Dionne Monsanto is pregnant! The former actress and Pinoy Big Brother housemate shared the exciting news on her 36th birthday, Sunday, December 5, along with photos of her 20-week-old baby bump.

"Best birthday and birthday gift so far," Dionne wrote on Instagram. "This year has given me sooo much! I moved to a new country, learned a new language, discovered new interests, got engaged, married my best friend and love of my life @nayr_redlats, and together, we traveled and discovered different countries and cultures. BUT, this may be our most exciting adventure yet!

"I have never been this in love with life, and with love itself," she said. "I am so wildly grateful to the universe for conspiring in my favor. Thank you so much to our family and friends who have given us nothing but love, positivity and excitement for our growing family."

Angelica Panganiban, Yam Concepcion, Sue Ramirez, Kaye Abad, and Rachel Peters were among those who congratulated Dionne on her pregnancy. Fellow PBB albums Karen Reyes, Will Devaughn, and Coraleen Waddell also expressed their happiness for the former actress in the comments section of her post.

Dionne, 36, tied the knot with businessman Ryan Stalder in Switzerland last March. They got engaged in February, after dating for almost three years.

Ahead of her wedding, Dionne announced that she was retiring from show business to be with her husband in Switzerland. The former actress, who started her career in 2002, made the announcement on the morning show Magandang Buhay.
