Handling a pregnancy is a tricky situation for most couples, so it's without surprise that there's some speculation that Pokwang's relationship with her American boyfriend is a little shaky because of it. 

But as if to sweep those rumors aside, she posted on Wednesday a rather funny birthday present she received from her beau, Lee O'Brien. 

Showing the gift off on Instagram, the comedienne shared a photo of her posing in front of stacks of assorted vegetables and fruits. 

She captioned her post: "Sa dami ng prutas at gulay na binili ni papang [Lee] at padala ng aking [Banana Sundae]l family, nag mukhang palengke ang kusina ko!! Haha! Hoy, mga suki! Bili na kayo dali! Sure na sure walang bird flu ang tinda ko"

O'Brien also had a message, saying: "Happiest of birthdays my love! Giving you my best wishes for the coming year (big things coming up!) and mahal na mahal kita!"

It was back in June when Pokwang, who just turned 45, first announced her pregnancy with O' Brien. It comes two years after she confirmed a miscarriage. 

Early this month, she showed off her growing baby bump. She has previously opened up about her delicate pregnancy, saying that she has been advised to take as much bed rest by doctors.

Pokwang and O'Brien have been in relationship since January 2015. The two met while working on the TFC movie "Edsa Woolworth." 

Pokwang already has a daughter with a former partner.
