“Dearest Felize, life was uncertain before you came. I didn’t know which path to take, the choices to make,” she addressed her child. “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,” she added.
The couple was congratulated by celebrities including Janella Salvador, Maymay Entrata and Ruffa Gutierrez.

Joson and de Leon first met back in 2016 when they both joined “Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky Season 7.” They announced their split in 2018.
The two sparked reconciliation rumors in August 2020, when they went on what appears to be a yacht date. As per reports, they confirmed in June this year that they indeed got back together, even before the pandemic started. JB
