MANILA, Philippines - Actress and television host Mariel Rodriguez received a “cheesy” birthday gift from her husband Robin Padilla.

In an interview with “Showbiz News Ngayon” on Wednesday, Rodriguez revealed that her husband bought her 5 kilos of Mozzarella cheese as a birthday present.

“Sobra akong into Mozzarella ngayon,” she admitted.

To prove how thrilled she was with Padilla’s gift, she added, “Every time nga na binubuksan ko yung ref namin natutuwa ako, so ngayon excited na rin ako umuwi sa bahay. Gagawa ako ng salad.”

Other than the cheese, Mariel said that Padilla also gave her a surprise birthday party last night.

Padilla, along with some of Rodriguez’s fans, organized a special celebration for the birthday girl.

“Nagulat ako, akala ko magdi-dinner lang kami ni Robin kasama yung lolo at lola ko. Nagulat ako nandoon lahat [ng fans ko]. Sobrang saya ko,” Rodriguez shared.

Rodriguez has just turned 27 years old.

With a successful career and and a loving husband by her side, she said she couldn’t wish for anything more at this point in her life.

“I really cannot ask for anything more. I hope na one day I can repay the goodness, the kindness that you guys are showering me,” she said.
