Godparents indeed play an important role in the upbringing of a child as they pledge to help the parents raise them into well-rounded individuals and even serve as guardians if needed. And in spite of their busy schedules, the Kapamilya celebrities in this Kapamilya Snaps feature are enthusiastic in taking on the ninang or ninong duties to the beloved babies of their fellow celebrities!
Being one of the people she trusts the most in life and to know about her pregnancy in 2019, Sofia Andres picked her Princess and I co-star Kathryn Bernardo to be the godmother of her daughter Zoe. The same with La Vida Lena star Erich Gonzales, who was chosen by her The Blood Sisters castmate and good friend Nathalie Hart to be the ninang of her baby girl Penelope.
Before having her own child, It’s Showtime host Anne Curtis used to only be a godmother to the kids of her friends, including fellow “IT Girl” Georgina Wilson’s firstborn Archie. It’s also the case for Ruffa Gutierrez, who is a proud ninang to Daniel Padilla, the son of her long-time best friend Magandang Buhay host Karla Estrada. In a previous interview, she imparted that the reason why she accepted her role in the iWantTFC series “The House Arrest of Us” is because she wanted to work with her inaanak.
Dimples Romana’s son Alonzo is indeed one lucky kid as he has Angel Locsin, Julia Montes, and Sarah Geronimo as godmothers. Dimples and Angel became best friends when they first worked together in the 2008 series Lobo, while her deep bond with Julia started on the set of the Mara Clara remake in 2015. However, not much is known about her friendship with Sarah, yet we saw how they support each other through the years.
FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano actor John Prats tapped his best friends Angelica Panganiban and Sam Milby to be the godparents of his firstborn Lily Feather with wife Isabel Oli. As we all know, he and Angelica have known each other ever since they were child stars, while he and Sam have been great friends and business partners for a longtime now.
Baby Jude, the adorable son of Janella Salvador and Markus Paterson, is definitely blessed to have Liza Soberano and Kyle Echarri as his godparents. Janella and Liza have been the best of friends when they began in showbiz and became part of the Star Magic Batch 19, while Kyle is a close friend of Markus.
However, it’s a totally different case for Huwag Kang Mangamba actress Andrea Brillantes, since it’s her who has celebrity godparents. In 2013, she was baptized as Catholic at 10 years old and had her on-screen father in the Annaliza remake, Zanjoe Marudo, as one of her ninongs.
What about you Kapamilya? Have you ever dreamt of having a famous godparent for yourself or your child?
