Dani Barretto and Xavi Panlilio are finally breaking their silence.
In a vlog uploaded on Dani’s Youtube channel yesterday, June 13, the newlyweds revealed why it took them “a while” to publicize their pregnancy, and why they stayed quiet amidst all the speculation.
According to Dani, they weren't really planning to hide the news to everyone.
She explained, "There are things I want to keep to myself. Not because ikinakahiya ko or not because nahihiya ako. I wanted to keep it because I wanted to enjoy it. Because once it's out, wala na, eh. Ang dami ng taong mangingialam, marami ng taong may sasabihin kahit hindi naman kailangan.”
As for Xavi, he said that keeping the pregnancy on the down low is also his own way of protecting his wife and their future child. He said, "We don't need that kind of negativity in our life. Especially now."
Dani added, "We wanted to make some things right first before we would announce it. Gusto muna namin itama lahat kasi hindi na nga nagsimula ng tama. So we wanted to make it right."
Dani revealed that it’s always been a “dream” of hers to have a child, and is visibly delighted to be expecting.
"I've been wanting one so bad,” she admitted, “I think the heavens heard my prayer and we've been so blessed and I cannot contain the happiness I feel."
She pressed, "I wasn't really hiding; it's more of I'm waiting for the perfect time to say something. And that's why we're making this video because everything is okay.”
