This morning, Nikki Gil shared the very first photo of her and husband BJ Albert's first baby, a healthy baby boy, whom they named Finn. "Dear moms, I get it now... Hello my darling Finn," the new mom wrote as a caption for her son's photo. "I still can’t believe you’re mine. Thank You God for this beautiful gift," she added.
The Myx VJ and singer, who first announced her pregnancy in July, gave birth on November 20.
The new mom and husband BJ, as it turns out, are also celebrating their wedding anniversary today, November 21. "Also, happy second wedding anniversary to my co-producer @bjalbert," Nikki added. The two are technically celebrating their second year of marriage as new parents—literally!
Patty Laurel, Nikki's close friend who is also pregnant now, gave a shoutout to Nikki and BJ, with whom she and husband Patrick share the same wedding anniversary date. "I bet you are having the most memorable anniversary ever," the soon-to-be mom of two wrote.
Nikki and BJ had relatively kept the pregnant hush-hush. Rumors that she already had a bun in the oven started as early as March this year, and then again in May as people speculated Nikki was already on the family way as photos from a wedding she attended showed what could be a baby bump.
However, the VJ-singer only confirmed her pregnancy in July by sharing a group photo on Instagram as Nikki sported a clearly visible baby bump. Since then, the now new mom just posted a few snaps from an at-home maternity shoots and from birthday parties and baby shower events.
Nikki and BJ also attended seminars on childcare in preparation for the coming of their baby boy.The gender she announced through a "mini @bjalbert shoes" post in October. Based on her posts, it was clear that she was already in the last stretch of pregnancy.
And now their baby boy Finn is finally here! Congratulations Nikki and BJ!
