Ryza Cenon started the second half of the year with a big announcement.
She is expecting a baby! The 32-year-old VIVA star revealed the big news during an exclusive interview with press people.
“Buntis po ako,” she said, noting that she is now on her fifth month of pregnancy.
According to Ryza, she decided to share it with the public so she won’t have to hide: “Kung hindi ko rin naman po kasi aaminin ang totoong sitwasyon ko, ako rin naman po ang mahihirapan. Kapag lalabas ka, kailangan mo pang magtago. Mas maganda yung wala kang iniisip kung lumalabas ka or may gusto kang gawin,” she explained.
Ryza also shares the good news through her social media account.
“It’s the small moments that make life big. Happiness is on the way,” she writes in an Instagram post, adding the hashtags #prayersanswered, #godsgift, and #newjourney.
In the same interview, Ryza shares that she first found out she was pregnant in April 2020. “April 3 po, nag-P.T. (pregnancy test) ako, pero hindi po siya malinaw. Kasi ‘yung isang guhit, malabo. April 9 ko na po nalaman na pregnant po ako,” she says, admitting that it is a quarantine baby.
Despite the unplanned pregnancy, Ryza confidently says she is ready to be a mother.
“Dati pa naman po, ‘di ba, ‘yun naman po ang hinihiling ko [a baby]. Kasi minsan na-fe-feel ko na na-pe-pressure ako sa mga friends ko, na ako na lang po [ang walang baby],” she tells PEP.ph.
Ryza also gave details regarding the father of her baby.
The father of her baby is her current boyfriend, Miguel Antonio Cruz. He is a known cinematographer from Bacolod City who is now based in Manila.
The two met in June 2019 after having gone to Belgium for her teleserye, ABS-CBN’s The General’s Daughter.
