Miss World Philippines 2018 Katarina Rodriguez welcomed her first child, Robert Joaquin, with businessman partner Niño Barbers last August 25. In a series of Instagram posts, the new mom opened about the baby’s delivery, calling it the *proudest moment* of her life as she braved herself through water birth.

In the first of her three birth dedication posts, she wrote the most touching caption: “In pageants, they always ask, ‘what’s the essence of a woman?’ I remember practicing this question for two years straight due to my pageant career. I was never really convinced of my own answer to this question, until August 25, 2021.

“What’s the essence of a woman? Her POWER. Power to rule her mind and her body. Power to overcome pain that feels like death but in turn births life. The power to do whatever she puts her mind to.”
