On a Good Friday Alice Dixson sends good news.
The 51-year-old actress happilly announces in her social-media accounts that her wish has come true —the "newest little family member" she has been waiting for has finally arrived.
Posting a photo of baby footprints, her caption reads (published as is), "Despite the unexpected trials this year, God gave us a little miracle...
"For those of you who really know me - you’ve known that I’ve been praying for this every year on my birthday for 10 years now.
"Each year - my wish the same when I blew out my candles.
"So with great patience, belief and trust - I am happy to announce my wish has finally come true.
"Our newest little family member has arrived.
"From my family to yours. Advanced Happy Easter."
Alice revealed in November 2019 her plan to have a baby, and that she and her partner had agreed it would be by way of surrogacy.
The former beauty queen told ANC's Headstart, "Well my personal journey is super personal, pero sige I will share it.
"We are still in the process of surrogacy. My partner and I, oo.
"So I have not given up on that. I think this is our last year to try."
Alice disclosed hat she tried getting pregnant, but "it didn't work out."
She said, "Sa akin it was never about the way I would look after. It was about my age and my concern about the safety of the child, the wellness of the pregnancy.
"I've tried previously and it didn't work out. So parang my partner and I decided, 'Okay let's try surrogacy.'"
Alice and her partner have been together for nine years. They met in April 2012, and were introduced by her make-up artist Jean Castor.
To this day, she has not revealed his name. But in some of her previous posts, she referred to him as "GS."
