September of last year, Rufa Mae Quinto announced that she was expecting her first child with then boyfriend, Trevor Magallanes.
The couple later tied the knot November of the same year at Blue Leaf Cosmopolitan, Quezon City. On February 17, the two announced that they welcomed a healthy baby girl named, Alexandria Athena.
"I'm not going to lie, I feel a little dizzy after seeing you come to life. Mabuhay anak, welcome to what is known as life. Enjoy it and I hope you live it by your mother's famous words 'Todo na 'to!'" the new father wrote on a social media post.
Moreover, the couple has been sharing adorable photos of their cute baby girl online.
The baby weighed 8.13lbs when she was born. She has both her mother and father’s features on her charming little face.
Rufa Mae breastfeeds Alexandria, but there are times when she runs out of milk. Thankfully, her friend, Mariel Rodriguez, is ready to help her. Rodriguez is also a new mom and has milk which she could share to Alexandria.
The comedienne described her baby as calm, healthy, and strong. She also thanked everyone who supported them as she was recovering from giving birth.
Quinto repeatedly expressed her gratitude and love to her daughter who has brought her much happiness. She also appears to be a very happy baby.
However, the comedienne admitted that she was suffering from post-partum depression. She had been working out to shed off weight and to bring back her confidence.
"Slowly regaining all my hormones and confidence para sa anak ko. I want her to see me okay so I can take care of her," she said.
Meanwhile, the couple got to know each other in San Francisco where Rufa Mae took a vacation. Less than a year in their relationship, the comedienne got pregnant with their baby and they decided to finally settle down.
