Television host and vlogger Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla gave her fans an intimate look into how she welcomed her second child as she shared her labor and delivery in her latest vlog entry on Sunday.
The 19-minute vlog featured the her preparations for her delivery and included actual clips of her undergoing labor and eventually giving birth to baby Maria Gabriela at a hospital in the United States.
“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,” she said.
Gabriela, who was born last November 15, is Mariel’s second child with her husband, action star Robin Padilla.
They have another daughter, Maria Isabella, who was similarly born in the US on November 14, 2016.
