JAJA Santiago said older sister Dindin Manabat's pregnancy is the best Christmas gift for the whole family.

The 19-year old National U star shared the joy and excitement of her sibling Dindin, who is five weeks on the family way.

Dindin, 23, who's married to former player Chico Manabat, broke the news after her Petron team lost to Foton in the championship of the Philippine Super Liga on December 5. 

"Ngayong magkaka-baby na 'yung ate ko I'm happy for her, excited na ako sa baby niya," said Jaja.

"(Pero) 'pag kapatid mo pala 'yung nagbubuntis, ikaw ang kinakabahan ng sobra-sobra, kakaiba 'yung feeling," she confessed.

Dindin and Chico are in Japan for the holidays. On her Instagram account, the elder Santiago shared that the trip to Japan was supposed to be their honeymoon, but the baby came in earlier than expected.

Jaja said that although they do not know the gender of the baby yet, the whole family is happy to see Dindin realize her dream of becoming a mother.

"Although may konting problema pero happy kami kasi natupad na ang dream niya na magkaroon ng baby," she said.
