It has been a year and half since bastketball superstar and TV personality Chris Tiu welcomed his first baby daughter with wife, Clarisse Ong, to the world. Clarisse gave birth to a healthy baby girl on June 5, 2016, whom the couple named Amanda Claire Tiu. This adorable little girl has been filling up dad Chris Tiu’s Instagram feed with an abundance of cuteness!
Amanda appears to be a daddy’s girl. Chris himself admitted that he has trouble leaving the house because of his daughter. He even said he finds it difficult to concentrate at work because he always wants to come home right away. With a cute baby like Amanda, we can hardly blame Chris.
On her first birthday, Chris posted a sweet message for Amanda on his Instagram account. He wrote:
“To our little one who can turn a rough day into a beautiful one, make a happy day an even sweeter one, and give life a whole new meaning and purpose. Happy first birthday to our dearest Amanda Abu bear! May you grow up to be beautiful inside out and a faithful servant of Christ. You are our greatest blessing! We love you so much.”
Amanda is also a well-traveled baby. Her parents have taken her on numerous family vacations abroad, which the little girl enjoyed very much. Her family seems to love Canada in particular, so much so that they made several trips there with her.
Chris Tiu and Clarisse were married in a Catholic ceremony in Vancouver, Canada, in September 2013, with only the close friends and family members in attendance. Less than three years later, Clarisse became pregnant with Amanda, whom they welcomed into the world in 2016.
Tiu plays for the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters of the Philippine Basketball Association. He used to play for the Smart Gilas team whom he joined after graduating for the Ateneo de Manila University.
