Iya Villania gave birth to her fourth child on Saturday, June 4.

On her Instagram page, Iya shared her journey delivering her fourth offspring while choosing to remain unmedicated.

"My longest and most painful delivery but also the most special because I was praying for strength and courage EVERY SINGLE DAY hoping to get thru an unmedicated birth to wrap up this journey (yes guys, I believe this is the last! )," she posted on social media.


Iya relayed that she almost did not experience an unmedicated delivery. 

"I was at 6 cm and giving up when I asked for the drugs when all of a sudden God flipped a switch and I delivered 30-40 mins after!!!  He knew the desires of my heart and He opened my cervix up before the drugs came . What an experience  Thank you Lord," she wrote.

In her post, Iya also revealed the name of her new baby boy. They named him Astro Phoenix V. Arellano.

She concluded her post with a quote from the song "A Great Work" by Brian Courtney Wilson which goes, "He that has begun a great work in you, is faithful to perform it. God is faithful to perform it."

Meanwhile, Iya's husband, Drew Arellano, shared heartwarming snapshots of his wife and their new child.

"All we need is LOVE. Love is all we NEED," Drew posted on his Instagram page. 

Fellow celebrities of the couple were quick to congratulate them on their new blessing.

"Congratulations strong momma," Lyn Ching commented.

"Congrats guys  Another blessing!" Andi Manzano wrote.

"I'm crying!!!  Congrats pars (Drew)!!" Camille Prats commented.
