Sara Duterte still vows to fulfill her duties as Davao City Mayor despite getting pregnant.
Sara Duterte, daughter of President Rodrigo Duterte, announced through a statement she gave during the 2016 Kadayawan Festival that she is expecting triplets that’s why she’s not present at the event.
“On this happy note, I would also like to share with you the news that I am pregnant and cannot join you in merrymaking activities.
"We are expecting triplets and they are doing well on their 7th week,” she said.
Despite the difficulty in bearing three embryos, she still promised to fulfill her duties as the mayor of Davao City.
“The human body is made to carry just one baby and I am experiencing threefold all the pregnancy symptoms that a woman goes through. I will continue to work until I am allowed by the doctors to do so, however, I have been advised to avoid crowded places to lessen the chances of acquiring infections,” she said.
“I may be physically weak but rest assured that I am on top of the situation here in our city," she added.
Sara is married to Atty. Manases Carpio. They already have two kids, Sharky, 7, and Stingray, 3.
