Actress Sheena Halili is set to welcome a daughter as first child with husband Jeron Manzanero. 

On their respective Instagram account, the two expecting shared behind-the-scenes clip taken during their intimate gender reveal party held at home.

“Normally, in this patriarchal society that you’ll be born in, families would want their firstborn to be a boy. Why? Perhaps to continue their family name, protect his future younger siblings, etc.,” he started. “But let me tell you a secret—your dad always wanted a girl.”

“Alam ko kasi you’ll be malambing, kikay, sweet, and loving. Those are the traits that I love about your mommy, which I’m sure you’ll have din when you grow up!”

Jeron expressed “excitement” over becoming a “#GirlDad.”

It was last month when Bulletin Entertainment reported about Sheena’s first pregnancy, several months after they tied the knot.

Back then, the first episode of Jeron’s video “How You Met Your Parents” was about the first time saw their baby’s sonogram.

According to Jeron, it’s the “worst” and the “best” of times.

“Worst of times, because, well, there’s #Covid19 and all the humans in the world are #quarantined. You can google it up, or you’ll eventually learn it in your History Class. So, yeah, pretty much everyone’s bummed out about it,” he explained. “Best of times, well, because God gave us YOU!”

Jeron declared that as early as now, their baby already means the world to them.

Sheena and Jeron married in February 2020.
