As Alwyn Uytingco and Jennica Garcia's second child Alessi turns one year old, the former child actor made a revelation not only about the fact that his wife decided to do water birth but also how he ended up acting as 'kumadrona' or midwife during the latter's childbirth at home. 

According to Alwyn, he and Jennica immediately rushed home to prepare for his wife's childbirth after going to the hospital for a checkup. But due to the slow traffic caused by heavy rains, their 10-minute trip turned into an agonizing 45-minute long trip, which gave Jennica constant contractions. 

"Ang 'di ko makakalimutan sa araw na ‘yon, umuulan ng malakas. Parang pelikula. Matapos namin magpa-checkup sa ospital, agad kaming umuwi para maghanda sa panganganak ni Jennica. Ang usual na 10 mins, naging 45 mins na biyahe dahil sa matinding ulan at traffic. At sa buong biyahe namin, tuloy-tuloy lang ang contractions ni Jennica. Kaya mas lalong nakakakaba! Kasi puwedeng lumabas yung bata anytime sa gitna ng biyahe namin. Pero salamat sa Diyos at hindi nangyari ‘yon, nakarating kami ng sakto sa oras," he wrote. 

But only 30 minutes after they got home, Jennica started giving birth to their daughter. With the midwife arriving late as well, he ended up as the kumadrona to her childbirth. 

"Pag dating sa bahay, 30 mins lang at ayan na! Lumabas kaagad si Alessi at ako na kaniyang tatay ang sumalo! (Na-late ng dating ang kumadrona dahil din sa traffic)," he wrote, revealing he caught their baby with his own hands. 

That moment, according to Alwyn, made him realize he still has a lot of things to learn as a father. 

"Doon pa lang, nasabi ko na marami pa ko matutunan bilang isang ama at bilang isang magulang. At doon ko lang din natutunan na sa unang tingin pa lang, alam ko ng mahal ko kaagad si Alessi, at hindi na mababawasan yon kundi madagdagan pa araw-araw. Sana lumaki kang malakas, malusog at masaya, anak. Mahal na mahal ka namin ni Nanay mo, at siyempre lalo na ng Ate Mori mo," he stated. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

“Maligayang Kaarawan, Alexis Severina!” // Hindi siguro alam ng karamihan na sa bahay ipinanganak si Alessi, sa proseso ng ‘water birth’. May mga dahilan si Jennica kung bakit ito ang gusto niyang paraan ng panganganak, pero hindi iyon ang ikukuwento ko. Ang di ko makakalimutan sa araw na ‘yon, umuulan ng malakas. Parang pelikula. Matapos namin magpa-check up sa ospital, agad kaming umuwi para maghanda sa panganganak ni Jennica. Ang usual na 10 mins, naging 45 mins na biyahe dahil sa matinding ulan at traffic. At sa buong biyahe namin, tuloy-tuloy lang ang contractions ni Jennica. Kaya mas lalong nakakakaba! Kasi puwedeng lumabas yung bata anytime sa gitna ng biyahe namin! Pero salamat sa Diyos at hindi nangyari ‘yon, nakarating kami ng sakto sa oras. Pag dating sa bahay, 30 mins lang at ayan na! Lumabas kaagad si Alessi at ako na kaniyang tatay ang sumalo! (Na-late ng dating ang kumadrona dahil din sa traffic.) Doon pa lang, nasabi ko na marami pa ko matutunan bilang isang ama at bilang isang magulang.

Sana lumaki kang malakas, malusog at masaya, anak. Mahal na mahal ka namin ni Nanay mo, at siyempre lalo na ng Ate Mori mo. Happy Birthday Alexis Severina! P.S. Nanggaling ang pangalan niyang 'Alexis' dahil sa pangalan ng nanay niya na 'Alexis Jennica' at 'Severina' dahil pinanganak siya ng almost exactly 7pm ng gabing iyon. And also, seven is God's number. #PamilyaUytingco #BabyAlessi #AlessiTurnsOne

Meanwhile, Alwyn also explained the meaning behind their daughter's name Alexis Severina. 

"Nanggaling ang pangalan niyang 'Alexis' dahil sa pangalan ng nanay niya na 'Alexis Jennica' at 'Severina' dahil pinanganak siya ng almost exactly 7pm ng gabing iyon. And also, seven is God's number," he revealed. 

Alwyn and Jennica have another daughter named Mori.
