Isabel Oli recently opened up on why her 39th birthday is “melancholic” for her. The model-actress turned a year older on Tuesday, October 20.
In an Instagram post, she wrote that she’s celebrating her special day without her “dear other half” John Prats because he’s “locked-in” somewhere far away.
To add to her melancholic feeling, her siblings and their families in Manila were not able to celebrate with her because of the pandemic.
“Way different from my past birthdays. This one is quite melancholic for me. Celebrating 39 years of existence without my dear other half ‘cause he is currently in a locked in taping somewhere far away,” she wrote.
This is why the mother of three said her birthday wishes are for this pandemic to be over soon and a vaccine that will be available to everyone.
“Praying that for the remaining months and days of this year, CoVid will no longer infect any of us, that God will miraculously remove its presence from our country and everything will be back to how it was,” she wrote.
Despite the negativity from these times, Isabel said she’s still trying her best not to wallow in it.
“I am still and will forever be thankful!!! Couldn’t thank God enough for giving me my husband, my adorable kids, my family and loved ones, dear friends and supporters,” she said.
Meanwhile, her husband John posted a sweet birthday message for his “wonderful” wife along with their throwback photos.
“Walang sawa ang pasasalamat ko sayo para sa lahat, lalo na sa pag aalaga mo sa ating mga anak,” he wrote.
Despite the “physical distancing,” he also managed to organize a birthday celebration for his wife via Zoom.
