J Balvin Wishes Ex-Girlfriend A Happy Birthday In An Emotional Message And Some People Are Feeling The Love

J Balvin is one of the world’s biggest music stars right now. He’s a huge Latino icon who is out there on the global stage representing reggaetón and Colombia 100%! 

Though he’s now an international music sensation, he’s never lost touch with his roots and he’s sure to stay in touch with those who have helped him throughout the years. 

Case in point: the reggaeton star shared a beautiful message dedicated to his former girlfriend of a decade.

The “Mi Gente” singer shared with the world how much his former girlfriend, Maria Osorio, still means to him in a post on Instagram. 

Together with a serious #tbt foto, he wrote, “Happy birthday! To the one who was my girlfriend for ten years, you saw in me what very few people could see, you put up with things that very few could put up with, and today I can now call you my best friend.”

In the pic, J Balvin has his arm around Maria Osorio ( ex j balvin girlfriend), who is cuddled up to the future star.

Obviously, the love is mutual because Maria’s response is everything.

In a response to his post, she wrote: “You are my soulmate, and this term does not always refer to romantic love. Soulmates need each other, enjoy together, they feel alive when the other is around, and that´s what you mean to me,” María Osorio wrote to her BFF.

“Thank you so much for your true love since the first moment you met me, thank you for inspiring me, supporting me, for going through good and bad times with me. I will never be able to pay you back for your company because it is UNIQUE, my rainbow kitten, I hope we never get off it. I love you too much.”

It’s true, they were together for 10 years!

María (ex j balvin girlfriend) and José (J Balvin´s real name) were very close to getting married, but as she explained during an interview for TvyNovelas Colombia, things changed and they decided to end the relationship: “There was a ring, yes, and we were planning our life together, however, I reached a point when I could not see myself under those circumstances anymore.”

Fans are obviously stanning for the heartfelt message.

Translation: “So beautiful! Such great people the two of you are. God bless you and give you many years of life. Thank you for always sharing your good vibes with us!”

The Instagram post hadn’t even been up for two hours before it hit 500,000 likes and now, after two days, it’s almost at 1.6 million plus more than 10,000 comments. 

Even the group Cypress Hill dropped a comment in there to share in the love.

And like how could they not?! It’s so sweet to see someone express love for someone from their past and it’s refreshing to see a huge superstar still embracing their roots and their past. 

And let’s not forget J Balvin’s other very important relationship – the one he has with fellow Colombian superstar, Maluma.

The two share the bromance of the century and we are here for it.

J Balvin and Maluma are the faces of contemporary Colombia, and, just like Shakira a few years ago, they have helped wash away the harmful stereotypes that still subsist in popular culture. 

More so, they were both born and raised in the city of Medellín, which in the 1980s and 1990s became the infamous epicenter of the drug trade. J Balvin and Maluma are the perfect poster boys for the post-Escobar Medellín: creative, energetic and stepping firmly into the future. 

In one of the many of photos together they have posted on social media, Maluma wrote: “Medellin pal mundo cucho!! Medellin tiene mucha luz para dar!!” (From Medellin to the world!! Medellin has a lot of light to give!!).

Great artists go back to their roots. Just as J Balvin did in his post to Maria.

The photos don’t just end with the cover. There are more stunning photos of Ferrer striking a pose and smiling in her pregnancy glory.

Ferrer revealed that the pregnancy was a shock to her at first. “I took the pregnancy test in the bathroom and I repeated it three more times because I couldn’t believe it,” Ferrer told Vogue México. “But what surprised me the most was when I felt the baby kick for the first time.”

Valentina and J Balvin first met in one of his music videos.

This will be J Balvin’s first child with Ferrer. The two first met on the set of his “Sigo Extrañándote” music video in 2017. The emotional visual was for Balvin’s hit single from his 2016 album Energía. In 2018, they debuted as a couple at New York Fashion Week.
