There's no better place to be than the beach for Kathryn Bernardo to celebrate her 26th birthday!
The "2 Good To Be True" actress, who turned 26 last March 26, flew to El Nido, Palawan with her boyfriend Daniel Padilla, fellow Aries babies Ria Atayde and Alora Sasam, celebrity hair stylist John Valle, and actor Joshua Garcia, for a triple birthday celebration. Ria and Alora also celebrated their birthdays this month on the 23rd and 27th, respectively.
Alora gave a glimpse of their island getaway on her Instagram over the weekend, including photos of the three ladies posing in matching dresses and colorful swimsuits.
We also have John to thank for the kilig KathNiel updates from the celebration, sharing sweet moments of the couple enjoying the beautiful sunset by the beach.
In one post, John also captured Kathryn's birthday salubong with Daniel surprising his girlfriend with a birthday cake. The "2 Good 2 Be True" leading man also dedicated an impromptu set for his “Love,” singing his rendition of "Truth" by Bamboo.
“Cheers, guys. Happy Birthday, Love!” said Daniel before singing his heart out.
On her Instagram page last March 26, Kathryn penned an empowering message to mark her 26th birthday, as she listed down the things who made her the woman that she is today.
"As I turn 26, I celebrate everything that made me who I am today. I celebrate my body, which I’ve learned to fully embrace in my journey to self-love. I celebrate the people who helped me grow—those who love me and continue to make life worth living, and those who don't but continue to make me stronger and more resilient," she wrote.
"I celebrate courage, being vulnerable, and the choice to stand up no matter what life throws at me. I celebrate joy, finding happiness in the simplest things, and laughing at the silliest jokes. I celebrate the challenges and struggles that ultimately shaped me to become a better person."
"And lastly, I celebrate my voice, being able to stand up for the things I believe in and speak up for myself unfiltered," she concluded her post.
