Janella Salvador thanked her good friend Liza Soberano for the surprise baby shower she organized August last year before she flew to the United Kingdom with Markus Paterson.
On Instagram yesterday, January 17, the actress put the spotlight on Liza's effort to gather the people close to her to make the intimate event possible.
In the caption, Janella recalled how Liza pulled off the Audrey Hepburn-themed surprise.
"This was after a secret maternity pictorial I did—my team told me I was gonna do an OOTD in another room and BOOM. I’m not very good at reactions when people surprise me in person, which explains my face in the video," Janella shared.
Among the people who were present at the baby shower were Janella's mom Jenine Desiderio, brother Russell, her "The Killer Bride" co-star and aunt Maja Salvador, and many more.
"Seeing these people who are dear to me all in one room warmed my heart and reminded me of the good in the world despite the situation. That friend is none other than @lizasoberano. Thank you. You are a gem," she added.
The post also included a clip of Liza sharing her message for the couple's son Jude Trevor.
"Hey Jude! This is your ninang Liza and I'm already claiming it even if we haven't had the baptism yet. I'm so happy that you are finally out to the world. I'm so glad that we can finally announce how proud we are of you and of your mama and of your papa. And I'm happy to be part of this journey, especially for my good friend -- your mommy," she said.
"I don't know but I can understand how hard it must be to become a mother at a time like this during a time of uncertainty because of the virus and, of course, with what's happening with our company. That's why I decided to come up with a little surprise for your mom, I made her a baby shower because I wanted her first pregnancy with you to be a special one and one that she will never forget."
She ended her message by reminding how much she supports Janella. She said, "I just wanted to let her know that there are so many people that support and love her and we wanted you to know that too as well."
Janella and Markus welcomed their son October last year. Liza was among the ones she shared the pregnancy news with before introducing their son to the public early this month.
