It hasn’t been a while since the Lord of Scents Joel Cruz brought home his 7th child, Zeid, when he announced the birth of his 8th one a few days ago.
The baby, another boy whose name is yet to be revealed, was born in St. Petersburg, Russia last November 6. Currently, the scent mogul has two daughters and six sons, all born through In Vitro Fertilization.
In an exclusive interview with Moms and Babies, Joel shares his paternal longing for children. “I am so happy for having my 8th baby and that’s what I have wished from the Lord as I wanted a big family since I grew up in a big family as well.”
With three sets of twins, plus his two youngest sons, most would think that the Lord of Scents would already be contented but in response to his announcement, he says would be more than glad to have more daughters.
“Well, I said 8 is enough already but if our good Lord allows me to have 1 or 2 more daughters, I would be very, very happy!” he says in the comments’ section of his Instagram post.
