Celebrity couple Elisse Joson and McCoy de Leon celebrated a new family milestone as their daughter, Felize McKenzie, turned seven months-old on Monday, November 15.
In an Instagram post, Elisse promised to treasure every moment with her daughter as she posted photos from their simple celebration at home.
"Happy 7 months, Felize," she wrote. "It's true what they say, time goes by so fast when you have a little one. So we'll treasure each moment with you 'cause next thing we know, you'll be wanting to gimik na without mommy and daddy. Haha."
Elisse, 25, and McCoy, 26, revealed becoming first-time parents to Felize in late October, through an episode of the reality show Pinoy Big Brother Kumunity Season 10, which saw them returning to the iconic yellow house to ask Big Brother to be the godfather of their baby girl.
The two met during their stint as housemates in the reality show Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky Season 7 in 2016. Their pairing, dubbed "McLisse," spawned a following for their sweet on-cam moments.
They eventually became an official couple, but broke hearts in 2018 when they confirmed that they had broken up. However, after a year apart, McCoy confirmed that he and Elisse had gotten back together in an interview last June.
Shortly after their big revelation, Elisse took to social media to pen a touching letter for their baby girl.
"Dearest Felize, Life was uncertain before you came. I didn't know which path to take, the choices to make. I didn't know what to be, what I want to be. Now, nothing is clearer to me than to be the best me, to be the best mommy, for you," she wrote.
"I am lucky to have your daddy in my life and we are very lucky to have you. Our greatest blessing, in our lives."
McCoy also shared his heartwarming message for Felize on his Instagram page.
"Binigay ka ng Diyos hindi lang isang regalo, binigay ka rin niya dahil binigyan mo kami ng pag-asa ng nanay mo. Nagtuloy tuloy ang pagsasamahan namin dahil sayo, kasi alam naming ikaw ang magiging dahilan kaya kami nabubuhay sa mundong ito. Walang hanggang kasiyahan ang binibigay mo sa amin. Simula nung nakita namin hanggang ngayon," he said.
"Bawat ngiti mo nawawala lahat ng pangangamba namin. Aamin ko natatakot ako sa minsang magulong mundong ito, pero kahit anong mangyari poprotektahan kita hangga't buhay ako. Mamahalin kita nang higit pa sa sarili ko. At ngayon masayang masaya kami ng nanay mo na ipagmalaki ka sa buong mundo," he added.
