WATCH: Patrick Garcia, wife Nikka Martinez reveal they’re expecting baby boy
Patrick Garcia and his wife, Nikka Martinez, are finally having a baby boy, they disclosed to the public via a vlog on their gender-reveal celebration.
The two shared the good news on their YouTube channel, called Garcia Family, yesterday, Feb. 26. Being the parents of three daughters, the baby will be Garcia and Martinez’s first son.
In the video, the couple asks family and friends whether they are “Team Boy” or “Team Girl” before finally revealing the baby’s sex.
They also shared that Martinez had a Non-Invasive Prenatal Test (NIPT) to identify their child’s sex. However, they never read the results prior to the reveal as they wanted to be surprised at the same time with family and friends.
Before the big announcement, Garcia shares that he does not really care if it is a boy or a girl, noting, “Basta bigay ni Lord (As long as it is given by the Lord), I’ll be super happy.”
“Ako naman, I’ll be honest. Siyempre, I am praying for a healthy baby na boy (For me, I’ll be honest. Of course, I am praying for a healthy baby boy), ” Martinez, for her part, said.
“Pero kahit anong ibigay ni Lord (But whatever the Lord gives), of course, we are going to be over the moon about it,” she added.
As the two have already produced three girls, family and friends became visibly ecstatic and exclaimed in celebration after Garcia shouted “male!” as he read the NIPT test result.
“Sobra-sobrang good ng Panginoon, and this is so personal to me kasi parang grinant Niya talaga yung desire ng heart ko,” the doting mother emphasized after the reveal.
(God is really, really good, and this is so personal to me because it is like He granted what my heart truly desires.)
“So, I just continue to pray that we continue to be good stewards, good parents who will raise these children up to learn to love God — to love God with all of their hearts, you know, ‘coz He really is super real,” she added. /ra
