Duterte grandkid Stonefish baptized; Erap a ‘ninong’
DAVAO CITY – President Duterte’s youngest grandchild, Marko Digong Duterte Carpio, who was nicknamed Stonefish, was baptized here at 10 a.m. Thursday.
No less than former President Joseph Estrada stood as one of the baby’s godfathers and was there at the baptism rites.
The baptism, officiated by Davao Archbishop Romulo Valles, was held at the St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Barangay Maa. It was attended only by members of the Duterte and Carpio families and the godparents.
But President Duterte was not in attendance.
City Information Officer Jefrey Tupas, who also stood as a godfather, could not say why the President was absent.
The other godfathers included Waldo Carpio, Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte, Sebastian Duterte, Cyril Marasigan, Neil Canedo, Jacob Soriano, Charlie Tan, Elijah Manuel Pepito, Joy Lamanosa, Orlando Basilio Jr., Aaron Velasco and Brian William Uy.
The godmothers were Janette Velasco, Darlyne Rubio, Mayjoy Ramos, Charo Rejuso-Munsayac, and Joyce Domingo-Dapat. SFM/rga
