We know him as an all-out performer who can dance, act, and sing, as well as a promising public servant in Makati City and one of the gregarious hosts of It’s Showtime. And in the recent years, we’ve witnessed how he’s been a cool and hands-on dad to his dear daughter Sarina Oceania.
It was on March 27, 2021 when he and his longtime partner Maia Azores welcomed their firstborn, after around a decade of being together. Since then, he’s been delighting us with photos and videos of their bonding moments together that he shares on social media and on his YouTube channel. Baby Sarina may just be a toddler, but she has already captured our hearts not only by her cuteness, but by her irresistible charm and fascinating talent and cleverness, too!
Since they had her during the pandemic, Jhong had the chance to spend more time with her and perform his daddy duties ever since she was born as he decided to take a hiatus from his showbiz commitments. Among their bonding moments together, it’s their adorable duets that probably our most favorite. We have surely found ourselves smiling from ear-to-ear and so kilig as we watch them sing nursery rhymes and classic old songs together, right?
Aside from developing and exhibiting her talents now that Sarina’s a bit bigger, Jhong and Maia have already taken her to different places here and abroad, which some of their photos we collated in this gallery!
The doting parents were able to make her experience sailing away and swimming at the crystal-clear waters of Coron, Palawan and roamed around the popular tourist spots in Baguio City. And during their trips abroad, they got to bring her to different famous landmarks in the United States of America, France, Spain, and Japan.
With the many places that they’ve already visited, we can say that they are indeed a jetsetter family!
Catch Jhong on It’s Showtime, Mondays to Saturdays at 12 noon on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z.
