MANILA – The first child of actress-singer Vina Morales and partner Cedric Lee was baptized on Saturday in Makati City, entertainment show “The Buzz” reported.
The star-studded christening of the almost four-month-old Ceana took place at Santuario de San Antonio in Forbes Park.
“[I’m] very, very happy. Thankful din ako kasi iyong priest na nag-baptize kay Ceana siya iyong naka-discover sa akin… he flew all the way from Cebu,” Morales, a Cebuana, said.
Ceana, a combination of her parents’ name, has 15 godmothers and 17 godfathers. Most of them are Morales’ friends from show business.
Her godparents include Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao, former governor Luis “Chavit” Singson, Megastar Sharon Cuneta, Ruffa Gutierrez, Rufa Mae Quinto, Pops Fernandez, German Moreno, Gary Valenciano, and Morales’ sister, young actress Shaina Magdayao.
“A great future for Ceana. Sana maging mabait siya na daughter,” Fernandez said.
“Sana matupad niya ang dreams niya. Sana malayo sa harm. Iyon na lang pinagpra-pray naming pamilya,” Magdayao said.
Cuneta and Valenciano were not able to attend the occasion. Morales said Cuneta was in Hong Kong while Valenciano was preparing for his concert.
The guests then proceeded to Le Soufflé in Makati City for a thanksgiving dinner, the report said.
The doting mom said she thinks Ceana will grow up to become a singer. She said she observes as early as now that her baby girl loves to hear music.
Meanwhile, the actress-singer is now raring to go back to work.
“Right now, I want go back to work. I miss working… I’m ready to go back to work,” she said.
Morales is reportedly working hard to get her sexy figure back.
