Former actress Nadine Samonte has given birth to her third child with her husband, businessman Richard Chua.

"God is truly amazing. Thank you, Lord. Everyone meet Harmony Saige Chua, our third/bunso," said Nadine in her post announcing the birth of her daughter on Instagram Tuesday, November 30.

"Grabe ang journey ng third ko pero we survived," she continued. "Thank you [to my doctors] for taking care of Harmony, and to all the nurses...thank you. Manila Doctors Hospital will always have a special place in my heart, you guys are the best."

Aside from her doctors, Nadine also expressed her gratitude to those who prayed for her safe delivery. She also thanked those who congratulated her and her husband on their third baby.

"Now time to rest. Thanks everyone for congratulating us and sending prayers before ako pmunta sa OR. Thank you," she said.

"To my husband, thank you for taking care of the kids at mas kabado ka pa kesa sa 'kin. Hahaha. Love you and the kids so much," she added.

Nadine and her husband announced that they were expecting their third child in June. At the time, the former actress was already in her second trimester of pregnancy.

Previously, Nadine revealed having a complicated pregnancy, as she opened up about struggling with an autoimmune and hormonal disorder in an emotional post.

"Everyday is a struggle but it's more of a blessing. Feeling my tummy grow everyday is what I'm thankful for. Thank you Lord for our 3rd baby. Yes, I still have PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) and mostly APAS (antiphospholipid antibody syndrome). This journey is particularly different from my 2 kids. We almost lost our baby during my first trimester but with God's grace and Guidance hindi nya kami pinabayaan. God is Good," she said.

Despite this, the StarStruck graduate said she is not complaining, and that she is "one strong momma" fighting for her children.

"Ang dami kong iniyak sa journey na 'to. Hehe. Pero I won't give up EVER! I'll fight and stay strong for them! Go APAS and PCOS mommas out there. Kaya natin 'to!" she said.

At the time, Nadine also expressed her excitement to welcome her "rainbow baby"—which she said would be her last one—into the world soon. 

Nadine and Richard, who is the son of actress Isabel Rivas, have been married since 2013. They tied the knot in a private ceremony in Zambales.

In 2016, Nadine gave birth to their first child, Heather Sloane.

The couple then welcomed their second child, Austin Titus, in 2019.
