"I'm happy for the gift of life. Double celebration, double congratulations to me! Ito na nga, six months pregnant ako," she said on stage.

The Tawag ng Tanghalan celebrity grand champ jokingly apologized for not giving her all during her performance, because of her "painful belly."

"Pasensiya na ha, hindi ako makabuga ang sakit talaga ng puson ko. Kaya nahiharapan ako kumanta, parang lalabas yung bahay-bata ko," Ethel added.
