After revealing last June that she was expecting her third child, the pregnancy journey for former actress Nadine Samonte has not been easy. Last month, Nadine revealed that she almost lost her third baby due to pregnancy complications after sharing a photo on social media showing bruises on her growing belly due to her struggle with an autoimmune and hormonal disorder.
Last August 3, Nadine requested prayers from her online followers to help her and her family overcome some health issues. Nadine’s eldest child Heather Sloane, who is turning 5 later this month, had to undergo eye surgery while her husband businessman Richard Chua is scheduled for an angiogram. The 33-year-old actress-turned-entrepreneur is also dealing with a difficult pregnancy.
On her Instagram account, she wrote,
“I’m kinda emotional right now I don’t know what to say or do but I know everything will be fine. Kapit lang , prayers lang. ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.’ This is what I’m thinking for the past weeks. Yes we are going through a lot , hindi halata noh? Pero ngyn hindi ko mapigilan emotions ko , I need your prayers. This week will be very tough for me and the whole family. Heather will have an eye surgery today , and my husband will have his angiogram this week You guys know na I’m struggling also with my pregnancy but here I am fighting and trying to be strong for them, for all of us. Crying on my own so they won’t see how I really feel. I want to be strong for them. It’s so hard pag family talaga. I’m really really emotional right now. I can’t stop my tears while typing this. Lord give me all the strength . I know we can do this with you. ”
Last year, Nadine found alternative ways of making a living outside showbiz. Aside from selling her personal line of beauty products, she also started selling dried fish like danggit, dilis, and pusit, from Masbate.
