Today, May 21, is another memorable day for the noontime show “It’s Showtime” for Mariel Rodriguez, who had 2 miscarriages in a year, happily confirmed that she is 3 months pregnant.
Before even saying anything, she was already crying tears of joy.
“I’m really so happy na finally mase-share ko po talaga sa inyong lahat kasi ang tagal ko nang gustong i-share ‘to sa inyo, ang tagal ko siya ipinag-pray, ang laki ng naging part ninyo sa naging journey ko.”
Mariel added that ever since she became part of “It’s Showtime” she became happier, more relaxed and less pressured. “Everything happens in God’s time.”
“Thank you so much, I’ve been waiting for this, I prayed for this and finally nandito na siya. I’ve never been happier, thank you!” Mariel said before they group hugged.
Later on, Robin joined Mariel and the other hosts on stage and gave a touching message for everyone.
“Nais ko po munang magpasalamat sa lahat ng host, sa staff, sa crew, sa pagbibigay kaligayahan sa aking Mariel. Dumating po kayo sa buhay niya sa oras ng kanyang matinding kalungkutan,” he said.
He also said that because of the madlang people, Mariel became optimistic about her condition. Robin shared that everyday, Mariel prepares as early as 6am for the madlang people.
Robin then revealed that they served as a miracle for Mariel because experts initially told her that she might not be able to conceive because of her unfortunate miscarriages.
He then thanked the hosts one by one for all the support they gave him and his wife.
“Kayo pong lahat na nagpupuno ng aking mga pagkukulang sa aking asawa at magiging anak. Kayo pong lahat ang tumayong ama… Sa hirap po at sakripisyo kayo ang kasama niya araw-araw.
“Kaya sana po kung mamarapatin po ninyo itawag po natin dito sa batang ito ay Showtime baby, yun lang po ang hinihiling ko sa inyo,” he said.
Lastly, he also told Vice Ganda, “Ms. Vice, ikaw ang napaglilihian ng asawa ko.”
In MJ Felipe’s report in TV Patrol, Mariel also said she plans to take part of Pinoy Big Brother’s 11th season in spite of her pregnancy. The new season is slated to air by the second quarter of 2016.
