Angel Locsin recently celebrated her 35th birthday in quarantine with an intimate surprise party, organized by none other than her fiancé, Neil Arce. She posted a video on Instagram that documented her simple celebration where she wrote, "35 and proud."
In the video, Angel can be heard saying that she found out about her fiancé's surprise 30 minutes before it was carried out. LOL!
Angel said, "Nalaman ko yung surprise nila 30 minutes earlier. Hindi pa nila alam na alam ko na. Surprise! Happy birthday to me! Salamat!" In fact, she even had time to arrange the table while waiting for Neil in the dining area!
Angel also revealed that both Neil and her dad, Angelo Colmenares, bought her Darna-themed cakes.
"In-arrange ko na iyong sarili kong surprise tablescape. How sweet di ba na pareho ng birthday cake na ang tatay ko na binigay sa akin at ni Neil. Ang galing," she shared.
As Neil saw Angel with his supposedly surprise set-up, he told the actress, "Maliit na batang di dapat lumabas ng kuwarto niya. Surprise! Happy birthday!"
Toward the end of the video, Angel did not forget to thank her fans and some friends for sending their gifts. She also made a wish before putting out her birthday candle.
Meanwhile, the comments section of her post overflowed with greetings from the birthday girl's celebrity friends.
Among the first was Marian Rivera, who also portrayed the role of Darna. Marian told Angel, "Happy birthday, Gel [heart emoji]." Bubbles Paraiso, one of Angel's closest friends wrote, "Panalo the Darna wearing mask cake topper [clapping emoji]."
Other celebrities like Jhong Hilario, Sarah Lahbati, Amy Austria, Maricar Reyes-Poon, Ashley Ortega, Amy Castillo, and Raymond Gutierrez also followed suit in wishing the Angel a happy birthday.
Over the last few weeks, Angel had been busy with her fundraising and charity projects.
She ended her #UniTentWeStandPH campaign on April 13, and was able to raise a total of P10,956,702.98.
Angel and Neil got engaged in June 2019. The couple first confirmed their relationship in February 2018.
