MANILA – Chynna Ortaleza is excited to welcome her second baby with her husband, musician Kean Cipriano.

The actress had a book-themed maternity shoot with Cipriano and their firstborn, Stellar, as they prepare for the arrival of baby Salem. 

On Instagram, Ortaleza said she hopes to pass on her late father's love for books to her son.

"Papa, you never really left. I feel your energy in every book that you left in my care. The boy in my womb will be born into this wealth of literature. May I be able to pass down your unending romance with books to your grandchild," she said.
