21 May – It was an extra special birthday celebration for Sylvia Sanchez, who recently celebrated the special day with her loved ones.

On 20 May, the 49-year-old actress who recovered from COVID-19 earlier this month, posted a video from the surprise event, where the whole family sang happy birthday while clad in their pyjamas while she was heard laughing gleefully.

She wrote, "So grateful I was still blessed enough to celebrate my life today. Although the situation we are in isn't ideal, I know that there is hope and light at the end of the tunnel. Just have faith."

"Thank you to everyone who sent their love and light towards me today. Through these trying times, I wish all of you safety and good health. Happy Quarantine birthday to me!" she added.

On the other hand, daughter Ria Atayde took to social media to wish Sanchez a happy birthday with a quote from Robert Munsch's "I'll Love You Forever", which read, "I'll love you forever. I'll like you for always (even if we fight sometimes). As long as I'm living, your baby I'll be."
