Kyle Echarri was one sweet Kuya as he wished his younger sister Bella a very happy 12th birthday on January 8. He accompanied his greeting with a carousel of photos and videos highlighting their close relationship, and we can't help but gush.
"Happy birthday my princess! Manong loves you more than anything in the world I hope u always know that," he wrote.
"You’re my little warrior and I’m proud to say my sister is the strongest little girl I know."
"May not always be near but your Manong is always by your side in everything you do. I love you princess more than anything/anyone in the world, and it will always stay that way," he concluded.
Kyle's celeb friends also flocked to the comments section to greet Bella a happy birthday.
The 19-year-old star took to Instagram last year to let everyone know of his sister's condition. "Just yesterday I was told by my family that my little girl was diagnosed with a brain tumor on May 2nd and she wanted to hide it from me because she said she didn’t want me to get stressed while I was working. To say it hurts is an understatement," he penned.
He also shared in a press conference for Beach Bros last July that although he can't be with his sister physically as she completes her treatments abroad, she is always in his mind.
"I can't be with her all the time. Pero it's just better for her to get the treatment done in America. For us, it will be better there," he noted. "Mahal na mahal ko po talaga 'yung kapatid ko. Alam n'yo naman po 'yun since Day 1."
Belated happy birthday, Bella, and we hope you get well soon!
