Nadine Samonte, who is only 33 weeks pregnant with her third baby, has been rushed to a hospital due to early contractions.

The “StarStruck” alum informed fans that she has been having early contractions, showing a photo of herself cradling her baby bump on her Instagram page yesterday, Nov. 2.


Given that her pregnancy is yet to be full term, Samonte hopes that she will not be staying in a hospital until she needs to deliver her baby. A full term of pregnancy is 39 weeks long.


“33 weeks but having contractions already. I pray na makalabas pa ako ng hospital (I pray I can get out of the hospital) today if [I’m] not gonna deliver soon,” she said. “I know Lord will be there to guide me and our little one.”

The actress experienced a similar condition back in 2019, when she was 29 weeks pregnant with her second child. Her early contractions at the time were caused by her autoimmune disease, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APAS). She is also diagnosed with the hormonal disorder polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

Samonte revealed last July that carrying her third child has been a struggle for her, as she almost lost her baby early into her pregnancy. Her PCOS and APAS causes bruising on her baby bump and puts her at risk of having a miscarriage.

Despite her condition, Samonte assured the public that she is “getting stronger” and she considers herself blessed to be pregnant.

Samonte got married to her businessman husband Richard Chua in 2013. They have two children, Heather and Titus. The actress announced last June that she is pregnant with her third child. JB
