Iza Calzado gets baby as gift at 40

Iza Calzado is celebrating her 40th birthday today, Aug. 12.

Probably the best gift she could ever receive came courtesy of a stork.

The actress took to Instagram to make the announcement.

Posting a photo of her displaying a growing baby bump, she wrote, "Then you came along. Unexpectedly. You may not have been in my immediate plans but I instinctively knew that this was THE plan."


"In my forty years I have come to discern when God is steering me to a different direction. A path I may not have thought of yet it always turns out to be the best for me. So now, I surrender to His will with no resistance."

"God’s plans are always far greater than mine and I humbly accept this new chapter of my life with a heart filled with gratitude, casting all my fears and worries aside and simply trusting in the divine timing and wisdom of life."

"They were right. Life does begin at 40. Simply put, your life begins as your mother turns forty. To know that life is growing inside me is great miracle. You are my miracle. You are my guiding light. Thank You, Lord, for the most beautiful birthday gift. Our ABUNDANCE."

Iza is married to Ben Wintle.

They tied the knot at a Palawan resort in 2018.
