Last May 11, Mariel Rodriguez turned emotional as she announced she was three months pregnant with her second child on noontime show “It’s Showtime”. During the variety show’s Mother’s Day special, Rodriguez mused on what she thought of the occasion before becoming a mom.
Mariel and husband Robin Padilla welcomed their first child, Isabella, on November 14, 2016. The birth of their daughter came a year after Mariel suffered two miscarriages, both of which happened within the same year.
During her announcement, she is also all praises for her fellow moms who during that time will be celebrating Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 12. “Alam niyo po para sakin, yung birthday important, yung Christmas, yung Valentines, all of those holidays syempre important lahat ng yun. Pero nung naging mommy ako, yung Mother’s Day, yun yung day na parang naging pinaka importante saken. Yun yung day na feeling ko dapat i-honor lahat ng nanay, hindi talaga siya biro. Ang hirap pero sobra niyang saya.” said Rodriguez.
Mariel also disclosed that she and her husband got really surprised when they found out that she is pregnant. “Blessing me again with another one, blessing us kaming dalawa ng asawa ko, kahit na na-surprise kami dito sa second baby, surprise na surprise kami lalu na yung asawa ko talaga” added Rodriguez.
Looking back at her journey, the Kapamilya celebrity mom took the opportunity to thank the It’s Showtime crowd for their love and support.
