- Iya Villania and Drew Arellano’s first kid is a boy
- He was named Antonio Primo after Drew’s late father
- Drew and Iya have been married for two years before she got pregnant
GMA Network star Iya Villania has given birth to a bouncing baby boy.
On Instagram, Iya’s husband, television host Drew Arellano posted a photo of their little Antonio Primo Villania-Arellano who was seemingly fresh out of his momma’s womb.
Antonio’s photos garnered so much likes on Drew’s Instagram account. Drew’s photo was flooded with congratulatory messages from fans and friends.
Prior to giving birth, Iya had been visibly excited about her pregnancy since she announced it last March. The television host and actress kept posting on Instagram her daily pregnancy antics notes.
“I’m looking forward to just having a baby in the house. I’m looking forward to the energy that the baby will bring. I’m looking forward to breastfeeding, I’m looking forward to seeing Drew as a papa,” she was quoted in a Rappler story.
The coolest part of Iya’s Instagram journal is that she still maintained her active lifestyle despite carrying a baby. Both Iya and her husband are triathletes, finishing Iron Man events in the past. How likely would baby Antonio grow up to be active too?
Well, the couple has yet to find out. But now, it seemed they still bask in the joy of having their first baby since they were wedded two years ago in a tear-jerking ceremony by the cliff.
Iya and Drew were a couple for 10 years before their marriage.
In a story by ABS-CBN in January, Iya disclosed that she and Drew never had intercourse in their 10-year relationship. Her statement was a defense to her best friend Nikki Gil who was addressing rumors that she and her ex-boyfriend Billy Crawford broke up because of her vow of chastity.
“Well, nasa values din naman ng lalaki ‘yun, e [It’s in the values of the guy]. It’s really up to the person. It really boils down to the values,” Iya previously said.
