Starting a family wasn’t easy for actor Robin Padilla and host Mariel Rodriguez. Five years after getting hitched, the couple announced that they were expecting their first child. But by March 2016, reports circulated that they lost the baby. Mariel got pregnant again that same year (this time with triplets)—only to suffer another miscarriage after six months.
What they went through was incredibly devastating. But with Robin by her side, support from loved ones, and work to keep her occupied, Mariel coped well. And by November 14, the two became proud parents to the beautiful little girl we all know as Maria Isabella.
You could say their 10-month old is something of a miracle baby—that the third time really was the charm for the Padillas. With Robin acting as the working parent and Mariel now on hiatus from showbiz, life couldn’t be better. Click through our gallery to see more of this cutie charmer!
