Atasha and Andres Muhlach turn 17 years old today, November 5, and their mom Charlene Gonzalez took to Instagram to greet her twins.
Charlene wrote a heartfelt birthday message to Atasha and Andres, thanking them both for being a part of her and husband Aga Muhlach's life.

Early this year, Atasha and Andres were launched as endorsers of a fast-food chain.
Both still shy in front of the media, they remarked that showbiz wasn't their top priority yet.
"Studies first, but whatever happens, happens," Atasha said.
Andres agreed, "Same goes for me."
