Ogie Alcasid hopes that he and Regine Velasquez will have a baby boy


051411-ogie-main.jpgDuring the May 12 episode of Showbiz News Ngayon (SNN), singer-songwriter Ogie Alcasid shared some updates on the pregnancy of his wife Regine Velasquez. The two were wed in a picturesque beach ceremony in Nasugbu, Batangas last December.

Ogie said that everything is going well with Regine’s pregnancy. “Tapos na siya sa paglilihi. Almost finished na siya sa first trimester so medyo nagpapahinga-pahinga na lang siya,” he shared with the popular showbiz program. The 43-year-old singer also told SNN that he is hoping to finally have a baby boy. Ogie has two daughters with former beauty queen Michelle Van Eimeren, who has gotten remarried and is now based in Australia. “Maganda kung lalake kasi hindi pa ako nagkakaanak ng lalake. Pero siyempre kung anong ibigay ng Panginoon yun na. Yun ang tatanggapin namin. Wala naman preference si Regine,” he added.

Although the chances are unlikely, Ogie said he would also be happy if ever Regine would give birth to twins. “Maganda din. Maganda diin yun. Pero parang wala namang sign na kambal eh. Sige, do-doble-hin natin, ita-times two natin (laughs),” he joked. Although he has been busy with activities as the president of OPM or Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit as well as other showbiz commitments, Ogie said he is looking forward to welcoming the newest addition to the Alcasid family by October or Mid-November at the latest. The couple recently announced that Regine will be taking a leave of absence from showbiz to focus on her pregnancy and Ogie says that they have been able to utilize this time to also bond more as a couple away from the cameras. “Okay naman si Regine. Our baby and Regine are very safe and very healthy. Salamat sa Panginoon. Masaya kami sa bahay. Ang dami naming napapanuod na DVDs. Mas nagkakaroon kami ng bonding,” he shared.

Because of her hiatus from showbiz, Ogie said that Regine finally has more time for domestic duties like cooking for her husband. “Nagpapahinga siya sa bahay. Pero ngayon medyo nakakapagluto na siya so ako ngayon yung tumataba (laughs),” he joked.
