McCoy de Leon and Elisse Joson are proud to show to the world their daughter

McCoy on Monday, November 1, shared on Instagram his message for his partner and daughter with one of their photos as a family of three.

Binigay ka ng Diyos hindi lang isang regalo, binigay ka rin niya dahil binigyan mo kami ng pag asa ng nanay mo. Nagtuloy tuloy ang pagsasamahan namin dahil sayo, kasi alam naming ikaw ang magiging dahilan kaya kami nabubuhay sa mundong ito,” he wrote.

(God gave you not only as a gift but also as a source of hope for me and your mom. Our relationship became stronger because of you because we know you will be the reason why we are here in this world.)

McCoy added that his daughter’s arrival has given him and Elisse a lot to smile. And although both are worried for their daughter’s future, he will do everything to protect her.

Mamahalin kita nang higit pa sa sarili ko. At ngayon masayang masaya kami ng nanay mo na ipagmalaki ka sa buong mundo.”

(I will love you more than myself. And now, your mom and I are proud to show you to the world.)

He also thanked Elisse for giving him a chance and that he’ll do his best both as a father and partner.
