Recently, the celebrity couple Janella Salvador and Markus Paterson introduced their first born baby to the world.
Janella tells the story as she recalls the time when they found out she was pregnant. “Before that, I had a weird feeling already because I wasn’t my usual self and you know, I was feeling so bloated. I didn’t want to eat the usual food that I usually like. And that’s weird for me, because I eat everything. I love to eat. So I was like, okay, this is weird,” she stated.
Janella and Markus, together with his manager and their friend, was in Boracay on February.
“We decided to just buy the test there… I took two and tada! The funny thing is, his manager, Kuya Allan, was asleep when I took it, so we were thinking, ‘Gigisingin ba natin siya?’”
“As soon as I took the test, [I told Markus], ‘Okay, I’m nervous. But why are we smiling?’ We were actually happy. At the same time, I didn’t know what to feel. I was happy, and I couldn’t stop smiling. But I was also nervous,” she said.
Janella said that she told her mother when she was already four months pregnant. “She was the scariest! Of course, she’s my mom. She was actually one of the last people… She got tampo nga [She was slightly disappointed]. She said, ‘Why did you just tell me now?’ It’s because I was so scared. I didn’t know how to tell her. I told her, I was I think four months already,” she said.
The couple originally planned to tell her mother in person, but couldn’t due to the pandemic so they had to call her instead.
“We had to settle for a video call because of the pandemic. It went okay. My mom actually didn’t… I expected the dragon to come out of her but it didn’t, you know. She was listening. It was a good conversation.”
Janella and Markus stated that they are in “no rush” for the wedding as they are more focused on raising their son Jude.
