LJ Reyes and Paolo Contis are expecting a baby!
The 30-year-old Kapuso talent broke the news through her first YouTube video entitled "A Pleasant Suprise" on August 27.
In the video, LJ did a mini-quiz with eight-year-old son Aki, her child with former boyfriend Paulo Avelino.
Among the questions were: "Are You ready to be responsible?" and "Do you want a playmate?"
Aki answered yes to both questions.
However, LJ's son answered no when asked about wanting a new best friend.
That segued to LJ's good news.
She said: "Totoo, mommy's pregnant!"
In disbelief, he replied, "Why is it not moving?"
LJ explained, "It's not yet moving kasi it's small pa."
Paolo's voice could be heard in the background and seconded, "She's not [joking], she's pregnant."
Aki eventually believed LJ and Paolo.
When asked if he wants a boy or a girl, Aki said he wants a baby brother.
LJ told Aki that she's hoping for a daughter.
Aki replied, "Why a girl? That's arte."
The actress is about four months pregnant and is set to give birth in January.
