Iwa Moto will soon be a mother of two.
The actress made the announcement on Thursday, July 23, by sharing on Instagram a sonogram of her second baby.
“Hello there little one,” she wrote in its caption.
“We are all excited to meet you. But for now chill ka muna diyan. Magpalaki ka at magpalakas. 'Wag mo na pahirapan si mommy, ha. Love you.”
Addressing her followers, Iwa said: “Hello everyone, meet the new addition to our family. Coming soon.”
Iwa didn’t reveal how far along is she on the pregnancy, but said that she is expected to give birth in 2021.
In an Instagram Story, Iwa said she’s “overwhelmed” by the support she got from her family, friends, and fans regarding her pregnancy.
Among the stars who expressed excitement with meeting her second baby was the former wife of her partner Pampi Lacson, actress Jodi Sta. Maria, with whom Iwa has formed a close friendship.
“Hello. We can’t wait to meet you,” wrote the Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin star.
To which, Iwa replied, with a string of laughing emojis, “Nauna ka pa nga nakaalam kesa sa tatay.”
“Congratulations madam and [Pampi]. ‘Wag magpapa-stress! Be healthy for the baby,” added Jodi.
Iwa, who rose to fame in 2004 as a finalist of the GMA-7 talent search StarStuck, has an older daughter, Hiromi Aiko Eve, with Pampi, her boyfriend of eight years.
She gave birth to their firstborn in September 2013.
Iwa is also the second mom of Jodi and Pampi’s son, Thirdy, whenever he spends time with his dad.
