- Leni Robredo’s youngest daughter celebrated her 18ths birthday during the weekend
- She celebrated by eating cake with her mom and sister in their bedroom
- They also had a quick dinner at a restaurant
Vice President Leni Robredo’s youngest daughter Jilian Robredo received compliments on social media for celebrating her 18th birthday without extravagance.
KAMI learned from the Vice President’s social media post that they celebrated the birthday over cake, flowers and balloons since it was her daughter’s exam week at school.
Leni and her daughter also showed photos of the late Jesse Robredo and daughter Aika, who is in the US for her studies.
"Both Jill and I are feeling under the weather (apologies for looking really sick). She and Trish also have exams tomorrow.
“We wanted Jill to sleep early so we surprised her with flowers, balloons and a birthday cake 2 hours early.
“We bought her an ice cream cake this time (because she was craving for DQ yesterday) but it started melting even before we could take this shot. So we had to rush it down where it belongs -the freezer.
"If it looks like we’re endorsing a cell phone brand, that’s Jesse and Aika there. We were making sure they can join us tonight,” the VP wrote.
On Monday, Leni and her daughters went to a restaurant for a quick dinner.
“Exam week for her so she’s celebrating her birthday with a very quick dinner with her Ate Trish and me. Can’t believe she’s 18! Happy Birthday, Jillian,” Leni posted.
Netizens reacted positively towards the simple birthday message:
“What a blessed day to see your daughter finally reach the age of 18, the graduation from a young adult to a young woman. I know you, Madam Vice President Leni, are proud of her just as we are. A simple birthday is sometimes best. I am sure you will all look back on this day as one of the happiest birthdays ever. Glad to see our mayor of Naga Jesse there to join the celebration as well. Happy birthday again!!”
“This will SURELY elicit bad comments from SAVAGES on the other side of the court. Those people cannot simply stand people and families who are filled with LOVE for one another. Come on! Send them over! Your hate will NEVER overcome Love and Respect! Jill, all the best!”
“Most blessed birthday to you Jillian! Wow 18! You're a young lady now. Your dad will always love you and is proud of you. Stay strong just as your mama is.”
Leni lost her husband Jesse in a plane crash in 2012.
They have three daughters: Jessica Marie, Janine Patricia, and Jillian Therese.
She became the Vice President of the Philippines in 2016.
KAMI believes that a birthday party is made special by the loved ones who attend it and not by how extravagant it is!
