  • Yesterday, June 9, 2021, actress Nadine Samonte surprised her friends and fans when she announced that she and husband Richard Chua are expecting their third baby together!

    “Happy to announce that now we are a family of five,” the soon-to-be mom of three wrote on her Instagram. Nadine also revealed that she was on her second trimester, calling her pregnancy an “unexpected gift” based on her hashtags.

    In the photo, Richard can be seen carrying their 2-year-old son, Austin Titus, as Nadine showed off her baby bump while holding their 5-year-old panganay, Heather Sloane. There was also an equation on the wall that showed they now equaled to five.

    On his Instagram, the dad also posted the same photo and shared his excitement at their growing brood. “And just like that we’re a basketball team,” read his short and sweet caption.

    Safe to reveal the pregnancy

    In an interview with Pep.ph, Richard’s mother, actress Isabel Rivas, shared that it took the couple a while to reveal they were expecting because Nadine is experiencing a delicate pregnancy.


    “Nadine is three months preggy. We hid it kasi napaka-complicated niyang magbuntis,” Isabel said.

    “She was in and out of the hospital because of bleeding, threatened abortion, kaya complete bed rest siya. Pero now, okay na kaya nag-post na sila [sa social media],” she added.

    According to Isabel, Nadine is due in December. “Wala pang gender but we feel it’s a girl. Kawawa siya but she’s so happy,” she told Pep.ph.

    Nadine’s past pregnancies have also been challenging. She was diagnosed with antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APAS) when she first got pregnant in 2015. In 2018, she felt contractions at 28 weeks while she was pregnant with Titus. She even rushed herself to the emergency room at one point.

    Her doctors also told her that a third pregnancy would be “very, very risky,” but she and Richard still wanted to try for one if it was God’s will. In a previous interview with SmartParenting.com.ph, Nadine shared, ““Let’s see pag nag-2 years old si Titus. We want sana, pag binigay ni Lord. ’Yon ang parati kong sinasabi. It’s a blessing talaga. Kung hindi, okay lang.”

    Congratulations, Nadine and Richard!
