Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 28) — President Rodrigo Duterte is spending his special day with those closest to his heart.

Photos shared by his son-in-law, Mans Carpio, showed the President relaxing with his grandchildren.

The pictures showed the President's gentler side – having a conversation with one granddaughter, another hugging a grandson.

The President is continuing his tradition of quietly celebrating his birthday in his home in Davao City.

Special Assistant to the President Christopher "Bong" Go said, "He has never been known to throw lavish birthday parties even when he was mayor of Davao City. Prayers from his well-wishers during his birthday would surely make him very happy," Go said.
