Special, unforgettable … This is how Sabrina Seara defines the celebration of the baptism of her son Maximiliano that took place last weekend in Miami under the Catholic rite. "We [also referring to her husband Daniel Elbittar] were very moved throughout the ceremony because seeing our little boy there giving him to God obviously moved us a lot," the Venezuelan actress excitedly confesses to People en Español. “Being with our families, with our friends, that our son shared with all of them - there were people who did not know him - so I think that this connection with the family, with God was very important for us and without a doubt yesterday [Saturday] It was a completely unforgettable day”, he affirms.
Seara, who recently concluded her participation in the successful superseries The Lord of the Skies (Telemundo), confesses that she got 'a little nervous' during the ceremony since her first-born son 'had a fit of sleep and started crying a lot'.

"I wanted him to enjoy this moment too but he is very young and he doesn't understand it so half of the ceremony was crying, then I was calm because the other moms told me that it is normal for children to cry generally at their christening," she explains.
"Daniel and I are in love with our son," says the Venezuelan actress.
After the christening, Seara and her husband are already fully involved in the preparations for their son's first birthday, which will be next week.
“We are already organizing his birthday, which is going to be Mickey Mouse's. All the preparations have us very happy. I think all parents are excited about their children's first year,”acknowledges Seara.

For Sabrina this first year as a mom has been an enriching experience in every way.
"This child came to our lives definitely to fill us with love," he says. "He is so nice, so smiling, he has his character, I am not going to deny that but he gets his character when he has to take it out of the rest. He is a very nice boy, he always has a smile."
"Daniel and I are in love with our son and as I tell everyone this child came to teach us, he finally changed our lives to positive," he concludes.
