Jolina Magdangal is elated now that their eldest son is becoming a Kuya. "Thank you Lord. Thank you talaga. Naku sobrang, sobrang pinag-pray talaga namin 'to. At saka sobrang saya ko para kay Pele. Hindi na para sa 'ming mag-asawa, para kay Pele."

Jolina Magdangal is pregnant with her second child!

The actress-TV host, who turned 39 on November 6, made the announcement early today, November 7, during her birthday celebration on the morning show Magandang Buhay, where she is one of the co-hosts.

She was joined by her husband Mark Escueta and their son Pele Iñigo, who will turn four years old in February. 

The segment began with co-host Melai Cantiveros recalling Mark's birthday wish for Jolina a year ago.

The video of his guesting was played, and it showed Mark giving this message to his wife: "Sana ready ka na sa regalo ko sa 'yo na KNP."

Jolina asked him what "KNP" meant, and Mark answered, "Kapatid ni Pele."

Back in the studio, Mark said he needed the help of his "best friend" to reveal their gift to the 39-year-old birthday mom.

He then called their son Pele to join them on the set. 


The toddler came carrying a transparent balloon with a white paper and green confetti inside. 

Mark then asked Pele, "What's our birthday gift for Mama?"

Pele answered, "I'm Kuya Pele!"

The studio erupted in cheers as Jolina confirmed, "Yes, nine weeks na po ako at kuya na po si Pele!"

Mark revealed that the white paper inside the balloon was Jolina's eight-week ultrasound.

Pele also donned a white bull cap with gold embroidery spelling out, "KUYA."

As green confetti rained on the set, Jolina said, "Thank you Lord. Thank you talaga. Naku sobrang, sobrang pinag-pray talaga namin 'to. At saka sobrang saya ko para kay Pele. Hindi na para sa 'ming mag-asawa, para kay Pele."

Melai teased Mark, who was getting teary-eyed.

With his voice shaking, Mark added, "Kung napansin niyo, bagong gupit din si Pele. Kasi sabi namin, pag Kuya na siya, do'n siya magpapagupit." 

Pele previously sported nape-length curly hair. 


Jolina then opened a box containing a bull cap with "BABY" embroidered on it and white shoes that matched Pele's. 

Jolina's co-hosts, Karla Estrada and Melai, were also delighted with the announcement. 

Melai said, "You are truly blessed kasi lahat ng hinihingi mo kay Lord, binibigay niya.

"Kaya kung meron lang akong tabletas na puwedeng ipapainom ko sa 'yo, worry-free na tabletas para talagang hindi ka na magwo-worry.

"We love you and happy birthday."

For her message, Karla apologized for revealing Jolina's pregnancy to some people before the couple's official announcement.

"Momshie Jols alam mo naman na ako yung sobrang atat na atat nang i-announce ito.

"Pasensiya ka na kung marami na 'kong napagsabihan. Hindi ko kaya dahil ako ay excited."

She continued, "I will always be here for you bilang ate mo. Pagpasensiyahan mo kung ang pagiging ate ko ay talagang lumalabas.

"Pero hindi naman ako magbibigay ng advice kung wala akong pakialam at pagmamahal sa tao. Deep in my heart I know that I love you and tinuturing kitang kapatid."


Jolina and Mark got married twice in 2011.

They had an intimate church ceremony at Madre de Dios Church in Tagaytay Highlands on November 19, and a Bohemian-inspired garden wedding ceremony at Splendido Taal Golf and Country Club in Tagaytay, on November 21.
