    Rodjun, for his part, also posted on his Instagram. "Welcome to the world, Rodolfo Joaquin Diego III. I Love you so much, my son. I will hold your hand Forever and guide you every step of the way! Thank you, Lord," the new dad said.


    Baby Joaquin's name was derived from "Rodolfo," which is Rodjun's dad's name. This is why the little boy has III affixed in his name. Rodjun told Pep.ph that the name means work and strong.

    The name "Joaquin," on the other hand, is the Spanish version of the name Joachim. It means "lifted by Yahweh" or "God has established." Dianne added that the name "Diego" is a boy's name of Spanish origin, meaning 'supplanter.'

    Being pregnant during the pandemic, Dianne and Rodjun had enough time to prepare for their son's arrival. Baby JOaquin's nursery awaits him.
