Luis and Jessy expecting a baby girl

The betting is over.

Talo ako,” Jessy said, referring to her bet that their child — fondly called Peanut in the early stage of her pregnancy — would be a boy.

Luis, who wanted a girl, got his wish.

Meanwhile, the 41-year-old actor-TV host’s celebrity mother, former Batangas 6th district Rep. Vilma Santos, couldn’t contain her excitement and said, “Anak, I’ve been waiting for this for so long. Now that it’s coming sooner, we are all excited for Peanut, we’re all praying for Peanut.”

Luis addressed the baby: “You know, mommy and I will do our best to raise you, for you to be a blessing to other people.”

Known for his wacky sense of humor, Luis jested he will be an extremely strict and protective father: “Puwede ka lang lumabas after nine months, after that no more na.

Nag-re-ready na ang barkada, ang bahay namin hindi ko lalagyan ng pinto, puro pader lang para walang makadalaw, walang makapasok!

He didn’t let up, saying his baby will get some sun only when she turns 62.

Jessy, 29, joined showbiz in 2007 and signed up with talent management firm Star Magic of ABS-CBN, where she met Luis.

The couple started dating in 2016, officially got engaged on 12 December 2020, and got marred on 21 February 2021.
