Celebrity couple Coleen Garcia and Billy Crawford welcome their first-born child, Amari, Thursday, September 10.
On Instagram, Coleen posted photos of moments during unmedicated water birth delivery with her husband Billy at her side.
“There’s so much I wanna say, but for now, I just want to praise God for being so so good. Thank you, Lord, for our beautiful Amari,” she wrote.
Moreover, Coleen shared on her IG Stories that her water already broke during a photoshoot inside their home. The former It’s Showtime host revealed that she went active labor for about four hours, and an extra hour for the placenta. Baby Amari was born at 6:33 A.M., Thursday, September 10, 2020.
“For a while there, towards the end, I was really regretting the decision to skip pain killers lol but I’m so happy I did it this way. No tearing thanks to the water! I loved the water!”, Coleen wrote about choosing unmedicated water birth delivery.
Coleen thanked Billy for being the “most supportive husband.”
“I appreciate you”, she wrote.
Days before, the first-time mom trended online for her prenatal photoshoot with BJ Pascual for Preview PH Magazine.
Family, friends, and colleagues are happy with the successful birth of baby Amari. Greetings of congratulations flooded the couple’s Instagram accounts.
