MANILA, Philippines – Veteran broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez is denying reports she is pregnant.

“Mabuti pa ang Twitter buntis ako, pero sa totoong buhay hindi pa. Hindi pa talaga,” she told “The Buzz” in a taped interview.

The rumor started to spread on the Internet after Senator Panfilo Lacson asked Sanchez’s husband, Mar Roxas, during his confirmation as Transportation and Communications Secretary, if his wife is already pregnant.

“Kagagawan iyan ni Senador Ping Lacson, napagtripan yata si Mar sa kanyang confirmation,” Sanchez said. Lacson subsequently told Roxas not to answer his question.

The journalist, however, admitted she and Roxas are already consulting with doctors on the matter.

“Sinabi ko naman sa inyo, project iyan. We’re consulting doctors so malay mo talagang this year na or next year,” she said.

Sanchez and Roxas got wed at the Santo Domingo Church in Quezon City on October 27, 2009.
