Billy and Coleen explain why they named their son Amari Jaden

New parents Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia have explained why they picked the name Amari Jaden for their firstborn son.

"Matagal na sa ulo ko ang Amari. Sabi ko lang sa kanya before pa, na kapag nagkaroon kami ng lalaki, gusto ko ipangalan Amari," Billy shared during their recent interview with Vice Ganda on "Gabing Gabi na Vice."

He continued, "Ni-research ko 'yung pangalan. Kapag babae, promised by God. Kapag lalaki naman, it means strength."

Coleen then explained that Jaden means "thankful," which is exactly how they feel about their child.

The "Sin Island" actress said, "Gusto namin na habang tumatanda siya, maalala niya na at this moment, ito 'yung pinaka-thankful talaga namin kasi sobra sobra, halos araw-araw umiiyak kami."

Coleen also gave us updates about her recovery after a water birth.

She said, "Everything is good. Nakakalakad na ako ng maayos. Okay na parang ready na to resume. Kaya lang ang pahirap ngayon, wala akong oras kasi talagang maya’t maya kailangan kumain ng baby. Hindi kasi kami nagbo-bottle feed. Pampalakas din daw kasi kapag madalas mag-breastfeed."

Meanwhile, Billy is extremely grateful for the blessing that is their son.

"Sobrang araw-araw ako talaga nagpapasalamat sa Diyos na biniyayaan kami. Hindi ka lang makapaniwala. Alam natin na lahat tayo may pinagdadaanan sa buong mundo. Pero 'yung mafi-feel mo sometimes na, ‘Lord alam kong hindi ko deserve ito pero binigay mo pa rin,’ doon ako talaga nagpapasalamat. Hiningi ko, binigay niya," he said.

"Gabing Gabi Na Vice" airs on Vice's very own digital network, which he launched last August.
