    Alwyn’s lengthy Mother’s Day greeting comes on the heels of a decision his wife Jennica Uytingco recently made that sparked a heated discussion on social media. The dad of two was understandably emotional. “Hindi ko alam kung ano ang naisip ninyo para madali [kayong] maghusga sa kanya. Pero wala kayong clue kung gaano kalaki ang sacrifice niya para lang sa pamilya namin,” part of his post read.

    Alwyn also shared what his wife goes through every day, which would sound familiar to many moms. “…sa likod ng mga ngiti sa post niya ay isang tao na gabi-gabi nagpupuyat, napapagod, nag-aaral, nag-aasikaso ng negosyo, umiiyak, nababaliw pero patuloy pa rin na bumabangon at lumalaban sa pamilya niya. Ang masasabi ko na lang ay ako na nga yata ang pinakamasuwerteng tao dahil binigay siya sakin ng Panginoon.”

    It’s not easy raising three kids, but Doug shares motherhood has been Cheska’s “greatest calling.” He says, “It takes a couple to raise a family, but it takes a mother to truly make it work.”

    Dingdong Dantes

    After giving birth barely a month ago, Marian Rivera has not released a family photo. But on May 12 she and Dingdong finally showed off their son Sixto in a special family portrait. Dingdong captioned it, “A realized dream — all because of you, @marianrivera. Happy Mother’s Day to this little family’s SuperMom.” Kilig!

    Their fans never doubt Hayden's devotion to wife, Vicki Belo, but he still thinks he is not worthy. “But God gave me the privilege to be the one to take care of her and protect her. So I take that as a calling I take seriously,” he says. Hayden adds that he hopes Vicki will stay healthy and happy because she is “the lynchpin of the family.”

    Jim Bacarro

    Jimmy Alapag


    While thanking wife LJ Moreno, Jimmy also makes an excellent point about Mother’s Day. “We celebrate you today and every day!” he says.

    Mothers are queens in their own right, and on Mother’s Day, Marc sweetly reminded his wife Danica Sotto of her reign with a declaration of his love. “Salamat sa pagmamahal at pag-aalaga sa aming tatlo. Alam mo na yon ‘di ko na need sabihin pa basta mahal kita!”

    “Masaya ang buhay araw-araw dahil sa’yo” is Mark’s short message to his wife, Jolina Magdangal. Truly, every day should be a celebration of a mother’s love!

    Paul Jake Castillo

    Dads wouldn’t know what to do without moms around, and Paul Jake definitely admits to this! “Being a mom is super hard,” he says to his wife, Kaye Abad. “I don’t know what me and Pio Joaquin would do without you…Love you to the moon and back!”

    Philmar Alipayo

    The dad-to-be is feeling a little guilty that Andi Eigenmann’s pregnancy is temporarily halting her surfing activities, but Philmar promises she will be back in the waters soon. “Waya na anay surf this time, pero promise you will surf more than me next year!” he says. (No more surfing this time, but I promise you will surf more than me next year!)

    Rich Alvarez

    Last year was a challenging one for the couple, most especially Kyla, who suffered from two miscarriages, so Rich’s Mother’s Day greeting for his wife was brimming with hope. He even accompanied it with a cute video! “You sacrifice so much for our family and we just appreciate you for everything that you do for us,” the former cager writes. “Let’s keep praying and hoping for the best. Maybe Toby will have a sibling soon. I love you. We love you!”
