While most of her followers, including other celebrities, shared their well-wishes and commented on Mariel’s pregnancy glow in the comments section, one netizen wrote, “Ay girl ulit. Sad naman.”
The remark caught the attention of the celebrity mom, who replied, “How the hell could another sweet baby girl be sad?”
The netizen responded, “[It’s] not what you think. Yeah [it’s] angel it’s a blessing. I thought [it’s] a boy.” She also introduced herself as a fan of Mariel’s husband Robin Padilla.
Mariel wrote back, “So how is it sad?”
The netizen’s last message to Mariel was, “Never mind!!!!!!!!!!!!”
While Mariel did not respond to this netizen’s comments anymore, a number of her followers jumped to her defense.
Tagging the netizen, one follower said, “Why would you say such a thing? You have to think before you type, words written or spoken is something you can’t take back. Damage is already done. It is sad that you don’t understand what you just wrote.”ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
“Sad???? Anong sad sa pagkakaroon ng anak na babae????” another follower commented. “Wag na lang kasi mag-comment pag di rin lang maganda or tama ang sasabihin or pag di sigurado dahil si Mariel/Robin makakabasa. Naka-offend ka na nga, marami pa tuloy nagtaas ng kilay sayo.”
Other followers emphasized that all children, regardless of their sex, are blessings to their parents’ lives.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
“Whatever gender it is, it’s a gift from God. Be thankful,” one follower said.
“Oo nga why sad? Babies are blessings no matter [what] the gender is… as long [as] the baby and momma will be healthy naman,” another commented.
Still, nothing appears to dampen Mariel’s excitement for the arrival of her second baby. The celebrity mom is currently staying in the US, which is where she also gave birth to her first child Isabella back in 2016.
