Actress and singer Jolina Magdangal and her husband, musician Mark Escueta, said hello to Vika Anaya late Monday night after she delivered her via C section. Vika joins her older brother, four-year-old Pele, as the newest addition to this family of four.

"Andito na sya!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" announced the 39-year-old mom in her Instagram post showing off her new baby to her fans for the very first time. In the post, Jolina even looked like she lent her baby her signature accessory: a metallic butterfly clip! She continued the photo's caption by sharing that all her pregnancy pains were worth it, especially when she saw how her son reacted to meeting his little sister for the first time.

In an article posted on Star Cinema's website, Jolina shared the reason why they named their baby girl Vika Anaya: “Ang Vika ay galing sa Indian name na Jivika pero ang kinuha lang namin ay 'yung Vika. Ang ibig sabihin ng Vika ay ‘source of life.’ Tapos 'yung Anaya naman ay Hebrew name na ang ibig sabihin ay ‘God answers.’ Bagay na bagay talaga dahil lahat ng prayers namin ay nasagot.”

With her growing excitement, the Magandang Buhay host shared how she couldn't wait until she could dress Vika up. Likewise, Mark has been just as eager to get to know Vika better in the coming days. He posted the same photo of her and called her their princess while thanking those who prayed for his family throughout this journey.

Coming to terms with the fact that she is now a mom of two, Jolina also dedicated an Instagram post to her son which she shared before her delivery date. In her caption, she told Pele that she would recover from giving birth as quickly as possible so she could continue being an attentive and active mom to him. More so, Jolina promised that even though he now has a sibling, she'll still find time for them to be together and share hugs.
