Mariel Rodriguez and Robin Padilla's daughter Maria Isabella Padilla was baptized at the National Shrine of St. Michael and the Archangels on the 23rd of November.
According to a report by PEP, among the baby's godparents were President Rodrigo Duterte, Department of Foreign Affairs Secretary ABS-CBN executive Cory Vidanes, director Joyce Bernal, Piolo Pascual, Nadia Montenegro, among others.
The event sparked many questions considering Mariel and Robin have different religions.
In Islam, children are free to choose their religion when they grow up.
Mariel posted a picture and the caption reads,
"Because mommy is a catholic. Dad respects that.
"Welcome to the Christian world my angel.
"In Islam there is no compulsion. Isabella also had her Aqiqah today."
"When she grows up, she will be the one to decide what her religion is. That is her right.
"As parents, it is our duty to teach our children to respect all religions. It is our duty to guide them but we can not dictate to them.
"One thing is for sure... I will make sure Isabella knows that there is only one GOD."
Welcome to the Christian World Isabella!
