Former beauty queen-turned-inspirational speaker Miriam Quiambao took to social media on Wednesday, Dec. 30, to break the news that she’s pregnant once again.

“Please pray for me. I’m positive! Positively pregnant,” declared Quiambao as she shared the good news inside a car with her husband Ardy Roberto.

Then the couple showed sonograms taken at a hospital on Dec. 26. “Sharing with you this great news before the year 2020 ends.”

Friends in show business and netizens congratulated the couple as they described the second child once again as “miracle baby.”

In August 2018, Miriam surprised the public that she was pregnant at age of 43. She said that the baby was conceived naturally.

Miriam said that she had been praying for a baby since 2014. Then she finally got pregnant in 2018.

“In June 2018, we were resigned that perhaps God will answer our prayers through the miracle of adoption or through IVF but Praise God who is the author of miracles and the creator of life! By His grace, He rewarded our faith with the greatest gift: a baby conceived naturally!!!” she said.

The Bicolana beauty queen rose to fame when she won 1st runner-up at the 1999 Miss Universe beauty pageant held in Trinidad and Tobago.

During the evening gown pre-pageant competition for the same pageant, Miriam slipped on stage and quickly stood up. She was given a standing ovation.
