  • Feng shui experts said it would be lucky to have a baby in the Year of the Rooster, and boy, these celebrity parents really took it to heart! We wrote about 26 babies born in 2017 so far here, and now we have 9 more to add to the count! Let’s meet them!

    1. Pauleen Luna and Vic Sotto’s baby girl Tali

    After announcing her pregnancy last May, fans looked forward to seeing the actress-host’s first baby with Vic Sotto. On November 6, Vic announced on noontime show Eat Bulaga that his wife had given birth to a “bouncing baby girl” they named Talitha Maria.

    At one month, their firstborn was baptized and the family celebrated their first Christmas together. Oh, joy!

    2. Kaye Abad and Paul Jake Castillo’s baby boy, Joaquin

    On December 22, just a few days before Christmas, the actress welcomed son Pio Joaquin to this world, which, coincidentally, was also her husband Paul Jake’s birthday (notice that they share initials, too?). No doubt the month of December will become extra special for them as it is also Kaye and Paul’s wedding anniversary month. Congrats to the new family!


    3. Nikki Gil’s firstborn, Finn

    The singer and host finally showed off her growing baby bump on her Instagram account in July to announce that she and husband BJ Albert are expecting their first child. On November 20, Nikki gave birth to a baby boy named Finn, and her Instagram has been filled with his pictures ever since. She even shared their first family photo last Christmas! So cute!

    4.  Patrick and Nikka Garcia’s baby girl, Francisca Pia

    Two days after Christmas, Patrick and Nikka Garcia’s third child was born! They named her Francisca Pia, and the proud dad took to Instagram to thank his wife for her “strength and bravery,” as well as for giving him “the best Christmas gift.” It’s now three girls for the couple, as Francisca Pia follows her two older siblings, Michelle and Patrice. We can’t wait to see more of this angel!

    5. Bangs Garcia’s baby girl, Amelia

    The sexy actress, who announced her pregnancy in June, welcomed her first baby last November 5, making it a family of three with husband Lloydi Birchmore. The couple celebrated their first Christmas with baby Amelia in London. Such a beautiful baby!


    6. LJ Moreno and Jimmy Alapag’s third child, Calen Asher

    The actress first announced that she was expecting her third child last June. “3 is definitely our number!” she said in the Instagram announcement, which featured a meme starring her two children, Ian and Keona. (It probably alluded to her husband Jimmy Alapag’s jersey number "3".) In October, the couple welcomed their son, Calen Asher. LJ would later reveal on her Instagram account that it wasn’t an easy pregnancy, so we’re glad that she’s now healthy and recuperating well.


    7. Michelle Madrigal’s daughter, Anika

    The actress’ first child with fiancé Troy Woolfolk arrived at 33 weeks and was born in October. Michelle posted her baby’s first photo on Instagram, with the caption, “She was too anxious to meet the world.” But good to know that she and her baby are doing okay—Michelle is already out and about getting back in shape while Anika looks happy and healthy based on her mom’s photos of her.
