MANILA --- Claudine Barretto was caught clueless when asked on the whereabouts of her husband Raymart Santiago Saturday afternoon, when the actress held a birthday party for their daughter.


The 33-year-old actress threw a belated celebration of Sabina's birthday in Quezon City on Saturday, two weeks after her adopted daughter turned 7 last June 21.

"Dapat 'yung party niya was last Saturday, kaya lang hindi natuloy kasi nga nagkasakit ako, so 'yun," Barretto said.

Barretto has another child, Santino, with Santiago.

With Sabina turning a year older, the actress related that they've found new ways to bond as mother and daughter.

"Mag-wa-watch lang ng movie habang nagpapa-foot spa or habang nag-re-relax, kasi dalaga-dalaga na rin."

The actress admitted she isn't too thrilled with the idea of her daughter being "dalaga," saying, "Huwag sanang masyadong mabilis!"

Unlike in Sabina's previous birthday celebrations, Barretto shared that the themed party held Saturday actually had her daughter's input.

"Tinatanong niya rin naman ako kung ano 'yung mga ideas ko, mga concepts na maganda, so we're very open naman sa isa't-isa. Ngayon meron na siyang input talaga, pero ever since naman I'd really ask them, Santino and Sabina," she said.

Noticeably absent from Saturday's party, however, was the children's father, who, by the admission of Barretto's mother, no longer lives under the same roof as the actress.

When asked about Santiago's absence, Barretto said she had informed her husband and his other family members of the occasion.

"Wala siya. Alam niyang may party. Siguro naman alam niya. Alam niya naman na birthday ng anak niya. Pinaalam ko sa kanya at saka sa pamilya niya," she said.
