"Malipajun na katauhan sa ako one and only mahal!" (Siargaonon for Happy Birthday to my one and only love)."
This is how actress Andi Eigenmann greeted her longtime partner and father of her second daughter on his recent birthday.
The couple is currently in a "long-distance" relationship due to some of the lockdown guidelines. Andi is in Manila with their year-old Lilo and her eight-year-old child, Ellie, who is staying with her father, Jake Ejercito when the lockdown was implemented last March; while Philmar is in his hometown of Siargao.
As Andi celebrated Philmar's birthday, she expressed gratitude to be living life to the fullest with him.
"I am truly lucky to have you as a partner, and as such an awesome dad to the kids!" she noted.
"I hope slowly achieving our dreams together will be a wonderful gift for you, specially because we are sad not to celebrate your day with you this year. Dili na kami makahoyat mobalik sa isla pohon para makaiban na kaw mahal! We miss you sooo much, and we love you! (heart emoji)."
