Sexy comedienne Rufa Mae Quinto has confirmed that she is pregnant with her first child.
Quinto made the confirmation in an exclusive interview with Korina Sanchez for her primetime program “Rated K” on ABS-CBN last September 18.
Now based in the US, Quinto said that her condition is sensitive. “Sensitibo nga at nag spotting ako nung second month ko. Na-ospital ako.’’
“Syempre ninerbyos na rin ako kung mabibigyan ko pa ba talaga s’ya ng family. Kasi ’yung age ko rin, di ba? 38 na ako.’’
Quinto who is now four months pregnant said that she feels blessed with her baby.
It’s more than two decades now since Quinto joined show business and became a member of the defunct show “That’s Entertainment” in 1994.
The actress said that she has been the financial provider for her family.
‘Kasi alam ko ’yung feeling ng wala. What you give is what you receive. Puro positivity ang secret ko in life. Hindi naman ako nag-graduate pero honor student din naman ako noong high school,” Quino said. She added that her dreams then was to buy a house for her family and send her siblings and cousins to school.
In 1997, Quinto played lead for the first time in the movie “Gloria, Gloria Labandera.” She later starred in “Booba” in 2001 and she followed it up with “Super B.”
How Rufa met Trevor
Quinto met her boyfriend Trevor Magallanes, 29, during the holidays in the US.
“Sabi nung pinsan ko ipakilala kita sa Facetime kasi ang cute eh pero hindi ko pinansin. Sabi ko naku baka ma-fall lang ako. Tapos long distance pa. Sakto January 2016 hindi ako umalis ng America. Duon ko sya na-meet. Nag-tour kami,” she recalled.
“Mabait sya at pinaninindigan nya ako. Sa kakaganun nya, nag-fall na ako sa kanya. Minsan nagda-doubt ka pa pero nagdarasal na lang ako. At saka bakit pa ako matatakot? Lagi na lang ako takot sa lovelife. So this time tinodo ko na rin,” Quinto added.
It was in February when Quinto and Magallanes decided to get married. They will tie the knot on November 25.
Asked how Magallanes proposed, Quinto said: “ He mentions all the time na ‘You have to get married na. Marrying age ka na.’ Then nagtext ako sa kanyang ‘Good morning. I think I want to get married.’ Sabi nya ‘OK.’ Ganun lang ka-casual.”
