GMA-7 actress LJ Reyes announces through a YouTube video that she's four months pregnant with Paolo Contis's baby.

LJ Reyes is pregnant with her second child.

The 30-year-old Kapuso talent broke the news through her first YouTube video titled "A Pleasant Suprise" early today, August 27.

In the video, LJ did a mini-quiz with her eight-year-old son Aki, her son with former boyfriend Paulo Avelino.

Among the questions were: "Are You ready to be responsible?" and "Do you want a playmate?"

Choosing between "Yes" and "No," Aki answered "Yes" to both questions.

However, LJ's son answered "No" when asked about wanting a new best friend.

That segued to LJ's good news.

She said: "Totoo, mommy's pregnant!"

In disbelief, he replied, "Why is it not moving?"

LJ explained, "It's not yet moving kasi it's small pa."

Paolo's voice could be heard in the background and seconded, "She's not [joking], she's pregnant."

Aki eventually believed LJ and Paolo.

When asked if he wants a boy or a girl, Aki said he wants a baby brother.


LJ told Aki that she's hoping for a daughter.

Aki replied, "Why a girl? That's arte."

The Kapuso talent is set to give birth this January, making her four months pregnant.

On Instagram, Paolo expressed his excitement.

He wrote, "YES WE ARE! God has blessed us with the perfect gift and we couldn’t be happier!

"We want to thank our families and friends who are as excited as we are.

"And to you @lj_reyes ... When we became a couple 3 years ago, I felt so lucky!

"With all the problems I had, all the baggage I carry, you still accepted me and became my partner and strength.

"Yes, we do have our bad days (dahil matigas ang ulo ko) but we always manage to be okay and happy...

"And now that we are expecting... I promise to be beside you all the way. You will never ever be alone.


"Thank you for everything my love! Mahal na mahal kita!

"We feel so happy and blessed and we just can't help but share this great news with everyone.

"Now, let’s celebrate!! #BabyContis2019"
