LOOK: LJ Reyes gives birth to baby girl with Paolo Contis
Actress LJ Reyes delivered her bouncing baby girl, Summer Ayanna, with her boyfriend Paolo Contis on Friday, Jan. 4.
Contis announced the good news by posting via Instagram a photo of a clock on the same day, showing the time, 4:56 p.m., when Summer was born.
In a separate post yesterday, the proud daddy can be seen holding the baby girl in his arms.
“Last week of December pa lang nagbabadya ka nang lumabas anak,” he wrote. “Maraming salamat at pinaabot mo ng 2019!”
(You were about to come out to the world during the last week of December, my child. Thank you very much that you made it to 2019.)
Reyes expressed her happiness and love for her daughter in a photo showing Summer Ayanna’s foot.
“We’ve waited for you… and now I can’t believe you’re already in our arms!” Reyes said. “Worth every single pain! I love you so much Summer! Mommy is so crazy about you!”
Reyes explained last November that “Summer” was the name she has always wanted to give her child. Meanwhile, they both chose “Ayanna,” an African name which means “beautiful flower,” because they both wanted their daughter’s second name to start with a letter “A.”
LJ Reyes has a son, Aki, with her former boyfriend actor Paolo Avelino. Contis, on the other hand, has two daughters, Xonia and Xalene, with his ex-wife, former EB (Eat Bulaga) Babes member Lian Paz. JB
