Maxene Magalona showed much birthday love to her mother-in-law, Millet Martinez Mananquil, amid split rumors with her husband Rob Mananquil which sparked earlier this year.
On Sunday, April 24, the “Viral Scandal” actress took to Instagram to share photos and videos from her mother-in-law’s birthday lunch along with a special birthday greeting.
“Happy birthday to my lovely mother-in-law @milletmartinezmananquil, who is truly one of the kindest souls I’ve ever encountered in this lifetime,” she wrote in the caption
Maxene went on to express her gratitude for her “Mom” and detail what she admires most about her.
“She is a wise, witty, and warm-hearted woman who always makes the people around her feel special and welcome. We are so grateful for your energy, Mom!" she added.
They chose to celebrate the special occasion in a resort hotel in Parañaque, Manila. Rob was not tagged nor mentioned in the post.
In return, Millet left a heartfelt comment on Maxene’s post, saying how much the actress means to her and her family.
“You’re not just our daughter-in-law, Maxene. You’re our daughter! You are part of our family, our universe. You are so kind, caring, funny, wacky, intelligent— with no malice in your heart! The bonus is, you are a brilliant writer too. You are deeply eloquent; and yet you can be crazy when the world is weary and needs to laugh. You are always positive in thought, word and deed. We need you. The world needs you,” she wrote back.
Maxene and Rob tied the knot twice in January 2018.
Last January, after eagle-eyed netizens noticed that Maxene had unfollowed Rob on Instagram and removed his surname on her profile, speculations circulated that they have gone their separate ways.
