Kylie Padilla released a birthday video for her son, Alas, who turned two yesterday, August 4. She got emotional expressing how wonderful it is for her and husband Aljur Abrenica to have a blessing in Alas. The actress also confirmed rumors they’re expecting baby number two, and announced that it’s going to be another baby boy!
“I think it’s an open secret everybody knows. But yes, we are expecting our second child,” Kylie said at the end of the video she uploaded on her YouTube channel to mark Alas’ second birthday. “My husband and I are expecting our second child, and we are equally as happy,” she said.
Kylie is already 22 weeks pregnant. “I am feeling scared and nervous to have two little ones, but I am more excited for the new adventure coming our way,” she wrote. She admitted her being pregnant again was “a surprise but a perfect one.”
“I am happy that Alas now has a sibling,” Kylie added in the text shown in the video. “The best part about my childhood was that I had two sisters who are now ultimately still my bestest of friends,” the soon-to-be momma of two added.
Apart from the confirmation that she’s expecting, she also revealed that Alas will be having a baby brother. The original plan was to have a gender-reveal party, but Kylie already knew just by looking at her ultrasound scan. She let Aljur in on the secret by having him pop a balloon that erupted in blue and white confetti.

“All the while, we all thought it was a girl, which is absolutely hilarious. Even I thought it was a girl because I was much more emotional during this pregnancy,” Kylie shared. On Instagram, she mentioned that apart from the emotional ups and downs, she has had to deal with prenatal depression, more frequent anxiety attacks, strange dreams, and clinginess during her second pregnancy.
“We’re happy with anything,” Kylie said, and Aljur’s reaction showed it, too — both surprise and acceptance that he’s going to have another one. “I’m just happy that I have a new blessing to get to know another new person, another little one that’s going to teach me so many things — and he already has,” she added.
Kylie considers her first pregnancy a journey into growing spiritually. With this second one, the actress is trying to be more healthy and more physically active.“It’s so amazing. I can’t believe I’d grow into this person that I have because of my children,” Kylie said.
“Every pregnancy is different. But every pregnancy, for me, has changed me in the best way. We are so happy; our little family is growing,” she wrote on Instagram.
