- Marco Alcaraz gave an update about his wife Precious Lara's pregnancy
- The couple is hoping to have a baby girl because their eldest child is a boy
- Precious decided to push through with her showbiz commitments while she still can
Soon-to-be daddy for the second time Marco Alcaraz is looking forward to meet his second child.
It is after 2005 Miss International Precious Lara Quigaman happily shared the good news about her pregnancy just recently.
In an interview, Marco expressed his excitement for the newest blessing they received.
They are hoping to have a baby girl.
"We’re hoping for a healthy baby girl para quota na ako," said Marco.
Yet, the actor clarified that gender is not a big issue as they thankfully welcome God's blessings.
"Pero kung ano man ang gender, blessing naman yun. Kaya kung boy or girl man, kung ano ang binigay ni Lord tatanggapin natin," he said.
According to Marco, Lara initially needed to have a bed rest as a slight hemorrhage had been detected.
But since she had prior commitments the doctor gave her medications so as she could still work while keeping the baby safe.
"Nung nalaman ng doctor na buntis siya, ang advice is bed rest. Kasi parang may konting hemorrhage. Pero siyempre hindi din siya makatanggi sa work kasi may taping kaya binigyan na lang siya ng medication, pero okay pa naman," he said.
He also added that it is Lara's choice to continue working so he gives his full support for his wife.
"Daddy duty muna ako for now. Timing din natapos ang show ko, si Lara ang may work. At least may time ako for my family," Marco said.
Marco Alcaraz is a Filipino actor, commercial model, and former varsity basketball player at San Sebastian College-Recoletos.
His first movie was Aishite Imasu 1941: Mahal Kita with Dennis Trillo.
He wed on July 8, 2012 to the former beauty queen and the winner of the 2005 Miss International, Precious Lara Quigaman.
