Confirmed by ultrasound several weeks ago to be a boy, the firstborn of Ogie Alcasid and Regine Velasquez, named Nathaniel, weighed only 4.4 lbs. when he was delivered at 7:47 Tuesday night, Nov. 8, at an undisclosed hospital.
‘The baby was light because he wasn’t due to come out yet,’
‘However, Dr. Lilibeth Genuino decided to do a Caesarian Section because Reg’s amniotic fluid was low and her blood sugar was quite high due to gestational diabetes. Praise God but the baby is now really doing well. Signs are good and latching on to mom for breastfeeding so he can catch up with weight.’
Ogie said that he and Regine have decided to delay the release of Nathaniel’s photo until the baby has gained weight.
