They say children are God’s gift and many of our favorite celebrities are thankful for their newborn blessings. In 2014, some of your favorite celebrities opened to the public the other side of their lives as parents.
THE ROYAL PARTY. This year the Gutierrez clan welcomed the newest additions to their family—Zion, son of Richard and Sarah Lahbati, and Aria, daughter of Elvis and Alexa Uichico. Zion was introduced to the public through the reality show It Takes Gutz to be a Gutierrez and was formally welcomed to the Christian world in a star-studded baptismal ceremony last June 15. Zion was also awarded as the youngest trendsetter of the year because of his popularity in the photo sharing application Instagram. On the other hand, Elvis welcomed his first born, Aria, last September. The newest addition to the showbiz clan was formally introduced at a glittery dedication party last November 16. Elvis and Alexa admitted that Zion was their practice baby when they were in the States. They said that taking care of Zion and the other Gutierrez kids Laureen and Venice, the daughters of Ruffa, inspired them to start their own family.
