Every year, we always make it a point to look back on how the Queen of Hearts Kathryn Bernardo has celebrated her birthdays. We watched her grow, and witnessed how she blossomed from being the Teen Queen—to today’s everything Queen! 

For Kathryn, celebrating her many birthdays comes in different ways, from the simplest get-togethers with family and friends, to a grandiose debut party. As she turns 24 on March 26, let's reminisce about Kathryn Bernardo's birthdays through the years:

Seventeen in Subic

Apparently, then-Teen Queen Kathryn spent most of her birthdays by the water. It all started when she celebrated her 17th birthday in Subic with her closest friends, including actress Miles Ocampo.

Kathryn’s beau Daniel Padilla—who was a rumored ka-MU (mutual understanding) back then—brought his band Parking 5.

The pack looked like they had fun cruising on the yacht.

According to PUSH.com, Kathryn offered her birthday celebration to Mommy Min. “Actually ang celebration na ‘to hindi lang para sa akin because it has been 18 years simula ng pinanganak ako ni Mama. Thank you so much na pinalaki mo ako ng ganito. ‘Yung celebration na ‘to hindi lang para sa akin, celebration natin ‘tong dalawa.”

Of course, the most kilig part was brought to you by Daniel who was already in a mutual relationship with her. He was Kathryn’s last dance. In the Philippines, the last dance must be with either a boyfriend, or someone special.

Getting cozy in Albay

After a whole year, Kathryn opted for a more intimate beach celebration with Daniel and some of her showbiz friends including Khalil Ramos, Dominic Roque, Marlann Flores, Bryan Santos, and Pamu Pamorada for her 19th birthday.

No longer a teen

The Queen of Hearts could not resist celebrating birthdays in local tourist spots, so for her 20th birthday, Kathryn chose the exclusive Balesin island in Quezon Province.

Kathryn tagged along her best friends, blogger Arisse De Santos and Ateneo Lady Eagle Trina Guytingco. Of course, King of Hearts Daniel was always in sight, this time with one of his best pals Patrick Sugui. He was ‘still’ just Kathryn’s rumored boyfriend. Sneaky couple!

Kathryn was also more confident and carefree in Balesin as she wore a crop top showing off her lean abs.

Here’s Daniel dropping hints of their relationship. The actor wrote on the sand:  “Happy Birthday Bali!” 

Bal is their term of endearment.

She’s feeling 22!

Ending her streak of celebrating birthdays in local water tourist spots, Kathryn finally decided to spend her 22nd birthday in California, USA,  with her love team partner and still rumored boyfriend Daniel.

Kathryn, together with her crew, went on a wine-tasting tour in Napa Valley. They celebrated her birthday in an intimate dinner followed by a quick stop in Las Vegas Nevada.

Fun Fact: five months after her birthday, Kathryn and Daniel admitted their relationship for more than 5 years at last. 

Kathryn in a gay club? Yes!

Who would have thought that the once shy Teen Queen would someday unleash her grown-up persona, and celebrate her 23rd birthday in a gay club? You heard that right, because Kathryn partied along with the drag queens of O Bar, known for its fabulous impersonations, for her birthday.

She was also with her glam team and best friend Juan Miguel Severo.

Her boyfriend Daniel even allowed her to go on her own as he was nowhere to be seen in the Instagram photos. This looked fun! 

Still, family is everything for Kathryn as she celebrated via a private and personal celebration with her family and boyfriend.
