The actress kept her pregnancy away from the public through most of 2020. She first confirmed the news to Daily Sun and slammed those who were hoping that she’d have a baby boy.
"It’s the same feeling I felt when I had my two daughters, so this experience is nothing new. People have been saying they hope I’m carrying a boy, but we’ll see. I look forward to giving birth to a child. I don’t care if it’s a boy or a girl, as long as it’s not an animal,” said Manaka.
“Boys and girls are equally important and have different functions in society. “I don’t believe that boys are necessarily better. According to society and cultural norms, they’re carriers of legacies. Girls also bring kids into this world.”
