Rumors that Claudine adopted a child began last April, when her daughter Sabina drew a family photo that included an unknown family member named “Noah.” In August, Claudine also shared a photo on Instagram of herself holding a baby and thanking massage service Recovery Mode MNL. “Taking care of an infant can be so tiring. Thank u @recoverymodemnl at this hour naka-rest na ko sa pag-alaga,” she said.

It is only now that she confirmed the rumors.

Claudine currently has three other children: her biological child with actor Raymart Santiago, Santino, and her adopted kids Sabina and Quia.
