Heart Evangelista shares first ultrasound images of baby

MANILA, Philippines – Soon-to-be-mom Heart Evangelista on Thursday, May 17, shared a bittersweet tale to accompany the first ultrasound image of the baby she's carrying. 

Heart, who is married to Senator Francis Escudero, said that during their first ultrasound exam, they found out that she was initially carrying twins. But they eventually lost one of the embryos because one was "smaller and behind in terms of development." 

"Our hearts were heavy at the thought but we knew we had to focus on the good. This is the first photo of the twins where you can see the other embryo who is healthy and showing more positive signs of development," said Heart, who married the senator in 2015.

"If there’s one thing I’ve learned about Motherhood this early on it’s that it won’t always be sunshine and butterflies, sometimes there will be cloudy moments. But it’s these ups and downs that I know will make me a stronger Mom. We now have a little angel up there and I trust that God is with us on this beautiful journey. I have to thank my wonderful husband who really has been my partner through it all. There is no one else I would rather do this with," she added. 

Heart announced last week that their family would be getting a little bigger. 

The senator has two children from a previous marriage. – Rappler.com
