Comedienne Melai Cantiveros confirms she’s pregnant



MANILA, Philippines—The rumor is true. Comedienne Melai Cantiveros is pregnant by her boyfriend Jason Francisco.

“Positive na positive,” a beaming Melai told television host Boy Abunda when asked about the pregnancy rumor.

She was two months pregnant, Melai revealed in an exclusive interview on entertainment talk show The Buzz on Sunday.

The 25-year-old actress admitted how excited she was when she learned about her pregnancy.

“Sobrang pagka-happy. Nong malaman ko hindi talaga ako kinabahan. Kase gusto naman talaga namin ni Jason,” the Big Winner of the 2009-2010 episode of reality television show “Pinoy Big Brother” said.

“Nong magbalikan kami parang gusto na talaga naming i-level up ang aming relationship,” Melai said.

Their romance began while they were “housemates” on Pinoy Big Brother: Double Up.

But the celebrity sweethearts broke up in February 2012 with Melai accusing Jason of having another girl. The “Boy Astig ng Mindoro” successfully won her heart back last June.

Now the two are planning to tie the knot in church.

“Pag-uusapan sa GenSan,” said the 25-year-old Jason, referring to Melai’s hometown of General Santos City. “Gusto nila sa simbahan.”

Asked by Abunda how Jason made the wedding proposal.

“Sabi ni Jason, magmumog ka. Pagtingin ko sa salamin sa CR, nakasulat ‘I  love you… Will you marry me,” an ecstatic Melai revealed. “Hindi na ako nakamumog.”

They burst into laughter.

Abunda queried about speculations the unborn child was either a product of their recent Singapore trip or a reconciliation baby.

“Philippines,” Jason quipped.
