Last August 18, GMA artist Kate Valdez got to celebrate her 17th birthday in advance (her actual birthday falls on August 21). Encantadia’s Mira got to bond with some of her fans (from Kateelicious and Kate Cuties fan groups) at Nail Cocktales BGC. The nail salon branch is owned by her fellow Kapuso actress Rich Asuncion who gave the pampering package as a gift to Kate. Organized by her talent agency GMA Artist Center, the event turned out to be fun and intimate with her dad Edmond Sisante around. Top One Project’s Joshua Jacobe was tapped to be the event’s host (more on that later!).

Event sponsors: GMA Artist Center, Goldilocks, and San Miguel Products Jelly Ace

The birthday girl arrived early and immediately took photos of her cake.

Daddy and daughter goals! Kate was so early, she got to bond with her dad first.

Dad-slash-photographer. You can easily tell how close they are!

Daddy Edmond and Kate. We learned that Kate’s mom usually accompanies her to showbiz commitments. Since Mommy Teresita couldn’t make it that day, Daddy Edmond came all the way from Cavite to be Kate’s guardian for the day. ♥

Check out this first batch of photos from Kate’s birthday bonding with her fans:
