MANILA – Cristine Reyes finally broke her silence on why she decided to keep her pregnancy a secret.
Reyes admitted she is pregnant during her “ASAP” guesting earlier on Sunday.
In a live interview hours later on “The Buzz,” Reyes explained that she chose to wait because it was a delicate pregnancy.
“[Ngayon ko lang sinabi] kasi nandito na ako sa stage na sure na 100% na safe ako and my baby because 'yung first three months ko po na akala ng lahat nagtatago ako, critical 'yung stage ko. Advice ng doctor na kailangan bed rest kasi nagkaroon ako ng bleeding. Kailangan ko alagaan 'yung sarili ko. ['Yun ang dahilan] kung bakit hindi ako nagwo-work,” she said.
The 25-year-old actress said the pregnancy did not come as a surprise for her and her boyfriend because they actually planned it.
“Kaming dalawa ni Ali (her boyfriend) magkasama, nag-test kaming dalawa. We are happy kasi it was planned and it’s not a surprise. First test namin, morning 'yun. Akala namin negative pa so na-sad kami. Nung gabi nag-test ulit kami, positive na. After that, ang inuna namin 'yung family namin. They were happy and excited,” she said.
Now that the news is out in the open, is she worried that this might affect her career?
“Yes but confident naman ako na kahit anong mangyari, babalik at babalik ako. I know nandiyan ang ABS-CBN for me, hindi rin po ako papabayaan ng Viva,” she said.
“Sa akin kasi I’m happy and content na sa lahat ng nagawa ko, lahat ng na-achieve ko sa buhay ko and career ko so wala naman akong wino-worry,” she added.
Reyes said she and her partner are planning to tie the knot after she gives birth.
“[Nagme-marriage counseling na po kami] in preparation po for the marriage and para meron kaming heads up. Hindi lahat kailangan biglang ikakasal na agad. Kailangan meron kang knowledge about it, kailangan prepared,” she said.
