BABY ADALYNN RILEY
BIRTHDAY: January 19, 2018 PARENTS: Alyanna Martinez & Roy Macam Roy Macam, one of YES! Magazines’s favorite photographers, married Alyanna, the eldest daughter of actor Albert Martinez and the late Liezl Martinez, twice in the U.S. The first time was in a civil ceremony in San Francisco, California, on August 25, 2016. The second time, themed as a winter wedding, was held at The Ridge in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, on December 13, 2016. The Macams now reside in the Bay Area in San Francisco. Baby Adalynn Riley is possibly the first Pinoy celebrity baby who was born through water birth. That’s defined by yourdictionary. com as a form of childbirth “in which the mother is supported in a birthing pool so that the child is delivered into the warm water.”
The baby’s father, photographer Roy Macam, who was present throughout the whole process, describes the first-time dad experience as simply magical.
In his January 19 post on Instagram, Roy wrote:
“My daughter Adalynn’s birth has been the most powerful and magical experience that I have ever had the privilege to witness in my entire life. Seeing my wife go through Adalyn’s mom, Alyanna Martinez, here seen after childbirth, describes the whole experience on IG as “My All-Natural 100% Completely Unmedicated Birth Center Water Birth Baby.” the whole birthing process completely unmedicated with nothing you can do physically to help her but wish to take her place instead was excruciating to watch. All I had to offer was my complete support and reassuring words and remind her that this is what we wanted and prepared so hard for and that we will meet our beautiful baby soon.
“This event was truly a remarkable and wonderful journey, being a part of the birth and catching my daughter with my own hands is a moment you can’t put into words but just have to experience yourself. This is the beginning of Adalynn’s story. #AdalynnRiley #RoyAlBaby2018.”
