Actor Baron Geisler and his wife Jamie Evangelista celebrated the birthday of their daughter Talitha Cumi on Thursday, January 20.
As seen in Baron's latest Instagram update, the couple opted for a simple and intimate celebration at home to mark Tali's special day.
"After surviving typhoon Odette and Omicron, celebrating life has become simpler yet more meaningful. Thanking God for Tali who gives me joy and keeps me motivated. Thank you Abba, Father!" wrote the actor.
Tali is the only child of Baron and his wife, who is a psychologist. The couple tied the knot in a civil ceremony in September 2019, after dating for one year.
The two met while the actor was inside a rehabilitation center to treat his past drug addiction. In an interview last February, Baron, who is known for his "bad boy" image aside from his stellar acting skills, shared how his life changed since he decided to settle down and start his own family.
"Nag-soften yung character ko. Hindi na ako maangas. Siguro yung angas na ‘yan, ilalabas ko ‘yan kapag kailangan ng pamilya. Ilalabas ko sa pagbanat ng buto at, siyempre, dahil may anak at asawa na ako, ayoko na ng gulo," he said.
"As much as possible, kung may manghahamon sa akin diyan, e, tatakbo na lang ako kasi ayaw natin ng kaaway, lahat kaibigan natin."
He also opened up about his realizations on life after spending more than a year under lockdown with his family in Cebu, his new home.
“Now, family comes first. More than any material things, family is the most important thing in the world," he said.
“I consider 2020 as a blessing in disguise," he continued. "Marami akong natutunan. I got to take care of my daughter. Naging hands-on pa kami ng asawa ko, si Jamie."
“'Magkano na ang gatas ngayon?' I would monitor and say, ‘Dalawang lata na lang ito. Kailangan nating bumili.' I think mas nakilala ko rin ang sarili ko last year. I read a lot of books. Itong nangyari sa atin in this pandemic, dito mo mate-test ang character ng isang tao.”
Last December, Baron and his wife were a picture of a happy family with their daughter Tali in holiday-themed photos the actor shared on Instagram.
Baron, 39, starred in the long-running action series FPJ's Ang Probinsyano, as one of the show's main villains, Bungo.
He was most recently seen in Viva's comedy-action film Barumbadings, which was released last November.
