  • It was just six months ago when Andi Manzano, husband GP Reyes, and daughter Olivia announced there was going to be a new addition to their family. Now, they're officially a family of four!

    Today, January 19, 2019, at 1:09 a.m., Andi and GP welcomed their second baby, another baby girl, at the Makati Medical Center. On the little girl's birth announcement, the couple also finally revealed her name, Corazon Amelia Manzano Reyes, and she and mom look well and recuperating nicely.

    "It was a tough, challenging and long delivery, but God heard our prayers and this little girl is a miracle baby. So much emotions but totally worth it. I love this tiny human so much. She’s here," Andi wrote on the photo she posted on Instagram.

    Andi was already at the  hospital being induced at 3 p.m. on January 18. According to her husband, GP, Andi "pushed hard for hours" and called her his "hero after a pretty tough, grueling, exhausting time in labor from inducing at 3 p.m. to dilating to delivery."

    After thanking his wife's doctors, GP ended his post with this: "My wife, my warrior, my hero. You only made me fall deeper in love with you. I love you so so much! Thank you for bringing me another angel. Yes it is possible to be in love with three women at once."

    Andi spoke to SmartParenting.com.ph in September of 2018, and she shared she had morning sickness and always felt tired and sleepy. (Read her tips on how to cope here.)

    In October, Andi and GP threw the grandest gender reveal party ever. They lit up an entire building pink, boldly declaring "GIRL" not just for their guests but also for the rest of Taguig's Bonifacio Global Center to see.

    Paying forward a month after their gender reveal party of epic proportions, the new mom of two hosted a baby shower for the moms at Fabella Hospital in Sta Cruz, Manila. Andi shared tips as well as gift packs filled with useful goodies for new mom and newborns.

    All that and she still had the time and energy to next and set up an almost-perfect nursery and have it ready for baby Amelia's arrival!

    Congratulations, Andi, GP, and Ate Olivia!
