- The actress-blogger is pregnant with twins
Saab Magalona, who is pregnant with twins, ranted on social media about experiencing a body-shaming incident recently.
KAMI learned from Saab’s post that she confronted a person who told her that she has gotten bigger.
“Yesterday somebody greeted me with ‘Ay, naging chubby ka na!’ and it took so much for me not to snap at her.
“Calmed down and after 5mins I told her, ‘You know, you really shouldn’t tell people — especially pregnant women — that they’ve gotten fat. It’s very mean.’
“I explained to her that we have no choice but to gain weight (recommended 35-45lbs for twin moms like me) for the safety of our babies and we’re already feeling self-conscious about it.
“I’m glad I controlled myself even with the hormones because I trust that most people don’t intend to be mean. They’re just pretty dense and that’s their version of chikahan or bonding.
“She apologized profusely and even sent me a text message hours later thanking me for educating her about being more sensitive. I hope God can give me more patience not to bite people’s heads off hehe,” Saab narrated.
Saab is one of the four children of the late rap legend Francis Magalona.
Her siblings are Elmo, Maxene and Frank Magalona.
She is married to her Cheats band member Jim Baccaro.
KAMI believes that we should never shame anyone’s body, whether pregnant or not!
