  • Since announcing her pregnancy in mid-November 2020, Phoemela Baranda has been proudly showing off her baby bump on social media. 

    The 40-year-old model/TV personality/host, who’s pregnant for the second time after 20 years, recently shared a series of photos taken during a vacation in an upscale resort in Palawan.

    Phoemela wore sexy swimwear and wowed her Instagram followers. It brought us back to her revealing photo shoot on fashion website Preview for her pregnancy announcement.

    In Palawan, Phoemela donned a light-colored one-piece in a photo shot between the blue sky and blue sea. She said in the caption that she’s 24 weeks pregnant.

    While walking on the beach, Phoemela glowed in her printed two-piece bikini with the perfect background of sun, sea, and a long stretch of white sand. “Baby stroller,” she said in the caption.

    The soon-to-be mom of two turned playful in another shot of her sporting a pink bikini top, printed skirt, and beige beach hat. She poked fun at her big belly with this caption: “Burp”

    In her Preview interview, Phoemela said her pregnancy was planned. She and her partner Jason Chuachoy, a businessman and pro race car driver, had been talking about having a child. (Read the story here.)

    Phoemela had her firstborn, Kim Nichole Baranda, when she was 19 and just starting a career in modeling. (Read the story here.)

    Kim joined her mom in the trip to the Palawan beach, where she celebrated her 22nd birthday.

    Phoemela posted a photo with Kim holding a cake. She told her daughter in the caption, “Got your back, always.”


    A few days earlier, Phoemela greeted Kim a happy birthday on Instagram. She also expressed her love to her panganay, saying how proud she is of how Kim has grown from a “little cute girl to the woman you are now.”

    She also called her daughter “my pillar, my best friend, soon to be ate” and wished the birthday girl “all the best in the world.”
