Noontime show hosts Pauleen Luna and Vic Sotto are excited with their first baby, even if she is already causing a trouble in the new family!
Yes, the baby is a girl!
In a gender reveal party last June, the couple’s “Eat Bulaga” family cheered for either Team Lebron (if baby boy) or Team Jessica (if baby girl). Sotto later divulged that they are having a baby girl.
Why the name Jessica?
“It’s just a working title,” Sotto jokingly told a reporter. “When we were interviewed by Jessica Soho after our wedding, I told her that if and when we had a baby, we would name her Jessica. At first, she didn’t get the joke, noong kinumpleto ko, Jessica Sotto, doon siya tumawa.”
However, the couple wants a biblical name for the baby.
Although she is only six months pregnant, Luna shared that she’s almost complete with the baby stuff. “May mga stroller na kami sa bahay,” she said. “Hindi ko siya sini-set up para 'pag nag-leave ako, saka ko siya gagawin.”
But she hasn’t fixed them yet because she wants to be busy once she takes a break from Eat Bulaga.
“Gusto ko kasi 'pag mag-leave ako, dun ko na aayusin yung mga anu-ano, mga gamit.
“Kasi feeling ko mabu-bore ako kapag… since sanay akong araw-araw ako nagtatrabaho,” Luna told PEP.ph during the show’s 38th anniversary.
Don’t worry, fans. The actress won’t be leaving Eat Bulaga any time soon since it depends on how she feels and looks on the TV.
“Pag hindi na kaya… pero magaan pa naman ang pakiramdam ko ngayon,” the blooming Luna answered.
The couple was elated when they saw their baby through ultrasound. As for the 4D? Luna was advised that she could have it done on the seventh month, saying, “kasi ngayon payat pa siya.”
Luna also shared how Vic is excited for the malikot baby.
“Kinakausap niya [Vic] araw-araw. Kasi active siya, e. Sipa siya nang sipa.
“Normally, pag umaga, niyayakap ko siya from behind para ang tiyan ko nakadikit sa likod niya. Para nararamdaman niya yung sipa,” Luna said.
