Nikki Valdez disclosed that she’s still in the process of healing after losing her baby last year, which was conceived through in-vitro fertilization.

Valdez talked about how she and her husband planned on having another baby after she was asked by TV host Melai Cantiveros about their IVF journey. Valdez was a guest in an episode of the morning show “Magandang Buhay,” as seen on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s YouTube channel today, March 9.

“It was last year when we lost our baby. Talagang pinagdasal namin ‘yon, pinag-usapan namin nang mabuti (We really prayed for it, talked about it thoroughly) and we felt that we were led to it like in everything — financially, emotionally. Sabi namin (We told ourselves) why don’t we give it a try,” she said.

The actress-singer also admitted that she came to a point where she doubted their decision but stressed that she has no regrets taking their chances.

“Merong times pa rin na I keep thinking to myself na, ‘Dapat ba ginawa namin ‘yon? Dapat ba hindi na lang at inenjoy na lang namin ‘yung kung anong meron kami?'” she recounted. (There are still times when I keep thinking to myself, “Should we have done that? Should we have not and just enjoyed what we have now?”)

“Because as everyone knows, I’m very blessed to have Luis in my life as my partner in raising Olivia whom he considers his from the very beginning,” she added, referring to her husband Luisito Garcia and her daughter from a previous relationship, Olivia.

Valdez then spoke about how she’s leaving everything up to God, adding that she would gladly accept whatever His will is for her and her family.

“Ngayon nasa journey pa rin ako ng trying to pray for kung ano talaga ‘yung path na gusto ni Lord na matahak ko. Nasa healing stage pa ako,” Valdez said. “There are so many days na hindi ko lang pinapansin pero ngayon, no regrets because at least sinubukan namin.”

(I’m still in the journey of praying for the path that God wants me to take. I’m still on the healing stage. There are so many days that I just ignore, but now, no regrets because at least we tried.)

“I pray for the total healing of my heart at tsaka kung talagang si Olivia lang ang regalo sa amin ni Lord (and if Olivia is the only gift the Lord has for us), I will accept it and I will forever take care and love Olivia,” she added.
