The whole world might currently be in the midst of a truly difficult situation, but it didn’t hinder him and his beloved family from celebrating his special day. Last Saturday, Momshie Karla Estrada posted on Instagram a few snaps taken during their simple yet fun birthday salubong for him that was attended by his dearly loved siblings, grandparents, cousins, and other relatives held at the comfort of their abode.
In some of the photos, his younger sister Magui was seen holding the box of chocolate cake for her Kuya as their mom and other siblings Jose Carlito and Carmella were watching them. In the caption, Momshie Karla expressed her heartwarming message for her beloved firstborn.
“Maligayang kaarawan anak! Hindi ko napanood kagabi ang concert ni Ate Regine dahil sinalubong natin ang birthday mo kaya sa YouTube ko panonoorin mamaya! Gano’n pa man ay nairaos natin nang maligaya at matiwasay ang birthday salubong mo anak, kasama ang isang masaya at malaking angkan na meron tayo. You are a blessing to all of us. You are a gift from heaven and our biggest joy. You’re the first boy who stole my teenage heart. No matter where you go, no matter how old you are, you will always be my loving son, my hero, and my superstar. God bless you and your beautiful soul. We all got your back! We love you!” she wrote.
His Popshie Rommel Padilla took to IG as well to wish his son a happy birthday and convey his love for him along with an old photograph of a very cute and young Daniel.
Magui also had her own way of greeting her Kuya by uploading her cute polaroid snaps with him and wrote on the caption, “Maligayang kaarawan sa kaisa-isang lolo ng bahay. Thank you for being the sweetest, kindest, most annoying, and weirdest kuya. You deserve all the love the world could give Super wuper love you.” She then posted a few throwback pictures of Daniel and her TikTok videos with him.
On the other hand, their youngest sibling Carmella kept her love for their Kuya low-key by simply greeting him, “have a good one big bro”, on her IG story along with a photo with him and Magui.
And last, but certainly not the least, was his beloved reel-to-real sweetheart Kathryn Bernardo. While Kathryn was not able to grace the Magandang Buhay special for him because she was sick that day, the Queen Of Hearts made up with her “bal” and their adoring fans by posting a collage of her stolen shots of DJ that she captioned, “There's a side of you that not everyone gets to see, and it's probably my favorite. So today, I want to show the world what a beautiful person you really are. If only they can see you the way I see you—your smile, your laughter, your heart. Your soft and fragile side. Thank you for being a living proof that guys like you still do exist in this world. I love you sooo much! Happy birthday, my mahal! (sic)”
Kathryn further made us kilig when she uploaded a video blog containing a montage of her favourite moments with her king on her YouTube Channel.
