MANILA, Aug 17 (Mabuhay) – After revealing that she’s pregnant, actress Iza Calzado said her current situation is a humbling one.

“It’s so humbling na you’re so used to this kind of energy level and then suddenly it’s here and nako ‘yung weight gain. I’ve just gotten to a point na after the Darna training na I was just eating and Ben was like are you eating enough? I was getting thinner and thinner,” Calzado said in a television interview.

“For the first time in my life I wasn’t starving myself or on this crash diet. I found my flow and I was at my leanest and suddenly you’re like putting on weight again and sabi heto na naman tayo sa body love. Ibang level ‘to ng surrender,” she added.

Calzado also said that she’s more careful with her body now that she’s expecting.

“I was also mindful na not to push my body too much because I am very well aware that this could be a difficult pregnancy and again babalik ako sa gratitude kasi sobrang grateful ko na in-allow ako ng katawan ko, ng Panginoon, ng aking baby abundance to do the things that I’ve been doing,” she said.

Calzado and Wintle got married at a resort in Palawan in 2018.

Currently, Calzado is part of ABS-CBN’s “Mars Ravelo’s Darna: The TV Series.” She portrays “the first Darna” who will pass on the superheroine’s powers to her daughter Narda, portrayed by Jane de Leon. (MNS)
