Solenn Heussaff revealed just a few weeks ago that she and husband, Nico Bolzico, are now expecting. They kept the news private for a few months but a pregnancy can’t be kept quiet for too long. Since the announcement of the imminent #BabyBolz the couple has opened up about a few other things related to this part of their lives.
One thing Solenn shared with Pep.ph is the (possibly) surprising fact that the couple had waited 8 months before finally seeing a ‘positive’ result on a pregnancy test. The soon-to-be mom shared: “Every month we were disappointed. Apparently ,the more you want, the less it happens. And then parang towards March, I was taking hormone pills kasi medyo slow ako down there.”
“Nico got himself checked, I got myself checked. Went to the doctor, saw a specialist. I was even planning, ‘Okay, if by the end of the year there’s none, maybe let’s do IVF or something.’ Like I really wanted this year,” she continues.
Then, Solenn got the news they’d been waiting for while Nico was in Japan. “I found out when I was home alone. I didn’t want to test because I was scared to be disappointed again. I’ll just wait like 10 days,” she remembers. “And then I drank my coffee and it tasted like shit and I love coffee, so I was like I let it be. I didn’t want to be excited. And then again, I was so tired, so sleepy, so I was googling early symptoms of pregnancy.”
Like with anyone, Google only served to strengthen her suspicions. “I was like, ‘Oh my god! This is it! Taste like menthol…’ So, I was trying not to take the test and then Nico naman was messaging me every like 30 minutes to one hour saying, ‘Do you have your period? Do you have your period? Do you have your period?'”Solenn recounts. “I said, ‘Just wait! Girl, it can be three days to seven days late to ten days late, especially if I’m thinking about it. Too stressful. We’ll do it when you come back.'”
But then her nerves kept her from really falling asleep that same night and pushed her to take a pregnancy test at 4 in the morning. Of course, it came out positive and she was ecstatic:
“I cried and I hugged Pochola [their dog] because I was home alone. And then, I didn’t want to tell Nico because I wanted to see his reaction, because he’s been wanting it for four years actively, and I was like ‘Not ready, not ready.’
“And then he was too excited, so I just sent him a photo of the test. And then he was like, ‘What does that say? I can’t read. I don’t understand! Is it positive? Is it negative?’
“I told him, ‘Babe, you’re gonna be a dad.’ And then he was like, ‘What?’
It turns out, Solenn wasn’t even able to hear Nico’s initial reaction. “And then I was trying to call him and he was hanging up on me. I was like, ‘What’s wrong with you?'” she says. “He goes, ‘I’m in a bus full of 50 Filipinos. If you don’t want the world to know, don’t call me. I don’t know how to react.’ So there.”
They then proceeded to keep the news very hush-hush, even waiting 3 months to tell Solenn’s mom about it. “I didn’t tell anyone because I didn’t want to jinx it,” she explains.
