Senator Miguel Zubiri, Audrey's mother Dette Aquino-Tan, and her kids Adriana and Juami were the masterminds of this carefully planned surprise.

For his wife Audrey Tan-Zubiri's birthday, Senator Miguel Zubiri decided to throw a truly unforgettable surprise party.

In the video, a stunned Audrey opens the front door to a group of her closest family and friends greeting her a happy birthday.

Audrey was clad in a red dress and was gorgeous as always.

But the real highlight was her hair was all done in rollers!

Watch her reaction below:

Audrey recounts the night to Town & Country, "I usually set my hair in curlers before leaving for parties and take them off in the car before getting down to maximize the volume.

"That night, Migs had told me that we were going to a friend's birthday dinner so I went about my usual routine and set my hair.

"On our way out, Migs suggested we drop off our youngest son, Santi, at my mom's house, one street away from our home, for dinner, since the two older kids were there and we would be out too."

She continues, "In the car, Migs received a call from our daughter, Adriana, saying her brother Juanmi fell and was looking for me.

"Naturally, I said I would go down and check on him when we arrived at my mom's home.

"Since we were not yet at the party and just at my mom's house, I went down and kept my curlers on.

"Migs was carrying Santi and asked me to 'Get the door', which I did and that was when I received the big surprise!"

Audrey was completely stunned!

First, it didn't immediately sink in that the surprise party was for her and that, that very second, she was still wearing her full set of curlers!

"At that point, I didn't know whether to run back out to the car, hide behind Mig,s or what!

"I ended up going behind the door with my friends helping remove my curlers while laughing because, by then, the whole situation had become pretty funny and served as a great way to kick off the night's celebration," the celebrant says.

Of the surprise, Audrey said on Instagram, "I can't stop laughing over that SURPRISE!

"Surprised to see everyone and then that moment when I realized I'm still in my curlers and standing in front of all my friends and family!" She thanked her mother Dette Aquino-Tan and husband Miguel for the giving her the most memorable birthday ever.

Planning the surprise wasn't an easy feat.

In fact, it was a combined effort from the whole family.

Audrey's mother Dette took charge of inviting the celebrant's closest friends, with the help of the couple's daughter Adriana.

Miguel then invited other family and friends while coming up with, in Audrey's words, "a believable story for last night."

As she puts it, "So believable I kept my rollers on thinking I was just checking on Juanmi!"

The celebration's guests included Anna Palabyab-Rufino, Jonathan Crespi, Stephanie Zubiri-Crespi, Tim Yap, Dawn Zulueta-Lagdameo, Vicky Zubiri, Tootsy Angara, Tessa Prieto-Valdes, Ana Lorenzana De Ocampo, and Kathy Yap-Huang.
