“It’s a HE! It’s a boy!” Joy wrote ono Instagram a week ago. “Which means, God really wanted Amari to be the only princess with five protectors, plus Daddy!” she added.
“We were praying for a girl,” Gian admitted in the gender reveal video that’s up on Joy’s YouTube channel. “But either way, I am okay with any because this is really a blessing from God,” the soon-to-be mom of six.
Joy and Gian have five kids Hugo, 15, Edrigu, 12, Sandro, 8, Rossano, 7, and the unica hija Amari, 4. Those who attended the Zoom video conference are their extended families, including doting grandparents former actress Helen Gamboa and Senator Tito Sotto, and close friends.
Joy thanked Nice Print Photography for making a gender reveal “party” possible even during the quarantine period. “It made it even more memorable!” she added.
For the gender reveal setup, everything was DIY-ed by Flourish and Frills Concept Design Studio. They made everything and sent it all to Joy’s house for them to assemble.
“They send all the materials, and you just put everything together, just like building legos,” Joy shared. “So easy and simple! It even comes with an instruction manual,” she said.
