Ever since she bared her baby bump to the public, Tricia Centenera has been busy preparing for motherhood. Well, the long wait is over. Her baby girl has arrived.

"Thank you, Jesus, for this beautiful, bundle of joy! She's a cutie pie," the owner of Talulla scrubs wrote on her birth announcement post on Instagram. Tricia gave birth to Baby Arrow yesterday, November 21.


"Hello, Arabella 'Arrow' Centenera Santos," she added. She first disclosed the name that she and her partner Duane Santos had chosen when she posted a photo of the new dad carrying their newborn daughter on Instagram Stories.

It was on July 1 when Tricia announced on Instagram that she is expecting her first child, a daughter. By then, the pretty preggo has already had her first baby shower, which was attended by family and close friends.


When she hit her 36th month of pregnancy, Tricia admitted to not having an easy time adjusting to her pregnant body, but encouraged moms-to-be to focus on the positive just the same.

The TV host and former VJ also told the men: "Make your partner feel the sexiest she's ever felt, EVER! Don't fail her, she needs to feel your love!" she stressed.

About a week ago, everything fell into place for Tricia as her mom arrived from Australia to be with her and guide her in raising her daughter.

"Half of who I am is her. She raised me. Now she's here to guide me again through this next chapter in my life. To help me become a strong, kind and wise mother myself. To help me raise my daughter."

"So I suppose it really is true.. that a Mother's job is never really done no matter what age your children," Tricia added.
