Five best friends in Davao City get pregnant at the same time


From matching backpacks in high school to pajamas at slumber parties, five best friends took their friendship to the next level by becoming pregnant at the same time.

In a photo taken by Marvin Ponce, the group of friends proudly displayed their baby bumps, including ultrasound photos of their child.

Cherley Mae Nicolas stated that she and her friends had known each other since high school and had been friends for 12 years.

They didn’t intend to have children on a specific date, according to Cherley Mae Nicolas. Some even kept their pregnancies a secret until one of them revealed it on their friendship monthary last August 13.

“‘Yung day na ‘yon, nagsabi siya sa amin na ‘Day, I have news. Buntis ako.’ Tapos ‘yon, natawa na lang kaming lahat. Sunod-sunod nagsabi na, ‘Ako rin.'” Nicolas told Mav Gonzales on “24 Oras Weekend.”

They decided to go on a maternity shoot and flaunt their baby bumps to commemorate the happy coincidence. Even their photographer, Marvin Ponce, was taken aback when he learned of their story.

“Na-excite ako kasi first time ko nag-shoot ng group picture na maternity at mag-friends pa sila. Nag-wonder talaga ako kung paano nagsabay-sabay silang buntis,” Ponce said.

“Simple remembrance lang kasi talaga ang purpose ng shoot. It turns out na maraming natuwa…” ayon naman kay Cherley Mae.

Some of the women in the friend group are already expecting their second child. In fact, the birthdays of their first children are also close together.

Since 2009, the women have been best friends. With new members of their family on the way, they promise to keep their friendship alive so that their children can grow up to be just like them.
