A lot of people have been speculating that the older daughter of beauty mogul Dr. Vicki Belo is expecting, based on her photos on Instagram and the congratulatory messages some of her friends have been sending her. Cristalle Belo-Pitt, however, has remained tight-lipped about the matter or, at best, has given vague answers. But now, the secret is out of the bag!
"Finally letting you guys into a secret we've been keeping... by July, we'll be having a baby!" the soon-to-be mom wrote on Instagram. Cristalle and husband Justin Pitt are featured on the cover of a glossymagazine this month. And it's going to be a baby boy! Cristalle might have given a clue in a recent interview with Pep.ph, where she said they want three kids: "The first one, for sure, is the boy and then girl after. Parang kami ni kuya, di ba."
During the Belo Smiles event held at SM Megamall last Tuesday, March 13, Smartparenting.com.ph sat down with Dr. Vicki to ask if she and husband Hayden Kho, Jr. have plans for another baby. She initially said there were none. "I promised my kids no. Well, I'm waiting to see how close Scarlet will be with the son of Cristalle," she added, obviously happy and excited about Cristalle's pregnancy.
The soon-to-be grandma also shared to the world her happiness through social media. "My @cristallebelo and @justinpitt77 are having a baby!" Vicki wrote on Instagram. "So excited because @scarletsnowbelo will have a new playmate!" she added. We think she'll make a great tita to her soon-to-arrive nephew!
In the previous interview with Pep.ph, Cristalle said she thinks she'll be a cool mom. "I think I'll be a cool mom kasi Justin, my husband, is a little bit more parang stricter than me," she said. Thanks to her three-year-old sister Scarlet Snow, she's had some practice. "I bring her sa lahat ng mga activities. I play with her so at least right now, nakaka-practice na ako sa pagiging isang parent," she said.
Vicki, on the other hand, knows this for sure when she included it in her letter to Cristalle, published in a compilation book, Letters to My Children. "You are the best daughter any mom could ask for, and the best role model for Scarlet. Because of this, I know you will also be the best mom to my future grandchildren. I can’t wait to meet them, Darling," she wrote.
In 2016, Cristalle and Justin were married in a civil ceremony on September 8, before jetting off to Italy to tie the knot again on September 15, at Villa Erba, located at the chic village of Cernobbio in Lake Como.
