1. Sancho delas Alas’s girlfriend suffers miscarriage
Actress and TV host Ai Ai delas Alas confirmed that her being a grandmother is on hold for now. Her son Sancho delas Alas and his girlfriend Shanna Retuya had lost the baby due to a blighted ovum. “Naiiyak ako,” she said to Pep.ph when she delivered the news while Shanna was undergoing an operation in a hospital in Mandaluyong City. A blighted ovum is caused by chromosome abnormalities that result in the embryo not developing properly. Last month, Ai Ai expressed her excitement to being a lola, and had even bought baby stuff. Sancho and her girlfriend were also excited to be parents. The family is in the process of healing. Ai-Ai and Shanna posted uplifting messages on their Instgram accounts. (pep.ph)
