Singer-actress Jolina Magdangal announced happily on Tuesday that she is two months pregnant with her first baby with husband Mark Escueta.

“Yes, I am pregnant,” the 34-year-old former Kapamilya star said.

Only nine weeks into her pregnancy, Magdangal said she is preparing as early as now for duties as a first-time mom.

Hindi ko pa masyadong nararamdaman [ang pagiging ina], pero gusto ko nang namnamin. Nagbabasa na ako ng mga books. May mga application ang binasa ko na nae-excite ako. May mga videos doon na nae-excite ako kaya nagugustuhan ko ang ‘work’ na ito,” she said.

Asked whether they want a girl or a boy for their “panganay,” Magdangal said she would prefer having the latter, while Escueta, the former.

But the couple also quipped, “Kahit ano, basta healthy!” (MNS)
