MANILA -- Actress Rica Peralejo and her husband, Christian pastor Joseph Bonifacio, welcomed their first baby on Friday afternoon.

Bonifacio shared the news via a series of posts on his Facebook and Instagram pages, with the first photo of baby Philip Nathaniel uploaded at around 3:55 p.m.

"Welcome Philip Bo, Tata can't express how he feels right now, other than, I love you so much even though you have done nothing and a hundred other thoughts that are all just good," Bonifacio said in the accompanying caption on one of the photos.

"You are God's gift to us," he said in another post. "Way to go [Peralejo] for carrying him all this time!"

According to Bonifacio, his son was born 7 pounds and 11 ounces.

Peralejo and Bonifacio were married in 2010.
