Maricris Garcia just gave birth to her firstborn baby girl!
January 12, 2021, was a special day for Kapuso singer Maricris Garcia and her husband, TJ Cruz, as they both welcomed their daughter, Adaiah Denise Garcia Cruz!
On Tuesday evening, Maricris announced that she has successfully given birth to a healthy baby girl at exactly 8:14 a.m.
She said on Instagram, “01-12-21 at exactly 8:14 a.m. our daughter, Adaiah Denise Garcia Cruz, was born.
“No words could ever describe that overwhelming feeling the first time you hear your child cry.
“I still can’t believe I carried you inside me for 9 months! How can another human grow inside my body?!? How?!?”
Maricris concluded, “Life truly is a miracle and a gift from God. With Him, nothing is impossible.”
Last year, Maricris shares her thoughts about her pregnancy.
Maricris Garcia already knew all along: “We’re superwomen!”
“Before I got pregnant, I thought that it was going to be easy. But now that I am, I have realized how tough it actually is to be a woman. Some of the things we have to do—carrying the baby, giving birth, and eventually raising the child,” she said in a recent virtual conference.
The first trimester, in particular, was physically taxing for the GMA 7 talent.
“The morning sickness, nausea—I don’t want to experience those again. I would throw up what I ate during lunchtime. Even drinking water was difficult because I felt like my body was rejecting it,” she said.
“At first I had plans, things I wanted to do for myself. But I just couldn’t bring myself to do them, even if I have the time, because I get tired so easily,” she added.
And as if being a first-time mother wasn’t nerve-wracking enough, she has to go through the process amid a pandemic.
