Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano has taken to Instagram to post the sweetest message about the arrival of Baby Nataleia "Leia" Martine on Wednesday, November 2.
On his post, Gary V. has reminisced on the feeling of becoming a dad for the first time upon seeing his firstborn, Paolo, welcome his own child into the world.
According to the veteran actor-singer, "It's a day of many many firsts. My first born has his first child. First time to be welcomed into the world of grandparenthood. My first grandchild. First time to feel all that I mentioned earlier."
Gary V. also shared that while he no longer remembers how he had felt when he himself had welcomed his firstborn, director-singer Paolo V, being able to witness how his firstborn reacts to the arrival of his first child has been a joyful situation.
He ended the post by saying, "I'm beyond blessed to have witnessed the ushering in of a new soul into our family today. I will always love you Paolo and Sam...and Leia."
In yet another post, the singer-actor also shared a message of thanks for his granddaughter's "safe adventure into the world."

"I was 20yrs of age when I had my first son Paolo.
On Nov 2, 2016, at a little past 1am, Sam gave birth to their first born baby girl Leia.
Thank you everyone...it's such a different feeling.
Being more mature and a lot older today, I feel certain things I didn't feel when I was a lot younger. These are feelings and emotions that have registered in my heart for the very first time.
It's a day of many many firsts.
My first born has his first child. First time to be welcomed into the world of grandparenthood. My first grandchild. First time to feel all that I mentioned earlier.
But no matter what words I choose to express and describe the feeling of seeing my daughter-in-law waving her hands at us as she was being rolled in to the delivery room; my son putting on his scrubs to be with her for the procedure; to hear, in the quiet corridors of the delivery rooms, the cry of a child being welcomed into the world. To see nurses walking by with the hope that there's news for us to hear. The first time to see my son walk out of the delivery room with the nurse who handed Leia to him for him to carry...the thought of which still brings tears to my eyes; these are all just a few of the things that perhaps occurred when Pao was born but this time I'm with him to witness him react to arrival of his first.
In all honesty...there is a joy inexplicable as I replay the sequences of Nov 1...and 2. All I know is that it was ALL SOULS DAY...and I'm beyond blessed to have witnessed the ushering in of a new soul into our family today. I will always love you Paolo and Sam...and Leia."
As Baby Leia is welcomed into the world with thanks and awe, let us take some time to welcome yet another life, whose need for prayers surpasses all else.
