After more than a month of waiting, action star Robin Padilla finally met his second daughter Baby Maria Gabriela with wife Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla.
The 50-year-old celebrity father who was once dubbed as the “Bad Boy” of Philippine cinema might look masculine and tough on Television but behind this strong image is a very loving and caring father to his children.
It will be recalled that Mariel had to stay in the United States for over three months, as she was preparing for the delivery of her second child. She gave birth via normal delivery section at a hospital in Delaware, last November 15, which is only a day after the 3rd birthday celebration of her first child, Maria Isabella.
For those who are wondering why Robin is not in the US when his second baby was born, reports said that he couldn’t be with Mariel because his visa was not approved.
In an Instagram post of Mariel last Sunday, December 22, the 35-year old TV host-actress announced that she has returned here in the country together with her two adorable daughters, her newborn Maria Gabriella, and 3-year-old Maria Isabella.
She uploaded a video showing photos as Robin welcomed his “Tres Marias.”
“WE ARE HOME!!!!! After 3 months… my family is finally WHOLE!!! home will always be with you [Robin]. Thank you so much for allowing me to do this for our children it was only possible because of you and your support. We missed you sooooo much!!!”
In the last part of her post, Mariel said that she will later upload a video featuring their reunion with Robin, as well as Gabriela’s first meeting with her celebrity father on her YouTube channel.
Prior to this, the “It’s Showtime” host shared a vlog on YouTube showing how she welcomed her second child, Baby Gabriela.
