MANILA -- It goes without saying that Mariel Rodriguez is excited about her second baby with her husband, Robin Padilla -- the couple threw a huge gender reveal party last week.

Rodriguez shared on Instagram photos from her "mini-reunion" with Toni Gonzaga and Bianca Gonzalez. 

"How sweet!" she wrote, adding that she thought that she was only going to record a video for the show. "To my surprise they had a full set up in the pantry and my 'PBB' family were all there." 

"Soooo sweet!!! Love you guys!!! THANK YOU!!!! It was like a mini reunion. 'PBB' will always be family!!!! Maraming salamat!!!" 

It was back in May when Rodriguez first revealed that she's pregnant. 

During their gender reveal party, Rodriguez admitted that this second baby of theirs was not planned, but explained that she and Padilla had always wanted to give their first-born, Isabella, a sister.
