Former GirlTrends member Riva Quenery, 22, and vlogger Vern Flores Ong, 25, are having a baby girl.

The couple made the announcement through a vlog uploaded on Riva's YouTube channel on May 30, 2021.

Riva and Vern invited some of their closest family and friends to an intimate basketball-and-pink-bow-themed gender reveal party.

The video later showed Vern doing basketball dunks, which then exploded with pink smoke.

Riva said, "Super excited ako kasi super tagal ko nang inantary itong moment na ito, itong gender reveal.

"Pero para sa akin, kahit anong gender naman talaga. Basta lagi kong pinagdadasal is healthy yung baby paglabas."

Although Vern admitted he would have loved to have a baby boy, he agreed with Riva totally.

The social media influencer said, "Ganun din, kahit anong gender ng baby basta healthy."

RIVA's "DISCLAIMER"

At the start of her vlog, Riva addressed the suggestion of her social-media followers to put out a disclaimer to her younger audience who may follow her example.

Although she's happy and very much excited to enter motherhood at a young age, Riva said it doesn't mean that her younger followers can also do the same.

She stressed that there are a lot of things to consider first before a couple decides on having a kid.

"Hindi lahat ng nae-experience ko, maaring ma-experience niyo rin. Iba-iba iyan.

"So yung mga nae-experience ko lang, shine-share ko lang sa inyo. Pero yun nga, yung ibig kong sabihin, hindi kailangan gayahin ninyo, okay?

"Ako, lucky lang ako na solid yung support system ko from my family and from Vern's family.

"May work kami parehas ni Vern. Able kami na mag-raise ng child. We will make sure na hindi mahihirapan yung baby."

Riva also apologized for not putting out a disclaimer earlier, "Gusto ko sana mag-disclaimer at humingi rin ng sorry kasi hindi ako nakapag-disclaimer.

"Ngayon lang ako nakapag-disclaimer dahil nga, alam mo yun, sa sobrang saya ko, sobrang excited ako, dire-diretso na ako magkuwento at hindi ko na naiisip yung kailangan kong sabihin na pa-disclaimer.

"May mga nababasa na ako na hindi naman bash, hindi naman siya bash, pero parang sinabi niya lang na dapat may pa-disclaimer ako lalo na sa mga bata."

She elaborated, "May mga nakikita ako na baka daw isipin ng mga bata, 'Ah, okay lang pala magka-baby anytime, any age,' 'Okay lang pala, ganun lang pala ka-easy.'

"Kasi kung titignan mo yung videos ko di ba ganun talaga yung magiging itsura niya.

"So yung ibang mga kabataan na nagfa-follow sa akin, sabihin nila, 'Ah, si Riva nga ganitong age, baka puwedeng mas maaga din ako o baka puwedeng parehas kami.'"

Riva explained that although many people were happy for them, it might not be the same for others. Gusto kong sabihin sa inyo guys na situational kasi iyan.

"Ako, kaya ako super happy and yung mga tao na nakapaligid sa akin dahil kami ni Vern, stable kami parehas at kampante kami na maalagaan namin yung baby.

"Unang una, dahil na din sa mga taong nakapaligid sa amin. Hindi naman din namin kaya na kaming dalawa lang muna yun.

"Super number one talaga yun kasi kung hindi naman okay yung family ng both sides, for sure hindi rin ako ganito magkuwento sa inyo na with excitement.

"Iba pa rin yung may blessing ng family."

Riva also reminded her followers that starting a family and having a baby are a big responsibility.

"So kami, able kami and parehas kaming may work ni Vern. So huwag niyong iisipin, 'Ah anytime, puwede na magka-baby.'

"Kasi baka nakikita niyo lang yung positive side ng pagkakaroon ng anak.

"Alam namin na may struggles pa kaming pagdadaanan pero kasi kami, confident kami na malalagpasan namin yun dahil sa mga support system namin at siyempre, sa capabilities din namin ni Vern as a couple.

"So huwag niyong iisipin na kung kailan lang maisipan ng baby, go na agad. No."

Riva added she is sure about Vern as her future husband.

"At saka sa side ko naman, sure din kasi ako na si Vern yung gusto ko makasama in the future. So yun yung mga kailangan niyo isipin."

Riva and Vern first announced the pregnancy through their social media accounts last May 16, 2021.

They have been together for two years. They celebrated their second anniversary in April 2021.
