Although his 50th birthday is still in November, actor Robin Padilla received an advanced surprise birthday party, meticulously prepared by his wife Mariel Padilla. The grand party was held at Fairmont Makati last Friday, August 9.
All along, Robin thought that the said celebration was for Mariel, who herself turned 35 years old last August 10. And little did he know that it will be a joint celebration of their birthdays.
The It’s Showtime host once again pulled off another grand celebration for their family this year following her gender reveal and baby shower party for her second daughter with Robin, which both took place a month ago.
But for this particular celebration, the soon-to-be mom of two dedicated her supposed birthday celebration to her husband as she and her daughter will not be around during Robin’s actual birthday party.
(Mariel, who had experienced difficult pregnancies in the past, is probably going to wait for her full terms abroad and give birth there as well, just as she did with Isabella.)
Yesterday, Mariel started to share several photos taken from last Friday night’s event via Instagram. Her first post was a photo of her wearing a modern Filipiniana dress and Robin donning his beige suit partnered with colorful lanyard with its unique ethnic patterns.
The photo was captioned: “I am 35 years old today!!! 💕💕💕 and last night we had our biggest party ever!!! But it wasn’t for me... it was for my husband ❤️ he turns 50 this November and sadly Isabella and I will not be here to celebrate with him. So I threw him a surprise party... the whole time he thought it was my party i was planning but it was his. From the bottom of my heart, my sincerest gratitude to everyone who helped me out!!! @vidanes_cm @betchayvidanesmaraming salamat! To my sister @kayegarcia13 who has never let me down THANK YOU.”
Present at the Filipiniana-themed party were celebrities Bela Padilla, Iza Calzado, Jodi Sta. Maria, Lucy Torres, Gretchen Barretto, Bianca Gonzales with her husband JC Intal, Ruffa Gutierrez with her parents Annabelle and Eddie Gutierrez and of course, Robin’s daughter Kylie Padilla and her husband Aljur Abrenica.
