PEP.ph was able to talk to Ogie on November 9. During the interview, he revealed that he was not expecting Regine to give birth yet, but when she said she had to stay overnight at the hospital, he knew that was it. "Then her OB-Gyne said na i-CS [caesarean section] na para makaiwas na rin for any complications."
Ogie was present throughout the delivery. "Nandoon ako, nagpi-picture, nagvi-video. (I was there taking photos and videos.)" As for the baby, he said, "Naku, napakapogi ng bata! Maputi. Sa tingin ko, ang kamukha, ang mommy, si Regine! (Oh, the baby is so handsome! Fair. I think he looks like his mommy, Regine!)"

As of press time, no photos of the baby have been released to the public. In the meantime, Ogie expressed how touched he was upon seeing his mother and son bonding in a Tweet earlier today. "Truly moving to see a baby bond with mother through breastfeeding," he posted. "Priceless."
Ogie on Baby Nate: 'Guwapo!'Though he couldn't really tell if his baby, Nathaniel James, resembles him or his wife Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcasid proudly described his first son as good-looking.
"Talagang I was so happy and so pleasantly surprised na o, ang guwapo ng anak namin. Siyempre baby 'yan eh, paglabas, titingnan mo, aba talagang wow, mistisuhin, maputi. I think he has Regine's fine features, but I think he has my head," the actor-composer laughingly told "24 Oras" in an interview aired Nov. 9.
The veteran Kapuso said Regine's birthing via caesarean section on Nov. 8 was unexpected since she was only supposed to have a check-up. However, her doctor had told her to stay as her water had already lessened.
Still, Ogie knew "for a fact na malapit na 'to. Pero hindi ko naman inaasahan na 'yung gabing 'yun din."
"So nasa set ako ng 'Daldalita' sabi niya, 'Hon, ooperahan na ko.' Sabi ko, 'Ha?!' So siyempre, I was trying to be in control and okay, compose myself. But you can never be composed. Alam 'to ng mga tatay," he recalled, chuckling.
He rushed to the hospital, making it there on time to still be able to document the moment Baby Nate came out. Ogie likewise enthused that Regine's operation went smoothly.
"I could see real happiness, excitement and deep joy sa mukha ng asawa ko. Priceless 'yon, 'yung unang tinginan nila, nakunan ko 'yon," he added.
The showbiz power couple will share photos of Baby Nate when the right time comes, added the "Unang Hirit" report, even as Ogie and Regine request for understanding from their supporters for keeping the pictures private for now.
"Kukunsultahin ko muna and aking boss. Pag may go signal na kay boss, sige, siyempre pipiliin pa niya 'yon, ‘di ba?" said Ogie, with "boss" apparently pertaining to Regine.
In his Twitter, Ogie shared some more precious moments recently with whom he calls his "wifey" and their Baby Nate.
"Got hungry after baby ante's (sic) last breastfeed:) haha, I meant after the baby fed, ako naman nagutom."
"Truly moving to see a baby bond with mother through breastfeeding. Priceless," read his tweets on Nov. 10.
