Kapuso child star Jillian Ward spent her 7th birthday with kids at the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Center for Children in Quezon City.
The lead star of the now-defunct Daldalita invited PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) to join her celebration as she prepared some food and a lot of giveaways for the less-fortunate children.
When asked why she wanted to spend her birthday at the DSWD, she innocently said, "Kasi gusto ko po silang maging masaya lalo."
Her mom, Jeniffer Ward, revealed to PEP that the last time Jillian went to DSWD for a taping, the kids really wanted to see her but were not allowed since the shoot was going on.
"Opo. Kaya alam na po ng daddy ko kung saan yung DSWD and sabi ko po, dito na lang po ako magbi-birthday," Jillian said about having taped there before.
Mommy Jenny also said that some of the kids cried as they really wanted to take a glimpse of the child star they admired.
So Jillian promised the kids she will be spending her birthday at the institute.
BIRTHDAY WISH. Whenever members of the press would ask Jillian what her birthday wish or wishes are, she was very consistent with her answer:
"Birthday wish ko po parating masaya, good health, at saka happy family."
About the birthday gift she has received that day, Jillian proudly showed them to the press people.
She even said, "Lahat po matatanggap ko, lahat ng ibibigay nila kasi hindi naman po ako choosy."
When it comes to the material gift she wanted to receive, she said, "Gusto ko po yung car-car.
"Yung car-car po, yung car, yung sasakay ako, 'tapos ako yung magda-drive," Jillian was referring to a ride-on toy car.
Not to forget to share her blessings, she gave gifts to the children of DSWD.
SCHOOLING. The seven-year-old child star is an incoming grade one student next school year.
