Netizens were quick to notice that the name of Pokwang's baby is similar to the name of the lead character of the ABS-CBN primetime series "La Luna Sangre."

Malia, played by Kathryn Bernardo, possesses special skills for being the daughter of a werewolf (Angel Locsin) and a vampire (John Lloyd Cruz).

"Winner ang name! Itinakda!" one commented, referring to the name of Pokwang's baby.

"Kung anak mo si Malia, edi ikaw si Lia!" another fan added, tagging the Instagram account of Locsin.

"Idol na idol mo siguro ang 'La Luna Sangre,' mamang," a netizen wrote.

It was last June when Pokwang, 44, confirmed that she is pregnant.

In a previous interview with ABS-CBN News, O'Brian shared that Pokwang is expected to give birth in February next year.

Pokwang first confirmed her relationship with O'Brian in January 2015. The two met while working on the TFC movie "Edsa Woolworth."

The actress already has a daughter with a former partner who is based in Japan.
