Francesca Taruc to Her Unborn Son: Ngayong Pa Lang Mahal na Mahal na Kita

Beauty queen Francesca Taruc opens up about making tough choices after discovering her pregnancy and foregoing her Binibining Pilipinas dream.

Former beauty queen Francesca Taruc spoke about foregoing her dreams after she got pregnant. On her social media accounts last Monday, November 27, Francesca said that the past months have been tough, especially since she’s welcoming her unborn son as a single parent.

Goodbye dreams for now

Francesca began by saying it was tough with a breakup. She dropped on her second Binibini try and is laying low from her career.

Sabay sabay kong pinagdadaanan mga yan, sabay sabay kong kailangan tanggapin. Sabay sabay kong kailangan ibangon ang sarili ko sa sabay sabay na problems,” she said.

Hindi ko sinasabing problema ang pagiging buntis. Kaya nga pinili ko siya (ang anak ko) kahit mawala na sakin yung pangarap ko. Wag lang siya ang mawala sakin.”

The model and TV host said that while the pregnancy was unexpected and that she received tons of criticism, she chose to hold her head high and fight for her child.

Describing the last eight months as challenging, Francesca assured her son that she will do everything for him when he comes out.

Anak, sorry kung eight months mo rin nararamdaman ang bigat ng nararamdaman ko. Hindi mo deserve,” she said. “Patawad anak, pero promise ko sayo ginagawa ko lahat mapasaya sarili ko, para happy ka rin jan sa tummy ko. Pero minsan di ko na talaga mapigilan e.”

“Pagkalabas mo anak, makakabawi rin ako sayo. I’ll make sure palagi kang masaya. Kasi marami na agad nagmamahal sayo at ngayong pa lang mahal na mahal na kita.”

After confirming her pregnancy, Francesca shared photos of her behind the scenes of her maternity shoot and the sonogram of her son.

Francesca competed in the Miss Tourism World Intercontinental in 2019, and she won the title. In 2021, she became part of the Top 15 finalists of the Binibining Pilipinas pageant and served as the model of Araneta City.

Aside from being a beauty queen, Francesca also appeared in Sahaya and did some hosting for Willie Revillame’s Wowowin.
