For her 35th birthday, Angel Locsin received an intimate birthday salubong from her closest family members and fiance Neil Arce.
The actress took to Instagram yesterday, April 23, to share a clip of her simple birthday celebration, which she revealed "she already knew" about 30 minutes before the surprise.
“Nalaman ko ‘yung surprise nila 30 minutes earlier. ‘Di nila alam na alam ko na. Surprise! Happy birthday to me! Salamat,” she said in the video.
Angel received two custom-made Darna-themed cakes from her father Angelo Colmenares and Neil. To this, the actress said, "How sweet na pareho ng birthday cake ang tatay ko na ibinigay sa akin at ni Neil. Ang galing. Maraming salamat!"
In a separate post, Neil greeted his fiance a happy birthday and expressed how happy he was that she got to spend it helping people amid the Coronavirus pandemic.
“Happy birthday, my love! I know this year you celebrated the way you truly want to celebrate your birthday, by helping people for over a month straight now. I’ll be with you every step of the way! I declare protection over you in Jesus name! I love you, gorgeous.” Neil wrote in the caption.
Angel’s closest friends also extended their birthday wishes for the actress. Her BFF Dimples Romana put a spotlight on the actress’ genuinely good heart.
Recalling an incident where Angel helped her after she gave birth to son Alonzo, Dimples said, “Sa totoo, sa pagkakaibigan natin, I never remember you are the superstar that you are because not once did you ever make me feel inferior. You are always kind to everyone. Hindi ka namimili, hindi ka nanghuhusga.”
“If more people knew just how genuine and how loyal you are as a person, as a friend, they will understand kung bakit ganoon na lang ang pagmamalaki ko sa’yo. Sana sa kaarawan mo ngayon, makapagpahinga ka, makatulog ka nang maayos at mahaba, makakain ka ng gusto mo, that you’ll have more years to make more memories with us, [and] that you’ll be able to help more people and be able to continue shining your light to everyone who needs you,” she added.
The couple, together with Dimples, founded the #UniTENTweStandPH campaign. They have been busy sending help to hospitals all over Luzon since the implementation of the Enhanced Community Quarantine by donating isolation tents.
Happy birthday, Angel!
