After getting married and announcing they have a baby girl on the way, longtime couple Dennis Trillo and Jennylyn Mercado started off 2022 on an unexpected note. In their new vlog titled “Positivity” which is their first video uploaded this year, the couple revealed the reason behind their short hiatus online.

“Kung napansin nila, ilang weeks tayo hindi nakapag-post ng videos. Bago pa lang mag-New Year nagkasakit na kaming dalawa ni Dennis. Pero hindi COVID, parang regular cough,” Jennylyn said.

Dennis said that throughout their isolation period, they repeatedly tested negative for virus.


“Nagkaroon kami ng medyo malalang ubo. Medyo matagal siyang nawala parang two weeks bago completely nawala. Pero awa ng Diyos hindi siya COVID. Ilang beses kami nagpa-antigen at RT-PCR. Lahat naman ng tests namin ay negative. Pero masuwerte pa rin tayo kasi itong whole run ng pandemic na ‘to ay hindi pa rin natin siya nakukuha. Kumbaga hindi pa rin tayo dinadapuan ng COVID maraming salamat naman,” he added.

Now on her sixth month of pregnancy, Jennylyn explained why her son Jazz did not join them in the condo.

“Halos lahat ng tao sa bahay namin ay nag-positive. After New Year, mga January 4, January 5, may isang tao na na-expose sa kanila. Tapos ayun, sunod-sunod na yun buong bahay except kaming dalawa ni Dennis at saka si Jazz. Kaya hindi namin kasama si Jazz ngayon kasi exposed naman siya dun sa yaya niya na positive din. Sinigurado muna namin na hindii maging carrier si Jazz at mahawa rin ako, lalo na ako. Sixth month ko na. Iniwan namin si Jazz sa bahay pero naka-isolate siya. Actually lahat ng tao dun naka-isolate.”

Thankful for the care given to her by her husband of four months, Jennylyn showed in the vlog how he accompanies her on daily walks and even encouraging her to do more activities like swimming.

“Araw-araw na nandito kami since day one na lumipat kami dito sa condo, si Dennis ang halos lahat gumagawa ng mga bagay dito sa condo kasi ayaw naman niya ako pakilusin. Si Dennis ang nagluluto, naghuhugas, naglilinis. lahat-lahat (laughs). Masuwerte ako na kasama ko siya dito kasi at least naaalalayan ako ng husto. Naaalagaan. Na-practice yung pagiging mag-asawa namin dito,” she said.

Dennis said he has no complaints about the set-up. “Kasi kaming dalawa lang talaga. Dalawa lang naman kami dito so konti lang yung hinuhugasan ko. Konti lang naman yung dumi dito sa condo kaya kayang kaya naman. Masaya naman. Actually hindi ko masyado namalayan na two weeks na pala,” he added. 

In their nine-minute vlog, the couple also shared tips on how to stay healthy and safe. “Aalagaan niyo siyempre yung sarili niyo at yung pamilya niyo kasi ngayon parang makasalubong ka lang ng taong may COVID, kinabukasan meron ka na rin.

“Pagdating naman sa mga supplements at vitamins nag-do-double dose kami. Vitamin C, zinc, D3, magnesium, lahat na ng puwedeng pampalakas ng immune system. Kung puwedeng huwag muna lumabas ng bahay, huwag munang lumabas. Magpaka-healthy kayo sa pagkain, sa mga vitamins,” Jennylyn explained. 

Dennis shared how keeping active was beneficial for him and his pregnant wife. “Dapat pinagpapawisan ka pa rin ng konti, nasisikatan ka ng araw dahil maganda yun may vitamin D para sa immune system. Sa pagkain kailangan balanse, kailangan meron kang pambawi na healthy food kahit na kumain ka man ng mga junk. Yung walking, maganda yun para siya nagmamanas. Nalaman namin na maganda rin pala yung swimming,” he added.

Thankful to have never tested positive for COVID ever since the pandemic started, Dennis said he owes it to Jennylyn’s cleaning habits. “Hindi ko maintindihan minsan kasi si Jen sobrang clean. Kahit siguro hanggang ngayon hindi pa rin kami nagkaka-COVID dahil siguro sa extra awareness na yun. Ngayon siguro okay maging praning para makaiwas sa mga dapat mong iwasan. Lalo na sa sakit,” he admitted.
