LOOK: Jackie Forster’s heartwarming message to Kobe Paras on his 21st birthday
It may already be 21 years since Jackie Forster gave birth to son Kobe Paras, but for her, it feels like it only happened yesterday.
The actress took a trip down memory lane in celebration of his 21st birthday, as seen in her Instagram post on Wednesday, Sept. 19. Her video showed Paras as a wide-eyed baby, along with several photos of them together, and a moment where Paras got a puppy as a gift.
And like any mom, Forster imparted some words of wisdom for her son. She said that by the time he has a child of his own, and has that “burning butterfly sensation” of when he/she does something, he will realize that it is the same feeling she felt for him during that age.
“That will be the only time you will begin to understand how much I love you,” she wrote. “That’s when you will begin to comprehend how deep and how strong my passion is for wanting only the best for you.”
Forster also thanked Paras’ rumored girlfriend, Ateneo volleybelle Ponggay Gaston, “for being so sweet and caring.”
“Excited for the future but live in the moment and enjoy the now,” she told her son. “Stay happy my love.”
Meanwhile, Paras appears to be loving his “li’l baby” on his birthday, as seen in his Instagram Story.
Paras, his older brother Andre and Forster reunited last May, after over a decade of no contact. JB
