Take Maternity Fashion Inspo From Tricia Centenera And Lara Quigaman
Moms-to-be need not tone down their style and fashion game when their belly starts growing! If you’re hitting a wall when it comes to creating your new maternity style, take some cues from Tricia Centenera and Lara Quigaman Alcaraz, who prove that having that bump shouldn’t stop you from dressing well! You can go to a party, dress smartly for work, or even don your bathing suits!
Lara Quigaman Alcaraz
Lara Quigaman Alcaraz is only seven weeks away from delivery, but this woman is unstoppable! She is still taping for her daily teleserye Bagani and still manages to take care of her husband Marco and her eldest son Noah when she’s at home.
Last week, during her baby shower and gender reveal party hosted by baby brand Aprica, Lara and Marco revealed that they will be having another baby boy, and he will be named Tobias Nolan, which means “God is Good” and “Champion.” During the party, Lara came in a flowy and backless maxi dress that comfortably drapes on her tummy.
She also recently shared some photos from their Bali trip, where she donned a blue one-piece on the beach. She looks like she’s having tons of fun, and no problems carrying a 28-week-old baby! Her secret? Well, Lara has been very active, and working out a lot prior to the pregnancy. Although she is not doing as much exercise now, she has also altered her diet and has given up rice.
Lara says that she finishes taping for Bagani this August, and plans to take a break from showbiz after her delivery to focus on being a mom to Tobias. She also says that since she’s already turning 36 years old next year, she is planning to have another baby soon after Tobias, hopefully a girl this time around.
"Children are a gift from the Lord. They are a reward from Him." Psalm127:3 ?? We were thrown such a super fun gender reveal party last Sunday by @apricaph. Thank you @jennasypr! It was beautifully set up and styled by @januspartyworks and each moment was captured by @lifebyohana ?? Thank you we feel truly blessed #laralovesaprica #ApricaPH
Blogger-model and Metro Channel's Driven TV host Tricia Centenera is also doing a fabulous job with her maternity fashion style, showing more photos with her bump after she broke the news on her Instagram page on July 1.
Dear heavenly Father, I pray right now for love for my baby growing inside of me. Jesus, fill my child with Your Agape love throughout her entire life. Please, give her a heart that overflows with love for You and for others. Keep my child from loving the things of this world, such as money, immorality or even other people, more than my child loves You. I pray that my child will be a kind, compassionate and a loving person to all she meets. And I pray that my child will show love to her enemies, as well as to her friends. Jesus, please help me & my dear partner to teach my child that love is patient and love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails. Prince of Peace, thank You for loving my child with Your selfless, sacrificial, undeniable, unfailing, and unconditional love which You humbly and freely give to each of us. In Your loving name I pray, Amen - 18weeks
In a previous interview with Metro.Style, Tricia shares that this new baby with her partner is a decision they made after consulting with their pastors. She also revealed that before her July 1 post, she has been trying to stay low-key about her pregnancy to protect her baby and avoid miscarriage.
But now that the secret is officially out, her followers get to see more photos of Tricia dressing up her baby bump, still looking as fabulous as ever in figure-hugging dresses that emphasize her curves. It only shows how the mom-to-be is so excited about motherhood.

Recently, Tricia also flew to Waikiki for some well-deserved break and sun therapy, taking home with her this photo of her in a printed two-piece bikini as she lounges on what looks like an infinity pool.
Just like Lara, there’s no stopping this power woman from working while she's pregnant. In another Instagram post, Tricia teases her next guest on Driven, her show on Metro Channel where she sits down and talks to amazing and inspiring women who have gone through so much but still managed to move forward.
