On January 2, Alden Richards celebrated his 26th birthday on Eat Bulaga. His love team partner Maine Mendoza, who recently returned to the show after a short absence, expressed her well-wishes for him, "Nasa iyo naman na lahat, lahat ng gusto mong mabili nakukuha mo. Pero ako, kung ano man ang hinihiling mo pa sa buhay at saka 'yung inaasam ng puso mo sana ibigay sa'yo ni Lord. Happy birthday."

Alden then became emotional when he shared his birthday wish, "Ang wish ko lang po talaga sana po matapos na 'yung hate. Matanggal na 'yung hate sa puso ng mga tao kasi ang daming puwedeng ipagpasalamat araw-araw na hindi natin nakikita ang kamalian ng iba. Sabi nga nung nag-text sa akin kaninang umaga, 'Do more of whatever makes you happy. 2018 will be big for all of us.'"

It was when his co-hosts mentioned his late mom Rosario Faulkerson, who passed away in 2008, that made Alden even more emotional. He said, "Nakakatuwa kasi, parang last Christmas, niregaluhan ako. May regalo 'yung pinsan ko, old video ng Pasko namin, siguro mga twenty years ago. 'Yun po 'yung unang video na nakita ko yung nanay ko for the longest time [since she died]."

He continued, "So, 'Ma, siyempre, every day naman nagdarasal ako, lagi kitang kinakausap na sayang pa rin na you didn't get the chance to experience these. Basta grateful ako na binigyan mo ako ng chance na mabuhay sa mundo. Grateful ako dahil sa'yo, marami akong buhay na nata-touch and nakapagbibigay ng kaligayahan. Ma, kung nasaan ka man, every day is a day with you and every day I celebrate you as part of all of these. I love you, Ma.'"
