Jessy Mendiola is considered one of the sexiest actresses of her generation, but even she confesses to having body insecurities during her pregnancy.
In a recent vlog, Mendiola said there are times when she does not feel like herself anymore.
Nonetheless, Mendiola knows all her body changes will be worth it when she finally gives birth to her first child.
Mendiola and her husband Luis Manzano revealed the pregnancy last August. The two tied the knot in February 2021.
Addressing people who might find her ordeal too shallow, Mendiola said in her Instagram Story that being pregnant is a great blessing but it is also a huge sacrifice “especially if you’ve struggled with body image during your whole life.”
“I’ve accepted that my body will change regardless of how much I try to live in the past. To all the expectant moms out there like me, remember… you have a growing HUMAN inside of you. It’s not easy, but it’s WORTH IT.”
