Kapamilya comedienne Pokwang and American actor Lee O’Brian revealed that they are having a baby girl.
The revelation was made during a gender reveal party attended by the couple’s showbiz and non-showbiz friends and family, as per a story shared by ABS-CBN.
Some of the TV personalities who were present at the party were Kapamilya actresses Kim Chiu, Bela Padilla, Angelica Panganiban, Pokwang’s fellow comedians Chocoleit, Pooh, K Brosas and Darla Sauler, head writer of the ABS-CBN morning show Magandang Buhay.
Pokwang, who is now 44, is in a delicate condition because of her pregnancy and was even required by doctors to take full bed rest. In July, she was hospitalized due to similar reasons.
Bff duties.. dinalaw ko c bff @itspokwang27 sa hospital… don't worry ok na sha, kelangan Lang nyang maging mas maingat at bawal halos gumalaw… pero ok naman si baby obrian.. pero sana include nyo naman po Sila sa prayers nyo para mas maging smooth at safe ang buong pregnancy… Salamat po! Lablablab! #friendsforlife ?????????
This is also why she had to leave “Ang Probinsiyano” for a while, and has cancelled some other commitments.
Her boyfriend noted that his priority now is the health of Pokwang and the baby, as they once had a miscarriage.
Pokwang is expected to give birth in February next year, and the couple has yet to revealed the name they are going to give their baby girl.
Pokwang has a 20-year-old daughter with a former partner. Her relationship with American actor Lee O’Brian was confirmed in January 2015. They met while working on the TFC movie “Edsa Woolworth”.
