"And now we're three!" Halili, 33, captioned an Instagram photo of her showing her baby bump, with the hashtag #13weeks.

Manzanero, meanwhile, shared a selfie with Halili holding the sonogram of their baby. Notably, the couple wore face shields — an indication of "the worst of times and the best of times," in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

Referencing the popular US TV show, Manzanero captioned the photo as "the first episode of 'How You Met Your Parents.'"

Addressing their child, he wrote: "Let me tell you about a story on why your parents looked like this when we first saw you. Well, it was the worst of times and the best of times."

"Worst of times, because, well, there's #Covid19 and all the humans in the world are #quarantined. You can google it up, or you'll eventually learn it in your History class. So, yeah, pretty much everyone's bummed out about it."

"Best of times, well, because God gave us you! As early as now, you already mean the world to me!" Manzanero wrote.

Halili rose to fame in 2004 as a finalist of the GMA-7 talent search "StarStuck." She and Manzanero got married in February 2020.
