Elias Modesto gets sweet birthday greetings from parents Ellen Adarna and John Lloyd Cruz


Elias Modesto received lots of love on his fifth birthday.

His parents, Ellen Adarna and John Lloyd Cruz, as well as their respective partners, took to social media to greet him on his special day.

Ellen shared on Instagram a series of baby photos of Elias, as she spoke of how fleeting nature of time.

“5 years today my baby boy [.] Thank you for giving my life purpose and meaning [,] for teaching me patience, empathy and unconditional love. See you in a bit!  Mama loves you forever and ever and ever ,”  the celebrity mom said in the caption.

The actress’ husband, Derek Ramsay, meanwhile, penned a short but sweet message for Elias whom he endearingly called son.

“I’m super proud to be your Papa D! Happy birthday my little babing. Love you son,” wrote the Kapuso hunk, alongside a selfie snap of him with Elias.

Sharing photos of Elias’s simple birthday celebration at home, John Lloyd Cruz simply greeted his son, “Happy Birthday Anak.” 

The actor included photos with his rumored girlfriend Isabel Santos, and Elias with his Sonic the Hedgehog-themed birthday cake. 

He also posted on his “dumpsite” Instagram account a throwback photo of Elias from December 2022. 

Isabel, on the other hand, posted candid snaps with Elias.

“5 to 4ever!,” she wrote in the caption. On her Instagram stories, Isabel shared tender moments between the father and son.

Ellen and John Lloyd welcomed Elias in 2018, and agreed on a co-parenting setup following their split in 2019.
