After giving birth to their first daughter Isabella on November 14, 2016, Robin and Mariel Padilla celebrated her 4th birthday with a planet-themed party and a virtual photo shoot with their immediate family at home. Mariel couldn’t help but get emotional thinking of how their eldest child has grown one year older.
She wrote, "I get teary eyed just thinking about it. you are 4 years old!!! My first born!!! Oh how you have grown, your interests amaze me, your character blows me away and everything you do makes me so proud to be your mom. I purchased a Frozen II themed party a long time ago but now it’s all about planets for you so naturally mom changed it all haha The whole day, planets planets planets... you are our universe @mariaisabelladepadilla don’t grow up too fast... they day I am no longer your sun is the day I die I swear!!! So let me enjoy this time just a little bit more.
Big big thanks to those who made today possible”
Unlike previous years when Isabella loved dressing up as a Disney princess, this year Mariel indulged her love for planets with an outer space themed celebration.
Mariel married Robin Padilla in 2010 after meeting him on the set of Willie Revillame’s show Wowowee where she was a host. After suffering two miscarriages in 2015, the Kapamilya host gave birth to Isabella in 2016 in the state of Delaware in the US followed by second daughter Gabriela in 2019.
