ICYMI, AC Bonifacio just shared her surpise debut video on her YouTube channel and it looked sooo fab! Star Magic threw an intimate Riverdale-themed party to celebrate her 18th birthday and she had no clue! Check out these photos to see what happened at the event.
Here's AC getting all glammed up for what she thought was going to be a photo shoot for work. Little did she know, the event was her very own birthday celebration!
Take a look at her reaction once the curtains opened up, revealing the *gorgeous* venue. So adorbs!
The set-up was inspired by Riverdale's Pop's Chock'lit Shoppe Diner. AC has an upcoming stint in the series' fifth season and we're so excited!
She even got a sweet greeting from Direk Lauren Dyogi!
But the most touching part of the video was when AC gave her birthday message to her guests. She shared that she and her mom, Cherry Lapidario, really persevered to achieve this milestone in her life. "Mom and I have worked so hard to get to where I'm at, and we went through so much."
In a heartwarming speech, she thanked everyone who supported her career journey. "I'm just very grateful now. I have all these people who are always there for me. Parang I have a name, I guess. It took a really long time and I'm so grateful for everyone who's been on that journey with me po." She even mentioned that just by seeing Direk Lauren, it made her think, "Wow, I have a name. I made it. He knows me."
You go, girl! We're so proud of you, AC!
