  • It's going to be a boy for Kaye Abad and Paul Jake Castillo!

     

    The revelation was done after the soon-to-be parents opened a big box filled with blue balloons as confetti dropped overhead. The gender-reveal party, organized by baby stroller brand Aprica, last October 8, at the Grillers Steak House in Cebu, where they are now based. 

    "I'm really happy kasi I really wanted a boy first," Kaye told the press at the party. "Siya [Paul Jake], gusto niya girl kasi feeling niya mas responsible kapag girl," the actress added. Kaye said she planned to have two kids, but her husband wanted three. "Siya gusto niya three kasi parang bitin daw kapag two. Parang walang referee kapag dalawa lang, so good luck. One down, two to go," she said. 

    The former Tabing Ilog actress, who was glowing, also believed she got pregnant after she did not feel the pressure to conceive anymore. "Nabuntis ako noong hindi na kami pressured. Yun din kasi sabi ng doktor, 'Don't pressure yourself kasi the more na ma-pressure kayo, mas may stress.' Hindi raw talaga mabubuo," Kay shared. (pep.ph)

    Before the big party, the party of five celebrated Lucho's birthday with what looked like a crepe cake with a number 7 candle.

    Kylie Padilla on how she and Aljur Abrenica adjusts to new life as parents

    Like any new mom, the 24-year-old actress admitted she was scared to hold and bathe her newborn son. It was a good thing her fiance Aljur's mom was there to help. "Sabi niya, 'Hawakan mo yung anak mo. Anak mo 'yan, kaya mo 'yan!'" Kylie recounted to Pep.ph. "Tama naman siya. Nagawa ko naman. Trinain ako ng mommy nito [ni Aljur]...'Matututo ka rin, observe ka lang, e.' Tapos, siyempre, automatic na rin yung motherly instinct, papasok bigla," she added.

    The new mom said she didn't have a role model for parenting. "We’re doing our own thing. Siyempre, kailangan yung core, sa 'ming dalawa 'yon," Kylie said. She explained that she didn't want to copy other parents' style to to keep things real and avoid putting too much pressure on themselves.

    Kylie shares Aljur would burp their baby after she finishes breastfeeding. He also takes parenting duty at night and whenever she needs to rest. "So ang nangyayari, pakain ko muna, tapos papasa ko na. Tulog na ako." (pep.ph)
