Mariel Rodriguez and husband Robin Padilla have chosen the name Maria Gabriela for their second daughter.
Robin will then have Tres Marias because Mariel's real name is Maria Erlinda Lucille, while their firstborn is Maria Isabella.
The ABS-CBN host exclaimed, "I am Maria, Isabella is Maria, so parang perfect na three Marias kami. Siyempre Maria is like Mother Mary, so happy kasi Catholic ako."
The name Gabriela was Robin's suggestion.
Mariel revealed that Robin's mother, Mama Eva, is a descendant of the Filipina revolutionary leader Gabriela Silang.
"When I heard Gabriela, parang bagay siya sa Isabella," the celebrity mom said. "Right away nag-agree kami... Perfect."
Mariel and Robin first nicknamed their second daughter "Baby Surprise" because they didn't expect to have another bundle of joy so soon.
She said in her gender reveal vlog dated June 30, "In my head, I really wanted to give Isabella a sibling.
"Pero gusto ko sana, magta-try ako pag three years old and above na siya.
"Para ma-explain ko sa kanya nang mabuti na magkakaroon na siya ng kapatid.
"She is so selosa, so every day, feeling ko hindi pa siya ready.
"Pero maaga binigay ni God yung blessing kaya ang nickname ko for this baby is Baby Surprise."
It was in May 2019 when Mariel announced she was pregnant with her second child.
