You Have To See Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla's Cute Gender Reveal Party!

In the style of gender reveal events that have taken over the mommy-centric corner of social media as of late, trendy mom Mariel Rodriguez Padilla threw a party just like it and didn't disappoint!

The TV personality and actress brought her friends and family to The Bellevue Manila on June 30 to celebrate the much-awaited announcement of her second baby's gender, breaking the news in the cutest way. 

Together with her husband, action star Robin Padilla, and their first daughter, two-year-old Isabella, Mariel stood on one side of a giant basket holding long, flowy strips of thick ribbon in pink and blue. Building tension in their audience, Mariel and Robin teased at pulling the ribbons for the big reveal, and finally, after a few more words, pulled at them with full force for flowers in a rich shade of pink to peak over the basket's edge.

Everyone watching the spectacle unfold responded with cheers and clapping as soon as they realized that a second baby girl was on her way to join Mariel's growing family. A few guests were also filmed sharing their reactions and well-wishes for the couple who got to enjoy their day and the company of close friends and family. 

Best of all, the party was also where Robin himself learned of his baby's gender! Mariel managed to keep it a secret from him all this time, making the event extra sweet.
