In one episode of the live streaming project One Voice Pilipinas, Kean Cipriano and Chynna Ortaleza revealed how their family of four has been spending the enhanced community quarantine.

As much as they fear, like everyone else, the threat of the virulent COVID-19 disease, they've been vigilant about staying positive to keep the family spirit up.

Kean said, "Feeling ko, dahil sa nangyayari ngayon na lahat tayo nasa bahay lang natin and, siyempre, mahirao naman talaga yung sitwasyon kasi may virus nga sa labas.

"I think kailangan na lang natin hanapin yung mga magagandang bagay sa nangyayari sa atin ngayon, di ba?"

One Voice Pilipinas is a fundraising project organized by Matteo Guidicelli with the Philippine Army to provide food packs for the indigents during the enhanced community quarantine. This episode with Kean and Chynna as guest stars, together with John Prats and Isabel Oli, aired last Saturday, April 5.


In the show, Kean recalled how he got emotional seeing his four-year-old daughter Stellar, nicknamed Peanut, lead a prayer for the family before having a meal.

He said, "Si Peanut ano e, nagulat kami, same din kina John na nagdadasal bago kumain, bago matulog, ganyan.

"Natutuwa ako kasi first time ko siya [nakita]. Actually, naiyak nga ako nung isang araw e. Kasi sabi ko kay Peanut, 'Peanut, can you lead the prayer?'"


Chynna added, "Oo, umiyak si Kean. Usually, nahihiya kasi siya, e, ayaw niya."

Kean continued, "'Tapos ni-lead niya yung prayer, 'tapos ang galing niya. 'Tapos naiyak na ako, ang galing naman, nakakatuwa."


It hasn't been long since Kean and Chynna welcomed Baby Salem, their second child.


Baby Salem is only seven months old, but Kean and Chynna were teased by their close friends, John Prats and wife Isabel Oli, about having another baby soon.

Apparently, there was a story to it.

In the conversation in One Voice Pilipinas, it became clear why Isabel and Chynna see themselves as twins.

It all started at the time they were both pregnant, then they found out they were both having a baby girl.

Kean recalled, "Si Chynna and si Liv [Isabel's nickname], tawagan nila 'twiny.' Parang twins daw sila.

"Ang nakakatawa kasi, yung birthday ng mga first baby namin, April 18 si Feather, 'tapos April 20 naman si Stellar."

John added, "Few days apart lang."

In November 2018, Isabel gave birth to Baby Freedom.

In September 2019, less than a year later, Chynna gave birth Baby Salem.

Kean went on, "Hindi naman super dikit pero tinawagan ko si Liv [Isabel].


"'Tapos sabi niya, 'Pag iyan boy, ewan ko na lang, ah?' Sabi ko, 'Oo nga, e!' E, boy din."

John and Isabel are expecting their third child in July.

Given that Chynna and Isabel trailed each other's first and second pregnancies, will it happen again for the third time?

Nope, Kean assured, "... okay na kami, ah!"

John egged him on, "Baka hahabol kayo, ah!"

Isabel teased further, "Hindi tayo sure! Quarantine!"
