"Last week of August," Jennylyn answered gladly.
Joey then shifted to a moreserious matter which involves of course, Patrick Garcia. He asked, "Ito,paulit-ulit na ito, pero umalis na naman si Patrick? Kaaalis lang batalaga ito papuntang Amerika?"
"Hindi ko alam, e," Jennylyn said, sounding a bit flustered. "Hindi ko po alam, Kuya Joey. Wala po talaga akong alam."
Does it mean she and Patrick have zerocommunication?
"Wala na po talaga."
Joey cracked a joke, "So, parang ang credit card siya?Parang ayaw naman niya, ‘I don't own,' o ‘I own'?"
Jennylyn just laughed as Joey's intent hithome. Changing the subject, Joey asked, "Sa palagay mo, okey ka namagde-deliver, walang problema, nagpapa-checkup ka lagi?"
"Okey naman po, sana normal delivery," Jennylynanswered.
Joey followed up with a questionregarding the sex of the child. Jennylyn proudly answered, "Boy po, KuyaJoey!"
PATRICK'S FAMILY'SSTATEMENT.PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) recently posted a news item on the statement of Patrick's family , who offered to help Jennylyn, "Just knock on the door and we will open for you."
What is her say on this?
"Hindi ko naman kailangan, e," Jennylyn laughed asJoey's expression changed from curiosity to complete surprise. "Bakit ko namankailangang kumatok sa mga pintuan na hindi naman open para sa akin."
"Paano kung naka-‘open' na at hindi mo na kailangangmag-knock?" Joey suddenly asked. "Ayaw mo pa rin?"
"Hindi na," Jennylyn said. "I think it's too late nafor that. Ayoko na."
Well, that's that. Before they wrapped up theinterview, Joey asked where Jennylyn plans to give birth. Here in thePhilippines or abroad?
"Dito na po sa Pilipinas," Jennylyn said. "Hindi nadin ako pinayagan ng OB ko na umalis, e. Masyado nang malaki ang tiyan ko."
