Viewers of FPJ’s Batang Quiapo may abhor his character David for being rude and treacherous towards our mighty hero Tanggol (Coco Martin). But in real life, McCoy de Leon is indeed a doting and awesome dad to his daughter Baby Felize.
It was in October 2021 when he and reel-and-real life sweetheart Elisse Joson enthusiastically announced during their guesting in Pinoy Big Brother – where it all started for them – that they already have a baby. They also took that as an opportunity to ask Kuya to be one of the ninongs of their firstborn Felize McKenzie, whose date of birth they didn’t reveal then.
Since then, the happy and proud parents have been sharing some of their fond moments with her through Instagram and the vlogs they upload on YouTube. Just like other families, they love to spend time with her during their days off from work. They personally feed, bath, and play with her every time they’re at home, and would sometimes take her to their getaways in and out of the country.
While not all dads have the opportunity to be at their children’s side to watch and guide them as they grow up, McCoy tries his best to be ever-present in Baby Felize’s life, especially now that she is in her formative years.
Check out the snaps in this gallery that capture their beautiful father-daughter bonding moments!
