Toni Gonzaga gave an insight into her recent birth journey and finally showed the audience the face of her second child Paulina Celestine, also affectionately known as Polly.
Thanks to a video compilation on her Instagram page on Friday, August 18, the actress-TV host documented the moments between when she found out last December that she was pregnant and when she started hours of work in August before welcoming her daughter.
After giving birth, Toni – who was accompanied in the delivery room by her husband, Presidential Creative Communications Advisor Paul Soriano – burst into tears as she held Polly for the first time.
“You are the greatest reward I have ever held in my arms,” Toni addressed her newborn baby in the caption. “Thank you for showing up on time just when I needed you most. My new best friend Polly.
The video also included a clip of the couple’s firstborn, Seve, greeting his sister and carrying her in his arms.
Fans and other celebrities, including Toni’s sister Alex, gushed over Polly and congratulated the couple in the comments section.
Toni and Soriano, who wed in June 2015, welcomed Seve in October 2016. Toni confirmed her second pregnancy in June, then announced the child’s arrival on August 11. /ra
