Ryza Cenon is expecting a baby! The 32-year-old VIVA star revealed the big news during an exclusive interview with Pep.ph yesterday, June 30. “Buntis po ako,” she said, noting that she is now on her fifth month of pregnancy.
According to Ryza, she decided to share it with the public so she won’t have to hide: "Kung hindi ko rin naman po kasi aaminin ang totoong sitwasyon ko, ako rin naman po ang mahihirapan. Kapag lalabas ka, kailangan mo pang magtago. Mas maganda yung wala kang iniisip kung lumalabas ka or may gusto kang gawin,” she explained.
The father of her baby is her current beau, Miguel Antonio Cruz, a cinematographer from Bacolod City who is now based in Manila.
On why she decided to keep her relationship private until now, Ryza said: “Nag-decide rin po kasi ako na i-private na lang siya. Parang before, di ba, yung naging relationship ko na non-showbiz. Parang ngayon, ganun na lang din po ang ginawa ko. Kasi po si Miguel, private rin po kasi na tao, kaya nirerespeto ko yun.”
The two met in gJune 2019 after having gone to Belgium for her teleserye, ABS-CBN’s The General’s Daughter. The two were introduced by Ryza’s friend, and he courted her for approximately seven months, she said.
Ryza took to Instagram to share the news as well. Hours ago, she posted a photo clad in an all-black ensemble, flaunting her baby bump. “It’s the small moments that make life big. Happiness is on the way,” she writes in the caption.
Another photo compared her pre-pregnancy body to her current momma bod, and obviously, she looks amazing as always!
Congratulations, Ryza and Miguel!
