Pauleen Luna wasn’t able to mask her surprise over her husband Vic Sotto’s surprise announcement of their upcoming bundle of joy.
Vic announced the good news during his birthday celebration on Eat Bulaga.
“Gusto ko pong sabihin sa Pilipinas at sa buong mundo, na buntis po ako,” he joked. “Hindi po ako, ang aking asawa ang buntis."
The veteran star, who turned 63 last April 28, added, “Ang amin pong hiling ang inyong dasal para sa tagumpay ng aming anak.”
In an interview with the mom-to-be by PEP, Pauleen revealed that she did not expect her husband’s move.
“Nagulat ako dun! Hindi ako prepared!” she blurted.
According to Pauleen, they weren’t supposed to make any announcement about their firstborn. She also shared that her doctor advised her to take a lot of rest as she’s now 10 weeks pregnant.
“Hindi naman ganun kahirap ang pagbubuntis ko, pero hindi naman madali. Pero okay na ako,” she said.
Interestingly, Pauleen noticed something quite unusual about her body.
“Ang nakakaloka lang, may mga pimples ako! Mabuti pa si Pia [Guanio], parang wala lang sa kanya. Hindi siya nahihirapan!” she said laughing.
Pia is currently pregnant with her second child to her husband Steeve Mago.
Pauleen shares that she’s not shown any preference for any specific food or person at the moment.
“Wala naman. Ayoko lang yung mga matatapang na amoy. For a time, gusto ko lang itlog, kasi walang amoy,” she said.
How about morning sickness?
“Wala akong morning sickness. May nausea lang pero hindi siya tumutuloy,” she said.
Pauleen said she and Vic are hoping to welcome a healthy baby.
“Si Vic, mas gusto sana niya boy,” she added.
Their upcoming child is set to be Vic’s fifth child. Vic has children Oyo and Danica with first wife Dina Bonnevie, son Vico with seasoned star Coney Reyes, and daughter Paulina with former actress Angela Luz.
