Millions of Filipinos celebrated New Year 2019 with much excitement and gratitude, including famous Pinoy celebrities.
KAMI learned that several celebrities posted New Year greetings and photos on social media.
We present to you 10 of the most exciting, heartwarming and inspiring posts from celebrities.
1. Anne Curtis
The actress-host promised to take on the New Year hand in hand with her husband Erwan Heussaff:
“Hand in hand. Ready to take on 2019 together. May we all inspire others and stay inspired, be kind, be patient, have faith and support one another every step of the way to make our dreams come true. Here’s to keeping our New Years resolutions and working hard to make our wishes happen this year! Happy New Year from The Heussaff’s.”
2. Vice Ganda
The comedian ended the year by posting about her biggest achievement of 2018: making her mother happy:
“Last year she said she wished to go to Barcelona to be able to see the Sagrada Familia. My profession deprives me of quality time with my family. So when given the chance i make sure every moment counts and everything creates a wonderful memory. Before this year ends i brought her to where she wished to be. I didnt know we had to book online to get access inside the church. So i asked a friend for help. Unfortunately only one could get inside. And like a parent to a child I am now patiently waiting for her to finish her ‘field trip’ inside the Sagrada Familia. I AM THE HAPPIEST SON RIGHT NOW!!!! Fantastica is such a huge hit and continues to win in box office. But for me this is a bigger achievement. My biggest so far. To be able to grant my Nanay’s wishes as she gets older is big deal for me. Vice Ganda is accomplished. Tutoy is successful. This is how i end my 2018.”
3. Alex Gonzaga
Alex was able to insert a joke about her dad in her New Year message:
“We are welcoming 2019 together!!!! May this new year be a blessing to everyone!!! Yes, ang oa ng position ng tatay ko, pang rebulto”
4. Tirso Cruz III

“GODly heavenly morning TJ! This was taken last night. In essence, we were still complete. Happy New Year to you my son, TJ. We all missed your kiss and embrace as we all greeted each other last night. It was a very quiet celebration for the 4 of us at the dinner table. You are greatly missed. We love you!”
5. Billy Crawford
Billy focused on his 2018 wedding to Coleen Garcia and his relationship with Jesus:
“2018 was definitely a colorful year. But April 20 was the blessing above all blessings. So many people surprised us with their big hearts and made some of our dreams come true. Apart from people, I thank and praise You Jesus for all the lessons, encounters, trials, love, joy that you have given us. We are looking forward to a fresh new start and we know, Father, that you will still be here to guide us and help us every time. To our entire family, all sides, we love and thank you! To you, my loving wife, God is the only one who will ever know how much I love you. Can’t wait! MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!”
