I am grateful for the gift of life, for my family, for good health, for the safety and good health of my husband and children," added Banawa, who also paid tribute to her husband Ryan Crisostomo.

"Thank you so much mahal for always taking care of me, loving me and our children. Thank you for working so hard to provide for our family and for spoiling us so much. I love you! Thank you Mama, Ate and family, for always supporting me in everything that I do and loving me unconditionally. I love you both so much!," Banawa shared.

Banawa also thanked all those who remembered to greet her.
