Claudine Barretto held a mini celebration on what would have been her ex Rico Yan's 46 birthday.
Today, March 16, the Optimum Star shared some photos and videos from their mini salu-salo with her family and friends. Claudine also got a cake for Rico, where she uttered a prayer before blowing the candle.
“Happy birthday, Rico. We love you. We will not forget you. Just keep watching over us," she said. Rico's birthday was last Sunday, March 14.
In one of her vlogs, the "Got 2 Believe" actress admitted that she still feels love for him, even more than a decade after his passing.
"Mahal ko pa rin siya," she admitted. "Hindi nawawala 'yun. I think hindi nawawala 'yung [love] kapag namatay na 'yung tao... Lalo pa yatang lumalabas kung ano ang nararamdaman mo towards the person kapag nawala na 'yung tao."
"Mayroon akong pagsisisi na sana mas matagal ko siyang nakasama, sana nandoon ako noong nangyari 'yung dapat sana ay hindi nangyari," she added.
Claudine and Rico were among the prime love teams in the early 2000s. They starred in the hit series "Mula Sa Puso" and "Saan Ka Man Naroroon," which were followed by blockbuster movies like “Dahil Mahal Na Mahal Kita” and “Got 2 Believe.”
