'Ang Role Mo Bilang Babae, Ina, At Asawa, Napakahirap Pala,' Dennis Trillo Honors New Mom Jennylyn Mercado
  • Dennis Trillo has nothing but praise and admiration for his wife, Jennylyn Mercado, who celebrated her 34th birthday last May 15.

    On Instagram, Dennis posted a photo of Jen undergoing her emergency Caesarean section operation with 'baby D.'

    The actor wrote, "Ang role mo bilang babae, bilang ina at asawa, napakahirap pala. Bilib ako sa’yo, kasi kayang-kaya mo lahat, you make it look so easy!"

    Dennis adds, they are lucky to have Jen in their lives, and assures her that they will support her all the way. "Kaya nandito lang din kami parati para sa iyo. I love you, happy birthday mahal ko."

    Jennylyn posted an equally heartwarming birthday tribute for Dennis, who turned 41 last May 12. In it, she recognized Dennis' presence and support, and thanked him for being with her since Day 1.


    The new parents were caught by surprise when Jennylyn had to deliver via C-section after what they thought was a regular prenatal check-up.

    Their Baby D was born on April 25 weighing 5.7 lbs. The couple announced her birth in their YouTube vlog. 

    Their fans are now waiting for their new vlog, where they hope to see a face reveal of their daughter.
