From facing the fear of barrenness, actress LJ Moreno and Gilas Pilipinas member Jimmy Alapag are set to have a one big happy family for the coming year.
The couple is expecting their baby girl on December, but before the delivery of their firstborn, they have already adopted a two-year old boy.
In an interview with PEP.ph, LJ shared that the boy came into their life two days before learning that she is pregnant.
“Actually, when we were matched with him [baby boy], two days after, I found out I was pregnant,” exclaims LJ. "It was all in God's perfect time, once na-establish yung business and si Jimmy rin towards the end of his [PBA] career, so he can be more hands-on. So, nakita namin na, 'Okay, plano talaga ni God ito.'”
She then recalled the frustration that they felt when even the doctors couldn’t find out why they can’t conceive at that time.
“We were checked, we were trying since 2010, but the doctor said wala namang problem sa aming dalawa. Mas nakaka-frustrate kasi parang walang problem, e, pero yung walang explanation, 'You’re both healthy, it’s really just timing,’” she says. "So, lahat ng sinasabi ng mga tao na kapag nag-stop kayo mag-try… siyempre hindi naman ini-expect na ganun.”
LJ had a difficulty going through the first trimester of her pregnancy; despite that endeavor the couple couldn’t contain their excitement to become parents to two healthy kids.
"Si Jimmy ay excited na rin sa pagiging ganap na daddy sa isang baby boy and baby girl,” expresses LJ. "It’s exciting, we have a growing family. We just can’t wait for her [baby girl] to be here.”
