It was in May 2018 when JC de Vera confirmed he was a father, sending this statement to Pep.ph: "I'm proud to be one." At that time, it was all JC would disclose. However, the Kapamilya actor recently opened up for first time via social media about the new chapter in his life.
On July 1, the photo of his adorable daughter, Lana Athena, made her debut on JC's Instagram feed.
Along with family portraits with his long-time partner Rikkah Alyssa Cruz, JC formally introduced his family, describing them in one photo as "My Strength. My happiness. My Inspiration. My motivation. My Love. My Life."
Last week, the Kapamilya actor's co-stars in shows Banana Sundae and Since I Found You were present at his daughter’s recent baptism. Among the celebrity ninongs and ninangs spotted were Pooh, Nadia Montenegro, and John Prats.
"Sobrang saya ko para sayo pareng @akosijcdeberat. Sarap niyan! Salamat at napili mo ako na maging ninong ni #Lana," John wrote as a caption for a photo of Lana Athena during her baptism.
