After posting series of baby bump and pregnancy updates on her Instagram account, Andi Eigenmann finally welcomed her second child into the world last night, July 24.
This time, Andi announced the good news on her Instagram stories uploading a photo of her partner Philmar Alipayo, who appeared cradling their baby girl on his arms and another photo of her lying in her hospital bed after giving birth.
Present inside Andi’s hospital room was her firstborn Ellie, who was caught singing and looking after her mom in the Instagram stories of Philmar.
The 29-year-old mother of two uploaded her 39 week-baby bump picture three days ago and revealed that she can no longer undergo vaginal birth after a cesarean section. Nonetheless, she said, “all that matters to me is that I go through the best (safest) way to deliver baby into this world.”
Her full caption read: “Week 39! Baby has been goin lower by the week according to my doctor. Such good news to hear but my situation still isnt ideal enough to be so sure of achieving my VBAC dreamz (same reason I went through a CS with Ellie in the past.) At the beginning of my second pregnancy, I became more aware of what I wanted for myself (and baby) and a VBAC + going as natural as possible was definitely the top priority. Honestly, I knew Id be devastated if I couldnt go for one. But as my pregnancy is nearing its end, all that matters to me is that I go through the best (safest) way to deliver baby into this world.”
“I am still proud of myself because I atleast tried and did what I could. I will accept what is meant to be and keep smiling! So in the event of another C- section, my new mindset is to just promise myself that I will be even more disciplined in terms of achieving a fast recovery. Getting back into my daily habits of living healthy and clean ASAP is enough motivation specially because this time I will be having a new little ray of sunshine to raise and nurture. I am still scared and nervous, but also very excited to officially be a mom of 2 very soon!.”
Congratulations, Andi and Philmar!
