1. Markus Paterson
Markus Paterson and Janella Salvador welcomed Jude Trevor Paterson on October 20, 2020! They introduced him to the public on January 5, 2021, through a vlog, and Jude even has his own Insta account now. In an interview, Markus talked about meeting his son for the first time: "Ang hirap i-explain pero the moment na I saw him, parang a whole wave just kind of took over my body, na lahat ng priorities ko noong time na 'yon nawala. It went out the window, like everything is now for him. Everything forever will always be for this little man that I'm holding in my arms."
2. Vin Abrenica
Vin Abrenica and Sophie Albert's daughter was born on March 15, 2021. Vin gushed about being a girl dad in an interview, saying it was very rewarding and that "Every second sinusulit ko, sobrang sarap lang every moment of my life." Vin added: "Mas inspired talaga ako ngayon. I realized that I'm not living my life for myself anymore. At lalo kong minahal ang parents ko kasi hindi pala biro maging magulang."
3. Billy Crawford
Celeb couple Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia welcomed baby Amari on September 10, 2020. It was actually a home birth! In an article published on Preview.ph, Coleen shared, "My team is made up of a midwife (plus a nurse) and a doula, and we are going to try for a water birth right in our bedroom...Giving birth at home has its advantages: My family will be here if I need them, and so will Tamomo (her dog). Haha!"
4. Pancho Magno
Pancho Magno and Max Collins officially became parents in July 2020! Pancho shared the sweetest letter for Max and their son Skye Anakin a few days after his birth, writing on Instagram: "The force is strong with this one. 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!"
