"I know I don't deserve this blessing coz I haven't really taken care of myself... I'm always working out," Sotto, who is known to be a pole dancing enthusiast, was quoted as saying.

"And then God gave me this gift. Perfect timing from God talaga. It's a blessing," she said.

Sottto, who was part of the Cinemalaya entry "Hari ng Tondo," also admitted that she's having a hard time with her pregnancy but is grateful to have a very supportive husband.

Sotto, the daughter of Sen. Tito Sotto and veteran actress Helen Gamboa, said she and her husband are praying for a baby girl.

"Ang dami kong pamangkin na boys, isa lang 'yung niece ko. 'Yung niece ko sobrang favorite ko siya, so gusto ko ng sarili kong ganun," she said.
