Rica Peralejo 

Rica, husband Pastor Joseph, and their five-year-old son Philip began 2019 full of hope and faith.

The celebrity mom, who was four months and a half pregnant at the time, shared the news through her YouTube channel, where she narrated the highs and lows of her pregnancy so far.

Rica continues to reflect on the blessing her family has just received.

In an Instagram post dated April 17, the future mother of two recalled a time when she became worried and wanted to buy a portable doppler to monitor her baby's heartbeat.

"Everyday I felt afraid to not know if my baby's heartbeat had already stopped beating..." she wrote.

But Rica kept the faith and "began to believe that even when I do not feel it, my baby is alive."

She continued, "It was so hard to choose faith over doppler machine but I did it because I wanted to exercise my faith more than my fear.

"Cause you know, whichever you train more, is what grows more..."

 

Rica is now in her third trimester.

Saab Magalona

Friends and family rejoiced when Saab posted the words "Kuya Pancho" on her Instagram post.

The second-time mom informed everyone that she was pregnant again in April.

"There's no right or wrong way to go about it, it's different for all parents, but Jim and I know in our hearts that our baby has returned to us.

"A Christmas gift to our family, a birthday gift to Pancho — whatever he/she is — we are so grateful for baby number two..."
