Ivana took to her Instagram to dedicate a special message to her “chickens," writing: "Happy birthday to our beloved Eva and Mateo !!! Today you are 1 year old. Time has flown by and you have grown a lot. I remember how little you were the first time I held you in my arms a year ago. Now you are beautiful, every day more funny and naughty, as well as very affectionate ... What you like a mime, a little kiss and a cuddle! Aunt Ivi loves you very much even when you pull my hair, chew with those 3 teeth that you have, and even more so when you want to give me and receive all the love of the world.”
