When it comes to being a stage mom to her kids, no one does it better than Ruffa Gutierrez. The actress and former beauty queen always makes sure to put a spotlight on her two daughters, Lorin and Venice, be it through leaving supportive comments on their IG posts or by joining them in fun TikTok trends.
Most recently, Ruffa took to Instagram to post a birthday greeting for Venice in advance, who's turning 17 on September 11. "Gearing up for Venice's 17th birthday!" the actress says on her post, along with a super sweet and funny dedication post thanking Venice for being a "beautiful, funny, feisty, mischievous, and loving daughter" to her.
"I'll never forget your promise that you will always take care of me until I'm 80 years old. Siguro naman Iâll have a life partner that would continue caring for me from 81 onwards. Come home so we can celebrate your special day. I miss you and I love you sooo much my little Curly Sue," her post reads. She also added the hashtags #MyCutieBunso and #sept11, pertaining to Venice's birthday. If that's not cute, what is?
Along with the sweet dedication, mom Ruffa also threw in both recent and throwback pics to document just how much Venice has blossomed throughout the years.
Members of the Gutierrez family also left loving comments on the post to send some love to Venice. Richard Gutierrez left heart emojis while Sarah Lahbati-Gutierrez, who shares a super close bond with both Lorin and Venice, commented "We love you" on Ruffa's photo set.
If that wasn't enough to establish her cool mom status, Ruffa actually began the countdown to Venice's birthday 10 days before! Her first Insta post for the month of September was dedicated to her bunso, saying, "In ten days, my beautiful baby girl @venicebektas turns seventeen."
Happy birthday, Venice!
