KSnaps Celebrity Ninongs & Ninangs

Having genuine friendships in show business may be deemed quite difficult, but there are celebrities who are still able to find ones they could share their lives with on-and-off-cam. But aside from going on vacations, gimmicks, and adventures together, some of them further strengthened their connections by tapping their famous friends to be the godparents of their beloved kids.

And in this Kapamilya Snaps feature, let’s meet the stars who you may not know took on the role of doting and generous ninongs and ninangs to the lucky kids of their celebrity friends!


Kathryn Bernardo

Playing sisters in the 2012 primetime series Princess and I, Kathryn’s friendship with Sofia Andres transcended in real life. In fact, it was the former who was among the people who were first to know about the latter’s pregnancy. Thus, Sofia chose the Asia’s Superstar as one of the godmothers of her daughter Zoe. Kathryn was present at the little girl’s baptism in June 2020 and recent birthdays.

Apart from Zoe, it was also revealed in an Instagram post of Magandang Buhay host Melai Cantiveros that Kath is also the ninang of her firstborn Mela.


Angelica Panganiban

Having worked together on a few projects, a beautiful friendship bloomed between Angelica and Melai. Thus, she was also one of her famous godparents of Mela and was present during the Christening back in 2014.

The seasoned actress was an obvious choice as well to be the ninang of Feather Prats, the eldest child of her best friend John Prats.


Sam Milby

Like Angelica, Sam also took on the role of being a godparent to Feather and made sure that he was present at her Christening in 2016.


Kyle Echarri

Markus Paterson is indeed blessed to have found not just a trustworthy friend, but also a ninong to his son Jude in Kyle. In a previous post, Kyle imparted that talking to Kyle helped his mental health when he was struggling with the emotional toll of being a first-time dad.


Erich Gonzales

Just in case you don’t know yet, Erich is actually one of Janella Salvador’s good friends. Thus, she was tapped to be one of the godmothers of Jude. In a video message, Erich fondly told her adorable inaanak, “Your ninang Erich will always be here for you, praying for you.”


Coco Martin

Their characters in FPJ’s Batang Quiapo may not be on good terms with each other, but Coco and McCoy de Leon’s brotherhood in real life is seemingly deep. In fact, the former is one of the godparents of the latter’s daughter Felize.

Coco might not be able to attend the little girl’s Christening back in February 2022, yet he made sure that his presence would still be felt by sending a gift and a simple letter to her, in which he wrote, “ngayon palang marami na nag mamahal sayo.”


Julia Montes

Being the real-life partner of Coco, it wasn’t surprising that Julia is also a godparent to Felize. She might not be able to come to the celebration of her baptism as well, but she offered a sweet gift.

The seasoned actress is a ninang, too, to the cute and energetic Alonzo, the second child of her bestie Dimples Romana.


Belle Mariano

Meanwhile, Belle is a ninang to Dimples’ youngest kid Elio. Despite her busy schedule, the Can’t Buy Me Love star made sure to show up at the little boy’s star-studded baptism and first birthday celebration in July 2023.


Andrea Brillantes

Another famous celebrity present on Baby Elio’s Filipiniana-themed baptism and first birthday fete was Andrea, who from being Dimples’ “baby dragon” in Kadenang Ginto went on to become the ninang of her beloved bunso. The Senior High headliner was seen giddily carrying her handsome inaanak while dressed in a terno.


Anne Curtis

Since they’ve been working together for more than a decade already, it didn’t come as a surprise when Anne was picked by Jhong Hilario and his partner Maia Azores to be one of the godparents of their daughter Sarina – along with the other members of the It’s Showtime fam.

In one of his YouTube vlogs, Ninang Anne was seen happily bonding with Sarina as they sang a couple of Disney songs together while inside the hosts’ huddle room.


Vice Ganda

We may not have seen a picture of them together yet, but Vice is also part of Sarina’s list of famous godparents.

Besides, the Unkabogable Star is also one of the godparents of Sylvio, the beloved son of her longtime friend Angeline Quinto. She already showed how a doting ninang she was even before the little boy was born as she organized a gender reveal party for the “Queen of Teleserye Theme Songs.” The It’s Showtime host was present as well during the christening of Baby Sylvio in June 2022.


Kim Chiu

We might not have seen her in any of the snaps during the christening of Baby Sylvio, but Angeline confirmed in a previous interview that Kim was also included in the list of her son’s godparents.

Being besties with Angelica Panganiban has also turned the Linlang actress into one of the godparents of her daughter Amila Sabine. And the little girl’s baptism in February 2023 became an “AngBeKi” reunion since Bela Padilla was present then as well.


Bela Padilla

As mentioned, Bela is one of the celebrity friends of Angelica Panganiban who attended the “BEANyag” of Angelica’s beloved Baby Bean since she’s among her godparents.


John Prats

Being best friends for a long time now, John is definitely more than willing to be a ninong to Angelica Panganiban’s daughter Bean.

The actor-director posted on Instagram a carousel of snaps taken during his and his wife’s visit to the Homans in Subic, Zambales in April 2023. He captioned it, “May inaanak na ako sayo Pets [Angelica] Pasensya na at hindi ka muna importante ngayon. Si bean talaga ang nag pa excite sakin. [sic]”

Aren’t these children too blessed to have these celebrities as their ninangs and ninongs?
