On January 25, 2017, Ysabel Ortega, the daughter of former Senator Lito Lapid with singer Michelle Ortega, turned 18.

But her debut party was held 15 days later, February 8, at the Sampaguita Gardens in Quezon City.

The Kapamilya debutante looked lovely in her La Mariée Ph pink dress.

She was styled by Perry Tabora, while Denise Ochoa and Jaymar Lahaylahay took charge of her make-up and hair, respectively.

She also wore a custom Sheiralyn dress.

Aside from her family and friends, one of Ysabel's special guests was none other than President Rodrigo Duterte.

During his speech, the President gave Ysabel a love advice.

He said, "Alam mo, you are young, you are beautiful, and a simple woman.

"There's always time in this world. Time to be happy. Time to be sad. Time for victory. Time for defeat."

Like a father, he said, "Sa buhay mo, take it from me, do not be in a hurry to get emotionally involved.

"Hayaan mo muna silang to adore you—a lot of guys will. But do not fall into the trap.

"Do not hurry. Nakakasira talaga [ng buhay] iyan pa-in love, in love na iyan. Make yourself an exception."

He noted that the right one will come at the right time.

President Duterte added, "Just remain beautiful.

"Enjoy your beauty as it's a God-given gift, and grow up to be a young beautiful woman and a good mother someday.

"Happy birthday, and may your beauty last for a thousand years."
