As for Lara and Marco, they were simply happy to receive another blessing from God. The couple already knew their baby's gender a day before everyone else did. Marco did hope for a baby girl, but he was still happy to have another boy.
As a fan of the late Kobe Bryant, the actor even quipped that they only need two more babies to officially become a basketball team. Since Kobe was a father to four daughters, it made Marco wonder about having a daughter of his own.
He said, "Parang maganda rin na may babae, but, at the same time, gusto ko rin ng lalake. Parang torn ako kung ano talaga gusto ko. Basta healthy talaga."CONTINUE READING BELOWRecommended Videos
