Nikki Valdez’s daughter is finally a teenager, so the proud mom took the opportunity to give her lovely daughter 13 affirmations which correspond to her age, as per the actress’ Instagram page today, July 29.
“Happy Birthday my darling Olivia,” she said. “As you enter another milestone in your life, here are 13 (more) things I want to celebrate about you.”
According to Valdez, there was never a day that her daughter missed coming to her room in the morning, to say “good morning Mama and Dada,” and to hug and kiss. The kid makes the “sweetest love letters” especially to her “Nonna.” She also always comes up with “a video, greeting card [and] artwork” for them during special occasions, to express her “love and gratitude.”
Valdez commended her daughter for her graciousness, her trust and openness about her dreams and goals, her sense of humor, her willingness to apologize, her compassion and talents, her receptivity to advice, and finally, her smile.
“There are more than 13 things we love about you but one thing is for sure — you are and will always be a blessing to our family,” Valdez said.
Valdez has always been fully supportive of Olivia who was born with Symbrachydactyly, a congenital malformation which affected the development of her fingers. Valdez also advocates for support for children with similar condition and special needs. JB
