The biggest and brightest charity gathering in the country is finally over and some of us arguably aren’t still over yet of what transpired and what we witnessed that majestic evening as our social media platforms are still bombarded with features and other contents pertaining to the ABS-CBN Ball 2019.

While seeing who would go solo and show up with a gorgeous or handsome arm candy is usually what aficionados are looking forward to, we also anticipated the celebrity families who would grace the star-studded shindig, which was for the benefit of Bantay Bata 163’s Bantay Edukasyo project. Well, we’re able to catch their lovely moments together and collated their snaps in this gallery for you to see!

With their super-duper adorable unica hija Scarlet Snow in tow, Dra. Vicki Belo and husband Hayden Kho indeed exuded beauty and charm on the red carpet in their Paul Cabral numbers, not to mention Dra. Vicki and Baby Scarlet wearing identical ternos.

Clad in matching Neric Beltran pearl-encrusted couture gowns, the admirable mother-daughter tandem of Cristine Reyes and Amarah truly melted our hearts.

Another mother-daughter tandem to grace the event were equally-gorgeous Gloria Diaz and Isabelle Daza-Semblat who strutted on the red carpet separately. The veteran beauty queen-actress, who was dressed in a black Filipiniana was escorted by her Los Bastardos co-actor Ronaldo Valdez, while the seasoned actress-model, who decided to put on the blue terno her mom wore 25 years ago to crown Miss India Sushmita Sen as Miss Universe 1994, went solo.

Meanwhile, after celebrating the 18th birthday of his firstborn early this month, talent manager and comedian Ogie Diaz tagged her beautiful daughter Erin to the ABS-CBN Ball 2019 wearing white ensembles from Edward Teng.

From being each other’s partner in the previous staging of the gathering last 2018, Ogie Alcasid and daughter Leila were seen enjoying the evening with their new respective companions. Donning a Randy Ortiz Barong Tagalog, the OPM icon was finally able to walk with his wife, the Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez, on the red carpet after only showing up to the main party last year prior to her official transfer to the network. She wore two looks that night – a Cary Santiago black terno and a Cocoy Lizaso mestiza gown. On the other hand, Leila, who was in her dreamy Vania Romoff modern Filipiniana white number, was accompanied by her dashing beau, indie musician Curtismith.

They might not be full force in gracing the red carpet, with Sylvia Sanchez and husband Arturo parading together while their children Ria and Arjo both opted to go solo, but the Atayde Family still left us in awe with their respective appearances. The sweet and happy couple were both cladded in Frankie de Leon masterpieces, the Parasite Island actress Ria looked ravishing in her white Gabbie Arenas tube dress, while the The General’s Daughter actor Arjo was dashing in his white Suit Up Manila ensemble.

Of course, being one of the most prominent clans in the local entertainment scene, a few Padillas were also present at the event! They might not be currently together, but ex-lovers and proud parents to King Of Hearts Daniel Padilla – Rommel Padilla and Karla Estrada – showed up on the red carpet together! Their son, on the other hand, attended with his on-and-off-screen sweetheart Kathryn Bernardo. The famed action star also had a chance to bond with his nieces Bela Padilla and Kylie Padilla, who came as husband Aljur Abrenica’s gorgeous date, off-cam.

Last, and definitely not the least, were the handsome and brilliant Santiago Brothers Rowell, Randy, Raymart, and Reily, who invaded the red carpet at the same time with their nephew, Hashtag member Ryle Paolo Santiago. All of them picked sought-after Pinoy designer Albert Andrada as the designer of their stylish classic barongs.

These awesome and beautiful families only attested that the ABS-CBN Ball is not only about glitz and glamour or merriment, but it’s also an affair where families could bond and share the love and blessings they’ve got to those people who are in need.
