Angelica Panganiban speaks out about Melai Cantiveros's pregnancy


091913-angelica-main.jpgAngelica Panganiban spoke out about the pregnancy of her close friend Melai Cantiveros. In an interview during a set visit to Banana Split, she relayed that she learned the news from Melai herself through a long distance call when she was in Singapore. “May good news daw siya, sabi niya ‘Twinny buntis ako, nagdadalang tao ako.’ Nung una naman niyang sinabi talaga namang natuwa ako, actually tawa ako ng tawa kasi akala ko talaga joke siya, kasi ‘di ba si Melai sobrang inosente, aliw lang,” Angelica revealed. She later on realized that Melai was actually telling the truth during the phone call.

Angelica said she recognizes the weight of Melai’s situation and admitted that she’s worried for her friend. “Pagbaba ko ng phone, naiyak talaga ako kasi don siya nag sink-in sa akin kasi parang kapatid ko ‘yun, pino-protektahan ko ‘yun over my dead body so nung nag sink-in siya para akong ‘Paano na si Melai?’ Parang siyempre kung ano ‘yung pangarap niya para sa pamilya niya, kung ano ‘yung mga gusto niyang itayong business, alam ko yun di ba?”

She said she was also very concerned if Melai could still pursue her goals now that the latter is becoming a mom. “Alam ko namang maitutuloy niya [‘yung mga plano niya] pero siyempre magkakaroon na siya ng ibang prayoridad, di ba talaga siyempre ang focus niya na don. Kung magtatrabaho siya ang kita niya nandun muna mapupunta [sa baby].”

Angelica admitted that she has her doubts if Jason Francisco, the father of the baby, is ready for fatherhood. “Sa akin naman kasi ang sinasabi ko sa kanya kaya naman ako’y nag-aalala talaga, sabi ko, ’Kasi ako nakita kita kung papaano ka nun nung naghiwalay kayo, kumbaga araw araw kang umiiyak, so nakita ko ‘yung pain, kung papaano siya nakapag move-on, so ngayon parang ngayon nasa ibang level na sila, sabi ko nandon ‘yung takot ko kasi kakayanin niya ba yang kalaking responsibilidad?” But Melai assured her that Jason would work hard for them.

When asked if she has thought of having a baby at this point of her life as well, Angelica commented, “Hindi ko pa naman nasasabi sa sarili ko kasi ang laking responsibilidad ‘yun and I think ‘yung mga ganong bagay pinaghahandaan, pinag-iispan, pinag-plaplanohan. So mas gusto ko naman na nasa tamang plano ‘yung pagkakaroon ko ng additional sa aking buhay.”
