host celebrated his 37th birthday last Saturday, April 21, and shared the stage with his mom Vilma Santos when she guested on the game show.
“I’m so proud of my son,” the Star for All Seasons said on the show through her tears. “I just want to thank God for blessing me with a son like Lucky. Natuto siya, with all his blessings, to share it with other people na nangangailangan, hindi siya nagdadalawang isip - that’s why I’m so proud of him. Anak, please don’t change. Share your blessings and God bless you. I’m proud of you, anak.”
Luis’ best friend Anne Curtis, who is currently in London for the London Marathon, greeted her Best Man on Instagram with a touching caption and a photo from her wedding with Erwan Heussaff last November.
“To the man that cried just as much as my dad, my brother AND my husband at my wedding, my best friend, Luis Manzano (@luckymanzano), HAPPY BIRTHDAY ❤️” she wrote in her caption.
She continued, “People may think that you’re always such a joker and 'macho man' (dahil birthday mo lang ‘yan ha) but I’ve seen the caring and soft side of you! Thank you for being my best and only guy best friend! For life ‘to! Just as you did to Erwan (Heussaff), I can’t wait for the day to come when I get to whisper to your bride, 'Thank you for loving him,' too 👫 Love you!”
Jessy Mendiola also greeted her boyfriend of two years on Instagram with a sweet message and really handsome shots of the birthday boy.
“My love, you are the biggest blessing I’ve ever received in my entire life. I thank God every day for giving me a man who loves me for who I am and supports everything I want to do,” she wrote in her caption.
“You take all my fears away and replace them with hope and happiness. You are a good man, that’s why I’m so LUCKY to be loved by someone like you. I love you with all my heart, nothing will ever change that. Happy birthday my one and only howhow!! ❤️”
Jessy also arranged a party for her “one and only” for the next day (April 22). She successfully gathered the two sides of Luis’ family for the celebration as his parents Vilma Santos and Edu Manzano were present, as well as his stepfather Senator Ralph Recto and half-brother Ryan.
“So happy we were able to pull this off! Happy birthday again, my howhow - seeing you very happy makes my heart full. Thank you to everyone who came last night, each one of you made Luis’ (@luckymanzano) birthday extra special,” she wrote in her caption.
Luis later wrote about the night in his own Instagram post, thanking Jessy for arranging the celebration and revealing a realization.
“What a night!!!!! ❤️❤️Thank you very much to my wonderful howhow Jessy (@senorita_jessy) for bringing EVERYONE together! :) I just realized that it was the first time that both sides of my family were in one place AND your family being there too!!!” he wrote in his caption.
“YOU ARE ❤️❤️❤️[I] can’t even find a word that would suffice! Love you how!!” he continued.
Doesn’t Luis’ birthday sound like a blast?
