Mariel Rodrigues got married to action star Robin Padilla on 19 August 2010. Mariel and her husband got married at the Taj Mahal in Agra, India.
Mariel gave birth to her daughter Isabella on 14 November 2016 in the United States. She was pregnant with her husband twice before she gave birth to her first baby. However, Isabella ended up becoming their first baby together as Mariel had to go through miscarriages in her past two pregnancies.
As a frustrated mother of three unborn babies (single and twins), Mariel flew to the United States to take extra care of herself. Her heading to the USA was successful with the birth of her daughter.
However, her husband couldn’t accompany her to the United States for her first ever birth experience as he was not given the American visa. The man had to struggle for the American visa as he was convicted for the possession of the illegal firearms in 1994.
Mariel's husband got the privilege of the live video display of his daughter’s birth. In the video, Robin was seen apologizing to his wife for not being with her during her pregnancy.
Despite all the complications, their daughter Isabella was born healthy, which was the real cause of the couple’s happiness.
Thus, as of now, in their social media posts, the couple is seen happier than ever with their daughter. They keep sharing the good moments and quality time they spend with their daughter in their social media accounts.
