Pepe Herrera, wife welcome their first child

Actor Pepe Herrera took to social media that he and his wife, Sarah Mallari, have finally welcomed their first child. 

“Nakakakilig, nakakaiyak, nakakagana, nakakagaan,” he wrote as he shared his baby girl’s first photo.

“Today, in my eyes, the World is a better place. Salute to all Mothers who gave birth, who are giving birth, and who are about to give birth to little angels. Salute to all Fathers. We have a very important job. I can see that now. Let us help each other,” he added. 

The 33-year-old artist first revealed that they are expecting a child last March 19. In an Instagram post, he shared his baby’s sonogram.

“Si Baby Girl, ang sarap ng tulog. Nakanganga pa. Ang sarap pagmasdan. So Peaceful. Yan tuloy naimagine ko na kinakausap niya ako,” he wrote. 

Days before the birth of his baby girl, he honored his partner for bringing the best in him. 

“I want to honor my soulmate who will birth to our daughter possibly tomorrow or Sunday,” he wrote along with a photo of him and Sarah.

I want to honor my soulmate who will give birth to our daughter possibly tomorrow or Sunday. Gusto sana namin ngayong araw para sakto sa pangalan niya. Hindi yata gusto ni Baby Pay sumabay sa Holiday. I chose this picture because she looks so beautiful with her squinting almost disappearing eyes when she smiles. The picture also reminds me of how we find the term “best couple” ridiculous. Nakakatawa para sa akin ang mga ganitong term. Tulad ng “GOAT” or “Best among the Rest”. I also imagine God laughing. I only believe in being and becoming the best version of myself. And I believe that Sam is the best life partner for me. Because she does, indeed, without a doubt, bring out the best in me. Looking back, it was a very very rough road. Ang daming naging pagsubok. Ngayong buwan lang nagsimulang kumalma ang Mundo namin. For me, this month was the shift. Suddenly, it became easier to listen to each other. It became easier to focus on important similarities and precious differences. It became easier to focus on solutions while regulating (not suppressing) emotions and impulses. Trying to be a better person each day became easier. For ourselves and for our daughter. Not easy. Easier. And I want to give most of the credit to the woman beside me. She is an inspiration. Her patience, her strength, her capacity to understand, and her capacity to love with courage and honesty. I got liberated from a lot of childish tendencies because of these qualities. I learn a lot from her actions. I feel like a lot of people can learn from her actions also. And today, I am very grateful. Happy Independence Day Everyone.💚
