On June 27, Joel Cruz introduced his seventh son Zeid to his Instagram followers.

Meet Baby Zeid.
Joel left the Philippines on June 24, the day after he was notified through text message by his lawyer about the birth of his son.
“Dear Joel, My most sincere congratulations! You have just became father of a lovely boy!
"Both your son and the surrogate are OK.
“Please let us know the full name of your newborn son.
“Thank you for all your trust and concern in our team!
“God bless you and your growing family! Best personal regards.”
In his previous interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Joel related that Zeid was supposed to have a twin, but, "hindi kumapit yung isa at isa lang yung nabuo."
The baby boy is the only one among the children of Joel who does not have a twin.
Joel's first set of twins Prince Sean at Princess Synne were born on September 2, 2012; the second set, Prince Harry at Prince Harvey, was born on October 23, 2015; the third set, Charles and Charlotte, was born on May 24, 2017
All his kids have one mom, a tall Russian woman named Lilia, who also carried the first set of twins. Back then, Joel reportedly spent PHP7 million on the in-vitro fertilization and surrogacy.
Joel, the dad of all seven kids, plans to have another set of twins.
