Recently, “Magandang Buhay” momshie Jolina Magdangal celebrated her birthday and 30 years in the showbiz industry. Co-host momshies Karla Estrada, Melai Cantiveros, and other special guests joined Jolina as they remember how Jolina started from humble beginnings.
At the age of 9, Jolina started her singing career as a member of Ryan Cayabyab’s 14-K. In the year 1992, she was discovered by the talent manager and director Johnny Manahan and later became an ABS-CBN talent as a cast of the famous children’s show, “Ang TV”.
And because of her vibrant personality, aside from her singing career, she was able to do several sitcoms, variety shows, and movies showcasing her talent in acting.
Apart from being a singer and an actress, Jolina has been noted for her ‘fancy’ dressing, colorful outfits, and creative accessories. She became the “teen fashion icon” in the ’90s and the most charming cutie Pinay.
During her birthday celebration in “Magandang Buhay”, Jolina revealed that she is expecting her second baby.
“Yes, nine weeks na po ako at kuya na po si Pele.”
The very excited Pele had also revealed to the viewers that he will be a “kuya” when he entered the studio to greet his mom.
Jolina said that with her second pregnancy, she is more excited for Pele who will be a “kuya” soon than for her and her husband, Mark Escueta. She also claimed that it is an answered prayer.
“Thank You, Lord. Thank You talaga. Sobrang pinagpray talaga namin ito at tsaka sobrang saya ko para kay Pele, hindi na para sa aming mag-asawa,” Magdangal said.
“Ayoko ng masyadong agwat sa age dahil gusto ko medyo sila close.”
Jolina’s full name is Maria Jolina Perez Magdangal-Escueta.
Jolina married Mark Escueta in 2011.
