Congrats! I certainly know how they feel. :-)
Nathaniel James or Nate Velasquez-Alcasid
Ogie Alcasid has more good news for friends and followers.
His and wife Regine Velasquez’s first-born, Nathaniel James or Nate for short, is “latching on to mom (Regine) for breastfeeding so he can catch up with weight.”
The third-time dad reports that Baby Nathaniel weighed a light 4.4 pounds when he was born at 7:47 p.m. last Nov. 8 at the Makati Medical Center.
He told Yahoo! Philippines OMG! that this is because his son wasn’t due to come out yet at that time. Baby Nate was expected to be born on or around Nov. 22 yet.
“However, Dra. Lilibeth Genuino decided to do a Caesarean Section last night because Reg’s (Regine’s) amniotic fluid was low and sugar was quite high due to gestational diabetes.”
The proud dad can how heave a sigh of relief. His wife and son are doing well and he is thankful for the prayers they got from family and friends.
In a previous interview, Ogie said he and Regine chose the name Nathaniel for their baby because it means “gift from God."
Ogie has two other children, Leila and Sarah by former wife Michelle van Eimeren, who is now based in Australia with the two girls. With a report from Walden Martinez Belen
