Swipe to see! 😆 QUICK NAME STORY: My husband bought this Lakers shirt (😑) for Kyler before💛💜, and since this doesn’t quite fit him anymore, we are passing it on to our newest addition to the fam… See you soon, KOBE FEDERICO Santos Fariñas! 🤪👶🏻💙 😂 Ok. My husband and I had a deal. Wala ako magagawa, idol n’ya si Kobe Bryant kahit ako hindi, 😂 but since all my kids ay may “K” name forever, pumayag na ako. Para happy kaming dalawa. Federico, our son’s 2nd name, is my husband’s late father (Jr.) AND grandfather’s (Sr.) name. Fair enough. GREAT deal. Both parents, happy! And if we have a baby girl next, my husband agreed na ako naman ang pipili ng name, “K” parin, shempre. Fair! Anyway! Still on a high! We’re sooo excited to see you Kobe beef, este, handsome Kobe boy! 😆 My #RAINBOWBABY !!! 🤰🏻💙👶🏻 (shout out to @inmywomb for being my go-to ultrasound place since 2009!) #KobeFedericoFariñas #babynumber3 #oneLASToneafterLOL
