Lawmakers such as Senators Christopher "Bong" Go, Ronald "Bato" Dela Rosa, Manny Pacquiao, Sonny Angara, and Sherwin Gatchalian were some of the godparents of Sara.

The President's son, Paolo Duterte, was also listed as a godparent.

Velasco is in a term-sharing agreement with Taguig-Pateros Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano for the House leadership under the 18th Congress.

Cayetano will be the Speaker for a year and 3 months, then Velasco will take over for the rest of the term, which is around 21 months.
