An emotional Ethel Booba was seen on “It’s Showtime” as she announced she’s now expecting her first child.
A far cry from her usual wacky and funny antics, Ethel was in t
ea rs on the noontime show. The comedienne admitted she and her boyfriend, Jesse Salazar are expected their first bundle of joy. The announcement came unexpectedly as Ethel was promoting her upcoming single after winning the “Tawag ng Tanghalan” Celebrity Edition.
Vice Ganda, one of Ethel’s closest friends, was teasing her to reveal something. He was teasing Ethel that it was included in the contract that she should be single while she is with them. Ethel answered, “Ay ano ba ‘yan hindi pwede. Magiging triple na nga eh.”
The “It’s Showtime” hosts were left a bit confused until Ethel explained further. She said, “I’m happy for the gift of li
fe,” then joked that she has already given birth. Vice added, “Nakapanganak na siya pero ngayon niya pa lang ipagbubuntis.”
Ethel couldn’t help but be emotional as she revealed she struggled to sing during the contest. She said, “Kaya nahirapan ako kumanta, parang lalabas ‘yung bahay bata ko.”
When the rest of the hosts finally realized Ethel was not joking, they all congratulated her for her good news. Vice shared why he convinced Ethel to share her good news to the “madlang people.”
Vice said, “Ang Pilipinas ngayon, punong-puno ng bad news kaya ‘pag merong mga good news silang naririnig, nagbubunyi talaga ang Pilipinas. Kaya kung may good news ka, kung gusto mong i-share, i-share mo kasi gusto namin ng good news.”
