Robin was not able to join his wife in the US in time for her maternity because he was not granted a visa. This was due to the conditional pardon granted to him by former President Fidel V. Ramos in 1998 after being in imprison for three years for the possession of illegal firearms.
In spite of this, Robin is very thankful for everyone who supported his wife.
“Ako’y nagpupugay at naglulumuhod sa lahat ng mga Pilipino sa buong mundo na nagdasal at nagsalmo para maging maayos ang kabanata na ito sa buhay ni @marieltpadilla at ni Maria Isabella de Padilla,” the actor added.
Mariel suffered two miscarriages last year before successfully conceiving a child.
