BENJ MANALO – The celebrity entrepreneur recently spoke about one of the “most memorable dates ever” as his wife Lovely Abella gave birth to their first child.

Meanwhile, Lovely Abella posted a photo on her social media account on Sunday where she can be seen breastfeeding her baby boy while she was still in her hospital gown. In the caption, Lovely said “hindi ko na po kayang magpaganda” because of the hardships she has been through and all she wants is for her baby to be healthy.
She also said that at that time, she had nothing to cling to but her faith in the Lord that he would not abandon us, the love for her from her husband, family, and friends, and prayers from those who prayed for her.
“Binigla kami ng pagkakataon, di ko alam na mararanasan ko lahat ng hindi ko naranasan sa unang anak ko, kaya ang larawan na to ay nagsisimbulo na mahalin natin ang mga nanay at mga magulang natin,” she said. “Walang sinumang magulang naghangad ng masama para sa Anak.”
According to her, she will release a vlog on Saturday to share their struggles as they welcomed their first child together.
