Rocco and Melissa's baby reveal came in the form of a vlog uploaded on the couple's new YouTube channel, "Life With The Nacinos."
In the vlog, Rocco shared, "Magiging daddy na ako and si Mel, magiging isang mommy. Super happy kami, we've been trying for months."
Melissa revealed that they've been having a difficult time conceiving as she has Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), a common hormonal disorder that affects a woman's ovaries during her childbearing years.
"I had no idea na buntis si Mel," Rocco said. "Sa totoo lang, siya ang unang nakaalam with the changes sa body niya."
Melissa shared the many changes she encountered: Feeling dizzy, having certain cravings for food, and changes in her sense of smell. She said, "Sabi ko, 'Maybe this is it.'" She took plenty of pregnancy tests and noticed that the pink line got darker and darker.
Rocco shared the moment that they found out they were expecting: "Nasa taping ako noon, hindi ko alam nag-test na si Mel noon. But she had that final super accurate digital pregnancy test. Buti nalang lahat ng artista nasa location and 'di nila ako narinig and we went for that moment na magche-check."
The vlog then cuts to a recorded video call between Melissa and Rocco where they patiently waited for the results of the digital pregnancy test. Melissa said, "It was super emotional. Kasi ako din yun yung parang ano e, magco-confirm, gusto ko makita yung word na 'pregnant' doon sa digital test. Sige, gagawin ko 'to with Nico kahit video call, at least parehas kami maka-experience non, pareho namin ma-confirm."
"Mahirap kasi malayo ako sa kanya," Rocco shared. "I was alone, she was alone. Kaya yun talaga, pagsuporta sa isa't isa ay double effort. And mediyo takot ako kasi few months before, 'di tayo nakakabuo. And to finally see the word 'pregnant'–happiness!"
Apart from the vlog, the couple also shared the good news on their respective social media accounts. Rocco posted several shots of the baby's ultrasound and shared, "Because God is kind to those who wait and pray."
Meanwhile, Melissa shared, "I asked God for a new purpose in life and this was His answer. Our answered prayer @nacinorocco."
