Janella Salvador revealed Maja Salvador turned emotional when she shared the news that she was pregnant with her first child with Markus Paterson.
Having worked with Janella for The Killer Bride, Maja did an interview with the first time mom to talk about her pregnancy journey.
Praising Janella for being brave enough to go public about her being mom, Maja said: “Natutuwa ako na ang strong mo — ‘yung hindi ka natakot. Nakakatakot pero naging brave ka kasi alam mo ‘yun, isang blessing ‘yung ibinigay sa inyo, ‘di ba?”
“Well, you, of all people, knew my journey — every step nandu’n ka, inupdate kita. Grabe ‘yung feeling na alam kong may life akong nabuo … may kini-carry akong life. It’s such a big thing,” Janella told Maja.
And hindi ko siya na-realize [agad] … kasi when I was pregnant, hindi ko alam parang hindi pa nagsisink-in agad sa akin na totoo na talaga. But now that he’s here, grabe ‘yung realizations ko.”
Asked what she felt when she found out she was carrying a child inside her womb, Janella answered: “Actually, the moment we found out, kinabahan talaga kami. Pero at the same time, nagtinginan kami kasi nasa Boracay kami nu’n. Kasi we were just there for a random trip. Gusto lang namin mag-take ng break to enjoy before naging scary ang lahat.”
She continued: “So I took the test there. Dalawa ang tinake ko. Tapos nu’ng nalaman ko, lumabas ako ng bathroom, siyempe. Sabi ko ‘It’s positive.’ Tapos nagtinginan kami. Kinabahan kami pero at the same time, we were like ‘why can’t we stop smiling?’ Parang ang saya pa rin namin.”
Maja, who was among the first to find out about Janella’s pregnancy, said she witnessed the joy her friend felt at that time.
“Kung paano niya kinuwento sa akin, ganyan na ganyan. Walang nadagdag, walang nabawas. At ganyan … ‘yang joy sa mata niya, ‘yan ngiti niya, ganyan. ‘Yung parang nandu’n nga daw ‘yung kaba pero silang dalawa, iba ‘yung joy na na-feel nila. Pero kasi, iba talaga ‘pag in love,” Maja said.
“Ikaw, umiyak ka,” Janella said, sharing how Maja reacted to the news that she was pregnant.
“Akala mo ‘no anak na anak? Kasi kakatapos lang naman ng Killer Bride that time. So feeling ko, nandu’n pa rin ang pagka-Camila ko,” Maja responded.
“Sabi ni Ate Maja, ‘Wait lang naiiyak ako.’ Narinig ko siya sa sa phone,” Janella said.
