YES! (Philippines) - - Hello! -

BIRTH­DAY: Jan­uary 18, 2018 PAR­ENTS: Ma­ri­etta Subong (aka Pok­wang) & Lee O’Brian On the day of Malia Francine’s birth­day, her proud dad, Amer­i­can ac­tor Lee O’Brian, took to In­sta­gram to an­nounce to the world that his first-born with his part­ner Pok­wang had fi­nally ar­rived. Lee’s IG mes­sage went: “This morn­ing at 8:28 am Manila time, the most beau­ti­ful lit­tle an­gel came into our world, our Baby Malia!!

“Ma­mang @it­spok­wang27 is re­cov­er­ing well and are @mae­sub­ong is fired up to get the Older Sis­ter du­ties go­ing on...We love you, Malia!!”

The mes­sage came with the hash­tags #May­roonBabyObrian #Pok­wang #LeeOBrian #BabyMalia #9Month­sDown #OurAn­gel.

Pok­wang met Malia’s dad on the set of her 2014 movie Edsa Wool­worth, pro­duced by The Filipino Chan­nel (TFC). Shot in the Bay Area in San Fran­cisco, Cal­i­for­nia, the dra­ma­com­edy in­cluded Amer­i­can ac­tors, and Lee was one of them.

Lee pur­sued Pok­wang in Manila, and by Jan­uary of 2015, they were a cou­ple. That same year, Pok­wang suf­fered a mis­car­riage with her and Lee’s first baby. In early 2017, Pok­wang went on the fam­ily way again, and that was when she took time off from work to make sure she would have a healthy preg­nancy.

In Oc­to­ber 2017, the cou­ple an­nounced they were ex­pect­ing a baby girl whom they would lov­ingly call Malia Francine. Soon af­ter giv­ing birth, Pok­wang (here with the loves of her life: el­der daugh­ter Mae Subong, part­ner Lee O’Brian, and baby Malia) took to In­sta­gram and wrote: “Good­morn­ing... from Malia the daddy’s girl…sa la­hat po ng nag­dasal na mag­ing safe ang pagluwal ko kay baby Malia maram­ing sala­mat po.... happy kami so­bra @leeobrian at si ate @mae­sub­ong maram­ing sala­mat po.”

Fans, by the way, as­sumed that Pok­wang named her daugh­ter af­ter Kathryn Bernardo’s char­ac­ter Malia, the proph­e­sized sav­ior of the wolf­vam­pire race in the hit TV se­ries La Luna San­gre.
