Jennylyn Mercado and Dennis Trillo welcomed their first child.
Jennylyn made the announcement via her vlog on YouTube channel on Sunday night, May 1, 2022.
Her followers at first thought it was a tour of the nursery, but it turned out to be a ruse to get their attention to the real story.
The 34-year-old Kapuso actress wrote, “Hello mga Bessies! Welcome back to our Youtube channel.
“Grabe sobrang tagal na nun huli tayong nagkita at ngayon sa aming bagong episode, excited na kami ni Dennis ipasilip sa inyo ang nursery room para sa paparating na miyembro ng aming pamilya.
“Maraming salamat po sa lahat ng tumulong sa amin para mabuo ang nursery room ni Baby D. [heart emoji]"
This was the part when she teased, “Watch na kayo mga Bessies till the end. Surprise! :)”
Jennylyn first showed some baby stuff—organizers, a pink couch, several cabinets and more organizers, baby clothes, and a black-and-pink stroller.
The the text “4/25/22” flashed on the video.
It turned out to be the day Jennylyn and Dennis welcomed their baby.
The tour segued into the couple's video clips taken at St. Luke's Medical Center.
Jennylyn said, “Check-up lang dapat kami ngayon, e, bigla na lang kaming manganganak na raw…”
She continued, “Hindi kami ready.”
Dennis, for his part, admitted to feeling nervous about their baby’s unexpected arrival.
He said, "Susunod na ako sa operating room, medyo kinakabahan ako."
The vlog ended with a photo of Dennis accompanying Jennylyn inside the operating room.
In a vlog uploaded on November 15, 2022, Jennylyn and Dennis happily announced they were having a baby girl.
The baby’s gender reveal took place right after the Kapuso couple’s civil wedding ceremony at TGIS Studio in Quezon City.
Both Jennylyn and Dennis have kids from previous relationships.
Alex Jazz is Jennylyn's 13-year-old son with actor Patrick Garcia.
Calix, on the other hand, is Dennis’ 13-year-old son with former beauty queen Carlene Aguilar.
