BERNARD Palanca becomes a father for the second time after his girlfriend Jerika Ejercito gave birth to a healthy baby boy on Wednesday.
The actor posted a photo of his son named Isaiah Joseph Ejercito-Palanca on image-sharing application, Instagram.
He wrote: "The new addition to my family! Happy father! Happy partner! I am truly blessed with the best things in life!
Isaiah Joseph is the actor's first son with girlfriend Jerika, daughter of former President and now Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada and former actress Laarni Enriquez.
Among the first well wishers of the couple was Jerika's younger brother and Andi Eigenmann's rumored flame, Jake Ejercito.
He shared on Twitter: "The big sis @JerikaEjercito is now in the hospital and is about to poop out her firstborn. Please cross your fingers with us for a safe delivery!"
Jake shared his first photo with his nephew on Instagram.
Isaiah Joseph is the second child of Palanca. He also has a six-year-old son named Elijah with his estranged wife Meryll Soriano.
Palanca and Soriano separated in February 2007 after one year of marriage. (Sunnex)
