PREGNANT ON THE SET: By sheer coincidence, TV host and parttime actress Iya Villania is once more pregnant as she opens a new season of game show Lip Sync Battle.
Iya was pregnant with her first born, Primo, when the show premiered in 2016.
This time around, on the show’s third season, she’s heavy with another child, whom she hopes to deliver in August.
The baby is her second child by husband Drew Arellano.
‘I like being pregnant. I actually enjoy pregnancy,’ Iya told us during the show’s recent media launch.
She was heavy with Primo in the show’s maiden season, ‘kaya ang saya-saya ko sa set. Maybe that’s why Primo came out a happy, cheerful child.’
Primo is now all of two years. He is looking forward to his sibling in the womb.
