MANILA, Philippines — Kapamilya host Korina Sanchez revealed the full names of her twins with senatorial aspirant Mar Roxas. 

In an interview with the "Magandang Buhay" hosts Karla Estrada, Jolina Magdangal and Melai Cantiveros in her show "Rated K," Korina revealed her baby boy’s full is Pepe Ramon Gerardo Manuel Denzel Sanchez Roxas, who was named after her and Mar’s father Ramon and Gerardo, and Hollywood actor Denzel Washington.

Meanwhile, she disclosed that her baby girl’s full name is Pilar Judith Celia Ester Korina Sanchez Roxas, who was named after their mothers Judith and Cecilia. 

“Pepe, Ramon, my dad, Gerardo, tatay ni Mar, Manuel, si Mar, and Denzel kasi ilang beses ni Mar pinanood yung ‘Equalizer,’ nahumaling siya kay Denzel,” Korina explained. 

“Si Pilar naman, so Pilar ang una, then Judith, mommy ni Mar, Celia my mom, Ester, lola ni Mar at dinagdagan ko ng Korina, hindi niya alam,” Korina expounded. 

She also added that the twins’ nicknames, Pepe and Pilar, were chosen because they sound like the Filipino versions of Jack and Jill. 

“Nung nalaman namin na kambal at alam na namin lalaki at babae, sabi namin na tawagin nalang nating Jack and Jill. ‘Yung Pepe at Pilar, ‘yan ang Jack and Jill ng Pilipinas,” Korina said. 

Korina and Mar introduced their babies last February. They were married in October 2009.
