“[Salamat] LORD sa regalong di namin inaasahan ng asawa ko (Thank you Lord for the gift that my husband and I did not expect),” Abella added.
Manalo likewise shared the good news via his own Facebook account, posting the same photo and thanking those behind their success.
“Sa mga kapwa online sellers na nag tiwala. Sa mga zuki na nanood, nakitawa, nakiiyak, nakiaway, bumili, nag soli, naging kaibigan, naging pamilya. Maraming salamat. Never namin na imagine nung nag sisimula kami ng mrs ko na magkakaroon kami ng ganito noon [six] years ago,” Manalo said.
(To my fellow online sellers who trusted us. To our zukis who watched us, laughed with us, cried with us, fought with us, bought our products, those who returned them, those who became our friends and family. Thank you very much. My wife and I would never have guessed that we will have this when we started six years ago.)
Maraming salamat Lord! Nasabi na ng asawa ko lahat ng gusto namin sabihin, salamat talaga po Lord! Iba ka gumalaw. Ikaw…ADVERTISEMENT
Fellow celebrities, meanwhile, congratulated the couple on their new milestone. For one, Camille Prats commented on Abella’s post, “Soooo proud of you ga!!!”
“Happy for you [heart emoji] @lovelyabella_,” Angelika Dela Cruz said.
Prior to buying a house, Abella and Manalo were also able to buy a new car also with the help of their earnings from their online selling business.
“[Mangarap] ka lang sabayan mo ng sipag at tiyaga PROMISE makakamit mo,” Abella said then on Instagram when she announced buying the car they named “Mic Mic.”
(Just keep on dreaming and pair it with hard work and patience, promise you will reach your goal.)
