Model and former Miss Universe Philippines candidate Alaiza Malinao has revealed that she’s expecting her first child.

Malinao broke the good news on Instagram.

“Ilang araw ko na iniisip pano ako susulat ng caption… pero, Yes! Hindi kayo namamalikmata, malinaw na malinaw na Inday am going to be a Mama!,” wrote Malinao along with her maternity photo.

“Andami ko pang pwedeng sabihin, pero hindi ko talaga alam kung san ako magsisimula at kung paano ko tatapusin.”

According to her, the year 2020 was “C.R.A.Z.Y.”

“I cried, I grieved, I celebrated and above all, sobrang laki ng pasasalamat ko sa suporta at pagmamahal na binigay nyo sa akin. Yun ang isa sa pinakamalaking surprise ng taong 2020 para sa akin. Gusto ko lang naman patunayan na kaya ng isang Inday ipakita kung sino sya bilang isang Pilipina, pero kahit hindi pabor ang Universe sa plano ko, pinakita nya sa akin ang kahalagahan ko. Pinaglaban niyo ko sa mga panahong hirap na hirap akong ipaglaban ang sarili ko, kaya, from the bottom of my heart, Maraming maraming Salamat sainyo!”

Alaiza also said that she’s grateful for the people who genuinely fought with her, stood by her, and those who are still walking with her through life.

“At yun na nga, totoo talagang in every pageant night, nagbabago ang buhay ng isang kandidata. Sa gabing yun, namatayan ako ng pangarap pero totoo din yung kasabihan na ‘We have to loose something precious in order to gain something priceless.'”

Beauty queens Maureen Wroblewitz, Rabiya Mateo, Kylie Verzosa, MJ Lastimosa, Pia Wurtzbach, Laura Lehmann, Nicole Cordoves, Gazini Ganados, and Janine Tugonon congratulated Alaiza for her latest milestone.

On Instagram story, she revealed that the father of her first baby is a non-showbiz guy.

“…hanggang tag lang ako sa instagram nya (nakatag sya sa post ko). Introvert sya at mas pinipili nyang maging ninja.”

On keeping her pregnancy secret for quite some time, she explained: “was only planning to keep my pregnancy a secret for one trimester pero parang nagenjoy ako na family and close friends lang muna nakakaalam. Hanggang manganak na sana ako pero hind ko na talaga natiis.”
