MANILA — Model-businessman Nico Bolzico on Monday paid tribute to his wife, actress Solenn Heussaff, six months into her pregnancy.
In a now-viral Facebook post, Bolzico shared a photo of Heussaff in a white dress, showing her baby bump.
Bolzico wrote: “It hasn’t been an easy journey for us and we still have 3 more months to go, but the love for our baby girl and the support of our loved ones have made us overcome all the obstacles!
“Since I met Solenn, I always felt that she was too good for me; but, since she is pregnant, I don’t only feel she is too good for me, but I also feel like the most useless human being on earth. If the pregnancy was a band playing, Solenn would be the one directing the band and playing all the instruments while I would be one smashing the cymbals every 30 seconds.”
Bolzico and Heussaff, who got married in May 2016, will be first-time parents when the actress gives birth in January.
“I thought I knew Solenn but seeing her pregnant changed my whole perception of her as a woman. I didn’t know she could be capable of so much love, but also, I wasn’t aware of her strength,” Bolzico said.
Addressing men, the model-turned-social media personality added: “We think we are the stronger gender, but we don’t understand how wrong we are until we see them being pregnant; so we should be 100% there for them to make sure we make ourselves useful if/when they need us, don’t complain, don’t ask questions just do what your woman ask you to do, because you will never be able to do what she is doing for you!”
“Bebu,” Bolzico wrote, addressing his wife, “thank you for everything you do for our family every day!”
“I know we are in this together, but you are Batman and I am Robin,” he said, referring to the popular DC Comics superhero and his sidekick.
