TWINS DANIEL & MICHAEL
BIRTHDAY: January 18, 2018 PARENTS: Jerika Ejercito & Miquel Aguilar Garcia The twins’ elder half-brother Isaiah—here grinning from ear to ear—is fully ready to take on his kuya duties. Jerika Ejercito—the eldest child of former Philippine President and now Manila City Mayor Joseph Estrada and former actress Laarni Enriquez—gave birth to identical twins (two boys) courtesy of her Spanish husband, triathlete Miquel Aguilar Garcia.
On Instagram, Jerika happily posted a photo of her twins and wrote: “God’s double portion. DANIEL and MICHAEL AGUILAR. “And I remain the reigning Queen.” (Incidentally, following a traditional Spanish naming custom, Miquel Aguilar Garcia’s paternal family name or surname, Aguilar, comes before the maternal family name, Garcia. That explains why the twins are legally surnamed Aguilar, but are addressed by Miquel in an IG post as “Daniel and Michael Aguilar Ejercito.”)
Before Jerika gave birth, she also took to Instagram to write a note for her twins:
“To our Dos Niño… It’s only a matter of time until we finally gaze into both your eyes, touch and kiss you both…
“Your father and I along with your kuya Isaiah have been dreaming of the day that we take both of you home.”
Kuya Isaiah is Jerika’s five-year-old son with her former boyfriend, actor Bernard Palanca. With Jerika (second from left) in this souvenir photo are her brothers Jake (leftmost) and Jacob (rightmost). This shot was taken during her wedding to Miquel Aguilar (third from left), held on August 12, 2017, at the Manila Hotel.
