It was the first time I saw this baby had a shape. Indeed, I am having a baby. This is real. The baby is moving. The heart is beating. Baby even has a profile. How strange, for before this was just a series of lifeless blobs on a screen of black and green. . . I realized that when defeat and surrender have become your norm, fighting for something becomes extra challenging. By this point I think I had learned helplessness and it took me at least three whole months to believe that I can have this one, on earth, this time. . . I love you, Sweetheart. As much as I love your Kuya and as much as I also still love the two other ones before you. They may have not made it but I will always remember. And I will always love and long, knowing that there should really have been the four of you. . . #mamawonders #mamalongs

“It was the first time I saw this baby had a shape. Indeed, I am having a baby. This is real. The baby is moving. The heart is beating. Baby even has a profile. How strange, for before this was just a series of lifeless blobs on a screen of black and green,” she said.

“I realized that when defeat and surrender have become your norm, fighting for something becomes extra challenging. By this point I think I had learned helplessness and it took me at least three whole months to believe that I can have this one, on earth, this time,” she added.

This healthy pregnancy has been a personal milestone for Rica as she suffered two miscarriages prior – one in 2016 after 12 weeks and another in 2017 after just eight.

“I love you, Sweetheart. As much as I love your Kuya and as much as I also still love the two other ones before you. They may have not made it but I will always remember. And I will always love and long, knowing that there should really have been the four of you,” she continued.

Rica announced that she’s expecting another child through a vlog entry in late of January. She was said to be four months pregnant at the time.

She and her husband, Christian pastor Joseph Bonifacio, welcomed their first child Philip Nathaniel in January 2014, four years since they tied the knot in a beach wedding ceremony.
