Two years after having their adorable firstborn Maria Isabella, It’s Showtime host Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla gave birth to her and versatile actor Robin Padilla’s second child Maria Gabriela last November 15 at Delaware, USA – just a day after their first daughter’s third birthday.
And just a week prior to celebrating her first month, Gabriela already had her Instagram debut after her Mommy Mariel posted three photos of her on Thursday, December 5, which she captioned as is, “Thank you so much for the 1.2m views on Gabriela’s birth vlog on YouTube (link is on my bio)!!! Thaaaaaank you!!!! Here she is making her instagram debut 💕 btw she looks exactly like Isabella!!!!”
Prior to that, Mariel posted a set of never-before-seen photos of her while vacationing in Europe with her husband, which she recalled as the time when she mourned and healed over the miscarriages she had then. She also described in the caption how Isabella became her “answered prayer” while Gabriela as their “biggest surprise ever”.
In the latest vlog she published on her official YouTube channel last December 1, the 35-year-old host documented the process she went through before and during her delivery – from her trips to Bayhealth Hospital, her bonding time with Isabella before welcoming her little sister, her being induced, up to her giving of birth. According to her, heir bouncing baby girl was born at exactly 3:25 in the afternoon and weighed seven pounds and was 20 inches in length.
On that same video, which has now already raked in over 1.2 million subscribers as of this writing, we’re also able to witness how she bravely endured the pain of natural birth, which was her wish, and how she got emotional upon seeing and holding Gabriela in her arms. She shared as well how her Daddy Jojo never left her side and tightly held her hand all throughout, since her husband Robin wasn’t there.
As we join their family in welcoming their newest princess’, let’s take a look on the irresistible cuteness of Baby Gabriela through her photos in this gallery!
