It’s a baby girl for Jolina Magdangal and husband Mark Escueta!
The Kapamilya actress-host happily revealed her second baby’s gender during the January 29 episode of her morning show, Magandang Buhay.
Together with her co-hosts Melai Cantiveros and Karla Estrada, Jolina expressed her utmost thanks to God for making her wish come true.
She said, “Kaya talagang emotional ako kasi sobrang-sobra yung binigay sa amin na blessing!
“On time binigay at yung gender [na] winish namin, binigay pa!”
The former '90s teen star said she prayed to bear her second child sometime late 2017, and this was fulfilled when the celeb mom announced on November 7, 2017 that she was nine weeks pregnant.
Jolina remarked, “Nasa plano talaga namin and plano talaga namin 2017.
“Pero ang hindi ko talaga ineexpect, binigay sa akin yung right time na gusto ko kasi gusto namin last quarter ng 2017. Ibinigay siya talaga… so talagang sobrang thank you!”
DOUBLE THE LOVE. With their second child on the way, Jolina and Mark know they would have to double their efforts as parents.
Even though their three-year-old son, Pele, already gave them sufficient experience, Jolina figures that having two kids around would change the game.
She remarked, “Yung time mas mapag-igihan pa namin talaga na ibigay para sa family... iba na kapag dalawa na, di ba? Iba pa kapag apat.
“Kasi dati, kay Pele, ang dali dahil isa lang. ‘O, ikaw naman magpakain, tapos ako magpapaligo.’
“Pero kapag dalawa na, sabay-sabay, di ba?”
But both of them remain excited for their next family's chapter.
Mark, the soon-to-be father of two, was also on the show during the gender reveal.
He added, “Excited na ako makita maglaro silang dalawa [ni Pele].”
