YES! (Philippines) - - Celebrity Birthday - TEXT BY GABBY REYES LIBARIOS PHOTOS COUR­TESY OF GMA ARTIST CEN­TER

There were no gim­micks or drama when Miguel Tanfelix turned 19. In­stead of throw­ing a lav­ish party, he chose to cel­e­brate his spe­cial day with a sim­ple get‑to­gether for the peo­ple who mat­ter the most to him: his fam­ily, friends, and fans.

The event was made ex­tra spe­cial by the sur­prise ap­pear­ance of Bianca Umali, his long‑time on­screen love‑ team part­ner. Bianca, who grew up to­gether with Miguel in show busi­ness, could only wish him well: “I wish you more bless­ings. I wish only good things for you.”

The Ka­puso ac­tor started his show­biz ca­reer when he was just five years old, through the GMA artista search Starstruck Kids in 2004. If he has made it this far, one can as­sume that Miguel Tanfelix will be in the busi­ness for a whole lot longer. •

Miguel’s birth­day cel­e­bra­tion would not have been com­plete with­out Bianca Umali. The two have main­tained that they’re just good friends. But their sweet­ness for each other, even if there are no cam­eras around, has al­ways been there.

Aside from en­joy­ing good food, Miguel’s fans also got to bring home loot bags with good­ies from GMA Artist Cen­ter and BUM, the lo­cal cloth­ing brand that Miguel has been en­dors­ing for years.

No celebrity birth­day cel­e­bra­tion would be as much fun if it didn’t in­clude loyal fans. Miguel’s party ac­com­mo­dated 150 of his sup­port­ers from such fan clubs as Miguel Lovers, Miguel Holics, Team Biguel, and Bianca Elite.

Miguel’s spe­cial day was graced by his mom Grace. What’s Grace’s wish for her son? For him to fin­ish his stud­ies even if he has show­biz com­mit­ments!
