Ella Cruz had the most wholesome birthday as she turned 25 on August 17.
Due to the stay-at-home protocols brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the actress was surprised by her family and friends with a children's party, complete with inflatable slides and a ball pit.
She wrote on Instagram, "Again, my family, friends, and [the] people who love me never really fail to surprise me!"
"Lagi kong sinasabi, 'Simple lang, 25 naman na ako, e.' Pero binigyan nila ako ng children's party! At dahil bawal lumabas para mag-resort, dinala na lang nila sa bahay," Ella shared.
Thanking her family, friends, and boyfriend, Julian Trono, the actress added, "Thank you for always making me feel like your baby. I love you all!"
Meanwhile, Julian posted a sweet birthday message for the actress on Instagram. He said that they forgot to take photos together from Ella's party "but it doesn't matter, [because] these memories should be captured by the heart and not the camera."
Ella recently made headlines when she slammed body shamers by urging her followers to focus on one's own beauty instead of other people's flaws. The actress recently starred in the comedy-drama film Gluta.
