Judy Ann Santos never shies away from expressing her love for her kids on social media. Today, the award-winning actress and Youtube content creator took to Instagram to greet her eldest daughter Yohan Agoncillo on her 17th birthday.
She shared some of their adorable selfies together, captioned: “17!!??? What???? No!!!! Oh my sweet baby love… my answered prayer, my twin in so many ways (kahit ako nagugulat)
“It’s amazing how we saw you grow up and mature right before our very eyes. You’re doing great, my love. Life can be tough and unforgiving. But, don’t you worry my dear love. Mommy and daddy will be behind you all the way. We love you so much, sweetheart. Happy birthday, our forever baby girl.”
She even joked, “P.S. Next year, pabaliktad na bilang natin ng edad mo ah!”
In the comment section, birthday wishes for Yohan poured in. One fan, in particular, reminisced the birthday girl’s childhood moments. The user wrote, “OMG, wala dalaga na talaga. How time flies talaga, I remember the first time I saw her sa video clip nyo ni Tatay Ryan when you were planning your wedding nung tumatakbo-takbo pa siya.”Instagram/officialjuday
She went on to share an adorable mother-daughter moment captured on video: "Ang cute cute niya and who could forget her famous line when you asked her nung minemake-upan kayo nung wedding day mo, nung sabi mo sa kanya 'are you beautiful?' and she said, 'no, I’m gorgeous.'"
Following their marriage, Juday’s husband Ryan Agoncillo legally adopted Yohan, saying the best gift they could give her is the gift of family. He said, "Hindi mapapantayan ng kahit anong bagay ang pagmamahal namin sa kanya. Yeah, the greatest gift we could give her is the gift of having a family. And sa nakikikita ko naman, tingin ko, mas napapasaya namin siya. Pero ang effect, kami yung masayang-masaya na kasama namin siya."
Aww. Happy birthday, Yohan!
