"I am three months pregnant, yes! I'm on my third baby. I don't know if it's a boy or a girl yet."

At the launch of BlackBerry Playbook held in Dusit Thani Hotel earlier, August 3, Angelu de Leon showed up with husband Lorenzo "Wowie" Rivera...and a noticeable baby bump!

The 31-year-old bedimpled actress still manages to look as charming as she was in her T.G.I.S. (Thank God It's Sabado) days, and even so now that she is with child.

However unfortunate it was that she had to sacrifice her role in GMA network's afternoon soap Sisid, Angelu is certain that "God wants her to enjoy her pregnancy in a different light."

"The first few weeks of my pregnancy, I spotted," she shared. "I really had to make sure kasi... ayokong ma-bed rest."

Angelu experienced four days of bed rest, which she described as "nakakabaliw!"

Good thing, her colleagues in Sisid have been considerate.

"It was good naman of them to really take care of me din sa taping. They're very, very nice," she told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal).

BYE SHOWBIZ, FOR NOW. Her condition made her decide to leave the soap, where she plays the mother of lead star Jackie Rice.

"They had to kill me sa role but it was fine, kasi parang sabi ko nga ano, e, bittersweet. Kasi, I really love my Sisid family, the people I worked with there."

Asked what she misses about working with them, the mom-to-be quickly quipped, "Yung kainan namin!"

She went on narrating what happens when the cameras are not rolling.

"Kasi lagi kaming pag may taping, ang feeling nga namin hindi kami nagte-taping, kasi ang feeling namin lagi kaming may party! Lagi kaming may fiesta!

"Ako, laging may dalang pagkain. Si Maricar laging may dalang sweets. Minsan nagku-cook out pa kami, kasi beach setting di ba?

"So it's really more than work, it's family. Parang lagi kaming may excursion," Angelu said.
