Cristine Reyes has given birth to a premature baby girl last Sunday, February 8. The actress didn't announce it immediately instead, she posted a photo of her and her live in partner Ali Khatibi during their dinner last Tuesday.
Five days later, Cristine posted a photo of her baby on her Instagram account @queencristinereyes with a lengthy message on how she tried to keep the baby inside her for two weeks until she gave birth to her earlier as expected.
We are re-posting her Instagram post below:
February 8th, Sunday our Amarah finally came to see it. She really was such
a wonderful blessing.
I Fought for 2 weeks to hold her in. I've been put on total bed rest and wasn't able to sit, move and stand. Was on Heavy medication on my birthday and spent the day knocked out. I was Monitored every two hours for awhile.
I was In and out of the delivery room. But then, time has come that Amarah wanted to see the world, in which, none can control.
That feeling of love was instantaneously.
However, she came a little too early than expected and now in need of critical care and assistance. It's hard to see her handled by different people in the NICU. I just hope and pray that she's well taken cared for. I
realized that no one can't beat the loving and tender care of a mother. Just got a little apprehensive when I learned that there was a one person visitor policy. It breaks my heart at the time when Ali and I have to leave the hospital without her in our arms. It's sad but we have to be strong. We've been fighting for our little angel and now she has to fight this alone.
If it were in my hands, I'd love for my daughter to reach full term. I did everything to make sure that she was healthy - I read books, seek advice from my in-laws, family, friends and professionals to make sure all was
I just don't think it's fair when people judge me and saying that it was my fault. I plan to disregard NEGATIVITY in my life. My only priority right now is our little fighter. I actually don't really need to explain myself. Our baby is getting stronger everyday and we will be with her throughout the fight. She's our wonderful blessing. She will win this battle like a champ just like her father. My family and friends will be praying for our Amarah.
Her Dad and I loves her so much!
