The hot young showbiz couple Alwyn Uytingco and Jennica Garcia is certainly full of surprises - after secretly getting married two years ago, February 2014, they soon followed up with the announcement that they were expecting a child!
Their lovely daughter Athena Mori was born last July 17, 2015. A few days ago she marked her first year of life with a little celebration, surrounded by close friends, family, and godparents.
Her party was held at Jean's Manila, her grandmother's restaurant. It is located at Roces Avenue, Quezon City.

Early last year, Alwyn admitted that Jennica's pregnancy was unplanned, but that "if it is God's will", they are both willing to embrace it. Their original plan was to start a family much later - around the year 2018 or 2019.
Alwyn and Jennica became husband and wife after the Christian rites at the Victory Christian Fellowship on February 12, 2014. Two days later, they celebrated their first Valentine's day as husband and wife.
Athena Mori celebrated her first birthday and was also welcomed into the Christian world at the same time. A video was posted on Jennica Garcia's Facebook account.
Soon after, the couple, as well as their love story, was featured in an episode of Wattpad Presents, a romance series where stories from the popular writing website Wattpad are reinterpreted into mini-series for TV.
Jennica is the daughter of former actor Jigo Garcia and actress Jean Garcia. She first got into showbiz when she was given the role of Karen Manansala in Impostora. This was her first GMA show. Alwyn, on the other hand, is a member of ABS-CBN's circle of homegrown talents called Star Magic. He is an alumni of Star Magic batch 9.
Despite their focus on family life, both still make it a point to dabble in showbiz. Alwyn stars as the host - as well as various other roles - in TV5's HAPPinas Happy Hour, and Jennica was featured this year at Marian Rivera's Yan ang Morning! show. - Kami Media
