Jessy Mendiola recently opened up about the preparations she and husband Luis Manzano are making before they have a baby.
In a report by PUSH, the “Extra Service” actress revealed that while there’s no baby on the way yet, she’s currently on a break from her acting career to enjoy her married life with Luis and focus on digital projects.
“Actually iniisip ng lahat pregnant ako eh. I’m not yet [pregnant]. I’ll tell everyone naman, don’t worry about it,” she clarified.
She then admitted, “I miss acting. I miss taping. I miss all of my katrabaho but siguro medyo hindi ko pa siya priority now kasi ang dami ko pang ginagawa na iba.”
“I’m really focused on building my life with Luis and yung digital [projects] ko rin ang daming nangyayari. But I would love to go back. As in I miss acting, I miss shooting and hopefully sana may good script soon,” she added.
Aside from putting her career on hold, Jessy said that being healthy and in good shape is part of her preparations for having a baby soon.
“Priority din talaga ang health. I’m preparing for that. That’s why hindi pa ako [bumabalik]. I still workout naman. Mostly 'yun 'yung lagi nilang sinasabi na dapat daw kapag magbubuntis dapat hindi mag-workout, hindi magkilos-kilos. But it’s more of kung ano nakasanayan mo in life. Kung ma-workout kang tao, you have to still continue doing it. But of course less weights, less strenuous activities,” she said.
In terms of the number of kids they’re hoping to have, the actress disclosed that Luis actually wants five: “Sabi nga niya gusto niya ng five. Sabi ko, ‘Yung totoo, basketball team?’ Siguro mga three at the most kasi kami din ng sisters ko tatlo kami.”
“Sana may twins kasi si daddy yata may twin 'yung brother niya. So may twins siya na mga kapatid. Sabi ko sana makuha natin 'yun. Pero sabi sa girls daw [namamana] ang twins, [na] most likely magkakaroon ng twins,” she shared.
Having been married since February, Jessy and Luis shared in one of their vlogs that they have already designated one room to be the baby room in their rental house.
