Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte gave birth to a healthy baby boy.
The eldest child of President Rodrigo Duterte gave birth to a healthy baby boy weighing 2.42 kilos or 5.3 pounds. She delivered via cesarean section on Thursday at 12:56 PM according to Davao City Information Office.
Her husband, Atty. Manases “Mans” R. Carpio, shared their first photo with the baby immediately after he was out. He will be named Stonefish.
“Thank you, Lord, for the gift of life,” said Atty. Carpio in a statement.
He added that his wife is “stable” and “generally fine” after the delivery.
Duterte’s pregnancy made headlines in August 2016 for being multifetal. She was pregnant with triplets, but unfortunately lost the twins a month after.
The couple is fond of naming their children, oddly, after fishes. They have two more children, Sharky (the eldest daughter) and Mateo Lucas who is nicknamed “Stingray”.
