Moira dela Torre, in a digital press conference last Monday, revealed that she was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome or PCOS, a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age.
With this, Dela Torre said that she is currently on a special diet and is now taking her time when it comes to having a baby with her husband, Jason Marvin Hernandez.
“Gusto ko po mag-baby siguro next year or in two years. So I’m working on it now. I hope I can get pregnant naturally and hindi mahirap. Kasi iba po ‘yung polycystic ovary. I also learned recently that factor po siya kung bakit ako may depression, kung bakit ako may anxiety. Kasi nag-a-add up po talaga siya. That’s why I think women with polycystic ovaries need awareness,” Dela Torre said.
“Marami naman pong may PCOS na nabubuntis, ‘yung iba walang complications, ‘yung iba mabilis magkaroon ng diabetes. Iba-iba po. Now, I’m currently learning to listen to my body so that I can give it what it needs,” the OPM singer-songwriter added.
On January 15, last year, Dela Torre and Hernandez tied the knot on January 15 at a garden wedding in Tagaytay.
Meanwhile, after performing “Tagpuan” and “Malaya” on “ASAP Natin ‘To,” along with Zsa Zsa Padilla and Nina, ABS-CBN Star Music’s Jonathan Manalo went up on stage to hand Dela Torre multiplatinum certifications for her albums.
“First, this is the eight-time platinum award for your album ‘Malaya.’ I have here also a two-time platinum award for your single ‘Ikaw at Ako,’ and a platinum award for your current album ‘Patawad.’ That is a total of 11 platinum awards. That makes you the female OPM artist with the most number of digital platinum certifications. Your ABS-CBN Music family is so proud of you,” said Manalo, which made Dela Torre a bit emotional.
Expressing her gratitude for being a Kapamilya, Dela Torre stressed: “I’m very, very grateful for the stage that I have now and still being part of ABS-CBN. It really feels less like work and more of a family. I think that’s what all we need now. We need a family to fall back on, and I’m very grateful that I’m in ABS-CBN.”
