Toni Gonzaga and husband Paul Soriano will be celebrating the first birthday of their child, Severiano Elliott, this coming September 30, 2017.
Toni is looking forward in celebrating their child’s first year.
Philippine Entertainment Portal caught up with Toni Gonzaga at the kick-off party of Rustan’s 65th anniversary held in Makati City last September 15, 2017 asked Toni Gonzaga if there’s going to be a party?
She said in reply, "I'm just really planning to celebrate it with family and friends who are able to witness our struggles, in the beginning, when we had Seve.
"It's just something that we want to celebrate as a family, and look back on the year that was and how he's grown.
"We just wanna make him feel how he's so loved by everybody."
She explained further, golf because the child’s name was adapted from the know golfer named Severiano Ballesteros.
But who influenced the name Severiano? Who’s behind it?
When Paul Soriano was still a kid, he heard the name Severiano from his grandfather, Nestor de Villa. Severiano was the favorite golfer of Nestor de Villa. Paul just recalled the name and he likes it, so, we name him Severiano.
The other name of the child, Elliott was taken from the movie “E.T.” That was how the couple got the name of the baby.
Toni shared, we have two theme choices, golf from Severiano and E.T. from Elliott. We chose golf because it might be too scary for the kids. So, the theme will be golf.
Not only the couple, are excited for the birthday party but also the sister of Toni Gonzaga. Alex Gonzaga is also excited.
When asked to sum up her journey as a mother to baby Seve, she said, “It’s life-changing. It's overwhelming. It's the most rewarding feeling in the world for me."
She even considered it her biggest accomplishment in life.
What a feeling of success.
Toni in her own words, said, "I guess, being a mother makes you appreciate yourself more.
"Parang I've learned to embrace my womanhood, parang ganun.
"I was finally able to grasp the essence of being a woman.
"Parang I feel like I've served my purpose.
"And I've learned to appreciate and love myself more because I know what I'm capable of giving and the strength I have in raising Seve and delivering him in this world."
Wow! The essence of being a woman. Just being a woman is God's gift that all of us must appreciate. The origin of a child is a mother, and is a woman. She shows a man, what sharing, caring and loving is all about. That is the essence of a woman.
She continued, “Hearing Baby Seve say "mama" for the first time was like music to her ears. It was his first word.”
Talking about the milestone of her baby, the eyes of Toni lit up.
She can’t help but share more about her baby Seve. He’s starting to walk now. Exciting times are ahead, the baby already started saying “Dada” and “Mama”.
The challenges and struggles have been rewarded as a new mom.
The sleepless nights of breast feeding, its’ just worth it.
Toni even shared how Paul her husband as a Dad. She is full of praise for Paul's dedication as a dad. She has so much respect and love for him more now as a partner after he became a father.
Witnessing how Paul loves and takes good care of Seve, I appreciate more of him as a partner. The director didn't pull back the first time he changed the baby's dirty nappy. He experienced it all. It was like a game for him.
Time flies too fast. It’s almost a year now. The excited aunt, Alex Gonzaga posted on Instagram an update of baby Seve.
Last year as seen on Instagram post the proud aunt of baby Severiano Elliott Gonzaga Soriano, shared with us the photo of the new born baby with a caption, "No bias but baby SEVE is the cutest baby in the world!!!!!!!!!!
