Kapamilya actor Vin Abrenica is expecting his first child with his longtime girlfriend Sophie Albert.
Vin made the revelation in his latest vlog documenting his surprise proposal to Sophie, which happened when they shot the actress' maternity shoot in Batangas last year.
"After months of planning and preparing and waiting for this day, it finally happened! We are engaged and we are expecting our first baby together," he wrote in its description.
"Sharing with you our story and we couldn't be happier! Thank you everyone for your warm wishes! Happy Valentine's day to all!" he added.
On his Instagram page, Vin expressed his excitement to meet and hold their "precious little one" as he posted a photo showing Sophie's baby bump.
"Ahhhh! I can't wait! Gigil!" he said.
Likewise, Sophie said she can't wait to hold their child in her latest post, where she thanked those who have been sending her and Vin congratulatory messages.
"Thank you everyone for your all warm wishes. Our hearts are full," she said.
Rumors about Sophie's pregnancy first surfaced last month, following a "blind item" from PEP.ph about an actress who is said to be expecting her first baby with her actor-boyfriend, who is also a product of a talent search.
Vin, 29, and Sophie, 30, first met in 2012 on TV5 talent search Artista Academy. They have been dating since 2013.
Just last week, the couple shared the exciting news that they are engaged.
"You'll never know when you are truly ready until you realize who you're living and breathing for. It's you @itssophiealbert," said Vin in his post announcing the engagement.
"We've grown up together and I look forward to growing old together. Good luck @itssophiealbert, you are stuck with me for life. We're engaged!! 12.12.20”
For her part, Sophie said, "Before 2020 came to an end, the love of my life proposed to me. Despite all the challenges we had to face, we were able to close the year filled with so much hope and love as amazing surprises happened in our lives. We've been savoring our precious moments and we are ready to share our joy and excitement! WE ARE ENGAGED! Thank you @vinabrenica for everything. Thank you for being you and for making everything special. I am blessed to have you as my best friend for life."
Aside from their engagement and Sophie's pregnancy, the couple also recently announced they were going to move in together in a brand-new home that is nearing completion.
