Marjorie Barretto’s unico hijo Leon just turned 19!
On Leon’s birthday last Saturday, April 2, the former actress took to Instagram to express her love and pride for her “dearest” son with a few family photos.
“Happy 19th Birthday to my dearest Leon!” Marjorie wrote in the caption. “I can’t think of a better son, brother, and Kuya to Erich. Thank you for making my mommy heart so happy and proud all the time. We love you so very much!”
Dani Barretto, the eldest of Marjorie’s children, also greeted her younger brother a happy birthday. In her Instagram post, she called Leon their “mom’s protector” and “everyone’s cameraman.”
“Happy Birthday to our gentle giant, @theleonbarretto ❤️ Thank you for being the best brother to us, most especially to Erich. And for being mom’s protector and everyone’s cameraman. Hahaha! Your patience is admirable!” she wrote in the caption.
She continued, “Seeing you grow into a fine man is definitely one of our proudest moments. Please know that I will always be here for you to guide you and help you power through life. Your crazy sisters love you so very much!! Happy Birthday, Li Li!!!”
Leon replied to his sister’s post, saying, “I love you forever, Dani. Will always be grateful that I have you as my Ate in life. Love you too much, thank you guys for raising me.”
Aside from Leon and Dani, Marjorie is mom to actress Julia Barretto, singer Claudia Barretto, and Erich Barretto.
