MANILA -- (UPDATE) Assunta de Rossi revealed on Tuesday that she is expecting a "miracle" baby.
On Instagram, the 37-year-old actress shared that she went to see her doctor last March 5 after she missed her monthly period.
“An ultrasound scan and blood test confirmed later that day that I was about 5 weeks pregnant. I know, shocking,” she said.
Referring to the pregnancy as a miracle, de Rossi explained: “Getting pregnant the natural way with myoma and endometriosis (which I both have) is extremely difficult. Only medical intervention or a miracle can make it happen.”
De Rossi, however, revealed what scares her, now that she’s 14 weeks pregnant.
“I haven’t gained an ounce of weight. Everything I eat goes to my tummy and (breasts),” she said.
De Rossi married Jules Ledesma in civil rites at his hometown in San Carlos City in December 2002.
De Rossi's younger sister Alessandra immediately congratulated the couple on the baby.
”Ayan. Nahipo ng birhen! Congratulations," she said tagging her sister and Ledesma. God really answers prayers. 16 years of praying! Heto ka na, tita na me!” Alessandra wrote in the caption.
