MANILA – “Two new angels on earth.”

Korina Sanchez made this statement in an Instagram post on Thursday as she shared photos from the baptism of Pepe and Pilar, her twin children with former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas.

The “Rated K” host admitted that the babies’ baptism “took a while, although they were blessed three times prior.”

“It was a quiet and simple event, just immediate families in attendance,” she said. 

“We wanted more ninongs and ninangs then realized we needed to choose guardians from the younger generation of our families.”

Sanchez only got to have children of her own this year with the birth of Pepe and Pilar via gestational surrogacy in the United States. 

She and Roxas “decided to freeze our embryos before my biological clock stopped ticking,” allowing them to embark on their “best live adventures” before building a family.
