Whatever the size and type of the family—small, just right, blended, extended—nothing beats celebrating Yuletide all together. Just like these celebrities, as they shared their family portraits on Christmas Day.
Year 2022 has been eventful and hectic for Angelica Panganiban's personal life. In March, the actress announced that she and her boyfriend Gregg Homan (read more about him here) are expecting their first child together. Two months later, they launched their YouTube channel, The Homans.
Fast forward to September 20, 2022, Angelica and Gregg welcomed their daughter Amila Sabine, nicknamed Bean. They then announced on their vlog, posted on October 8, that they were already engaged (read here).
For their first Christmas together as a "little family," Angelica shared three snaps: she and Gregg giving their daughter a kiss; Baby Bean in the cutest Santa Claus suit; and the first-time mom sharing a tender moment with her newborn.
Actress and entrepreneur Sam Pinto shared photos of her own "little family"—her pro basketball player-husband Anthony Semerad and their one-year-old daughter Mia Aya—as they celebrated the most wonderful time of the year. They wore sunny yellow outfits that matched their warm smiles.
Nikki Valdez and her 14-year-old daughter Olivia, along with the actress's current husband Luis Garcia, went for the classic white top-and-denim blue combo for their Christmas photos.
(Just last December 2, Nikki and Luis marked their eight years of togetherness with a nuptial blessing, read here.)
The actor/TV host/entrepreneur wore a jacket over a shirt, while the kids both donned shirts and shorts, and they're al shod in sneakers. The actress/TV host/entrepreneur tried to blend in with her long flowy dress (a designer piece, of course).
Jolina Magdangal and Mark Escueta, along with their kids Pele and Vika, went not only casual but homey. They donned trendy pajamas and had their photos taken in a bedroom. Their matching Christmas pjs had more than the usual holiday colors, as expected from the actress/singer/TV host's vibrant fashion sense.
Rica Peralejo, her husband Joseph Bonifacio, and their sons Philip and Manu—a.k.a. The Bonis—stuck to different shades of blue (with a splash of gray) for their outfits.
But they were far from looking neither blue nor gray in their family portraits. Instead, as the actress-turned-content creator and Smart Parenting's editor-at-large puts it in her caption, they're beaming with "love and peace and joy."
Their baby girl, whom they've named Dylan Jayde, is actually the fifth member in their blended family that also includes Dennis's son Calix and Jennylyn's son Jazz.
In their family portrait, Dennis and the teenage boys wore pastel shirts in tandem with khaki pants. Jennylyn and the baby girl went matchy-matchy in paisley.
At that time, they had Primo, Leon, and Alana. This year, they included the latest member of their brood, Astro, who was born on June 4. They all looked cute in matching pajama tops and shorts.
Sharon Cuneta and Kiko Pangilinan joined the bandwagon of donning matching pajamas with Christmas motif. The Megastar and the former senator evidently enjoyed letting their hair down with their kids Frankie, Miel, and Miguel. Their eldest KC Concepcion came in later on.
In KC's own post, she shared photos showing she had gone first to her other relatives, such as her late grandmother Elaine Cuneta's sister Helen Gamboa. Helen's husband is former senator Tito Sotto.
Vic Sotto and Pauleen Luna's unica hija Tali is not really an only child, as Vic has four other children: Danica, Oyo, Vico, and Paulina. All of them except for Pasig City mayor Vico Sotto, have their own families.
Vic and Pauleen celebrated not only with Vic's kids and grandkids, but also some of Vic's brothers and their respective families. It was a big family affair, indeed.
