Roxanne Barcelo — who is set to embark on a new journey as a first-time mom, posed for a magazine feature released in time for Mother’s Day.
The 36-year-old actress — who was 37 weeks pregnant when the photoshoot for MEGA Entertainment took place — described her pregnancy in four words which she said perfectly encapsulates her “path to selfhood.”
“I named each look and vibe expressing the different phases of my pregnancy, specifically: awakened, gratitude, alignment, and manifestation,” she said.
“Collectively, I called it the Path to Selfhood, and it really visualizes the sounds of my mood and this new season of my life,” she added.
Revealing what made her decide to push through with the shoot despite the circumstances, she said: “Since my dear friend, Boggy was the one who initiated the maternity shoot, I was feeling a lot of gratitude. Especially, how everyone just said yes to the project.”
While some women may not feel confident about their bodies during pregnancy, it was a different story altogether for Roxanne. She said: “It felt so good to feel confidently beautiful with a bump!”
It was in January this year when she announced her pregnancy. Last April, she revealed that she and her partner are expecting a baby boy.
She first opened up about her pregnancy in December 2020.
