MANILA -- After asking netizens for prayers on Monday night, former "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate Wendy Valdez reported that her baby is now recovering after a successful surgery. 

Valdez's two-day-old baby underwent surgery after a cyst was seen developing on his spine. According to the "PBB" alumna, doctors said this might affect his bowel movement, and may even prevent him from walking. 

Doctors spotted the cyst formation while they were performing an ultrasound during Valdez' fourth month of pregnancy. 

Hours after the operation, Valdez shared a photo of herself with the baby. "I am finally able to hold my son," she wrote. "Soon makakauwi din tayo anak." 

Valdez finished third on the second season of "PBB."
