MANILA, Philippines — Kapuso actress Marian Rivera gave an update on her second pregnancy, which is now on its fourth month.

During the recent press conference of Maxi-Peel Zero, where she is the endorser together with Maine Mendoza, Marian revealed that her second child is bigger that her first born Zia.

“Nung naglihi, ako hinanap kong una kamias tapos nag-mangga, lahat ng maasim. Ni-recommend din ng OB ko na kailangan kasi ‘yung anak ko ngayon mas malaki e. So kailangan i-exercise ko siya para pagdating nong araw na manganganak ako, alam ko kung anong muscle ‘yung gagamitin ko sa pag-ire. Kasi ang talagang target ko is normal again,” said Marian.

She is preparing for childbirth through pilates.  

If given a chance to choose, Marian said that she, husband Dingdong Dantes and Zia want a baby boy.

“Kung bibigyan ng pagkakataon, sabi ko nga, may Zia na ko siyempre mas gusto ko lalaki, pero kung ano ang ibigay sa akin ng Panginoon, okay sa akin basta normal at healthy dahil mayroon pa akong dalawang chance kasi apat na anak ang gusto ko. Pero kung palarin kakadasal ng anak ko gabi-gabi dahil gusto niya raw ng baby brother, malay mo pagbigyan siya ng Panginoon,” she said. 

The actress also told media that her pregnancy is the complete opposite of her first one.

“Ang pregnancy, kahit sinong nanay ang tanungin mo, iba-iba ‘yan e. Kay Zia kasi di ako inaantok, ‘di ako ganoong kalakas kumain. Ito kasi baligtad, palagi akong inaantok, sobrang lakas ko kumain. Pero hindi naman ako hirap, enjoy naman ako,” she said.  

For Marian, pregnancy fulfills her womanhood and she has always cherished the feeling of being pregnant because it is her dream.

“’Pag buntis ka kasi maraming bawal. Marami kang bawal kainin, marami kang bawal ilagay, pero sa tuwing mabubuntis ako, ito ‘yung gusto kong pakiramdam dahil pangarap ko ‘to, isa ‘to sa mga pangarap ko, ang magkaroon ng maraming anak at maging nanay talaga. Ito ‘yung buhay na gusto ko, gusto kong maging nanay,” she said. 

“Pag nasa bahay ako, sabi ko ang kulit ng anak ko, isa palang to, ‘pag lumabas na ‘yung isa tapos makulit din, ewan ko nalang kung maganda pa 'ko nun. Pero iba pa rin ‘yung pakiramdam na kapag nanay ka, may anak ka, lalo na pag gusto mo, kahit na nahihirapan ka kasi hindi naman biro ang pagbubuntis, siyam na buwan mong dadalhin at aalagaan mo. Kakain ka ng nutrisyon, aalagaan mo yung sarili mo para sa kanila, hindi siya madali pero gusto ko siya dahil pangarap ko siya,” she enthused. — Reports from Deni Rose M.
