A debut is more than a party. It is the moment to celebrate a young lady’s stride to womanhood as she turns 18. Whether the celebrant wants to party or just bond with loved ones, the debutante marks that milestone year in her life when she enters adulthood. For Kapamilya female celebrities, reaching 18 is seen with much interest and significance, as they not only transition in terms of age group but also career-wise as they prepare for more challenging opportunities. In this Kapamilya gallery, let’s look at how these Kapamilya female stars reveled in their 18th birthdays.
One of the most talked-about and trending debut celebrations among celebrities was that of then Teen Queen Kathryn Bernardo who looked like royalty in her gorgeous Francis Libiran pink gown. It was even considered by the netizens and the fans the “best debut ever.” The motif was black, white, and pink formal. The guest list was star studded and this included Sam Milby, Julia Montes, and Enrique Gil. But most importantly, her partner Daniel Padilla was right by her side.
Liza Soberano did not want an extravagant party. She preferred a more laidback celebration. It was indeed one of the most unforgettable moments of her life as loved ones surprised the stunning actress with a chill Bohemian-themed bash by the beach. It was a very intimate celebration as she only celebrated with her relatives, some fans, high school friends, and colleagues in showbiz. Before this, Liza hosted multiple charitable activities as a way of celebrating. She met with orphans, marginalized children, breast cancer patients, and the elderly.
Julia Montes looked like she jumped out of a fairytale book for her debut. The venue featured an indoor lake, a carriage, and a castle-themed cake. Julia was escorted by Coco Martin. Her 18 roses included Enrique Gil and Daniel Padilla. On the other hand, Kathryn Bernardo, Dawn Zulueta, and Denise Laurel were part of her 18 treasures.
Janella Salvador did not plan to have a debut party, but Star Magic still surprised her with a Hollywood-themed bash. The singer-actress believed that she was going to perform at a 7th birthday celebration, until she arrived at the venue and was surprised to see her family, friends, and the talents of Star Magic. Before this, Janella gave gifts to the less fortunate as her “18 blessings.” This was her personal celebration for all the blessings that she has received. Janella's mom, actress-singer Jenine Desiderio, and her younger brother Russell, along with her friends in showbiz including Jane Oineza, Marlo Mortel, Ylona Garcia, Vina Morales, made Janella’s debut complete.
Andrea Brillantes welcomed her 18th birthday with a magazine feature where she wore 18 different beautiful gowns. She was even dubbed as “Debutante of the Year”.

But she was still surprised with an intimate party organized by her friends Mona Alawi as well as Kadenang Ginto co-stars Bea Borres and CJ De Guzman.
Loisa Andalio celebrated her 18th birthday with a concert for her ever-supportive fans. It turned out to be a debut concert held at the Music Museum. Special guests included Yeng Constantino and Maris Racal. Hashtag members Jimboy, Paulo, and Ryle were also present. Of course, Loisa’s boyfriend Ronnie Alonte prepared a surprise.
Jane Oineza had two debuts. She turned 18 years old while inside the Pinoy Big Brother house and had a party with her fellow housemates. Jane celebrated again in the outside world this time with friends, family, and supporters. Her close friends from the industry were also present during the special night.
Francine Diaz is known for her sweet and gentle personality. So, the “Dreamland” theme for her 18th birthday was definitely befitting. The venue turned into a magical place that was filled with clouds and flowers. She always wanted to be a “modern princess” and this finally came true for her debut.
Sofia Andres opted for a simple but sophisticated party to begin her womanhood. Instead of a ball gown, Sofia stunned in a Jot Losa red tuxedo dress. As requested by Sofia, her showbiz friends CJ Navato, Kristel Fulgar, Daryl Ong, and Diego Loyzaga prepared song numbers.
Heaven Peralejo had a grand party. The pre-debut shoot alone was like living in a fantasy world. One of the highlights of the night was when Heaven performed a song while animated images were projected on her white gown. Her closest friends in the industry including Janella Salvador, Elmo Magalona, Joj and Jai Agpangan made her special night complete. The grand celebration also became a reunion for the Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7 teen housemates.
Kira Balinger was like a fairy princess at her floral-themed 18th birthday. She wore an elegant dress designed by Mark Bumgarner. She felt that a dress would fit the vibe better than a huge ball gown. The venue was adorned with tropical greenery and millennial pink drapes to recreate a “Havana haven”. Even Kira’s unique cake was perfect for the theme. Kira looked even more regal as she sang and dance to the tune of Camila Cabello’s single “Havana,” which definitely fit the theme of the dreamy celebration.
