Arthur Solinap and Rochelle Pangilinan are holding their baby's gender reveal party with their parents next week in Japan. (Philippine Entertainment Portal) caught up with the Kapuso couple at the launch of Happy Skin and Posh Nails's nail polish collaboration in One Rockwell, Makati City, last Tuesday, October 23.

Rochelle Pangilinan and Athur Solinap already received the envelope which will reveal the gender of their first baby.

The couple got the baby's latest ultrasound result from their doctor at The Medical City in Ortigas Avenue, Pasig City, on Tuesday, October 23.

But they plan to open it in front of their respective families.

"Nasa amin na yung envelope ng gender nung baby, pero hindi pa namin binubuksan," Rochelle told (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in an exclusive interview at the launch of Happy Skin and Posh Nails' nail polish collaboration, just a few hours after they got the ultrasound result.

She continued, "May plano pa kasi kami. May bakasyon kami this coming undas so baka dun, kasama na yung family."

Rochelle and Arthur are taking a short vacation with both of their parents in Japan next week.

Arthur thinks that it will be the best time to reveal the gender of their first baby since both of their families are present.


He said, "Eksakto, kasi sabi ko, yung parents naman yung importante, so dun na lang namin gagawin sa Japan."


Rochelle, now in her second trimester, is grateful to have a strong support system.

She told, "Yung mga parents namin, may edad na, and ang nakakatuwa lang sa kanila, ang mga binibigay nilang advice like, 'O maalimuom, wag ka maupo diyan' 'Wag kang manood ng nakakatakot' 'Wag mo gulatin!'

"Yung mga makalumang paniniwala yung binibigay nila.

"Siyempre sa advice, alam na naman nila... tutulong sila anytime.

"And yung advice nila sa amin, kung paano lang din nila kami pinalaki, ganun lang din.

"Wala naman masyadong pressure."

Aside from her parents, Rochelle also seeks advice from friends, including LJ Reyes, who is also pregnant with her baby with long-time partner Paolo Contis.

Rochelle narrated, "Sinabi ko nga, e, 'O, pag wala akong milk, ha, bigayan tayo.'


"Mahirap na kasi hindi ko rin naman kasi alam... hindi mo alam kung anong mangyayari, kung magkaka-milk ka ba?

"Kasi yung iba meron, yung iba konti, yung iba marami.

"So siyempre, bigyan, kung sino ang blessed, yun ang magbibigay."
