Anne Curtis on Monday confirmed that she is already on her fifth month of pregnancy and is expecting to give birth in March 2020.
The It's Showtime host is currently expecting her first child with her husband, restaurateur and vlogger Erwan Heussaff. The celebrity couple broke the news on Sunday through a short video revealing Anne's already visible baby bump.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News' Mario Dumaual, Anne shared how she found out that she's going to be a mother.
“Just like every other woman, I think, ikaw muna, e. Gusto mo muna malaman on your own, and then iko-confirm mo with a doctor after," she said.
“It was early on in the pregnancy na I could feel something different sa body ko. Ta’s parang, ‘Hindi ‘yan!’ And then, iyon na nga, when I felt na, ‘Parang iba talaga!’ Nag-test na ako," she added.
Anne, who revealed that she's already past the phase of morning sickness, described her pregnancy thus far as "smooth-sailing".
When asked whether she prefers a baby boy or a girl, she said, “Alam mo, honestly, anything basta healthy. That’s all that matters to me. It’s a blessing. I just really pray na healthy and smooth the rest of my pregnancy.”
On the subject of maternal leave from her work commitments, including her daily hosting stint on It's Showtime, Anne said that she will continue working as long as her body allows her to.
“I think hangga’t kaya ko pa naman. I feel very strong naman. Hindi naman ako delicate or high-risk," she said.
Meanwhile, Anne could not hide her excitement on the prospect of shopping for her baby, saying, "I’m excited but I have to control myself!"
"I know there will come a time when I’ll have to stop working. That’s when I’ll probably do all that, ‘yung talagang makakapag-isip ako nang tama," she added.
