Happy Birthday, Lucia! The daughter of Manuela Testolini and husband Eric Benet celebrated her fifth birthday with family and friends on Wednesday.

“To the worlds most amazing 5 year old,” Eric exclaimed on Instagram. “Happy Birthday LUCIA BELLA!!!”


Manuela also took to Instagram to celebrate her daughter’s milestone. The celebrity mom shared the unique and thoughtful way that Lucia chose to commemorate her special day.

“Every kid deserves to feel special on their birthday! That’s why our junior ambassador, Lucia, is donating her 5th birthday to children living in homeless shelters… so they can have a party surrounded by people who care, just like she does ever year. Donate $5 (or more!) to celebrate her 5 years and 100% of all donations will go towards birthday parties for homeless children.” How sweet is that?


Lucia and her parents hosted a charity event for In A Perfect World (IAPW) a few weeks ago. The nonprofit serves to benefit underprivileged children and other organizations that help those in need. SaveHer, The Bridge for Youth, and Capital Partners for Education are three of many charities financially supported by IAPW.

According to Lucia’s profile, fittingly named Lucia’s World, “If we all take care of our little corner of the earth and the people on it, the world will be more perfect!” Learn more about what Lucia is doing at IAPW’s website.

Lucia is Manuela Testolini and Eric Benet’s oldest child. The couple also has a daughter named Amoura who celebrated her second birthday earlier this year. Eric has an adult daughter named India from a previous relationship.
