Ethel Booba revealed that she is expecting her first baby with her beau, Jessie Salazar, on "It's Showtime" today, November 14.
The comedienne-singer announced that she is six months into her pregnancy. She happily said, "I’m happy for the gift of life. Double celebration, double congratulations to me! Ito na nga, six months (pregnant ako)!"
Ethel also sincerely apologized for her performance, saying that she's having a hard time singing now that she's with child.
"Pasensiya na ha, hindi ako makabuga ang sakit talaga ng puson ko. Kaya nahiharapan ako kumanta [kasi] parang lalabas yung bahay-bata ko," she joked.
Ethel and her boyfriend Jessie have been together since 2017. She also opened up about her boyfriend in her recent "Tonight With Boy Abunda" interview, saying that she's ready to settle down with him soon.
Congratulations, Ethel and Jessie!
