Celebrity couple Jennylyn Mercado and Dennis Trillo are expecting a baby girl!
The newlyweds announced the news on their vlog on Friday, November 26, which took place after their intimate wedding ceremony last November 15.
In the 8-minute video, Jennylyn and Dennis both opened up about how they always wanted to have a daughter, especially since they both have sons from their previous partners.
Jennylyn has a 13-year-old son with Patrick Garcia named Alex Jazz, while Dennis has a 14-year-old son named Calix with Carlene Aguilar.
“Gusto naman namin ng ibang mapaglalaruan, ibang mabibihisan. Lalo na si Jen, tuwang-tuwa siya sa baby girl,” Dennis recalled.
The couple also revealed how they even requested to have a girl during their surrogacy plans in the United States.
“Kahit andun pa lang kami sa Dallas, ginagawa pa lang namin 'yung surrogacy plans namin, ni-request namin na sana baby girl ang lumabas,” Dennis admitted. "Tapos 'yung gender nun, binalita sa'min na male."
Jennylyn continued, “Mina-manifest na natin na girl 'to. Kahit hindi pa namin alam, 'baby girl 'to.' Mahilig akong tumingin ng pink. Siya [Dennis] confident naman na girl yan. Ganun kami ka-confident na girl.”
And so they got their wish. During the gender reveal event, the couple sliced a cake while the guests were given a box with a pot inside of it — both of which turned out to be pink, indicating that they'll have a baby girl.
Congratulations, Jennylyn and Dennis!
