- Charlene Gonzales turned 42 years old
- Her husband Aga Muhlach took to Instagram and posted a “throwback” birthday greeting
- He calls her God’s greatest gift to him and their children
Former Miss Universe finalist and actress Charlene Gonzales turned 42 years old earlier this month.
After establishing a career in Philippine showbiz and becoming the face of the country in the world stage, Gonzales eventually married fellow artist Aga Muhlach in 2001.
And as she celebrated her birthday, her ex-teen heartthrob husband posted a “throwback” photo of the former beauty queen on his official Instagram account; narrating how his wife earned praises from his late mother Anita Aquino, passing away in 2007:
“I remember vividly a few days before my mom passed away, in her hospital bed she told me to come near her and told me ‘Ga wag ka na magalala at malungkot, handa na ako mawala. Binigay na ng Panginoon Ang kaisa-isang dalangin ko para sayo. Hindi Ang pera at Kung ano mang matiryal na natatamasa mo ngayon kungdi ang dalangin ko noon pa na makatagpo at makapag-asawa ka ng babae na hihigitan pa ang pagmamahal na binigay ko sayo. Si Charlene Ang pinaka magandang nangyari sa buhay mo, wag mo siyang pababayaan! Habang buhay kang magpapasalamat Sa ating mahal na Panginoon ha.’
[Dear, do not worry and be sad, I am ready to pass on. The Lord has already given you the one prayer I have for you. It isn’t money or any material thing you have achieved now but my prayer for you ever since is to find and marry a woman who will exceed the love I have given you. Charlene is the most beautiful person to have happened in your life so do not abandon her. Be forever grateful for our Lord, alright?]”
Muhlach was all praises for his “b”:
“you really are God’s greatest gift to me and our children. I know you hate this photo I took of you! Haha! but the real beauty that’s inside you is what comes out on this one! You’re really beautiful inside and out Happy birthday my love! God bless your good heart more and more. you really are an answered prayer. Stay the way you are!! Cheers! like I would always tell you.. “It just gets better”!! Happy birthday b!!!”
The two have been happily together for more than 15 years now; raising their twin children Andrés and Atasha.
