Demi Lovato's 16-year-old sister Madison De La Garza is wishing her big sis a very happy birthday today. And in the process, she is actually addressing Demi's apparent overdose publicly for the very first time. Maddie is feeling extra thankful that she has her big sister in her life today, and it is seriously pulling on our heart strings.
"today could have been one of the worst days of my life, but instead i get to spend it thanking God, the incredible doctors, demi's team, and everyone across the world who offered their support - without all of these people i wouldn't have my big sister anymore," she wrote.
Maddie continued, "i've been thinking about how i wish that everyone could see the silly little things that she does, like how her nostrils move when she says certain words and when she brushes my hair behind my ear when i'm trying to sleep, because those are the things i'm thankful for today. they seem so small, but those little things make up my sister - not a singer, not a celebrity, and definitely not what she's been described as in the media - she's a daughter, a friend, and my big sister... and i am so, so thankful that i can tell her happy birthday. #happybirthdaydemi."
What an incredible sibling bond these two have. Not only is she following in Demi's footsteps by being an actress, but she even appeared alongside her sister in Disney Channel's Princess Protection Program and Sonny with a Chance. Their relationship runs deep, and you can even tell they're sisters with just one glance. Now if you've seen pictures of the sisters posing together, you know that they could seriously pass as twins.
