Dominique Cojuangco gives birth to first child: 'It’s been a week of bliss'

Dominique Cojuangco has been in a "week of bliss" as she announced that she has given birth to her first child with her husband, Michael Hearn.

The socialite and entrepreneur delighted her Instagram followers when she gave them a glimpse of her baby girl, who she named Penelope Eloise.

"Five two-hour lipid IV drips and two-hundred and forty-two Heparin injections, but I’ve enjoyed every minute of my pregnancy," Dominique wrote in the caption.

"Michael and I are delighted to welcome our little wiggler from inside my womb. Thank you, Lord," she added.

Dominique, who is Gretchen Barretto and Tony Boy Cojuangco's only child, first announced that she was pregnant back in November 2023 when she posted an Instagram reel with her husband holding her tummy.

In her maternity shoot, the new mom stunned as she donned a white sheer tulle gown with a huge bow in front by Vania Romoff. She was glammed by makeup artist Miz Raffy and hairstylist Mark Anthony Rosales.

Dominique and Michael got engaged in 2021 before they tied the knot in a lavish wedding on March 4, 2023 at the San Agustin Church in Manila, which was followed by a reception at the National Museum of Natural History.

In an interview with Metro.Style, Dominique said that they are both looking forward to the future as a married couple.

"We are both excited for what the future holds一being closer to God, building a home, having children (later on!) and nurturing them, and celebrating life with our family and friends,” she said.
