Rodrigo Santino Santiago, son of Claudine Barretto and Raymart Santiago, celebrated his first birthday and his dedication to the Christian world last Sunday at the Blue Leaf Events Pavillion in Taguig City.
The Barney-themed party was well attended by family and friends, including Santino’s set of celebrity godparents—Edu Manzano, Robin Padilla, Manny Pacquiao, Liz Almoro, Andeng Bautista, Atty. Noni Buencamino, Cristalle Henares, Kate Torralba, Paolo Contis, Isabel Oli, and Meryll Soriano. It was after all unofficially a quintuple celebration.
Aside from Santino’s birthday and dedication, it was also the couple’s natal day—Claudine turned 29 and Raymart turned 35. Yesterday, July 21, the couple’s adopted daughter, Sabina, also marked her fourth birthday.
But Claudine made it clear that the bash was really meant for their little one. “Birthday lang ni Santino itong araw na to… Hinihingi ko nga [kay Raymart] na sana makapag-out of town or out of the country kami kahit na for like three or four days man lang. Pagka-medyo okay na yung schedule.”
She added, “Sa sarili ko, kung sa sarili ko lang talaga, wala na akong i-wi-wish kasi nasa akin na lahat-lahat. Pero pag family, good health, good health.”
