Kapamilya Snaps: Celebrity parents who threw memorable birthday parties for their kiddos in 2023!

Parents definitely will do everything that they can to not just give their children a comfortable and good life and a bright and secure future, but to also make them feel loved and truly special.

Aside from providing them with all the things that they need or even want, they also do it by throwing fun-filled and unforgettable birthday parties for them, most especially in the first years of their lives. Just like the loving celebrity parents featured in this episode of Kapamilya Snaps, who enthusiastically shared on social media and in their video vlogs how they marked the birthdays of their beloved babies.

Angelica Panganiban and Gregg Homan

Time indeed flew so fast, and just like that, Angelica and Gregg’s adorable firstborn Amila Sabine is now already one! They seemingly had a simple celebration in Subic, Zambales in September, which was attended by some of their closest family and friends who even traveled the world to celebrate with them. Among their guests were their celebrity friends Isabel Oli, Ketchup Eusebio, Cherry Pie Picache, Director Andoy Ranay, Jason Gainza, and Glaiza De Castro.

Kung kaya lang namin kayo halikan ng ganito kalupit para maramdaman ninyo ang pasasalamat ng pamilya namin sa pagmamahal niyo sa anak naming wala ng mapaglagyan ng ligaya,” the Kapamilya actress captioned a set of photos from Bean’s birthday party.

Jessy Mendiola and Luis Manzano

Considering the busyness of everyone during the holiday season, Jessy and Luis decided to have two celebrations for their cherished daughter Isabella Rose’s first birthday last December. The first one was held in advance during the actress’ special day on December 3, which she explained in a post, “We figured everyone would be busy during Rosie’s actual birthday, so we decided to celebrate earlier on MY birthday.”

And on Baby Rosie’s exact birthday last December 28, the loving parents marked it by posting a set of her cute snaps from her creative birthday shoot and penning heartwarming messages for her. Jessie captioned her post, “I never knew I could love like this. You have taught me patience, kindness and most of all how to LOVE unconditionally. Being your mother is an absolute blessing and I cannot imagine my life without you. You are my everything, my love. Thank you for bringing joy into our lives, our little sunshine!”

Angeline Quinto and Nonrev Daquina

It was also last year when Angeline and non-showbiz partner Nonrev’s firstborn turned one. Thus, they made sure to make it really unforgettable by hosting a farm-themed birthday party for him in April held at a lavish venue in Lipa City, Batangas.

The family of three also had a photoshoot, in which their beloved boy looked like a cute little cowboy as he dressed up like Woody of the Toy Story film series. The proud Mama shared their pictures on Instagram and captioned it, “Happy happy 1st birthday @babysylvio Thank you for bringing so much joy in our lives. We love you very much baby, Sylvio.”

Dimples Romana and Boyet Ahmee

For the first birthday of the newest addition to their well-loved “fAHMEEly,” Dimples and non-showbiz husband Boyet threw a star-studded fiesta-themed event for their bunso Elio Juan last July. And they wittily dubbed it, “One Na Si Juan”.

The venue was decked to recreate a fun fiesta at the province, while attendees, including the “fAHMEEly” themselves, were cladded in Filipiniana attires. Among the celebrities who graced the event were her Kadenang Ginto co-star Andrea Brillantes and her The Iron Heart castmates Karina Bautista, Lou Yanong, and Miko Raval

Jhong Hilario and Maia Azores

For their little princess’ second birthday in March, lovely couple Jhong and Maia held a simple surprise party for Sarina in March. In an IG post, the proud mom shared glimpses of the “beautiful last-minute party,” which their family and guests absolutely enjoyed.

Since it was a typical Filipino party, there was an exhilarating pabitin for kids and, of course, kantahan for everyone, which was led by none other than the birthday girl herself!

Elisse Joson and McCoy de Leon

Reel-and-real-life sweethearts Elisse and McCoy once again gave their Baby Felize a royal treatment on her second birthday in April as they had it “Encanto”-themed.

The private gathering was indeed popping in bright colors as it was decorated with balloons in various shapes, sizes, and colors. Kids and kids-at-heart apparently enjoyed the ball pit and inflatables, as seen in the set of photos uploaded by the Pira-Pirasong Paraiso actress on Instagram.

Janella Salvador and Markus Paterson

They may be no longer together, but Janella and Markus have maintained their partnership when it comes to raising their son Jude. And for his third birthday in October, the two organized a safari-themed party for him, which they held at a game center that had an arcade and a bowling alley. Above everything, it seemed that the birthday boy enjoyed the bubble show and playing basketball the most.

John Prats and Isabel Oli

As their youngest brood Forest turned 3 in July, Isabel and John transformed their spacious garage into a party venue as they threw a simple and intimate mermaid-themed celebration for her. It was attended by her cousins, who absolutely had fun playing on the slide and at the ball pit. The birthday girl’s fantasy to become a little mermaid also came true as she was seen wearing a purple fishtail and blue crop-top as she posed to the camera beside the image of Disney Princess Ariel.

Jennica Garcia

Even though she was busy with Dirty Linen, Jennica made sure to make her youngest daughter Alessi feel loved and special on her 5th birthday in July. With the help of the suppliers she tapped, they were able to successfully pull off a simple and intimate barn-inspired gathering at her school. Aside from the yummy treats for her classmates, they also brought inflatables and a life-size image of a Little Pony character.

JC De Vera and Rikkah Cruz

Before welcoming the newest addition to their family last year, JC and Rikkah celebrated first the 5th birthday of their firstborn Lana in April.

The intimate and simple gathering was held at an indoor playground bedecked with rainbow cardboards and balloons in pastel hues and an under-the-sea backdrop. Lana and her playmates truly enjoyed the event, along with the adult guests, as seen in the photos shared by the Nag-aapoy na Damdamin leading man on IG.

Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo

Last, but definitely not the least, were Juday and Ryan, who definitely went all-out for their bunso Luna’s 7th birthday in January, which was held at a family entertainment and indoor theme park in Parañaque City. Apart from their close family and friends, the party was also graced by Dreamworks characters from animated films Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, and Trolls.

Kids nowadays seem to grow up so easily, right? Thus, parents need to cherish every moment with their kids or of their kids’ childhood, which they could show by celebrating their birthdays whether in a grand celebration or a simple and intimate family gathering.

Which of these themed birthday parties are you likely to throw for the little ones in your family, Kapamilya?
