Mariel Rodriguez explains why Maria Isabella had two baptisms


 

Mariel Rodriguez and Robin Padilla’s daughter Maria Isabella had a Catholic baptism yesterday, November 23, which sparked questions from netizens since Robin is a Muslim. 

Mariel clarified that their daughter also had her Aqiqah.

“In Islam there is no compulsion. When Isabella is older she can decide what her religion will be. As parents it is our duty to teach our children how to respect ALL religions. It is also our responsibility to guide them but never to dictate to them. I know for sure that I will see to it that Isabella grows up knowing and believing that there is only one GOD!” she wrote.

Among Maria Isabella’s godparents were President Rodrigo Duterte, ABS-CBN executive Cory Vidanes, director Joyce Bernal, Piolo Pascual, and Nadia Montenegro.
