Actress Madison De La Garza has posted a heartwarming Happy Birthday message to her big sister Demi Lovato, thanking all those who have kept Demi alive through her recent overdose, and highlighting the little quirks that make up who her sister really is.
We’ve heard a lot from ‘sources’, various media outlets, and then finally Demi herself after the singer suffered an overdose last month, but now, we’re hearing from those closest to her, like little sister Maddi (who you’ll remember from Desperate Housewives).
“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 on Instagram.
“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 ❤️”

Earlier this month, Demi took to Instagram to thank all those sending their support, stating she needed time to "heal and focus on my sobriety."
