Being quarantined has been a unique chapter in the family life of Lara Quigaman and Marco Alcaraz.

Both agreed that being locked in together has tested and strengthened their bond as a couple, especially now with their third son coming soon in September.

Marco told (Philippine Entertainment Portal), "Ngayon kasi, talagang magkakasama kami sa buong pregnancy.

"It's a blessing din sa amin na magkakasama kami. Mas nag-bond kami as a couple and as a family."

Lara said she appreciates her husband's patience at this time more than ever, "Mahaba talaga pasensya ni Marco at ako, maiksi pala pasensiya ko.

"Pero, you know, grateful talaga kami for the time together kasi nga, before, sobrang busy."

Marco added, "Kung mahaba pasensiya mo before, kailangan mas mahaba ngayon kasi alam natin kung gaano kahirap mabuntis, di ba?

"Let them feel good... We're enjoying each other’s company talaga."

Lara chimed in, "Na-discover namin na mahal pa rin pala namin isa't-isa kahit buwisit na buwisit kami."

This is the first time for Lara to experience almost the entire period of her pregnancy while staying home.

The beauty queen-turned-actress said, "You know, God is really good din naman kasi if you just look at the good things, marami pa rin talaga makikita...

"Parang na-enjoy ko talaga iyong pag-rest. Mas nakakatulog ako nang mas mahaba, mas nakaka-rest ako nang mas mahaba.

"So in a way, kahit walang work, nakakapag-rest kami. Before kasi, with my past two pregnancies, nagwo-work talaga ako.

"Lalo na with my second kasi work ako up to halos manganak na ako."

At the time of her second pregnancy in 2018, Lara was in the cast of the ABS-CBN series Bagani, which ran from March to August 2018.

In fact, the actress nearly fainted on the set because of her pregnancy.

Lara also appeared in the series Halik, which ran from August 2018 to September 2019.
