The post stated, “17 weeks and counting…I wish we could have shared it earlier but you know they say it’s bad luck to announce too soon. I’m so excited to finally tell you that we have a little ‘McGregor’ on the way! You know how much I value “you” as you’ve been such a support through my various ventures so I wanted you to know first-hand as this one is perhaps my most exciting to date! I feel truly blessed and am more amazed everyday to experience our creator in such a miraculous and organic way. Seasoned mommy’s, don’t hold back on the advice…hehe *wink* Love, Blessings…and Life :)”

I have always been an extremely driven person and so is Daniel and we remain committed to our goals….”
The Daddy-to-be ‘Chino’ who is also the father of a 3 year old girl, sources say, also shared his sentiments of the recent news, “I am an extremely private person, but anyone who knows me knows that I am an extremely family-oriented person. That’s how I grew up, so putting family first has always come naturally to me” He added, “I am very excited about the upcoming birth of my son or daughter. Yendi is an extremely responsible person and we were ready for this move, so I feel comfortable, excited and ready because she is a great partner and I have no doubt she will be a great mother who will help to instill positive values in our baby.”
Miss Philips also revealed that the two have talks of marriage in their future, with their careers and the birth of their baby uppermost right now.
