Being the “haligi ng tahanan,” fathers are expected to provide the needs of the family. Thus, they are arguably not expected to do much in the house, particularly in taking good care of the kids round-the-clock. But the celebrity dads in this Kapamilya Snaps feature will surely amaze us with how they’re able to still become hands-on despite their hectic schedules.
Showbiz onlookers and fans of celebrity couple McCoy de Leon and Elisse Joson were surely astounded when they announced during their recent guesting in Pinoy Big Brother, where they love story began five years as part of the Lucky Season 7, that they’re already happy and proud parents to a baby girl named Felize McKenzie. They may have only divulged a little bit about their journey as parents, their social media posts and one of their vlogs reveal how hands-on parents they both are, especially McCoy, to their bundle of joy.
The same goes for Viral Scandal actor Markus Paterson who, despite his busy schedule, is still able to make time for his and girlfriend Janella Salvador’s adorable firstborn Baby Jude Trevor. In fact, he personally gives him baths and even plays and takes naps with him, as shown in the series of vlogs they launched on their YouTube channel that narrated his day-to-day life with him.
Carlo Aquino, JC de Vera, JC Santos, and Baron Geisler all couldn’t help but share to the world how delighted they are to be fathers as they upload some photos of their sweet moments with their little families.
He may be busy with his showbiz commitments, but Carlo made sure to be present in the milestones of his daughter Enola Mithi with partner Trina Candaza, such as when she was learning how to walk and when she hit the beach for the first time.
His La Vida Lena co-star JC (de Vera) also loves spending time with his kid Lana Athena, to the point that they became inseparable and brought her to work sometimes.
Going through their photos on IG, we couldn’t help but notice how JC (Santos) has the sweet look on his eyes every time he is with Baby River Aletheia, his daughter with partner Shyleena Herrera. Similar with Baron, who, from being a notorious bad boy, has gone to become a doting dad to his daughter Talitha Cumi with his beloved non-showbiz wife Jamie Evangelista.
These first-time dads may have busy schedules, but just like other fathers out there, family is still their top priority!
