Yesterday, July 7, GMA-7 shared the news that Max Collins gave birth to her first child, a baby boy. And just this morning, the Kapuso star posted the first photo of her son, Skye Anakin, adorably wrapped in a blanket. On Instagram, Max simply wrote, "Good morning my Skye."
Max's hubby Pancho Magno also shared an Instagram video showing emotional snippets of Max's home water birthing. "The force is strong with this one," wrote Pancho.
He continued, "To our son, Skye Anakin, you are one of the reasons why I believe in God. Can't wait to be your best friend.
"To my amazing wife, you are also one of the reasons why I believe in God, you did everything with no medications and no tear. There are NO WORDS to describe what you did. I love you and your heart! You are meant to be a Mother.
"P.S. To all the moms out there! Much love and respect!
"Thank you to our Delivery team, Ms. Irina our Doula and Ms. Aileen and Ms. Charm our midwives."
The couple previously told PEP.ph that they decided on a home water birth for their firstborn because of the threat of COVID-19 cases in hospitals. "Kasi, imbes na isipin, at hindi kami sure, you know, we'll just wait na lang for the virus to end. Obviously, hindi natin alam kung kailan mage-end, so iniisip namin na mas safe na lang sa house," said Max.
Congrats on your new bb boy, Max and Pancho!
