IYA Villania will be delivering her and Drew Arellano’s third baby soon and her “24 Oras” family, where she handles the Chika Minute portion, made a surprise video for her where friends, co-workers and family members delivered their own feel good messages and greetings for her.
Says her “Mars Pa More” co-host Camille Prats: “Iya is fun to work with kasi she's naturally funny as in almost every episode, imposibleng wala siyang masasabi na hindi nakakatawa. Now, kailangan mo namang maranasan kung ano ‘yung dynamics ng may anak na babae kasi sobrang galing mong mag-alaga ng dalawang boys.”
Iya was so touched, specially when other celebrities greeted her, like Judy Ann Santos and hubby Ryan Agoncillo, Suzy Entrata and hubby Paolo Abrera, and of course, her own husband who appeared with their two sons, Primo and Leon. Drew said: “We just want to let you know that we love you so much and we can’t wait for the third baby. We’re rooting for you and have a safe delivery.”
And what can Iya say about all the well wishes:?“I want to thank everyone for their encouraging messages, but I have a feeling it’s going to be another boy. May konting takot din with the whole COVID thing that’s been happening. I’m just praying for a safe delivery and a healthy baby and to be able to recover right away para balik-trabaho kaagad!”
Iya, along with Camille and Solenn Heusaff will host new special episodes of “Mars Pa More” for their anniversary week starting this coming July 27, 8:50 AM after “Unang Hirit” on GMA-7. Iya and Drew’s marriage is one of the more stable unions in the fickle world of showbusiness and the reason can be seen in Drew’s message when Iya celebrated her birthday recently.
He declared: “Happy birthday to the strongest and sexiest mama I know! Oh, the best multi-tasker too - one hand carrying two kids, the other scratching her head out of frustration with my cleanliness! Thank you so much for helping me clean the office! Konti na lang! Wohoooooo!🤪 Love you Marie Kondo ng buhay ko! @iyavillania.”
About Drew, his own award-winning infotainment, learn from home show, “AHA!”, is now seen four times a week. You can watch it 8:25 AM every Wednesday to Friday and at 8:15 AM on Sunday.
