It has only been a week ago when Kapuso actress Marian Rivera-Dantes awed everyone with her smooth baby bump from her maternity photoshoot and expressed her excitement of having another baby when she shared her pregnancy tips in a new vlog.
Now, the long wait is finally over for her and husband Dingdong as they welcomed their son yesterday afternoon, April 16. The great news was shared by the proud actor on his Instagram account.
Dingdong uploaded a black-and-white photo of his wife staring adoringly at their new bundle of joy, with the caption.“Yahoo! After around 10 hours of labor, Marian finally gave birth to our baby boy at 1:35pm today (grinning face with smiling eyes emoji). Thank you very much for praying with us. (Folded hands emoji) Welcome to the world, Jose Sixto G. Dantes IV!”
The actress has always been open in expressing her wish to have more children. “Ang pagkakaroon ng isang anak ay miracle yan, eh,” Marian shared in their recent vlog. “Kaya laki-laki ang pasasalamat namin kay Lord kasi hiniling namin ito at pinagkaloob sa amin at ipagpapasalamat ko buong buhay ko ang magkaroon ng mga anak.”
On the other hand, the celebrity couple’s firstborn, Maria Letizia, is just as excited to be an ate. Like her parents, the three-year-old had also been wishing wishing for a younger sibling and is more than ready to meet her baby brother.
It was back in September 2018 when Marian announced that she was pregnant, and their baby boy’s gender was revealed through their YouTube channel, The Dantes Squad, on November.
