Edward Barber took to Instagram last night to pen a sweet birthday message to Maymay Entrata, who’s celebrating her 23rd birthday today, May 6.
Edward uploaded a stunning selfie photo of Maymay on his IG feed and mentioned in his caption that she is “a bright star of hope” amidst all the chaos.
“Through all the chaos in the World, through all the joy and pain, all the storms brewing in our lives, you are a bright star of Hope.
“I know things didn’t go how you planned this time. But I know that won’t stop you from smiling.”
He also said that Maymay, the other half of MayWard loveteam, is a blessing to him and that he will always be there for the birthday girl.
“Your heart is full of Gods love, and he’s blessed you so you can be a blessing. And that’s what you are.
“God bless you always. Don’t forget that I have your back, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAY🕊 and don’t forget that you are #GodsForeverPrincess.”
Despite the rumored loveteam breakup, Edward made sure to make Maymay’s special day extra special with his touching post.
Maymay replied on the comment section, saying, “Thank you edward, nandito lang din ako bilang isang kaibigan mo. God bless you always dong.”
Turning a year older amidst the on-going pandemic and ABS-CBN shutdown seemed like not the best time for Maymay to be joyous.
It was only yesterday, May 5, when ABS-CBN, Maymay’s home network, was ordered to cease nationwide operations by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC).
The heartbreaking news totally affected thousands of Filipinos including the celebrant.
However, amidst all the chaos, the actress still managed to smile and feel grateful as she welcomed another year in her life.
On Instagram, she posted that she received a surprise birthday salubong and confessed that she thought she’ll sleep with a heavy heart.
Attached to her post is a series of photos showing a carefree Maymay sitting in a room full of colorful balloons while she’s holding her small birthday cake.
She wrote in her caption, “Yung akala mong matutulog kang malungkot. Salamat sa pa surprise inday @cntpatricia_ @jaybienjescojb @daisyreeluche.. mahal ko kayo.”
Happiest Birthday, Maymay!
