“Sana Dalawa Ang Puso” actor Robin Padilla was ecstatic to see his wife Mariel Rodriguez back on TV and reunited with her “It’s Showtime” family.
Mariel made her TV comeback last Monday, June 18, and was warmly welcomed by her co-hosts and madlang people in the studio and at home.

"Ibang klaseng kaligayahan [ang dala] ng showbiz at entertainment - nakikita ko sa kanya ‘yun. Para na naman siyang sinag ng araw ngayon,” Robin described his wife to ABS-CBN News last June 19.
The actor said he would never stop Mariel from doing what she loves, noting that the noontime show is quite special to them both.
“Alam niyo naman na nabuo ang anak ko dahil sa ‘[It’s] Showtime,’” he said.
The “Unexpectedly Yours” actor revealed that his wife’s comeback was meant to be much sooner, but was pushed back so she could lose the weight she gained during her pregnancy and the months after.
“Noon pa naman, babalik naman siya talaga,” he said. “Naantala lang kasi nagkaroon ng malfunction 'yung anak namin - naging colic 'yung bata and underweight.”
Robin explained that because he and Mariel wanted to nourish Baby Isabella organically, the new mom had to eat a lot in order to produce milk for their daughter.

“Ang ginawa ni Mariel, isang taon siyang nag-breastfeed. Siyempre, kasama ng breastfeeding [ay] kumain siya,” he shared. “Medyo lumaki 'yung asawa ko. Ayaw naman niyang bumalik sa showbiz na ganun.”
But with both of them back at work, who’s watching Baby Isabella? 🤔
“Ang reliever ay 'yung lola, si mommy April. Siya ang nag-aasikaso kay Isabella,” Robin revealed. “Pati na rin 'yung mga teacher na pinili ko.”
Apparently, he and Mariel have decided to homeschool their little girl this early on, saying, “Mas naniniwala ako ngayon doon. Siguro dadating din ang araw na mag-aaral siya sa paaralan, pero sa ngayon mas gusto ko home study.”
Of course, despite their busy schedules, Baby Isabella always comes first.
“Ang pinakaimportante ngayon sa amin ay 'yung bata,” he said.
