It’s official, celebrity couple Mariel Rodriguez and Robin Padilla are expecting another baby girl! 👶
On her first-ever YouTube vlog uploaded yesterday, June 30, the actress gave us highlights of their baby’s gender reveal party.
Mariel revealed that their second child was unplanned, saying that she wanted to give her firstborn, Isabella, a sibling once she turns three.
“Baby number two was not planned. In my head, I really wanted to Isabella a sibling, pero gusto ko sana, magta-try ako ‘pag three years old and above na siya, para mas ma-explain ko sa kanya nang mabuti na magkakaroon na siya ng kapatid,” she stated.
She also shared that she’s known for a while that she’s pregnant with a girl but kept it a secret from everyone, even from her husband Robin Padilla, in order to preserve the “surprise.”
“Even si Robin, ‘di niya alam, as in this is the biggest secret that I have kept from him. And I tell him everything, ito ‘yung talagang ni-secret ko. There were times na madudulas na ako pero talagang ginalingan ko talaga na i-surprise siya sa gender ng aming baby number two,” she narrated.
She pressed, “When I found out that she was a baby girl, I cried because I was so happy. God really knows what my Isabela needs.”
Meanwhile, Robin said he does not care about their baby’s gender, as long as she grows up with a good heart.
“Babae, lalaki, bakla, tomboy, walang ano sa akin. Basta tao, gusto ko ‘yung anak ko makatulong doon sa tradisyon na tumutulong sa pamilya, na makatulong doon sa less fortunate,” he enthused.
Mariel and Robin welcomed their first child on November 14, 2016. They have been married since 2010.
Congratulations on your new baby, Robin and Mariel!
