Ain’t this the biggest showbiz surprise of the week.
Iwa Moto recently confirmed that she is now three months pregnant. The three-time FHM cover babe was recently spotted by our colleagues from PEP.ph at Alabang Town Center alongside boyfriend and baby daddy Pampi Lacson, with her baby bump showing prominently. Iwa had no choice but to spill the beans, says the report.
While she declined to give further details about her pregnancy, the Kapatid actress claims an official announcement will be made when the time is right. We stalked her Twitter for a bit as soon as news of her pregnancy broke out, but no tweets have yet been made on her behalf as of this writing.
This makes Iwa the fourth StarStruck standout-turned-FHM babe-turned-baby mommy in as many years, with Jennylyn Mercado, LJ Reyes, and Katrina Halili becoming yummy mummies in 2008, 2010, and 2012, respectively. These darlings are all growing up right before our eyes.
After all the controversies she’s been in since last year, we say this is exactly what Iwa needs at the moment—a break from the murky world of show business. We are of course pertaining to the couples’s switcheroo between Iwa, Pampi, Iwa’s ex-husband Mickey Ablan, and Pampi’s ex-wife Jodi Sta. Maria a little while back. It should also be noted that Iwa suffered a miscarriage while with Mickey. These events earned her the tag of “Controversial Babe” in our Best Babes of the Year special last year.
Besides, it's not like she doesn't aspire for this to happen. "Sabi niya mommy na lang ang itatawag niya sa akin kasi inaalagaan ko siya," Iwa once said about Pampi's son Thirdy. "I always tell him I'm not here to take her mom's place, gusto ko lang siyang alagaan." Now she has a baby on the way to call her own!
We would say to Iwa the same thing we said to Andi Eigenmann and Katrina Halili when their little bundles of joy came along: Coming out with the truth is a far better move than simply fading away and denying it. Fans will come, fans will go, but fans can and will most definitely return, so don’t you even worry about making a successful showbiz comeback later this year. With photoshoots like the one below, papaano ka ba naman namin malilimutan?
Your place among the FHM Nation will always be safe and secure, Ms. Moto. But for now, we wish you the best of luck. Congratulations!
She’ll also be having a concert with Ben&Ben
