MANILA, Philippines — A number of celebrities received the gift of having a baby in 2014.

Many were surprised with Cristine Reyes and Melissa Ricks' announcements of their pregnancy due to their relatively quiet love lives, while Kristine Hermosa and Oyo Sotto were blessed with their third baby. 

So here is a list of some celebrities who got pregnant in the year of love.

Cristine Reyes

Many were surprised when Cristine Reyes announced in the Sunday noontime show "ASAP" that she was pregnant. 

The sexy actress has been mum about her then-rumored pregnancy with her non-showbiz boyfriend Ali Khatibi, and even walked out during an interview after being asked about it.

After her revelation, Cristine explained that she's having a delicate pregnancy and wanted to assure the safety of the baby before going public. 

Melissa Ricks

After some weeks of speculation, ABS-CBN’s talent agency Star Magic confirmed the pregnancy of one of their young talents, Melissa Ricks.

The actress admitted that she was at first scared of the people's reactions about her pregnancy, since the public wasn't aware of her non-showbiz boyfriend. 

Although nervous of the responsibility, Melissa is nothing but happy about having a baby.

Jennica Garcia

Jennica Garcia and Alwyn Uytingco is expecting their first baby, which they announced on November through social networking site Instagram.

Jennica asked for the public's prayer because she's having a delicate pregnancy, after experiencing bleeding on the first few weeks of her pregnancy.

Kristine Hermosa 

Three years after giving birth to their second baby, Kristine Hermosa got pregnant with her third child with Oyo Sotto.

Her husband made the announcement through his Instagram account, saying that their prayers has been answered since the actress got pregnant without taking any medications. Kristine have polycystic ovaries. 

Kristine gave birth to their third child on October 11 and named him Kaleb Hanns. 

Ara Mina

It was last May when Ara Mina revealed that she was two months pregnant with her partner, Bulacan Mayor Patrick Meneses. 

The actress was very careful with her pregnancy since she has experienced miscarriage in the past.

She carefully chose the projects she would accept and tried not to stress too much with her beauty-line business.

Ara gave birth to a baby girl on December 17, naming her baby Amanda Gabrielle.
