Patty Basa-Tan has definitely bloomed into a beautiful and hands on mommy.
She was better known as the playmate to our kids. My Tatiana coveted her Tita Patty’s iTouch as she claimed it has more games for kids than mine. At 26, she still enjoys the company of kids and exudes an angelic and innocent feel even with her humor and antics.
The birth of Mischa Danelle “Dani” Basa Tan on September 12, 2012 made a mommy out of our baby-friend/colleague. In pictures and colorful narrations, Patty proudly displays motherly affection on her new bundle of joy with husband Michael Paul Palma Tan.

Baby Dani had her first coming out party last December 27, as the Basa and Tan family celebrated the blessing of the little one into the Christian world. The proud parents chose a couple of their closest friends and relatives to stand as godparents to their first child. Pat’s sister, cousins, and friends from college and high school make up the list of Ninangs, namely Christia Alice Basa, Lace Guy, Ina Abella Limpin, Aisha Gutierrez Hemandas, Allison Cadena, Anna Bahala, and Teresa Jalotjot. The chosen Ninongs are the tight-knit pack from Michael’s childhood as represented by Jonee Abella, Jeff Reyes, Noel Uy, Al David Uy, Jason Tan, Dodie Villafuerte, and Reggie Reyes. Patty’s only brother, Jose Basa, is also one of the Ninongs.
Watching her enjoy her role as mommy during her baby’s baptismal party, I couldn’t help but smile at the wonderful picture motherhood has made of Patty. The youthful glow and playful vibe remains as this wide eyed dreamy gal, who still fancies Disney fairytales, pranced and carried around her 3-month old “Dani” for snap shots with friends and family. The cherubic cheeks and “air-balloon” muscles of the little princess were far too cute, and Patty never goes amiss in happily telling tales of her baby’s heavy weight charms and appetite. The muscle-healing patch on Patty’s hand is proof alone of how inseparable mom and baby are.

To Patty, here’s wishing for many blessed years of good health and happiness for your family. And yes, welcome to the world of kiddie parties and do-it-yourself paper crafts. Cheers to you, pretty mommy! J
