TV host and model Phoemela Baranda recently celebrated the first birthday of her youngest daughter Illya.
On Instagram on Wednesday, March 9, Phoemela shared photos from the birthday celebration of Illya, which was held last Saturday, March 5, and attended by their friends and family.
"We celebrated the very first birthday of our precious little daughter last March 5, 2022. The 365 days of immense and boundless love, joy, and smile went by so fast. Happy 1st birthday our little princess!" she said.
Phoemela gave birth to Illya, her second child, at the age of 40.
In a previous interview with fashion magazine Preview, the model revealed that she had planned to have a child with her partner, businessman and professional race car driver Jason Choachuy.
"I've always wanted another child, and my partner [wanted one] as well—it’s his first," she said.
Phoemela is already a mom to Kim Nichole, a teen housemate in Pinoy Big Brother: All In, whom she had when she was just 19.
Last August, the TV host also marked another milestone in her life as a mother when she had her baby girl baptized.
