The action star also witnessed in November via a video conference the moment his first child with Mariel Rodriguez was born. He shared a video on his Facebook page on November 15 wherein he was seen talking with wife Mariel when he suddenly blurted out, “Ayan lumabas na! Allah hu akbar Allah hu akbar !!!”; referring to their newborn.
Their daughter, named Maria Isabella, was born at 7:56 a.m. on November 14, 2016, and weighed 7.3 lbs. He said Mariel labored for 21 hours and had a normal delivery in a hospital in Delaware in the United States.

Baby Isabella is Mariel’s first child, while she is Robin’s seventh. The actor has six children with his previous relationships.
