MANILA - Melai Cantiveros and Jason Francisco, former "Pinoy Big Brother" housemates who found love during their 133-day stint in the reality show, celebrated two family events on Sunday.

Their daughter, Amelia Lucille, turned 1 last April 3, while Cantiveros turned 27 on Monday.

Nicknamed Mela, the Francisco baby dressed up as a princess to the "Sofia The First"-themed party. Cantiveros and Francisco also came as "royalties" with crowns, as seen in photos on the couple's joint Instagram page.

In the caption of a family photo, Mela was quoted as addressing her mother, saying: "Ikaw ang pinaka mabait, maganda at pinaka natatangi namin ni papa. Mahal na mahal ka namin, lalo na si papa, sobrang mahal ka niya. 'Di ka niya ipapagpalit sa iba, sabi niya sa 'kin.

"Wish ko po sana mgkaroon na ako ng kapatid! Mama, you're the best and I wish you more blessings to share and especially a good health for you, para marami ka pa mapasaya. This, all we pray to Almighty God, in Jesus' name."

Cantiveros and Francisco got married on December 9, 2013, three months after the comedienne announced their pregnancy. It was a milestone that delighted their long-time fans, dubbed "Melason," and their past housemates.
