Korina Sanchez gets her twins, Pepe and Pilar, blessed first in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, before their baptism in the Philippines.


Korina Sanchez's twins Pepe and Pilar celebrated two milestones this March.

On March 20 (Manila time), Korina had her children blessed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where they currently reside. 

Here are some photos from the intimate blessing ceremony, which was presided by Father Steve of the Sacred Heart Church.

Korina's relatives, Rosanna Flores and Jose, stood as witnesses.

Pilar wore an all-white ensemble, which, according to her mom, symbolized "Purity. Happiness. Positivty. God's love and Protection."

PEPE AND PILAR'S ONE MONTH 

A few days before the twins' blessing, Korina marked their first month with a party.

She dressed them up in their birthday outfits, adorned their Pittsburgh home with balloons, and served cakes and pizza.

In one of the captions, the Rated K host realized the kind of mother she was becoming.

"I never thought I'd be one of them. You know. Mothers who celebrate everything about their kids.

"Well...hahahahaha! I'd like to greet my two heavenly blessings, my very own personal miracles Pepe and Pilay a happy, happy 1st monthsary!
