Kapamilya Snaps celebrity kids baptism

Aside from birthday, another special occasion that parents look forward to is the baptism of their beloved kids. Since it’s an important milestone, many parents make sure to celebrate it either through a simple gathering or a lavish party with godparents and some relatives.

And in the recent months and years, we’ve seen a few celebrity parents welcome their kids to the Christian world. Find out who they are by going through this Kapamilya Snaps feature!

Anne Curtis and husband Erwan Heusaff delighted us with photos of their firstborn Dahlia Amelie when they marked her second birthday last March 2. The It’s Showtime host revealed on her social media post that they also celebrated Baby Dahlia’s baptism on that day.

McCoy de Leon and Elisse Joson also had their 10-month-old daughter Baby Felize baptized recently. The intimate event was attended by a limited number of guests, including Sofia Andres and her daughter Zoe.

Speaking of Sofia, she and partner Daniel Miranda had their baby girl Zoe christened in June 2020. Among the godparents present in the small party that followed was actress Kathryn Bernardo, who she regards as one of her closest friends.

The Broken Marriage Vow actor Joem Bascon was indeed one happy dad after he and partner Meryll Soriano welcomed their son Gido to the Christian world in December 2021. Of course, Meryll’s aunt, veteran actress Maricel Soriano, made sure to witness the milestone of her grandson.

JC de Vera and his non-showbiz wife Rikkah Cruz had their firstborn Lana Athena baptized in June 2018. The private ceremony was attended by some of their family and friends, including John Prats and Nadia Montenegro.

Having three adorable kids with actress-wife Isabel Oli, John Prats experienced the joy of dedicating a child to God thrice. They had their firstborn Feather baptized in June 2016, their second child Freedom in March 2019, while their youngest kid Forest was during the FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano actor-director’s 37th birthday last year in February.

The christening of Viral Scandal star Dimples Romana and non-showbiz husband Boyet Ahmee’s son Alonzo back in March 2015 was indeed star-studded, as they tapped Anne Curtis, Sarah Geronimo, Angel Locsin, and Julia Montes to be among his godmothers.

Pinoy Big Brother host Bianca Gonzalez and basketball player husband JC Intal welcomed their first daughter Lucia to the Christian world at two months old in December 2015. Their second daughter Carmen had her baptism on Bianca’s birthday in March 2019.

Magandang Buhay momshie Jolina Magdangal and musician-husband Mark Escueta celebrated their son Pele’s first birthday and Christian church dedication with a picnic-themed party back in February 2015.

Her Magandang Buhay co-host Melai Cantiveros had her first daughter Mela christened in July 2014, which was attended by Angelica Panganiban as one of the godmothers. Three years after, she and actor-husband Jason Francisco celebrated the baptism of their second child Stela in August 2017.

FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano actor Richard Gutierrez and wife Sarah Lahbati held the baptism of their two sons at the same time as their birthdays. Their firstborn Zion had a safari-themed party in June 2014, while their second child Kai had an ocean-themed celebration in June 2019 – which amazingly both fell on Father’s Day.

Baptism is indeed one of the most important part of our lives, thus it’s just apt to make its celebration truly memorable. But more than the merriments that follow, may we not forget that the true essence of this sacrament is to bring children closer to God.
