  • Janella Salvador and Markus Paterson are finally ready to introduce their son, Jude Trevor Paterson, to the public.

    Earlier today, January 5, 2021, the couple posted separate photos that hinted at the big reveal.

    On her Instagram account, Janella uploaded a photo of her carrying a baby. The 22-year-old captioned it simply with, “It’s time. 8 p.m. Link in bio.” Markus, on the other hand, posted a photo of his finger against a baby’s tiny hand. He also wrote a similar caption as Janella’s.

    The link that the couple mentioned led to an empty YouTube channel with the username “M&J” which could stand for Markus and Janella’s initials. But at 8 p.m. a new video, titled "Hey, Jude" was uploaded on the page.

    The first scene is of Janella minutes after childbirth, with hospital staff cleaning their newborn son and congratulating them. According to the video timestamp, Jude was born on October 20, 2020.


    In a voice over, Janella shares that she and Markus were feeling excited because they were finally ready to introduce their son to the world. 

    "If I'm going to be honest, I was quite nervous about this day because I know how harsh the world can be," the new mom says. "If your dad and I could have you all to ourselves forever, we would, but that would be selfish. You're too precious to not be shared."

    In the 30-minute vlog, Janella shares snippets of her pregnancy journey. From the moment they first heard their son's heartbeat in February, finding out about the baby's gender in May (both were screaming with excitement, but Markus was especially happy to know they were having a little boy), Janella's maternity shoot, the actress flying to London in September, and then finally giving birth via normal delivery.

    Janella's friends and family, including her mom Jenine Desiderio and dad Juan Miguel Salvador, also gave their sweet messages for the newborn. 

    At the last part of the video, Markus shared his message for his son: "There isn't enough words to express how much love I have for you. The minute I saw you I knew I would do anything in this world to protect you.

    You are loved forever and always by your mother and I," he says.

    Rumors that the two were going out started as early as August 2019. But it was only in September 2020 when the couple made their relationship public, amid gossip that the actress was already pregnant with their baby.

    In October 2020, Pep.ph reported that Janella had already given birth, after fans spotted a series of Instagram stories from Markus which featured photos of a baby in a bassinet and a woman sleeping in a hospital bed. These photos were immediately deleted by the actor.

    Now they are introducing their son to the world in their own terms. Congratulations to the couple!
