Dimples Romana is pregnant with her third child.
The Kapamilya actress made the announcement during the media event of her latest endorsement, vitamin brand Fortima on Friday, March 18.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I am expecting baby number 3!” Dimples happily said. “Say hello to my baby bump,” as she showed her pregnant belly to the camera.
The 37-year-old actress narrated that she was surprised upon learning about her pregnancy.
“Feeling ko talaga because my body is in good health, it’s very strong right now and I feel great. I think kaya naging mas mabilis din ‘yung pagkakaroon namin ng baby. So alam mo, I really have been eating good, I lost the unnecessary weight before I even got pregnant. So feeling ko talaga because I’ve been taking the proper vitamin supplements, I have been doing all these exercises and proper diet kaya alam mo ‘nung nalaman ko ‘yung balita, as in nagulat ako. Kasi we weren’t even trying. Kasi siyempre kami naman ni Boyet (Ahmee, her husband), [we] already have Callie and we already have Alonzo and seven years later, malay ko ba magkakaroon pa ako ng isa pang baby so we are very pregnant po.”
She added, “Lahat ng mga blessings na dumarating sa’min ngayon, feeling ko came about because alam na rin ng pamilya namin and alam ni Lord na we are physically ready for all the work that we are about to take on, all the challenges that we are about to take on. I think it starts from there na gawin mong malinis ang lifestyle mo, kumain ka ng tama. Take the proper vitamin supplements...
“And all these challenges na gusto niyong maachieve or mapagtagumpayan, magagawa po niyo talaga. While I’m taking care of myself, I’m also taking care of my family of five. Five na kami.”
At this point, Dimples turned emotional, “Pasensya ka na, sobrang naiyak ako kasi parang first time ko to really go out there and say we’re now a family of five.”
Happy with where she is currently at, she added, “I feel content in my heart.”
Likewise, Dimples gave a hint on what she will name their new baby. “Yes, baby letter E po ito. So kung ito ay girl or boy, in one week, malalaman na ninyo kasi A.B.C.D. kami. Alonzo, Boyet, Callie and Dimples. Ngayon letter E na ito,” she said, referring to the names of her family members.
Dimples has been married to Boyet Ahmee since 2003. Their first-born daughter Callie is now 18 years old, and has been preparing to move to Australia for college. They also have a son named Alonzo who is seven years old.
