Former Home & Away star Pia Loyola is celebrating a major milestone this week, taking to Instagram to share a sweet tribute in honour of her son Isaiah’s 18th birthday, which the family celebrated with a big celebration in Melbourne.
The Chilean-Australian model, who recently became engaged to Hollywood agent Patrick Whitesell, threw her son a lavish birthday bash—even hiring a private jet for him and his friends.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Pia may have spent up to $25,000 for the short luxury fare that carried Izzy and his pals from Sydney to Melbourne. The event was then held at the rooftop bar of Le Ciel, a luxury event space with a break-taking contemporary view of Melbourne’s CBD.
Pia even shared a photo of a neon sign that read: “Izzy 18.”
“Last night celebrating Isaiah’s 18th birthday,” Pia captioned an adorable selfie with her son. “Thank you to everyone who came to join us. It was such an incredible night!”
Just last month, the actress revealed she gifted Isaiah with a luxury SUV, captioning a photo of Izzy smiling from ear-to-ear in front of the extravagant present.
“EIGHTEEN years of loving you,” she wrote. “Happy birthday beautiful. How grateful we all are to have you in our lives. So incredibly proud of everything you are.”
Pia is also the mother of 14-year-old Lennox, who she shares with ex-husband Brad Miller.
In December 2020, Pia opened up to marie claire Australia about her holy grail beauty product, Macabalm—a multi-tasking macadamia-based slave. With brightening Kakadu Plum antioxidants and skin-softening lipids extracted from macadamias, Pia’s newly-released natural balm is for everything from chapped lips to dry patches and cuticle care.
“Macabalm is a nourishing, soothing, healing multi-purpose skin salve,” Pia says. “It’s a remedy for a variety of different everyday skin concerns providing extra hydration on any dry skin spots and lips – it immediately makes a difference.”
