MANILA, Philippines - Child star Zaijian Jaranilla received an iPad and an iPhone 4 as birthday gifts from his "Lorenzo's Time" co-stars Carmina Villaroel and  Gina Pareño.

Jaranilla, popularly known as Santino in the phenomenal hit "May Bukas Pa," turned 11 last August 23.

"Kasi mahal talaga namin si Zaijan, napakabait at loveable. Nakita din namin na very hardworking 'yung bata, so noong birthday niya si Mama Gina niya binigyan siya ng iPhone. Kasi tinanong namin kung ano ang wish list niya so iniisa isa naming tinutupad at tina-try naming matupad," Villaroel said.

"So since may nagbigay na ng iPhone 4, eh mayroon akong iPad hinihiram-hiram niya, nilalaro niya. Minsan nanghihiram siya sa ibang kasamahan namin so naisip ko bigyan ko kaya. So bilhan ko na lang. So 'yun tuwang tuwa naman siya noong binubuksan niya. Makikita mo na very appreciative siya at masaya siya, makikita mo na lagi siyang masaya," Villaroel added.

Jaranilla, Pareño and Villaroel are now busy finishing the last three weeks of "Lorenzo's Time."

"Lorenzo's Time" air weeknights after "Walang Hanggan."
