After recently announcing that she is now expecting a baby with her husband and former Pinoy Big Brother co-housemate Mickey Perz, Gee-ann Abrahan said she wants the baby’s gender to be a surprise even if her friends want her to announce it already. “My friends are kind of pressuring me to do a gender reveal so we have it sealed it in an envelope. Pero meron akong feeling kung ano siya (laughs),” she told PUSH.
During a Skechers Sandals event, Gee-ann spent time with her old friends from their season in PBB. “Me, Bea Saw, and Dionne Monsanto have always been close since the beginning, inside the PBB house kami yung unbreakable for some reason. I think when the show started si Wendy (Valdez) and Saicy (Aguila) they had their admirers so parang naturally kami rin naman yung nag-click kasi on the same wavelength kaming tatlo. Usually kapag may activity, they partner up so kami yung naiiwan sa isa’t isa so since then we make an effort to really see each other and keep in touch. Talagang iba eh,” she recalled.
After more than a decade since joining season 2 of Pinoy Big Brother, Gee-ann admitted she has already changed a lot. “Sabi ni Mickey ang laki na pala ng pinagbago ko from the house kasi nung una ako yung iyakin, ngayon ako yung nang-aaway (laughs). Baliktad na. A lot of people say, especially the ones close to me, na ang layo ko na from before. Si Mickey naman the same. More or less the same. Siguro hilaw na hilaw pa talaga ako nung nag-join ako ng PBB. And because of it, I saw the world in a different perspective. I’m super thankful for that experience pero pag tinatanong ako kung babalik ako, ayoko na (laughs). Huwag na. Tama na yung isa (laughs),” she said.
Being in the PBB house for a couple of months was an unforgettable experience for Gee-ann. “It was nothing I expected. But I think I wouldn’t be the person I am today if it weren’t for the show. Ang weird, I always tell people that if you have the opportunity to go there, if you want it, and if you’re ready, then go for it. It will be life-changing. You will really see yourself in a new way. Feeling ko kahit anong experience ko sa buhay, iba yung nandun ka sa loob,” she said.
Gee-ann admitted she probably would not have ended up with her husband if it weren’t for PBB. “Kung nagkakilala kami sa labas ni Mickey, hindi kami magpapansinan. Siguro hindi magiging kami at all. Baka friends lang. Hindi namin papansinin ang isa’t isa siguro,” she added.
Now that she has been absent from the showbiz scene for some time, Gee-ann said she does not see herself getting back into it like before. “A lot of people are still asking me. They follow me on social media but they say they still want to see me on TV. It’s not like it’s something that I ever wanted to do. Hindi ko naman in-expect na ganun yung mangyayari. When I was younger, when opportunities come then why not? Parang ganun. Pero ngayon I guess you become more selective also. At saka mas mabenta ngayon ang millennials although technically mga overaged millennials kami (laughs),” she explained.
