Estoy feliz/contenta por ti


New Member

I am writing back and forth with a girl from Cuba, and she wrote two similar sentences that I understand by itself, but in context I don't understand:
- Estoy contenta por ti
- Sabes que estoy feliz por ti

Now I assumed, word by word, that this would usually mean ''I am happy for you'', but here's the thing, I didn't tell her anything beforehand for her to be ''happy for me'' about!
Is there another meaning to this?

Here's part of the second message she sent me so that you can see the context:
''...eres realmente una bella persona, cuidate sabes que estoy feliz por ti.''
And basically, the only thing I had written to her beforehand was something along the lines of ''I hope everything is well for you, have an incredible day'', so I don't get the ''Sabes que estoy feliz por ti'' part...

thank you for your help
