This year, we’ve seen an enormous rise in first-time celebrity parents and they have been the source of much joy and a whole lot of cute celebrity baby photos. Today, as an early celebration for Father’s Day this Sunday, June 17, we put the spotlight on 5 of Philippine showbiz’s newest celebrity dads: Jim Bacarro, Adrien Semblat, John Lloyd Cruz, Justin Pitt, and Paul Jake Castillo.
1. John Lloyd Cruz
First on this list is John Lloyd, who, to the best of our knowledge isn’t an actual Dad yet. Lloydie has never confirmed his girlfriend/rumored fiance’ Ellen Adarna’s pregnancy, but we’ve got a plethora of evidence that basically proves that she is. Perhaps the biggest of them all is a report that the couple requested to reschedule Ellen’s on-going cyberbullying suit citing that the actress is about to deliver her first child any minute now.

So yes, welcome to fatherhood, JLC! <3
2. Jim Bacarro
Early fatherhood was tough on Jim, but in spite the tragic loss of his twin daughter with wife Saab Magalona, they were blessed with a beautiful and chubby-cheeked baby boy Pancho.

So, here’s to you Jim! Stay cool this Father’s Day! <3
3. Adrien Semblat
Adrien officially became our favorite French Daddy when his wife Isabelle Daza gave birth to their first kid last April. Just look at him being a dreamboat and also being a hands-on dad:
Baby Boy Semblat has since enjoyed his father’s warm embrace on treadmills and most recently, during a trip to Australia.
Adopt us, Adrien and Belle. Please!
4. Justin Pitt
The newest daddy on this list is heiress Cristalle Belo’s hubby, Australian hotelier Justin Pitt. They welcomed a bouncing baby boy, Hunter Pitt, just last May 28.

Justin will most likely celebrate his first Father’s Day in the hospital, though, as Hunter, who was born prematurely at 33 weeks, is still being monitored by doctors. Best of luck, Daddy Justin! <3
5. Paul Jake Castillo
Our favorite BFFs-turned-lovers-turned-spouses Paul Jake and his wife Kaye Abad were blessed with their first baby boy, Pio Joaquin, December last year.

And it seems like Paul Jake and Kaye will soon be ready for Baby Number 2. In an Instagram post for last month, Kaye revealed that they are planning on trying for a “baby girl” next year!
Have a happy Father’s Day, Paul Jake! <3
