MANILA – Mariel Rodriguez gave her followers on social media an update about her pregnancy more than a week since she flew to the United States where she will give birth.

On Instagram on Monday, Rodriguez shared a photo of her first ultrasound scan since she arrived in the US.

Rodriguez was accompanied by her aunt during the check-up.

While Rodriguez is in the US, her husband Robin Padilla remained in the Philippines.

In previous interviews, Padilla explained the need for Rodriguez to give birth in the US. 

"Una, siyempre kailangan malaman ng karamihan na 'yun pong pagbubuntis ni Mariel ay napakadelikado. Iyan po ang isa sa mga pagsubok na dinadaanan ni Mariel. Hindi naman po namin sinasabi na hindi kaya dito iyan sa Pilipinas. Kaya!" he said.

Despite this, the two still keep in touch through video calls. 

“At least we are sleeping next to each other... @robinhoodpadilla we miss you!!!!” Rodriguez wrote in another post.
