It was a Christmas day surprise for fans of Kean Cipriano and Chynna Ortaleza as the couple showed off their daughter, Stellar, in their holiday family portrait. This was the public’s first glimpse of the baby since her birth in April 2016.
In the holiday family photo posted on both Kean and Chynna’s Instagram accounts, Kean’s mom, Chona, his brothers, Keno and Keano, joined the couple and their daughter. One of Kean’s hashtags was “We Miss You Dad.” His father, Edgie, died from cardiac arrest in March 17, 2016, which Kean referred to as “the saddest day of my life.”
The couple has said they don’t share photos of Stellar on social media because of privacy and protection. "We live in an environment na public. Yung era natin ngayon ng Internet, social media, it's very critical and risky. We're talking about family now. Hindi mo masasabi, hindi mo talaga alam ang mangyayari," Kean told Pep.ph.
Kean and Chynna also pulled a similar surprise last January 1, 2016 when they revealed they already tied the knot. In an exclusive interview with SmartParenting.com.ph, Chynna said they got married in November 2015, and all their family and friends knew. “We were not keeping things private, we were keeping them sacred.”
