Paolo Valenciano and wife Sam Godinez welcomed their first child together, Nataleia Martine Godinez Valenciano, last November 2, and the little girl has since become the darling of her family.
Giving us a hint on how he will so obviously spoil his granddaughter, Gary Valenciano hasn't been shy in showing just how delighted he is to be a "pop-pop."
In an Instagram post yesterday, November 3, Mr. Pure Energy wrote about the impact of Baby Leia in his life.
"It's such a different feeling," he related. "Being more mature and a lot older today, I feel certain things I didn't feel when I was a lot younger. These are feelings and emotions that have registered in my heart for the very first time. It's a day of many many firsts. My first born has his first child. First time to be welcomed into the world of grandparenthood. My first grandchild."
He added, "The first time to see my son walk out of the delivery room with the nurse who handed Leia to him for him to carry...the thought of which still brings tears to my eyes; these are all just a few of the things that perhaps occurred when Pao was born but this time I'm with him to witness him react to [the] arrival of his first."
In a separate photo posted today, November 4, the veteran total performer gave us the vision of pure joy: a happy family welcoming a little miracle in their lives.
He wrote, "This is what 'JOY' looks like. Lord I can't thank you enough for Leia's safe adventure into the world. Forever take care of Sam...that she may always remain to be a healthy mom. Be their provider for their every need, everyday Jesus. Thank you...thank you...thank you!"
In yet another post from Gary (who shows really just how extremely excited he is to be a grandpa!), we are treated to a beautiful picture of Paolo handing his daughter to his father.
"The moment when two dads enjoy their most precious of all gifts...their children. This one just leaves me overjoyed," Gary wrote in the caption, "I am certain that their heavenly Father was looking upon them with gladness."
Leia's uncle and Paolo's younger brother Gab Valenciano also expressed his joy over the new addition to their family in an Instagram post today, November 4.
He wrote, "Words will never be enough to define how proud and happy I am. I am officially an uncle. Congratulations @paolovalenciano and @yosameti. Leia is beautiful beyond description. Love you three. Four, including Trooper! #BaeVee"
Congratulations to the Valencianos!
