The 40-year old television host and actress welcomed her third child at 7:20 a.m. on Wednesday.

This was announced by Perez herself in her official Twitter account.

Delivering via cesarean section, Perez named her third baby Isaiah Joaquin.

“Thanks so much for all ur loving congratulatory and ur prayers! Isaiah Joaquin was born today 720am via CS. Mwah love to u all,” she tweeted.

In her interview last July, Perez said she had to be more cautious with her third pregnancy given her age.

"Nagkaroon kami ng paguusap ng doctor, kasi ‘pag ganitong 21 [joke] and above na, medyo hirap na tayo sa katawan natin, so medyo kailangan mas maingat," she said.

Perez is in a relationship with news reporter Carlo Castillo, with whom she has a three-year-old child.

The former "Magandang Tanghali Bayan" host also has a child named Adi with former husband Brix Ferraris.
