Manilyn Reynes, Joyce Pring, Christine Babao, and Shaira Diaz were among the celebrities who expressed their excitement over the couple's announcement.
It was in mid-June when Sheena first confirmed her pregnancy, with a photo of her showing her growing baby bump. At that time, the 33-year-old star said she was already 13 weeks pregnant.
Her husband, meanwhile, made the announcement with a photo showing him and Sheena holding the sonogram of their baby.
Referencing the popular US TV show, he captioned the photo as "the first episode of 'How You Met Your Parents.'"
In this first episode of “How You Met Your Parents”: . . . Let me tell you about a story on why your parents looked like this when we first saw you. Well, it was the worst of times and the best of times. Worst of times, because, well, there’s #Covid19 and all the humans in the world are #quarantined. You can google it up, or you’ll eventually learn it in your History Class. So, yeah, pretty much everyone’s bummed out about it. Best of times, well, because God gave us YOU! 👶🏻 . . . As early as now, you already mean the world to me! 🍼 #HowYouMetYourParents

Sheena, who rose to fame in 2004 as a finalist of the GMA-7 talent search StarStuck, announced her pregnancy amid the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-2019) pandemic and four months after her wedding to Jeron.
Sheena and Jeron tied the knot in a dazzling, star-studded wedding ceremony at Blue Leaf Events Place in Quezon City on February 23.
Jeron proposed to the actress at a movie theater in San Juan in 2018.
