LJ Moreno Is Seven Months Pregnant With First BabyLJ Moreno and basketball star Jimmy Alapag will finally welcome their first baby in less than three months. LJ is now seven months pregnant with a baby girl.
They are also in the process of finalizing the documents for their adoption of a two-year-old boy, who's staying with them now.
It was in November 2013 that they tried to adopt a child they saw in Ilocos Sur, but some issues stopped them from doing so.
LJ said they are both healthy and fine, and they have been trying since 2010. Their doctors told them they don't have a problem, but it's just a matter of timing. That's more frustrating, LJ said, because there's no reason why they weren't blessed with a baby earlier.
However, she understands now that everything happens in God's perfect time. It looked like they were really meant for adopting someone first because she found out she was pregnant two days after finalizing the adoption papers.
Their adopted child also knows that LJ is already pregnant, and is expecting a baby. He's excited already, LJ said.
The former actress said she was traumatized by her first trimester because she really had a hard time with it. She even joked that next time, Jimmy should get pregnant, so he would know what it feels like.
She's not thinking about the next pregnancy yet because she's focused on her baby now. This was the perfect time for them to welcome a baby because Jimmy's at the end of his career and he can focus more on their business.
As for Jimmy, he is aware that the first trimester was really hard for his wife. She's better now, though, because she went back to doing yoga.
It's back to normal for LJ except for the heavy belly. She sometimes even forgets that she's pregnant, so she runs up the stairs or carries their adopted child.
Jimmy is also excited to welcome their baby to their growing family.
