Expectant mom Mariel Rodriguez is glowing, and yesterday, she revealed the gender of her baby in her very first vlog. The It's Showtime host recently held a gender reveal party at The Bellevue Manila in Alabang.
In her vlog, Mariel revealed that their second baby was not planned.
"In my head, I really wanted to give Baby Isabella a sibling," Mariel shared. "Pero gusto ko sana magta-try ako 'pag three years old and above na siya para mas ma-explain ko sa kanya nang mabuti na magkakaroon siya ng kapatid."
She also shared why she calls the baby "Baby Surprise."
"[Baby Isabella] is so selosa so every day so feeling ko 'di pa siya ready. Pero maaga binigay ni God 'yung blessing. Kaya ang nickname ko for this baby is Baby Surprise."
She kept the gender a secret, even from Robin Padilla!
"The best part is even si Robin hindi niya alam, as in this is the biggest secret I've kept from him, and I tell him everything. Ito 'yung talagang sinecret ko from him, may mga times talaga na madudulas na 'ko pero talagang ginalingan ko talaga na i-surprise siya sa gender ng aming Baby Number Two."
The gender reveal party featured a large woven basket with ribbons that Mariel and Robin pulled, and pink flowers came out! They're having a baby girl!
Congrats, Mariel, Robin, and Baby Isabella!
