#DuterTripletsAreComing: Sara Duterte pregnant with triplets

Filipino netizens have been posting #DuterTripletsAreComing after news broke that Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte is pregnant with triplets.

The presidential daughter confirmed Friday that she is seven weeks pregnant.

In a statement read by city information officer Jefry Tupas, the 38-year-old mayor said her pregnancy is "delicate," the reason why she is rarely seen in public recently.

"They are doing well on their 7th week... I am having a hard time with the symptoms as well as the complications of a multifetal pregnancy," she said in her statement.

Duterte, who is married to lawyer Manases Carpio and already has two children, vowed to continue to work and perform her duties despite her pregnancy.

However, she apologized if her constituents cannot see her in crowded places. Her doctor advised her to "to lessen the chances of acquiring infections."

Following the news about the mayor's pregnancy, a fetal ultrasound scan result from Davao Doctors Hospital showing Inday Sara Duterte's triplets circulated and has gone viral on social media.
