Neil Coleta is going to be a father.
The actor, who is known for his roles in the ABS-CBN series 100 Days to Heaven, Juan Dela Cruz, and FPJ's Ang Probinsyano, is expecting his first child with his partner, Wowowin dancer Jazmin Chinnei.
On Monday, June 7, the couple happily announced that they are having a baby girl, as they gave a glimpse of a gender reveal party organized by their family and friends—including superstar couple Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla—on Instagram.
"'It's A Girl.' Yahoooo. Pero para sakin, sabi ko nga… kung ano man po kalabasan ng gender, okay na po kami dahil blessing po galing sa Panginoon. Maraming salamat po... and pangako iingatan namin sya at mamahalin," wrote Neil in his post.
Addressing his partner, the actor said: "Lalo na sayo Chin Kee. Alam ko sa mga susunod na araw mas madaming pagsubok ang darating... pero andito lang ako para sayo. Mahal na mahal kita, at salamat din sa mga friends and family na sumuporta."
Jazmin, for her part, shared in her post that it has been their dream to start a family together.
"We’re having a #babygirl soon. Thank God sa tiwala samin ni [Neil] na biyayanan kami ng malaking blessings. Ibibigay namin lahat para kay baby. Mamahalin nang sobra sobra. Eto po yung matagal na namin pangarap pareho, na magkaroon ng baby kaya sobrang happy namen nung una pa lang nalaman na buntis ako," she said.
The dancer then told Neil: "Mahal thank you sa lahat lahat. You’re the best partner/daddy to us. Mahal na mahal ka namin ni baby."
Neil and Jazmin have been dating for seven months.
The 29-year-old actor was last seen in the Star Cinema movie Princess DayaReese, starring Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber.
