In the vlog, both admitted they had their own preferences. Jessy wanted a boy while Luis wanted a girl. Regardless of gender, Luis said that the health of the baby whom they call Peanut was more important.

“The priority has always been for Peanut to be healthy regardless of the gender,” he said. “Mommy and I will do our best to raise you, for you to be a blessing to other people.”
