Callalily lead singer, OPM rock icon and actor Kean Cipriano visited Tonight With Boy Abunda on Monday, July 29 to talk about his wife Chynna Ortaleza, his experiences while shooting FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano and his thoughts on possible names for his baby.
Kean currently plays the role of Migs in the top-rating primetime action drama. He shared his experience on his first day on the set, wherein he got injured while filming a sequence. He said that it was intimidating at first to guest star in the hit teleserye since it’s the longest running show on Primetime and it’s also the number one show in the country but he eventually warmed up to it and just enjoyed the experience.
Boy Abunda congratulated Kean for not just being brave on the set but for also being bold enough not to hire a nanny for their kids for a whole year. He was the one in charge of preparing his daughter Stellar’s milk formula when they had no helpers. He shared that the routine is hardest at night when he would wake up to a crying Stellar wanting her milk. Kean taught Tito Boy how to prepare the milk and approximate the scoops of milk powder that should be mixed in the feeding bottle.
When they had no helpers, Kean revealed that he and Chynna learned the dynamics of having a family and work out their differences. “Natutunan namin lalo na maging totoo sa isa’t isa,” he said.
Kean added that he learned that they could run a household without helpers although there were days that it was hard to manage both their careers and their domestic life at the same time.
Of course, TWBA wouldn’t complete without the King Of Talk learning a new skill. Kean taught him how to play the guitar and how to compose songs using only the basic chords.
After the guitar lesson, Kean shared that they are expecting a baby boy soon.
Tito Boy ran a survey online to suggest a name for Kean and Chynna’s baby boy. “Solar” was Chynna’s first choice for the name since their daughter’s name is “Stellar.” Kean revealed that their baby boy will be named “Salem” meaning peace while his second name was named after Chynna’s late father and so, the baby’s full name will be Salem Gryk Cipriano.
Kean’s new single, “Eye Contact,” is now available in all music stores and streaming services nationwide. Catch Kean weeknights on FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano after TV Patrol and on weekends starting August 5 on I Can See Your Voice Season 2.
