Liz Uy welcomed her second child with husband Raymond Racaza, the celebrity stylist confirmed in an Instagram post.
Sharing a photo of her baby, Liz simply wrote on her Instagram post: “Meet our Matias.”
Several of the couple’s closest friends extended their congratulations as they mark a new milestone in their married life.
Liz gave birth to her first child with Raymond — whom they named Xavi — back in 2018.
It was in December 2020 when Liz simultaneouly announced her marriage to Raymond and her second pregnancy.
“We were closing in on the fourth month of an endless lockdown when I found out that I was pregnant with our second baby. I ran to Raymond and we were both screaming in delight,” she wrote in a piece for The Philippine Star.
Just like her first pregnancy, Liz said she also suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum or “extreme, persistent vomiting and nausea.”
“The biggest irony of getting sick with Hyperemesis Gravidarum once again is that it reminded me of how I felt seeing Xavi for the very first time. It made up for all that I had to go through to have him. Xavi is pure happiness and nothing, absolutely nothing, can equal what having him in my arms brought,” she stated.
According to Liz, pilates — together with the the motivation of her family — helped her overcome this.
“Since then, I have slowly gotten back to working out. I discovered that Pilates is good for me. I’ve been easing back into work as well, overseeing my team at Stylized Studio and Mood. I started talking to friends and family again. I spend more time with my boys, Xavi and Raymond.”
