Four months after announcing their pregnancy, former It’s Showtime hosts and real-life sweethearts Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia recently delighted us when they shared on Instagram that they are now officially parents after giving birth to their much-awaited firstborn Amari.
In her Instagram stories, she related that her water broke while she and her husband were taking photos for IG and she eventually had to endure four hours of active labor (plus an extra hour just for the placenta!) just to successfully deliver their bouncing baby boy at exactly 6:33 am of September 10.
She revealed going through an unmedicated water birth at their home and thanked Billy for everything he did for her throughout the process.
“Thank you for the massages and for being the most supportive husband! I appreciate [you],” she wrote in one of her stories, wherein she also attached a candid shot of them together. Then she added, “For a while there, towards the end, I was really regretting the decision to skip the painkillers. But I'm so happy I did it this way. No tearing, thanks to the water! I loved the water.”
Looking at photos they posted on their respective accounts, the new parents apparently cannot contain the overwhelming happiness and love they feel right now as seen on how they lovingly gaze at Baby Amari and enthusiastically share snaps of him (or in Billy’s case, of his two beloved angels) attached with sweet and sappy captions.
“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,” Coleen wrote in the caption of a stolen shot of her while holding her baby on her chest.
On the other hand, Billy expressed his gratitude to God and Coleen for this life-changing milestone in their lives.
“These past few days have been the biggest life changing experience I’ve ever had in my entire life! First of all I can’t thank God enough for blessing me with my AMAZING wife. I will do anything for you my love. I’m so thankful for what you’ve done and sacrificed and continue to recover from. You are my Queen but I will always remember that God comes first and you’re next! Amari is beautiful gift we got from God. I love both of you so, so, so much,” she wrote on his post showing a picture of Coleen breastfeeding their cute bundle of joy.
