They say life begins at 40, but for Judy Ann Santos, 40 began with an epic surprise birthday party.
The actress' husband Ryan Agoncillo, as well as her closest family and friends, organized the event right under her nose and what resulted was a roaring bash; the drinks flowed, the music rang loud, and love surrounded everything.
The party was attended by some of the biggest names in showbiz: Angelica Panganiban, Sarah Geronimo, Jericho Rosales, Matteo Guidicelli, Bb. Joyce Bernal, Iza Calzado, Ben Wintle, and more.
Also there to surprise her was Palawan-based director Nico Garcia, Juday's best friend. According to a report by PEP, their reunion pushed the actress to tears.
Filipino legends Aegis and Ely Buendia were also in attendance, providing live performances.
Another highlight from the evening came when Juday took the stage with her sisters-from-other-mothers Angelica and Sarah to belt out Aegis' iconic hit "Luha". You can watch that here:
"Thank you, wala na akong pwede pang masabi," an emotional Juday told the party, "lagi kong sinasabi na I only have a few friends, 'eto na po lahat 'yun, kayo na lahat 'yun. Thank you, enjoy the night!"
Happy birthday, Judy Ann!
