“Nanay (Mom) will always make sure that you have a heart for people and joy in the Lord,” she added. “I can’t wait to meet you, anak (my child). Ngayon pa lang, mahal na mahal na kita.♡ (Even this early, I already love you so much.)”

Rita’s onscreen partner, Ken Chan, also posted on his own Instagram page to congratulate Rita on this new chapter in her life and to assure her that he will always be there to help and support her.

“To you and your baby, miracles are worth their weight in gold, if not many times more. I’m here if you need anything at all, as a friend, as someone you can always rely on. I pray to God for the utmost positivity, protection, support and love to surround you and your baby,” he said.

“As a friend, as someone who cares, I’ll always be here for you no matter what. You’ve always been incredible and strong, and certainly, You. You’ve got this, and without a doubt, you will only continue on to be that much more incredible, always. I am so proud of you.”
