Trina 'Hopia' Legaspi Welcomes First Child! 'Nung Narinig Ko Na Iyak Niya, Sobrang Surreal'
  • Former child actress Trina Legaspi gave birth to her first child with her husband Ryan Jarina last week, March 13. 

    The Goin' Bulilit star aka Hopia announced the news on Instagram today. She wrote, "Last week at 5:09 pm, our lives changed forever!" She shared photos inside the delivery room and at home. 

    Trina said she delivered their first child via normal delivery, and she was in labor for eight hours. They named their baby Kaela. 

    "Parang nag-slow mo ‘nung narinig ko na iyak niya, sobrang surreal, ‘di ko mapigilan umiyak. You are worth all the pain our baby girl. Daddy and I love you so much!" she said.

    The 28-year-old mom shared her first realization as a first-time parent, "Totoo nga po ang sabi nila, [one] week na po kaming walang tulog ni Ryan Jarina."

    She announced her pregnancy in October last year, "From all the nanay roles to becoming a real-life mother!" she wrote in an Instagram post.


    Trina and Ryan had a Mickey Mouse-themed gender reveal party at the reception of their second wedding early this year. They first tied the knot in November 2021 in a Christian ceremony.

    She also had a beautiful floral-themed maternity shoot. Check out the photos here

    How to catch some sleep for first-time parents

    Getting enough sleep is very important, especially for new moms like Trina. When moms are well rested, they are more capable and patient in caring for their children. Johns Hopkins Medicine suggests these tips for new parents.

    1. Try to sleep when the baby sleeps

    We know that this is easier said than done, but if you can do it, then go ahead. Newborns are napping all the time, so while it's tempting to finish some chores or use your phone when they are sleeping, prioritize resting and sleep instead. Everything else can wait, but you deserve to rest.

    2. Share baby duties

    As moms, it's automatic to feel like you can do it all in the name of your newborn child, but it's better and smarter to ask for help from your husband or your family members. Share duties such as feeding, diaper changes, and cleaning with whoever is available so you can have time to sleep.

    3. Practice good sleep hygiene

    Johns Hopkins recommends not using your phone and other electronics before going to bed so that the light from these devices won't confuse your body clock. You might also want to cut on your caffeine, so you can sleep faster.
