MANILA - Kapamilya stars Melai Cantiveros and Jason Francisco have finally decided on a name for their baby daughter.

On Saturday afternoon, Francisco posted a photo on his Instagram account of their daughter and her name Amelia Lucille with the caption, "Yes, may identity na ako! Thanks daddy & mommy! I love you po."

During an episode of "Aquino & Abunda," host Boy Abunda revealed that Francisco told him that the couple had difficulty with the name because the two didn't want to decide until after the baby was born.

"Nagbibiruan kami, sabi ko ang suggestion ko gawin nilang palayaw, initals ay P.B.B, Paula Bernadette Bianca," he quipped.

For her part, co-host Kris Aquino said that she will be happy to become the child's godmother, referring to a text message sent by the couple that said, "Ninang. Char."

"Sabi ko, wag ng char, I'll gladly be your child's godmother," she said.

Cantiveros and Francisco got married on December 2013, three months after they confirmed expecting their first child. On April 3, Cantiveros gave birth at St. Elizabeth Hospital in General Santos City at around 8 p.m.
