Zoren Legaspi reminds his twins on their 18th birthday "You're still a baby." Take that, Cassy and Mavy. And from their mom Carmina Villarroel: "As long as I'm living, my babies you'll be. I love you so so much..."

Carmina Villarroel and Zoren Legaspi pour all the love in their respective messages for Cassy and Mavy during the twins' 18th birthday celebration.

The Kapuso teens turned 18 on January 6, and had an Oscars-themed post-birthday party a week later on January 12, at One Canvas Events Place in Makati City.

Nice Print Photography shared the highlights reel of the party, and featured their mom and dad's messages for them.

Carmina narrated, "Giving birth to both of you was the happiest day of my life. Having you is one of my greatest blessings.

"I couldn't ask for anything more. I pray that you would continue to grow up to also be a blessing to others.

"I look at the two of you and I realize how time flies. It seems like it was only yesterday when you're just babies.

"And now, look at the two of you."

The Kapuso host-actress was in tears when she addressed Cassy.


She told her, "Cassy, continue to be kind, funny, simple, and humble. Continue to be optimistic, always looking at the brighter side of life.

"I appreciate you being so sensitive to the feelings of the people around you, being the selfless person that you are.

"Even if you want something, you are conscious of the amount that will be spent on you.

"Even if you deserve it, you will always decline and say, 'Mom, it's okay, I don't need it.'

"I love and look forward to our mother-and-daughter time together."

Towards the end of her message, Carmina assured the twins she would always be present for them.

"Remember this guys, remember this ah! I love you forever. I like you for always.

"As long as I'm living, my babies you'll be. I love you so so much, Mavy and Cassy.

"Happy 18th birthday and I wish you all the best."


Zoren, on the other hand, sounded more like a buddy dad in his message to the twins.

He reminded Cassy and Mavy, "You guys have a long way to go about discovering life. You know, 18 doesn't mean you guys are tough, you guys are adults.

"You still have to discover so many things about life. So it's my reminder for them.

"The number 18 only indicates that you are legally [allowed] to drive and drink liquor by human law... but being 18 is still very young.

"You guys will still need our supervision and lectures about life. Please, don't change just because you guys are 18."

He told Mavy, in jest, "Wag kang masyadong maporma, Maverick, a. 'Eighteen na ako man, yow, I'm eighteen! I'm a real guy!'

"No, you're not! You're still a baby!"

To end his message, Zoren told the twins, "Happy birthday again, twins. This is your tatay who will always be a tatay to both of you. We dearly love you both, and may God guide this family."


The twins thanked everyone who shared their 18-year journey with them, and came to the party.

Cassy started, "Thank you guys for coming here. I'm so happy to see my whole work in like... in one place."

For his part, Mavy said, "'Wow!' That was my initial reaction when I saw all of you guys. I actually teared up when I entered there."

Mavy teared up a bit when he delivered his message to their friends and family.

His reaction surprised his sister but he eventually finished his message and said, "From the bottom of my heart and Cassie's heart, thank you so much for coming and attending tonight."
