Their eldest child, Maria Daniella, one year and six months old, happily welcomes the little angel into their family.

Baby Dan's baptism was very memorable to his parents, friends and godparents as it was a very solemn ceremony, away from the limelight.

After the ceremony at the church, Baby Dan and his guests were treated to a sumptuous Western lunch at Macumba Bar in Limketkeai Center.

Mommy Cherry did the hands-on preparation for the reception and came up with a heavenly theme, referring to her and Councilor Dante's little angels as "blessings from above."

At the reception, the guests, especially the godparents, wished Baby Dan a good future ahead.

"I chose only a few godparents to Baby Dan for them to give guidance and importance as we want him to grow up to be a good child," the proud father said.

Among Baby Dan's godparents are Rep. Benjo Benaldo and Councilor Nadya
