Almost a year after giving birth, comedienne Ethel Booba and her partner Jessie Salazar had their daughter Michaela baptized.
The Christening was held at Columban Church in Olongapo City, Zambales, and attended by the couple's family and friends.
After the baptismal ceremony, a reception was held at Segara Suites in Subic.
On Instagram, Ethel posted snaps from her daughter's baptism and baptismal reception.
She also shared highlights of the event in her vlog entry uploaded last Friday, February 5.
In the 15-minute video, Ethel recalled how she found out that she was pregnant with Michaela.
"Hindi ko alam na nadi-delay ako. Irregular kasi ako. Pero... kasi pumupunta ako ng Boracay [para bisitahin si Jessie]. 'Pag nagsi-swimsuit ako, 'pag nagsa-side view ako, sabi ko, 'Bakit bloated 'yung tiyan ko?' Tapos kapag naglalakad ako nang mahaba, nahihilo ako. [Nagpa-check up kami sa clinic sa Boracay.] Tapos sabing ganon, pregnancy. So ako, confident, parang, 'Oh sige. Sige nga.' Nag-positive siya," said Ethel.
She also shared her wish for Michaela as she grows older.
"Sana lumaki siyang God-fearing at mabuting tao. Sana hindi maging suwail. Gusto ko lang talagang maging mabuting tao siya."
Ethel, 44, gave birth to baby Michaela via caesarean section on February 14 last year.
She first revealed her pregnancy lin November 2019, a few days after she won the celebrity edition of Tawag ng Tanghalan on It’s Showtime.
