The proud father shared the good news on his Instagram with photos of Mariel while on labor. He also added a quote about being a father who may not be around but is still a “guiding light” to his family.

Robin said, “In the name of the FATHER, A father is neither an anchor to hold us back nor a sail to take us there but a guiding light whose love shows us the way.’ Today, Maria Gabriela de Padilla was born. God is great!”

Robin shared how he is thankful that Mariel got to make her “dream” come, which is to deliver their baby via natural birth. He wrote, “My wife had her dream fulfilled again, Gabriela was delivered by natural birth. Praise God everything was very smooth. Her family in the US, especially her dad watched over her.”

Mariel and Robin’s eldest daughter, Isabella, just turned 3 years old. Both Isabella and Gabriela were born in the United States, where Mariel’s parents are based. Robin was absent in both of his children’s delivery due to problems with his visa.

Despite his absence, Robin had defended their decision regarding Mariel giving birth abroad. He said it’s within Mariel’s right to decide to give birth in the United States, where she is also considered a citizen. He also said that he and his wife were more Filipino than anyone else. Robin said, “Ang pagiging Fil-Am ay hindi pagtataksil sa Inang Bayan.”
