Karel Marquez just gave birth to a healthy baby boy!
Karel took to Instagram to share the news earlier today. The baby boy's name is Kobe Federico, and he's Karel's first child with her businessman-husband Sean Fariñas. They first announced the pregnancy in November 2018. They got married in December 2016.
"Kobe Federico Santos Fariñas... Born 1:47 pm today, June 19, 2019. We had our successful breastfeeding sesh just now too at 4:29 pm and he is fast asleep na. I am so happy. Sharing my happiness with you all. Love you. Felt so at ease with St. Luke’s BGC, via emergency CS and I am totally fine. So happy there’s milk for him. I’ve been praying hard for this! O 'di ba, I got time to post while he is asleep beside me at the recovery room. @kobe_farinas" Karel wrote in her post.
Karel also shared a touching video of her and Kobe before a breastfeeding session. How precious!
In May, Karel had a maternity shoot featuring NBA-inspired colors of purple and gold. That's because Sean's favorite team is the L.A. Lakers. No wonder they named their son Kobe!
Karel has two other children from a previous relationship, Kyler and Keiley.
Congrats, Karel and Sean!
