Such is Ogie’s excitement that he has, in fact, been updating the media about her situation almost religiously. Just last Thursday, Ogie had been in a press conference for his birthday concert and he commented,“I think my wife is very, very happy. So, we’re both very happy.”
Regine had been present at the presscon but had refused to grant interviews at that time.
By Saturday, the couple was again spotted together at an event and according to the report on “The Buzz,” Regine had a bright smile and was glowing. However, it was Ogie that spoke to the reporters once again.
“Galing kaming OB kanina… five months and three weeks na. Ang dasal ko lang eh, sana patuloy ang pagiging healthy ng asawa ko, patuloy ‘yung walang komplikasyon.”
He likewise shared their experience with the pregnancy, so far. “First three months, very crucial ‘yan eh. We had to make sure that she gets enough rest para kumapit ‘yung baby. But everything is very positive, wala naman siyang dinadaing. So I’m sure that the baby would be a very happy baby.”
In the same taped interview, he revealed how hands-on he is about taking care of Regine—especially when it comes to her health.
On keeping tabs of her eating habits, he shared, “Ginigising ko rin siya kasi kailangan niya kumain. Ayokong nalilipasan siya ng gutom. So kailangan before, well, at least magising siya nang 8, makapag-breakfast siya. And then kailangan makapag-lunch din siya.”
Like the protective father and husband that he is, Ogie also noted, “Gusto ko regular ‘yung kanyang pagkain. Medyo strikto ako dun. Siyempre kailangan natin alagaan ‘yung asawa natin.”
As the couple counts down the days for the arrival of Baby Nathaniel (Nathaniel James), Ogie is reportedly leaving for Australia to visit his kids, Leila and Sarah, with ex-wife Michelle Van Eimeren (who is now married to Australian businessman Mark Murrow).
Ogie knows that it will be a very busy time for him and his wife come November, when Regine is reportedly due to give birth.
In a report on “Showbiz News Ngayon” on Aug. 5, Ogie related how his two daughters are truly concerned about Regine. “Ang sa kanila, gusto nila na si Ate Reg [Velasquez] ay maganda and ayos ang pangangatawan... and safe ‘yung baby,” he was quoted.
In the same report, he shared how his daughters reacted to the news of the baby. “Yung bunso ko sigaw nang sigaw. Siyempre excited sila na magkakaroon na sila ng baby brother,” he said.
