Is Vice President Leni Robredo pregnant? This million-peso question has been asked last November, and she has categorically denied it. However, it is now being asked again after the vice president seemed to have revealed her ‘baby bump’ during the recent Christmas party at the Office of the Vice President (OVP). Have a closer look at her photos below.
A series of photos of VP Leni Robredo with OVP staff and their children were posted on her official Facebook page this Friday, December 23. You can see the smile on the faces of everyone, especially the vice president. Nevertheless, two photos caught the attention of some netizens, who suggested that she could be pregnant (buntis) after all.
One particular netizen said she sees nothing wrong if VP Robredo is really pregnant. However, another netizen contradicted her opinion, saying that the widow of the late Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Jesse Robredo is now holding the second highest position in the country, and has moral obligation to the public.
