It is common for people celebrating their 15th birthday, especially in Mexico, to take a moment to thank everyone who has been a part of their special day. However, one celebration went viral when the birthday girl took the opportunity to recognize the effort and affection she has received from her mother and stepfather.
Through TikTok, user Norma Aguirre shared a video of her daughter Angelique’s 15th birthday party. The young woman, dressed in a loose pink dress, stood in the center of the floor with a microphone to express her gratitude to her guests and share a bit of her family history.
“I want to say thank you to my mom for everything. If it weren’t for her, this day would not have been possible. Thank you for what you have done for us (referring to her siblings),” she said. Then, she went on to talk about her father, revealing that he had abandoned them, but she made light of the situation so as not to ruin her big day. She also expressed her gratitude to her stepfather for being like a father to her siblings and for supporting her mother.
Although we don’t see the reaction of the mother or stepfather in the video, it is clear that the young woman has a sense of humor. She even jokes about how her stepfather spoils her mother and supports her, and she thanks him for his guidance and discipline.
The video of the quinceañera’s speech went viral, reaching over a million views and generating thousands of comments. People praised the young woman for her honesty and maturity in talking about her family, and many commented on how happy she looked when mentioning her loved ones.
Some of the comments included, “Stepfathers are sometimes better than fathers”, “Someone send it to the father”, and “Applause for the groom from his mother”. People also noted the young woman’s nervousness but appreciated her sincere and heartfelt words.
