/ 09:44 AM July 27, 2019

Andi Eigenmann proudly shared for the first time a closeup look at her healthy newborn on Saturday, July 27.

The actress said in an Instagram post that baby Keliana Alohi Eigenmann Alipayo or Lilo was born on July 23. Lilo seems to be a fitting name as the eponymous Disney character was a spunky Hawaiian girl who loves to surf.

On the 23rd day of July 2019, at 1:27PM, we met the newest member of our tribe. We decided to name her, Keliana Alohi Eigenmann Alipayo, but you may call her Lilo. 🤗

Eigenmann said in an Instagram post on Friday that she gave birth via C-section, the same way that she delivered Ellie, her first child, with Jake Ejercito.

Boyfriend Philmar Alipayo and Ellie both showed their love and support for Eigenmann, as seen in pictures she posted of them in the hospital room.

One day into week 39 of my pregnancy: I came to a decision of going for another c- section operation, in order to bring my second child into this world. Having gone through this process before didn’t make anything easier or less scary (Specially because this was not how I had thought my second birth story would be). But with these two (+ the rest of my fam) by my side through everything, it was easier to trust that everything will be alright. True enough, birth is beautiful no matter how it happens. I couldn’t be any more grateful that our baby girl came out healthy and safe. I realise now that it’s what matters most. Just got back home from the hospital and we are already missing the comfort of having people around us to help 😂 nevertheless we are super excited and happy to take on this new chapter of our lives with our newborn baby girl.🤗

“Having gone through this process before didn’t make anything easier or less scary (Specially because this was not how I had thought my second birth story would be),” she said. She initially wanted to opt for a VBAC (vaginal birth after C-section), but her doctor advised against this.

“But with these two (+ the rest of my fam) by my side through everything, it was easier to trust that everything will be alright. True enough, birth is beautiful no matter how it happens. I couldn’t be any more grateful that our baby girl came out healthy and safe.”

Eigenmann and Alipayo, a champion surfer, plan to raise their daughter in Siargao, where they are building a home and a bed-and-breakfast.  /ra
