After flying out of the country with her kids and their grandparents during election day last month, Mariel Rodriguez has been enjoying their first family vacation abroad since the pandemic by taking her daughters Isabella and Gabriela to different amusement parks in Spain as well as enjoying popular landmarks in the country. Her husband Robin Padilla caught up with them in Spain just last week.
In one of her posts, Mariel shared, “Exploring Madrid. saving the museum trips for when they are a little older. We went to the zoo, market, and playgrounds. Experience truly is the best teacher. ” The celebrity mom and live seller also shared her OOTDs during the trip which was met with positive comments from her followers online.
Another one of the sites that Mariel visited twice during their trip is the Jose Rizal monument which she returned to when Robin joined them abroad. “Years ago Robin took me here in Jose Rizal’s monument in Spain, today I brought my kids and grandparents (lola not in picture naghintay sa car ayaw mainitan ) ”
Mariel also shared the story behind how they ended up naming her first child Isabella, based on a member of the royal family in Spain. “We named Isabella after Queen Isabella of Castile, behind is the church where she was crowned Queen. thank you so much Tita @smalllaude for recommending Segovia we looooooove it here!!!!! Isabella said “i belong here!!!” ,” she wrote.
After topping the senatorial race during last month’s national elections, Robin Padilla was proclaimed as one of the country’s 12 new senators by the COMELEC last May 18. Mariel and Robin have been married for 11 years after getting married three times through a Muslim wedding, a Born Again Christian wedding, and an Igorot wedding in 2010.
