Frankie, Ariana’s older brother, took to Instagram to wish his little sister a very happy birthday. He uploaded a video of him and her dancing on the song La Macarena by Los Del Rio.
He wrote a long and emotional caption for her. It started with how he first heard the news that his sister was going to be born.
He wrote, “25 years ago today i was with my Nonna and Grandpa in their Florida apartment when we got the news that my mother was in labor and that soon she would be giving birth to my little sister.”
Frankie recalled how excited he was when his grandparents were driving him to the hospital to see his baby sister for the first time.
He added, “I remember sitting in the back seat with nonna while grandpa drove us to the hospital…i was filled with excitement and anticipation to welcome our newest addition to the family.”
He further said how he remembered requesting the nurse to take him to Ariana. The 35-year-old said, “We pulled up and i recall jumping out before my grandparents and sprinting into the hospital.
“I ran up to a nurse and said, ‘I would like to see my little sister, her name is Ariana’ and the nurse replied, ‘she just came in’ and there, being rolled past me at that very moment as if by fate, was my beautiful little sister.”
He recollected his feelings when he laid eyes on the beautiful baby for the first time. He expressed, “She was right there. I remember seeing her for the first time and promising that i would love her every day for the rest of my life.”
Then the actor and producer rolled the caption into the present times and reflected into the 25 years that had flown by so fast.
He wrote, “It has been 25 years to the day and that promise has held true. Ariana, you are my best friend, biggest supporter, and greatest little sister a big brother could ever ask for. thank you for being you & happy happy birthday. can’t wait for the next 25 years and many many more…”
