Jennylyn Mercado Six Weeks Pregnant

patrick garcia and jennyln mercadoABS-CBN's Star Patrol received a text message from a showbiz insider that actress Jennylyn Mercado is pregnant with the child of actor Patrick Garcia. This piece of news was soon confirmed by Mercado's own manager, Becky Aguila.

According to Garcia, he and Mercado had already gone to the Makati City Hall to consult a judge about the possibilty of a civil wedding.

“Jennylyn is 6 weeks pregnant. I want to set things right sana at panagutan siya,” said Garcia, who added that he wanted to do the right thing for his girlfriend.

After talking to the judge for over an hour, the couple decided to hold off the wedding and reconsider when the best time for the wedding would be.

“The judge said it is easy to get married, but for the right reasons daw sana. Sabi niya we still have time,” said the actor.

Garcia also said that he is taking into consideration the fact that his sister Cheska, also an actress, is scheduled to tie the knot this year. The actor is well aware of the belief in "sukob" or wedding curse.

According to Filipino belief, no marriage should happen within the family if an immediate family member has either died or gotten married within the same year. If this is not followed, disaster and tragedy will happen.

Mercado meanwhile said that she is already feeling the effects of her pregnancy. “Masakit na ang tiyan ko, nahihilo ako. Morning sickness,” she said.

The couple said that they never considered hiding the truth from the public, adding that what matters most to them is that they love each other.
