Sen. Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr. said Wednesday he and wife, actress Lani Mercado, thought that daughter Inah, who is expecting her first child, was to give birth on Monday.
Revilla, however, said it was just false alarm.
“Actually, akala namin manganganak yung aking anak the other day, pero false alarm pala,” Revilla said an interview Wednesday on radio dzMM’s “Talakan.”
Reports said Inah is due to give birth to a baby girl on October 1, but the Revillas said the baby might come out earlier, maybe even coincide with the senator’s birthday.
The actor-turned-politician is turning 42 on Thursday, September 25.
During Mercado’s 40th birthday in April, Revilla confirmed that his 18-year-old daughter Inah and then boyfriend Vince del Rosario were tying the knot because of the baby.
The confirmation came amid speculations about the real reason behind the hastily-planned wedding. The two got married in May.
When asked about his political plans for 2010 elections, meanwhile, Revilla said nothing is definite yet. He said he is focusing on his work right now.
“Wala pa, [di pa] sigurado kung tatakbo tayo," he said. "Pero as of now, ayaw ko munang pag-usapan ang politika."
