Dimples Romana has officially announced the name she has chosen for her new baby.

Dimples said that she came up with this name based on how she feels around her family, where warmth and love persists despite all the trials and challenges they face.

“Nung nag-iisip kami ng name for Baby E, I had prayed prayers for guidance and discernment in many of the aspects in my life. But one thing in my momma heart stuck and that was, even when we have been tested and challenged as a family, somehow everything around us still felt bright and sunny and warm,” she wrote on her post. “I guess when we feel we lack love and security the most, it is the love of a Father who overlooks our imperfections that comes shining through. And we feel that from all the love showered on us by our family and closest of friends. I’m glad we found friends for keeps.”
