Mariel Rodriguez and Robin Padilla’s second daughter Baby Gabriela just made her Instagram debut!
Last Thursday, December 5, the actress shared Baby Gabriela’s first photos on her account, and in the caption wrote, “She looks exactly like Isabella!”
Meanwhile, in a vlog that she posted on her YouTube channel on December 1, Mariel opened up about her preparations before giving birth.
“I knew it wasn’t going to be easy that Robin and I weren’t going to be together when I deliver Gabriela, but we decided to make some sacrifices for our kids. During labor, all I can think of is Isabella and Robin. All moms out there understand why. I am now sharing it with you guys because I want you to see the beauty above all the pain of giving birth. We are the happiest baby Gabriela. Thank you for being such a good girl," she captioned.
She added, "You all have been with me since the gender reveal then the baby shower and you’ve witnessed all my struggles with my pregnancy, but now I am so excited to welcome another beautiful blessing to pamilya Padilla. Thank you everyone for the support and love that my family receives, to my dad who was there throughout the whole thing and to Robin. Thank you so much!”
