Why Broadcast Journalist Mariz Umali Can't Have A Baby Yet With Hubby Raffy Tima

MARIZ UMALI has been married to GMA broadcaster Raffy Tima for a year now. So how is it so far?“Masaya, no regrets,” she says. “Magkasabay kami pumasok sa GMA every morning. I’m truly thankful that we’ve been friends muna for ten years before we decided to get married.”  Read also, Broadcasters Raffy Tima And Mariz Umali To Tie The Knot In December.

Has she discovered anything new about Raffy since they tied the knot? “Nothing. After ten years, kilala ko na talaga siya.”

Any plans to have a baby soon? “As of now, hindi puede kasi when I covered the missing Batak tribe in the mountains of Palawan, malamok so pinainom ako ng anti-malarial medication. Kailangan daw paraanin ang several months before I conceive kasi the medicine can affect the baby. So, next year na lang.”

Mariz does flash reports and the weekend newscast “Balitanghali”, but she now hosts a new docu-reality show,“Out of Control”, which presents case studies of people with weird or strange behaviour. This will start airing next Saturday, November 30, and she’s co-hosting it with Rocco Nacino.

“I thought konti lang ang mga taong may ganitong bizarre disorders but it turned out marami pala ang nagsa-suffer from these strange compulsive-obsessive maladies,” she says. “This is the first time this will be tackled on local TV and the big challenge for us hosts is making our subjects open up to us and presenting their peculiarities without turning them into caricatures. In the end, we aim to help them para magamot ang kanilang kakaibang obsessions and paranoia.”
