October 23, 2020 was a happy day for the de Rossi-Ledesma family. After nearly 20 years of waiting, Assunta de Rossi is finally a mother!
Assunta, 37 and husband Jules Ledesma, 59, welcomed their daughter Fiore that Friday morning.
The actress gave birth via elective C-section at Cardinal Santos Medical Center in San Juan City.
Assunta's sister Alessandra posted our first look of the mother and daughter moments after the delivery.
"This is the most beautiful photo for life! Little Fiore and tears of joy in my sister's eyes," Alessandra captioned her post.
"Almost 20 years in the making! Miracles happen every day, and this one is the best!"
Alessandra then tagged their mother Nenita Schiavone: "Congratulations @assuntaledesma @julesledesma and of course to the new granny na mas oa pa sa naganak, @ermatsko [three laughing emoji]"
Mommy Nenita didn't deny the rush of emotions. She told Alessandra in the comment section: "Naiyak ako, sobra! Bakit di moko kinunan?"
Alessandra playfully answered back, "kasi agaw eksena ka kanina sa pagkaOA. Muntik na kitang i-block Kahit nanay kita. [laughing emoji]"
In her own post, Mommy Nenita was thrilled to finally be a lola. Just like Assunta, she waited patiently for this moment.
Her caption read: "Our bundle of joy [pink ribbon emoji] To hug and to hold from this day onward.... [three rainbow emoji]
"Meet Giulia Fiorentina Alessandra Schiavone Ledesma Nickname: Fiore. Lola nako [three heart-shaped eyes emoji]
"Thank you Lord for this wonderful gift of life! Thank you @julesledesma for loving this beautiful #neomamma and to you Fiore, welcome to our world!!!
Alessandra then left a reply, suggesting a nickname for the new grandmother.
The actress quipped, "Awwwwwwwwwww grammy ang tatawag nya sayo. Granny mimi! Because you deserve an award!"
