“…that’s [sic] the only gift I [sic] can give to my daughter na hindi kayang ibigay ng iba (It’s the only gift I can give my daughter that nobody else can)…” she added.

Despite the hardship, she remained strong. She thanked her husband for being there, even though she gets moody most of the time.
Nadine gave birth at Manila Doctors Hospital. Richard’s mother Isabel Rivas was also present during the delivery as she is also excited to become a first-time grandmother.
Nadine and Richard were married on October 30, 2013, at a farm owned by Isabel in Zambales. -Kami Media
