Megan Young laughs off netizen’s ‘baby bump’ comment on her IG photo

MISS WORLD 2013 Megan Young laughed off at a netizen’s comment on her Instagram photo. The commenter asked if she was already pregnant with hubby Mikael Daez. In the picture (below, as you can see), Mikael embraces Megan from behind with one hand on his wife’s right tummy and the beauty queen-actress, in a body-hugging light green dress, holds their pet dog Soba, which Mikael kisses.

Megan’s caption: “A weekend getaway …” caught a follower’s attention and the immediate comment was: “Baby bump? Or baby belly? (with laughing-in-tears emoji)”

Megan replied with laughter, “Hahaha kanin po ‘yan tsaka chips hahahaha (That’s just rice and chips).”

Another follower also noticed the “baby bump” and wished that the former Miss World was really pregnant.

Pressures on having a baby

Megan and Mikael got married in January 2020, they were sweethearts for nine years. They had two intimate wedding ceremonies—the first was in Calaruega Church in Nasugbu, Batangas on January 10th and the other at the San Roque Chapel in Subic, Zambales on January 25th.

In an episode of the couple’s podcast on 4 August, they talked about the pressures of having a baby, particularly for newlyweds like them, where Megan shared that when she was younger, she wanted to have a family like the one she grew up with. She has two siblings, a younger sister, who is also an actress, Lauren, and a brother named Victor. But as she grew up, her desire about having three children changed.

Megan said: “I would think that since we are three, maybe I want, like, four kids in the future, but as I got older, four became three, and then three became two, and then at one point when I was in college, I was, like, maybe I just want one kid.” Her explanation: “It’s only because I wasn’t sure if I could handle it.”

“Just the two of us first”

Based on their podcast, their first consideration is how to focus on all the needs of their children, especially if they will have many; and now with this COVID-19 pandemic, the couple said it would be “scary” for Megan to get pregnant. They feel the pressure from people who repeatedly ask them if they are already ‘infanticipating.’ They would be the first to know if they are both ready for parenthood. {IA/DS}
