Celebrity couple Luis Manzano and Jessy Mendiola recently announced that they are expecting their first baby through a vlog on Jessy’s YouTube channel that was posted on Thursday, August 11.
The pregnancy news came more than a year after the couple got married. The two tied the knot in a Batangas resort on February 21, 2021.
But aside from this, the Manzanos are also welcoming another part of the family as they were recently announced as the new faces of telco brand PLDT Home.
In an interview, the couple talked about the importance of maintaining an active online presence as celebrities. Jessy, who is also a vlogger, said, “My YouTube channel taught me to show the real me and how to be more open to the world. It helped me become more relaxed and original when it comes to myself. I promised myself to always put out real and authentic content because my subscribers and viewers appreciated me more when I started showing my true self.”
Yet no matter how busy she is, the actress also believes that it is possible to pursue her personal goals and fulfill her duties as a wife at the same time.
“Being married and pursuing personal goals at the same time is possible. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t let go of your personal aspirations once you get married. I’m lucky I married a person who would always support me no matter what,” said Jessy.
As for Luis, the Kapamilya actor-host stressed the importance of having bonding moments with his wife.
“One thing that never fails is how we bond by streaming movies, downloading or uploading vlogs, watching scuba diving videos, and others. What I got to appreciate about my wife even more is how family-oriented she is both towards her own, mine, and our own family,” he added.
