For Iza Calzado, the "shared blessing" of being a mom-to-be with her sister-in-law Bianca King gives her immense joy.

Iza took to her Instagram account on Saturday, Aug. 27 to share her excitement over how she and Bianca are embarking on their first pregnancy journeys at the same time. She accompanied her post with a picture of Bianca showing her baby bump with her husband Ralph Wintle by her side.

"So thrilled to be on the same journey as my sister in law, Bianca, and that Ben and Ralph get to share this experience too. Though we are miles apart, we are connected by this shared blessing," Iza wrote in the caption.

"Truly, so much to celebrate for the Wintle Family! We are all so grateful!" she added.

Iza first announced that she's expecting her first child on Aug. 12, which coincided with her 40th birthday celebration. She posted a picture of herself smiling ear to ear as she bared her baby bump.

The actress, who is starring in the new Darna series, later revealed in a separate post that she and her husband, businessman Ben Wintle are currently in Europe to go on a retreat and "mentally and emotionally prepare" for her life's next chapter.

Bianca, meanwhile, announced her pregnancy eight days later. In a recent IG post, she shared a video of her ultrasound and revealed that she is currently experiencing the symptoms of pregnancy now that she is in her first trimester.

"I felt all the classic symptoms. Hungry all the time, heartburn, frequent bathroom trips, nausea all day, sore boobies. I cried over anything. I was brattier and needier than usual. Felt like an underachieving, tired, lazy, emotional, hot mess," she wrote.

"The 1st trimester is a crucial stage in every pregnancy. It could be very isolating if you’re not ready to tell anyone. I was open with as many people as I could be. I needed the support. Just in case something happened, I wouldn’t mind sharing the bad news too. I appreciated everyone who checked up on me and were interested in my experience," she added.

Iza and Bianca both found their forever with the Wintle brothers Ben and Ralph, making them sisters-in-law.
