Heart Evangelista has always been known to wear her heart on her sleeve (pun intended!) and express love through thoughtful messages on her social accounts. For her husband Sorsogon Governor Chiz Escudero's 50th birthday today, the Kapuso star posted a series of loving throwback posts of her and Chiz over the years.
She started the Instagram Stories series with a photo of a *young* Chiz and recounted how they first crossed paths in 2007! "So it all started as a crush…2007," Heart wrote. "I saw you speak at this event at La Union and I was like…'Hallelujah' [laughing emoji] Seriously—blown away."
She then went on to call him "a gentleman, smart, hilarious" and compared him to a bunch of ~dashing and romantic~ fictional characters from literature and pop culture: Mr. Darcy (Pride and Prejudice), the Chairman (Memoirs of a Geisha), and Mr. Big (Sex and the City).
Heart also called Chiz her North Star, best friend, and hero!
The seriously heartwarming posts were closed off with a simple dedication: "To my darling @escuderochiz I love you as far as the moon and back [heart emoji]."
The messages didn't end on IG Stories, though! Heart posted another birthday greeting for Chiz as an Instagram post, but, this time, focused on his contributions and impact as a public official: "I hope you wake up every day knowing how you have made this world a better place, not only for me, but for our family, friends, and countless Filipinos out there who look up to you."
Happy birthday, Gov. Chiz!
