Nairaos ni Iwa Moto ang pagbubuntis, na aniya “wasn’t easy,” upang isilang ang second child nila ng partner na si Pampi Lacson nitong January 21, 2021.
Kinabukasan, ibinahagi ng Filipino-Japanese actress ang magandang balita sa Instagram kalakip ang mga litrato ng baby boy at “healthy little warrior” na pinangalanan nilang Caleb Jiro “CJ” Iwamoto Lacson. (Ang full name ni Iwa ay Aileen Iwamoto.)
Pagkaraan ng ilang oras, nag-post din si Pampi sa kanyang account ng photo collage. Makikita doon ang litrato ni Baby CJ kasama ng baby photos ng daughter nila ni Iwa na si Mimi, 7 years old, at panganay niyang si Thirdy, 13. (Ang nanay ni Thirdy, na tinatawag din nilang Muy-Muy, ay ang ex-wife ni Pampi na si Jodi Sta. Maria.)
Pahayag ni Pampi sa caption, “Welcome to the world, Caleb Jiro. Always remember that Kuya Muy-Muy and Ate Mimi love you.”

Bumuhos din ang pagbati sa post ni Iwa na puno ng kaligayahan sa pagdating ni Baby CJ bilang “beautiful blessing on the 21st day of the 21st year of the 21st century.”
Lahad ng new mom, “Lo and behold, here comes the newest addition to our growing family. Our new bundle of joy — our little boy who will be filling our hearts and lives with love and happiness from this day forward!”
Dagdag pa niya, “My heart is overflowing with love and joy the first time I held you in my arms. Our son, baby CJ, yours, and Ate Mimi’s first day in life are the best days of mine!
"I could not explain the outpouring happiness that I am feeling right now. I am so blessed to have you, Ate Mimi, Kuya Muy, and Daddy Pampi, and I could not ask for more!”

Binanggit din ng StarStruck Season 3 runner-up ang pinagdaanang pagbubuntis. Kuwento niya, “My pregnancy wasn’t easy — in fact, it is still not time for him to come out just yet, but I guess baby CJ was so excited to see and conquer the outside world. Such a warrior just like me, isn’t he?”
Kaya naman puno si Iwa ng pasasalamat sa suportang natanggap: “Thank you to our medical team headed by Dra. Villanueva, to our families and friends for including us in your prayers, to my mahal Pampi.
"It is such a bliss having you by my side on this new journey of ours. And above all else, thank You to our Almighty God for the amazing blessing and for keeping me and baby CJ safe throughout the delivery.”
