Judy Ann Santos is two months pregnant and will be a mother in seven months time. This report was confirmed by her husband Ryan Agoncillo on a noontime show Eat Bulaga.
The newly wed couple waited the result before they make an official announcement and yesterday the results came out. Judy Ann is pregnant! She was tested positive at the Asian Hospital in Alabang two weeks ago.
Ryan said that there’s no single word to describe his excitement when he first heard the heartbeat of their baby. He simply said, “AYOS” when he knew that he’ll be a father very soon!
Congratulations Judy Ann and Ryan!
