Drew Arellano and Iya Villania are expecting their first child. The couple confirmed it themselves by posting a photo of Iya’s blossoming baby bump in their respective Instagrams.
The photo shows Iya’s hubby, Drew, pointing at the former’s bump which was painted with an Easter egg design. Iya captioned the photo: “So… Umm… Happy Easter #Eggspecting #Eggzoited #Eggciting #NewLife #ComingSoon”
Conversely, Drew posted the same photo with a caption: “I found an EGG… and FERTILIZED it! Hahahahaha! Wohoooooooo! Happy Easter it is! #EGGspecting #EGGciting #ComingSoon”
Drew and Iya were together for 10 years before tying the knot on January 31, 2014 in Nasugbu, Batanggas.
In an interview by Pep.ph, Iya revealed that they delayed having a child because they want to enjoy each other’s company as husband and wife ”to get used to adjusting, and just have fun first together as a married couple.” However, they have planned to have a baby early this year. “I’ve been taking folate, which is apparently good for [conceiving]”, Iya said in an interview late last year.
Drew and Iya are still both in show business. Drew’s first stint in showbiz on TV was in a Filipino youth-oriented series called “Click”, with his long-term girlfriend and now wife, Iya. Drew is one of the traveling hosts of the daily morning show, Unang Hirit on GMA Network while Iya is currently hosting 24 Oras “Chika Minute” segment and Lips Sync Battle Philippines, also in GMA network.
