At 7:14 a.m., Villania said through a short video, “I’m done! Finished!”

“Delivery is hard. Thank you Lord for getting me thru that once again,” Villania later wrote.

A few hours more Villania, inside her recovery room and with her husband, admitted she was still in disbelief that their newborn is a girl.

“I was so sure it’s a boy because in one of the ultrasounds, I thought I saw balls,” she laughingly recalled.

Turning to Arellano, Villania said, “You got a girl love, you got your princess!”

The couple first announced they were expecting baby No. 3 on January 31 but decided to keep the gender a surprise until Villania’s delivery.

Married for six years now, TV hosts Villania and Arellano, share two sons – Primo, 4 and Leon, 2.
