Anyone who follows Xian Lim would know that he is such a loving and dedicated son to his mom, Mary Anne Lim. His feed is no short of posts with her on various occasions— from their out-of-town trips to hanging out at home to celebrating their many milestones together!
On May 31, Mary Anne turned another year older, and of course, Xian wanted the whole world to know just how much his mom meant to him. In a heartwarming Instagram post, the 31-year-old actor-host penned a message to her and wrote, "To my dearest mother, happiest birthday to you! Thank you for all the sacrifices you made sa pagpapalaki sa akin. Thank you for always being the person I can count on. Thank you for supporting me in everything I do and loving me unconditionally. We may have our disagreements on certain matters at times but at the end of the day, our bond and love for each other will always prevail.
"I love you so much mom and I am very lucky to have you by my side. When times get rough for me, you always know how to listen and cheer me up. Lastly, out of the million reasons to be grateful...Thank you for giving me life and bringing me to this world. I wish we have a thousand more birthdays to celebrate together."
Referencing the gorgeous throwback photo he posted of her, Xian wrote, "I hope you don't mind that I took this picture. I know you're a private person but the whole world deserves to see how beautiful you are. I love you 4000."
In the comments section, Mary Anne couldn't help but gush over her son's words: "Thank you Xian, I'm so happy you made me cry. You are God's gift to me, a wonderful son."
You can see more of their lovable mother-and-son moments in Xian's YouTube channel, specifically his latest vlog where he takes Mary Anne shopping for her motorcycle gear! The 23-minute-long video is filled with fun-loving moments as they exchange light-hearted banter. But they also turn serious when they talk about how challenging their life was in the States. ICYDK, Mary Anne raised Xian as a single parent and had to make a lot of sacrifices to provide for them. Yup, we can't help but love their relationship!
