24 Mar – It's another boy for Oyo Boy Sotto and Kristine Hermosa, who will be welcoming their fifth child this year.
The news was shared by the actor on social media on 24 March with an ultrasound photo of their unborn baby, writing, "It's a boy! Again! Hahahaha! Thank you Lord! We were really praying for a girl... but this is what the Lord gave."
"Whether female or male, we are more than grateful to God. He knows and controls everything. So how is that Lord? Does that mean there is more to come?" he added.
As for Hermosa, the actress expressed, "Always grateful for every blessing. For a healthy and normal baby boy. Even though Dre's baby girl prayer has not been answered, God has answered many of our prayers and even the things we didn't pray for. He always has His reasons and His perfect time. You are very kind, Lord."
"So Dre, continue praying and believing that one day God will answer your prayer," she added.
Dre in this case refers to the couple's sole daughter Ondrea, whom Hermosa said wanted to have a baby sister for a change after being a big sister to three brothers.
It is noted that Sotto and Hermosa, who announced the latest pregnancy last December, are already parents to four children- Kristian Daniel, Ondrea Bliss, Marvic Valentin and Kaleb Hanns. Kristian, called Kiel, is their adopted son, and he is the eldest in the family.
