The seasoned actress broke the news during an event for Fortima.

Dimples Romana is pregnant with her third child. 

Dimples couldn’t help but feel emotional after announcing her pregnancy. She didn’t disclose more details about the baby, but she did show her baby bump onscreen. She also revealed that they will choose a baby name that starts with the letter E since her family’s initials spell out “ABCD.” This stands for Alonzo, her youngest son who’s now seven years old; Boyet, her husband; Callie, her 18-year old daughter; and Dimples herself.

“For the last three decades, every decade ako nanganganak,” she quipped. “No joke—2003 si Callie, 2015 si Alonzo, and 2023 si baby E. Sobrang excited ako to experience becoming a mom at this age. I’m at my happiest, and at the same time iba’t-iba ang edad ng mga anak ko at iba-iba rin ang personalidad nila.”

(“I gave birth every decade for the last three decades,” she quipped. “No joke—Callie was born in 2003, Alonzo in 2015, and baby E will arrive in 2023. I’m very excited to experience becoming a mom at this age. I’m at my happiest, and at the same time my kids’ ages and personalities are different.”)

Dimples was glowing during the event, prompting host DJ Chacha to say, “Grabe, ang ganda mong buntis, girl.”

Dimples revealed that taking Fortima (which includes Vitamins E and C plus Zinc) helped her to feel and look good. She takes two tablets per day because it’s safe for expectant mothers.

“Feeling ko malaking factor din na I was on the right track of building up my immune system and taking care of my body. When I started taking Fortima, that was when the journey began,” she said.

“All these things, lahat ng blessings na ‘to came about because alam ng pamilya namin at alam ni Lord na we are physically ready for all the challenges that we’re about to take on,” she added.

“All these things, these blessings, came about because my family and the Lord know that we are physically ready for all the challenges that we’re about to take on,” she added.

Dimples also admitted that her pregnancy came as a surprise to her and her family.

Hindi ko na hiningi, ‘yun yung pinaka nakakaiyak. Kasi para sa amin ni Boyet sapat na. Pero with the coming of baby E, I feel like it’s a great way to begin another journey as a mom,” she said.

(“I didn’t ask for this, that’s why I’m so emotional. Because my husband Boyet and I felt content with our family. But with the coming of baby E, I feel like it’s a great way to begin another journey as a mom,” she said.)

She then gave advice to those who want to be happy. 

“If you want to experience more joy in your life, I suggest you go on a health and wellness journey. Not just by taking care of your mental health but also your emotional and physical health. If you do, everything else will follow,” she said.
