WATCH: Regine Velasquez captures Ogie Alcasid’s dad joke moment in birthday greeting
Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez marked her husband Ogie Alcasid’s 53rd birthday by treating fans with a hilarious and adorable moment between them.
Velasquez took to Instagram a few hours ago to share a peek into their life as a couple by uploading a snippet of her husband’s dad joke about cats.
“What is the reason of the pusa (cat)?” Alcasid asked his wife while fixing his hair. Velasquez then clarified, “What is the reason of the pusa?”
“Yeah,” Alcasid replied, prompting his wife to finally ask, “What?”
“Cat-wiran,” Alcasid answered, just before he burst out laughing at his own joke.
Velasquez then joined her husband in laughing before asking him, “Tawang tawa ka sa sarili mo? Sa sarili mong joke? Naisip mo pa ‘yun?”
(You really find yourself that funny? Your own joke? You really thought of that?)
“Happy Birthday to my one and only love. Tawang tawa ka na naman sa sarili mo (You find yourself hilarious again) I love you soooooo much baba @ogiealcasid,” Velasquez also said in the post’s caption.
The doting husband then replied to his wife’s post with a short yet sweet message, “Love you with all my heart.”
Alcasid and Velasquez have been married for over nine years. They celebrated their most recent wedding anniversary on Dec. 22, 2019.
Fans and fellow celebrities alike also found the OPM star’s joke hilarious, with some leaving their well-wishes for Alcasid on the said Instagram post.
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY KUYA!!!! @ogiealcasid (lauging emoji),” comedienne Kakai Bautista said. Karla Estrada also greeted him with a simple “Happy birthday (kiss emoji).”
Actress Gladys Reyes likewise said in the comments section, “Happy bday kuya @ogiealcasid Mr. Katinko.” Fellow musician Moira Dela Torre meanwhile just left a bunch of laughing emoji.
Fellow OPM icon Gary Valenciano also paid tribute to his good friend by posting his greetings on his own Instagram account earlier today.
Valenciano gave the definition of the word “genuine” as “not fake or counterfeit” and “not pretended; sincerely felt or expressed” as he commended Alcasid for being one.
“It’s a word that perfectly describes this one individual who has been blessing many including myself, with the way he has lived and walk in the ways of Jesus,” he said.
“Happy bday to you my dear bro @ogiealcasid. May you continue to be showered with endless creative ideas for the times we’re in,” Valenciano added.
Alcasid has been busy even amid the COVID-19 pandemic by holding several online concerts, including fundraisers, and has been hosting his weekly show “OPM Night”, among other projects. JB
