Korina Sanchez And Mar Roxas Are Officially Parents To Fraternal Twins
As ABS-CBN's host for primetime show Rated K, Korina Sanchez often reports about life's many miracles, big and small. But on Thursday, the 54-year-old announced a miracle of her own, and it's certainly worthy of headlines for days to come; she has become a mother, and not just to one child—she's now a proud mom of fraternal twins!
The big announcement was made over Instagram, much to the delight of her followers.
Though not exactly a surprise to those who have been quick to pick up on clues Korina has left behind in the last few days, the confirmation of her children's arrival was celebrated by all.
In case you missed it, rumors of Korina's upcoming motherhood began circulating when she posted a surprising photo of her in a baby boutique holding onto stuffed animals in pink and blue earlier this week, appearing to suggest that babies were on the way.
The first-time mom also previously stated that she would be doing some surprise traveling in the coming days, specifically to Pennsylvania, a plan that coincided with her husband and senatorial candidate Mar Roxas' decision to take a campaign break.
The couple, who got married in 2009, has always been vocal about wanting children of their own and have often cracked jokes about trying to "very hard" to conceive.
Today, almost a decade after becoming husband and wife, they can finally call themselves a mom and dad and couldn't be happier about the life-changing event. They've welcomed a baby boy and girl into their family, which we're sure they feel is finally complete.
Although Korina didn't give birth to her fraternal twins herself, she's definitely still very much their doting, loving, devoted mother. She has yet to reveal more details about her journey of motherhood and surrogacy, all of which we're looking forward to learning.
"I think if you believe hard enough, the miracle you most want can come true. Announcing the arrival of our little boy and little girl," she wrote on Instagram to accompany her photo of two sets of teeny tiny feet that belong to her little ones.
"We're thinking of names. Any suggestions? Jack and Jill? Sonny and Cher? MariKor and KoriMar? Daniel and Kathryn? Did you ever think it could still happen for me? I never stopped believing," she continued.

The fraternal twins are Korina's first children, and the second and third for Mar who has a 25-year-old son, Paolo, from a previous relationship with Maricar Zaldarriaga.
Congratulations to the glowing parents!
