Actor Aljur Abrenica accompanied his fiancee at the party.

On Instagram, the Kapuso actress said she would be willing to give everything to "the most intricate and delicate work of art" she ever created.

Kylie posted a photo early today, may 19, and wrote, "This is it. Very soon it will be real, you will be in my arms. It's almost the end of my pregnancy journey and start of my official mothering journey.

"After everything I've heard I'm excited about the stories and lessons that will unfold in our version of things. The fear has now become just a whisper and I've been mentally preparing myself for total submission and surrender to you.

"I always approached work like this. Giving it all, maybe too much. Only recently did I realize that you are the most intricate and delicate work of art I could ever create.

"From your cells to your brain, to your heart and skin, the iris of your eyes and the sound of your voice. So you deserve more than sweat, time and lack of sleep. You deserve total submission of the soul."

The soon-to-be first-time mom expressed how excited she is to meet her "little prince."

Kylie continued, "For someone who seeks always to see the beauty in art and poetry and wisdom in life, I now have painted the most precious being and it's only the beginning of so many other realizations to come.

"The strength you give me is unexplainable. My litol prince, I really can't wait to meet you. I can't wait to go mad for you. I've always been mad and now for someone worth going mad for. Family. Hehe. we love you.

"P.S you sleep like your dad. I'm excited what else you have in common. I'm excited to learn all about you, can't wait to watch the seeds of your personality blossom right before my eyes. Ugh. Basta, you have me and daddy. It's all about you now, actually us 3 @ajabrenica."
