“Today, in my eyes, the [w]orld is a better place,” he added.
Herrera then saluted all the mothers who gave birth or who are about to give birth amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. He acknowledged the fathers welcoming newborns as well.
Addressing other fathers, the actor said, “We have a very important job. I can see that now. Let us help each other.”
The actor revealed that he and Mallari were expecting a baby girl last March. At the time, Herrera said that their child was encouraging him to help more and return to singing.
