Oyo Sotto and Kristine Hermosa wrote the most touching messages for their eldest child, Kiel, as he celebrated his 13th birthday on August 16, Monday.
"I thank the Lord for 13 years of your life here on earth," Oyo wrote in an IG post. "You are such a blessing to us, Kiel. I may not be perfect, but always remember that Dada loves you so much! I pray that as you go through your teenage years, you will seek the Lord all the days of your life. I love you, Kiel! Happy birthday! Let’s create more good memories! I’m excited for you."
Kristine also had an equally heartfelt message for their now teenage son.
"Walang aksidente kay God. Hindi aksidente na binigay ka niya sa amin... Na ikaw ang naging daan sa matinding training namin bilang magulang... Thank you for always trying to be better and for understanding our shortcomings. You are a good and obedient son, Kiel. Don’t forget that. God has a great plan for your life; always obey and honor Him in everything you do. Happy 13th birthday, Kiel! We, your family, are just here for you... We are proud of you. Your siblings are all looking up to you and are all cheering you on. They adore you so much, Kuya. Please lead them well. We love you! #Kiel #13 #OfficiallyATeen
Oyo and Kristine adopted Kiel, whose full first name is Kristian Daniel, before they got married in 2011. Kiel has four younger siblings: Ondrea Bliss, Kaleb Hanns, Marvic Valentin II, and Vittorio Isaac, whom the Sotto family welcomed into the world on August 3, 2021.
Happy birthday, Kiel!
