Pepe Herrera is about to become a father.
The 32-year-old actor and his non-showbiz wife Sarah Mallari announced through an Instagram post on Thursday, March 19, that they are expecting.
Pepe uploaded a photo of Sarah's latest sonogram, further revealing they are expecting a baby girl.
Pepe wrote in his caption: "Si Baby Girl, ang sarap ng tulog. Nakanganga pa. Ang sarap pagmasdan. So Peaceful. Yan tuloy naimagine ko na kinakausap niya ako.
Sabi ni baby Girl sa akin -
"1. Tatay, Huwag ka na dumagdag sa ingay. Just do something to Help. Action > Words. Tuloy mo na yung naisip mong Foundation para sa mga nangangailangan. Pitch mo na sa mga willing tumulong.
"2. Tatay, balikan mo ang pagkanta ng mas madalas. Tapusin mo na yung mga nasimulan mong kanta. Kasi kung hindi mo tatapusin, ako ang tatapos niyan.
"3. Tatay, huwag ka magalala, sabi ni God, everything is being done according to plan, kaya imbes na magalala, manood ka na lang ng magandang Pelikula."
Toward the end of his message, Pepe asked his Instagram followers for their film recommendations.
He continued, "And with that, meron ba kayong recommendations? Hehe. Kahit anong inspiring movies dear friends. Lalo na kung may relation sa Mental Health or Good leadership.
"Or kahit anong palagay niyo ay magugustuhan ko. Hehe.
"Thank you for reading. Good morning. (Lalo na diyan sa Italy. Especially to my fellowmen over there. Come stai?)"
For her part, Sarah timed the announcement of her pregnancy with the celebration of International Women's Day on March 9—six months into her pregnancy.
She said in her caption: "Fast forward to today — it’s International Women’s Day. It also marks my sixth month of pregnancy.
"Yes, all the strong women in my life have inspired me to become this better version of myself in this tough time and environment, though the real reason I am who I am right now is because of my family and my friends.
"They are a mix of females, males, canines, and felines. I love each of them dearly, especially my spawn and my loving husband.
"Collectively, they contribute to making me this great woman I am today. With that, I am forever grateful."
Pepe and Sarah have kept their relationship low-key, but in an Instagram post on March 5, he referred to her as his wife.
The couple made their first public appearance together as sweethearts at the premiere night of Sunshine Family in Trinoma, Quezon City in June 2019.
