Actress Nadine Samonte is asking for prayers from fans and supporters as members of her family currently face critical medical procedures.
The actress made the plea in her Instagram page today, Aug. 3, where she showed two photos of her daughter Heather, happy while wearing a mermaid costume.
“I’m kinda emotional right now. I don’t know what to say or do but I know everything will be fine. Kapit lang, prayers lang (just hold on, just pray on),” she said. “Yes, we are going through a lot, hindi halata, noh (it’s not obvious, right)?”
“Pero ngayon hindi ko mapigilan emotions ko (but now I cannot control my emotions) I need your prayers,” she appealed. “Heather will have an eye surgery today, and my husband will have his angiogram this week. You guys know [that] I’m struggling also with my pregnancy but here I am fighting and trying to be strong for them, for all of us. Crying on my own so they [won’t] see how I really feel.”
She recently revealed that she is suffering from the hormonal disorder polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and the autoimmune disorder antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APAS). These disorders post a threat to her pregnancy with her 3rd baby, but the actress is staying optimistic.
Samonte married Richard Chua, son of actress Isabel Rivas, in 2013. JB
