MANILA, Philippines – For the first time, veteran actress Sharon Cuneta and Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan introduced to the public their adopted son Miguel.

Miguel, who turned three years old last Saturday, was also Christened on the same day.

“That’s why we have a big celebration kasi everything is in order. Lumabas na ang ruling ng court, he’s now legally a Cuneta-Pangilinan,” Pangilinan said.

Cuneta, for her part, said she is happy that her daughters accept Miguel as their own brother.

“Sa akin walang kaibihan eh. Even the kids, they don’t distinguish between biological and adopted. Kapatid nila si Miguel,” she said.

Miguel’s party was well attended with the couple’s close friends from the media, show business and politics.

Among their son’s godparents are Cuneta’s cousin Ciara Sotto, celebrity couple Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo, and boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao and his wife Jinkee.
