We may still be in the midst of a pandemic, yet we’re still able to find reasons to celebrate and be happy – may it be new opportunities, new relationships, new discoveries, and the list goes on.
And for the celebrities featured in this episode of Kapamilya Snaps, their source of joy is the newest cuddly addition to their growing families. Meet the celebrity babies that we welcomed this 2021!
From simply making us kilig as a reel-to-real tandem, Elisse Joson and McCoy de Leon further made the hearts of their avid shippers flutter when they finally announced that they’re already proud and happy parents to their firstborn Baby Felize McKenzie. They made the surprising revelation during their appearance in Pinoy Big Brother Kumunity Season 10 and even asked Kuya to be the godfather of their daughter, who just celebrated her seventh month last November.
Star Magic artist Riva Quenery is now also a blooming mom to her and boyfriend Vern Ong’s baby girl they named Athena, who was born last October. She revealed her pregnancy last May and had a stunning goddess-themed maternity shoot.
The same goes for actress-singer Roxanne Barcelo who welcomed her Baby Cinco with her non-showbiz partner, whose identity she hasn’t revealed yet, last June – six months after their wedding in December 2020.
Actress Desiree del Valle is also a first-time mom at 39 as she and husband Boom Labrusca welcomed their first child together, Baby Alexander Sebastian, last October 4. They’ve been married since January 2018 and announced in May 2021 that they were already 17 weeks pregnant.
Vin Abrenica and his actress-wife Sophie Albert shared the birth story for their firstborn Avianna Celeste through a vlog uploaded in their YouTube channel last March. Aside from this life-changing milestone in their life, they also got engaged in February.
While the aforementioned celebrities are just at the onset of their parenting journey, the following have already aced it since they’re on the second, third, and fifth child.
Four years after giving birth to their panganay Pio Joaquin, Kaye Abad and husband Paul Jake Castillo welcomed their second son Iñigo Leon last September 2.
With their glowing splendor and fit physiques, it’s arguably hard to believe that “It Girls” Isabelle Daza and Georgina Wilson are already raising more than one kid. Isabelle and her husband Adrien Semblat gave birth to their second baby Valentin in Hong Kong last April 9, three years after having their firstborn Balthazar in 2018 and five years after tying the knot in 2016. Georgina, on the other hand, has three children already with her husband Arthur Burnand. The first two were boys named Archie and Alfred, while the newest addition to their family is baby girl Charlotte Arabella who was born last April.
Andi Eigenmann and fiance Philmar Alipayo welcomed their second child Koa on January 18, more than a year after having their first child Lilo in July 2019.
Five years after their first son Miguel was born, Parokya Ni Edgar frontman Chito Miranda and wife Neri Naig also gave birth to their second child together last October 8, who they named Manuel Alfonso, a.k.a. Baby Cash. They also recently introduced their adopted child Pia to the public by addressing the comments of netizens who are curious of her identity.
Lastly, Kristine Hermosa and Oyo Boy Sotto have been apparently in love with each other over the years as they welcomed their fifth offspring Vittorio Isaac last August 3. They already have four kids together, namely, Kiel, Ondrea, Kaleb, and Vin.
What about you, Kapamilya? What’s the greatest blessing you’ve received this year?
