Sen. Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III and his wife Kathryna Yu finally welcomed their first child on Sunday, March 29.
KAMI learned that the delivery of the baby came a week after Pimentel announced he tested positive for coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
In a report by the ABS-CBN News (authored by Katrina Domigo), Kathryna revealed that they named their baby after her. They named their first daughter Maria Kathryn Helena or Leyna.
"She's a miracle baby," Mrs. Pimentel said, according to ABS-CBN News.
As reported by the Rappler, the hospital where Kathryna gave birth was not disclosed, as well as her COVID-19 test result.
The delivery of Mrs. Pimentel was scheduled for March 25 at the Makati Medical Center (MMC). However, her cesarean operation had to be moved when her husband tested positive for COVID-19.
The doctors required Kathryna to undergo the COVID-19 test before she was allowed to give birth.
In a previous report by KAMI, Senator Pimentel aired his side about the controversy he got involved with when he exposed himself to health workers after he tested positive for COVID-19.
Koko Pimentel is currently serving at the Senate. From 2016 to 2018, he served as the 28th Senate President of the Philippines. He is also the current president of the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino–Lakas ng Bayan (PDP–Laban).
