Joshua Espineli Garcia in real life, the Kapamilya actor had been one of the most promising stars of his generation.
The now 22-year-old actor who recently celebrated his birthday guested in ABS-CBN’s morning talk show ‘Magandang Buhay’ last Monday, October 6.
A simple birthday surprised was held on the said show. As part of the traditional birthday celebration, the hosts Karla Estrada, Jolina Magdangal and Melai Cantiveros offered him a cute birthday cake he blew on the show.
As part of the surprises they had for the birthday boy, the hosts handed him a letter from his mother.
It can be remembered that Joshua once opened up about his family. He came from a broken family, he has half-siblings on the father side and he also has maternal half-siblings.
It’s not a secret to the public, that the young actor grew up with his grandmother and priest uncle.
The letter which came from his mom is a letter of love and support of a mother to her son. Although a short message, you can see on Joshua’s face the emotion he had upon reading it.
“Thank you for loving me and you are always welcome sa bahay namin,” Joshua said after reading the letter.
Joshua couldn’t hold back his tears anymore when Jolina handed him the other birthday surprise from his mom. It was pages from a book about film making.
According to the actor, this is what he wanted and hoped to learn int he future.
“Sa ngayon film ang gusto ko. Sa ngayon ha, pero baka pagdating ng panahon ay mabago pa siya,” he said.
“Adik kasi ako sa photography at saka ‘yung mga direktor nakaka-inspire sila kapag dinidirek nila ako, parang gusto ko itong trabao na ito,” Joshua added.
It was a moment where no words can explain the feelings of a child longing and thankful for his mom regardless of what happened to them in the past.
Joshua learned one lesson during his 22nd birthday.
Joshua Garcis is indeed on of those very genuine and soft hearted person. Happy Birthday Joshua.
