MANILA - Singer-host Billy Crawford took to social media to express his happiness as his rumored girlfriend and "It's Showtime" co-host Coleen Garcia surprised him on his birthday today, May 16.

On Instagram, Crawford thanked Garcia for surprising him on his birthday, which he referred to as "more memorable than others."

He did not give further details.

"Thank you for making my birthday more memorable than others! @coleengarcia you've been awake since 4 am but you managed to surprise me for my birthday. You make me happy! Happier than you think! Thanks you for sacrificing and putting up with all my crap. Red eyes and all. Happy birthday to me. Thanks for the surprise!!! Wow, I got to figure out how to do it to you!!! Damnit," he wrote.

Also on Instagram, Garcia posted her birthday greeting to Crawford.

"Happy birthday to the crazy man who turns every single day into a beautiful adventure. Thank you for all the smiles! They're always bigger when you're around. :)," she wrote.

Crawford rose to fame in the 1980s as a member of the defunct variety show "That's Entertainment."

He then became known around Europe and Asia for his hit songs such as "Bright Lights."

Last January, Crawford admitted that he is courting Garcia but was quick to add that she was not the third party that led to his split with singer Nikki Gil.
