Today in Kris TV, comedienne Pokwang together with her beau Lee O’Brien shared with host Kris Aquino and guest co-host K Brosas the story behind her pregnancy and unfortunate miscarriage.
Pokwang said that she first consulted K as she was still doubting if she’s really pregnant. The two then went to an OB/GYN and it was confirmed she’s really pregnant. That’s the only time when she told her boyfriend Lee the good news.
“Nung nasigurado na talaga namin sa OB na ‘Yes, you’re pregnant’ tsaka ko na nasabi sa kanya (Lee). [It was a] Sunday, merong lunch sa bahay with some friends, pinakita ko sa kanya ‘yung ultrasound keme,” Pokwang said.
When Lee met Pokwang he was a bachelor and this was supposed to be his first child. When asked about his reaction he said, “I was happy, you know it’s something that we’ve both wanted so I think it was something like kind of, in the process obviously there’s that initial ‘absolutely am I ready?’ this is different you know like ‘cause that’s a new phase in life it’s a whole new chapter and understanding responsibilities that come with it.”
After sharing the good news, Pokwang experienced difficulty with her pregnancy.
“Korek, naloka ‘ko nun sabi ko bakit ganun. Nung una ‘di ba sabi ni Doc normal lang yang mga ganyan pahabol parang ganyan. Pero parang ‘di na’ko natutuwa tumi-three days na hindi na tama ito,” she shared.
At that time, Kris and Pokwang prayed together on a Sunday and the Queen of All Media advised her that maybe it was time for her to take a break from work to be able to save the baby because its heartbeat was getting weak. During Pokwang’s pregnancy she was busy with the primetime series “Nathaniel” and the staff also told her to take a break and check with the doctor to know more about the baby’s condition.
“Oo parang ganun, para matuloy kasi masyadong mahina ‘yung kapit. Oo (she was told to rest), kasi sinabi ko sa kanila na parang one week na’kong nag sa-spotting parang ‘di na tama. So siyempre natakot sila sabi, ‘Mamang umuwi ka na muna or pumunta ka sa doctor pa-checkup mo na yan’,” Pokwang elaborated.
“Sobrang hina talaga nung heartbeat ng bata and then the next, Saturday wala na. Wala nang heartbeat,” she sadly shared.
Meanwhile, Pokie’s daughter Mae sent a touching message for her and Lee, which moved them to tears.
“To my Mom, Seeing you happy makes me happy. Alam mo naman po kung ano ang tama para sa sarili mo. Sana siya na talaga ‘yung taong sinasabi mo na gusto mong magpasaya sayo hanggang pagtanda mo. I love you po.
“To Lee, Take good care of her, she is all I’ve got. I’m happy for the both of you.”
