Alfred Vargas may have veered away from the limelight, and he did so for a good reason.
The actor-turned-politician, who is now on his third term as Congressman in Quezon City, is now playing a bigger role as the patriarch of his growing family. Married to his beautiful wife Yasmine Espiritu-Vargas, the couple are blessed with three kids Ching (9), Ary (8), and Cristiano (1).
Dear Amore ko, There are two most important days to me: the day you were born and the day I knew why I was born. I was born to love you and take care of you for the rest of our lives. Truth be told, I cannot imagine life without you coz life without you is a life not worth living. As you celebrate your 21st birthday today😉I want you and everybody to know what a wonderful and beautiful human being you are, inside and out. You bring immeasurable joy to this world through your heart and good, unassuming deeds. You have this natural, quiet, way of effecting happiness and hope to others, and even to strangers, by helping them through your acts of charity and advocacies like breastfeeding and supporting orphans to have better lives. You always thought of others. Especially the ones in dire need. You have spent your own personal, hard-earned money to help others get medical treatment. You’ve given multiple liters of your own milk just to help non-lactating mothers nurture their own child during the first days of their life. This wasn’t easy because you spent hours and hours of your personal time pumping milk. You were not afraid to show your vulnerability by sharing your most difficult and challenging journey during your pregnancy with Cristiano. And you did this in the most honest-to-goodness way because you wanted to help other mothers-to-be experiencing the same challenge to be strong and have faith in the Lord. I remember you telling me that if you can help at least one mother overcome her problem and have a successful pregnancy and delivery, then all your sacrifices and experiences would be worth it. Well, you did not only help one, Amore ko. You have helped hundreds already! You have given them hope and the strength to carry on because you know that the journey called motherhood is never easy and mothers need other mothers from time to time to survive. And most of the time, without you cognizant of it, you have become an inspiration to many. I am mighty proud of you, Amore ko @yasmine_vargas2307 ❤️ Among all the wonderful things you’ve done, I thank you most for raising our 3 wonderful children with your own hands.. the Yasmine way. Happy birthday, Amore❤️
