MANILA, Philippines - After months of being away from the limelight, actress Kristine Hermosa surprised the public as she showed off her baby bump at the 5th Star Magic Ball in Makati City on Saturday.

"Yes, I'm okay and I'm happy," said Hermosa, who is 5 months pregnant. She was with her husband, actor Oyo Sotto, at the Star Magic Ball.

The actress said she is thankful that Sotto is always there to take good care of her and the baby.

"Actually kahit di ako buntis, maalaga siya," she said, referring to Sotto.

"Buntis ka wala ka namang magawa pero I still go to the gym. Gusto ko lang lagi siya (Sotto) makita," she added.

The couple said they want to have a first-born girl, if given a choice. They added that their families are also excited to welcome the baby.

Asked of her showbiz plans after giving birth, Hermosa replied, "Gusto ko muna mag-focus sa baby pero kung may offer, okay lang."
