Robin Padilla has posted on his Intagram account this morning that his wife Mariel Padilla has finally given birth after 21 hours of labor. Their first child was born via normal delivery on November 14, 7:56 am (US time) and weighed 7.3lbs. The action star uploaded a video containing parts of Mariel’s delivery.
Yesterday, the actor already posted a short clip of his conversation with Mariel, who was already feeling the pains of labor.
Although he wasn’t able to be with his wife because he wasn’t granted a US visa due to his being convicted of possession of illegal firearms in 1994, Robin was thankful for all those who assisted in the birth of his baby girl, whom they named Isabella.
“Isabella was born 7:56 am on November 14,2016, 7.3 lbs and 20 inches. Exactly 21 hours of labor and normal delivery. Maraming salamat po Mahal na Panginoong may likha sa biyaya ng buhay at kaligayahan.
“Nagpapasalamat po ako sa mga taong inyong inalay sa amin upang maalagaan ang aking asawa sa kanyang maselan na pagbubuntis hanggang sa panganganak.
“Ako ay nagpupugay sa iyo tita Maricon Termulo at Eric Tamesis na nagsilbing hotel ang kanilang bahay, naging driver-bodyguard ang buong pamilya, at higit sa lahat ay ang haplos ng isang ina at sa iyo Sir Abellardo Termulo, sa pagpapakita ng iyong pagmamahal at suporta sa iyong anak, wala po kayong katulad isa po kayong alamat sa pagiging ama at bilang lolo ni Maria Isabella ay sinamahan mo siya sa pagtawid mula sa sinapupunan hanggang sa pagsilang, isa pong karangalan na kayo ang pumutol ng umbilical cord,” Robin said in his post.
