Celebrity couple McCoy de Leon and Elisse Joson announced on Sunday, October 31, that they are now parents to a baby girl. 

The two made the revelation during their guesting on Pinoy Big Brother: Kumunity Season 10, wherein they asked “Kuya” to be the godfather of their daughter Felisse McKenzie. 

Kuya, kami po ni McCoy, meron po kaming isang napakaganda at napakabait na baby girl, (Big brother, McCoy and I have a beautiful and nice daughter),” said the actress. Joson added that they decided to share the news via the show because it’s where their love story started. 

She continued, “Nagpapasalamat kami na makabalik ulit dito and i-share po sainyo ang magandang balita po namin. Naisip po namin na dito po kami nagsimula sa bahay po ninyo at malaki po ‘yung utang na loob po namin.” (We’re thankful to be given the chance to come back here and tell you the good news. We thought that it’s just right to share it with you since this is where we started.” 

The couple, however, did not disclose when Joson gave birth to their daughter. 

De Leon and Joson met when they became part of Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky 7 back in 2016. After their PBB stint, they were paired as a love team and starred in television series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, The Good Son, and film Sakaling Maging Tayo. 

In 2018, they announced their breakup. The two sparked reconciliation rumors in September 2020 after the actor posted a sweet photo of him and Joson. On June 2021, both confirmed they were back together. 

On Instagram, Joson also shared more photos of their daughter. “Our little angel, ready to say hello to the world,” she wrote. 

Addressing Felize, the actress continued, “Now, nothing is clearer to me than to be the best me, to be the best mommy, for you. I am lucky to have your daddy in my life and we are very lucky to have you, our greatest blessing, in our lives.” 

Fellow celebrities such as Janella Salvador, Karla Estrada, Mariel Padilla, Maymay Entrata, Ruffa Gutierrez, and Jane de Leon have congratulated the couple. – Rappler.com
