For the first time, John Lloyd Cruz confirmed news about his girlfriend Ellen Adarna giving birth to their son.

In his Instagram post today, October 1, John Lloyd showed a snapshot of his handwritten poem titled "Mga Ibon," dedicated to "Elias."

While he didn't exactly say that Elias is his son, it was previously reported that he and Ellen named their baby Elias Modesto.

John Lloyd expressed through the poem how fatherhood has filled him with joy and contentment in life.

His poem read in part:

"Mangmang pagdating sa'yo

Sa iisang tunog mong taglay

Sa kaaya-ayang sorpresa ng paglapit mo

Sa imahe ng kalayaan na tiyak iwinawaksi mo

Sa perpektong hubog ng iyong galaw

Sa lupa

Sa ere

Sa tubig

Sa'yong talentong alingawngaw ng isang ina."

John Lloyd went on to describe how he enjoys quiet moments with his little one.

"Sa'yong malabalong papel sa ating nakaratay nang sistema

Ako'y mangmang pagdating sa 'yo

Ang paulit-ulit mong huni ay kalinga sa aking mapagisang katahimikan."

At the end of the poem, John Lloyd also wrote the date today, "Oktubre 1, 2018."

John Lloyd has kept a tight lid on any information about his baby with Ellen since she reportedly gave birth in June 2018.

But despite shying away from the public, a photo of the couple frolicking with their baby at the beach made rounds online on Friday, September 28.

Both John Lloyd and Ellen have been on a showbiz hiatus since October last year.

John Lloyd's last appearance in a showbiz-related event was during the Star Magic Ball that was held on September 30, 2017.
