Regine Velasquez gives birth to baby boy Nathaniel James


Kapuso star and Asia’s ‘Songbird’ Regine Velasquez gave birth to a baby boy Tuesday evening, her husband Ogie Alcasid announced via his Twitter account. Alcasid said in a tweet that their son, whom they have named Nathaniel James, was born 7:47 p.m. He also expressed his thanks to all for their prayers. The couple had expected the due date to fall on or about November 22 yet. They settled on the baby's name last month but got to thinking about it first last July. "Nathaniel kasi means gift of God, yung naisip naming nickname is ‘Nate,’ parang ang pogi noh," Ogie told Aubrey Carampel during the Chika Minute segment of GMA News' 24 Oras on October 27. "Napili namin yung Nathaniel kasi parang bagay na bagay," Ogie said last July at the press launch for the OPM Summit. "Mayamang pakinggan ang pangalan, di ba? Sosyal na sosyal. At gusto naming nickname niya ay Nate. Para lang siyang isa sa characters ng Gossip Girl! Kaya kapag tinawag namin siya, 'Nate!' Uy, ang sosyal!" Ogie had explained. "Yung James naman, matagal na naming gusto ni Reg ang pangalan na James. Biblical name kasi ang James at match siya sa Nathaniel. Kaya sosyal na, magiging malapit pa sa Diyos ang anak namin," Ogie said. — ELR, GMA News
