But the situation will change when Eva tells him that she is pregnant.

One day, when Eva tries to confront Isabel, a squabble takes place eventually putting the rallying employees to jail, including Isabel and Lucio, her avid suitor.

Eva now faces her fear of Cesar leaving them once he learns of Isabel’s pregnancy. Her mom, Sophia, will convince her to continue pretending that she’s pregnant. They will adopt a baby to make their plan realistic. It will be a success and the baby will be named Natasha.

After many years, the newly-hailed marketing officer of the Legacy Corporation, Natasha stumbles upon Diana in a beauty contest and a rivalry is born between them.
