But that's not all she got though! Her longtime boyfriend and onscreen partner Xian Lim posted a bunch of their couple pics over the years—cute selfies, beach pics, and out-of-the-country getaways—along with the most loving message.
"I just want to say that I'm the luckiest man in the world to always have you by my side," he started.
"Naaalala ko pa nung first date natin, you told me that you're worried that what we have might not last because of this crazy world we live in. Naysayers had their own versions of what they think we have. So many doubts, so many people trying to keep us apart. Many years later, nandito pa rin tayo para sa isa't isa, nagmamahalan na parang walang bukas."
"I love you so much Kim, always remember that. Through thick and thin, through ups and downs, know that I'll always be here loving you every day, every hour, and every second. HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY TO YOU. Enjoy this special day!"
