    “I get a lot of mom guilt with Blanca,” the model and mompreneur admitted on Instagram Stories. “I sometimes feel I don’t hold her as much as compared to Bazzy,” Divine said. she recalled she always held her son until he wanted his own space at four months old.

    Divine feels guilty that she isn’t able to hole Blanca as often as she did when Baz was a newborn.

    Little Blanca’s arrival may be a surprise (she came out 10 days earlier that her mom’s scheduled C-section), but the age gap between her kids was not. Divine sought their doctor’s advice on the right time to get pregnant again, which is one year and a half from birth to birth.

    “We really want a big family for ourselves, and actually naaawa ako na mag-isa [si Baz],” the new mom of two shared in a previous interview with Smartparenting.com.ph.

    She was already pregnant before Baz turned 1 year old in May 2019. It’s just perfect timing for Divine since she didn’t want to still be pregnant over the coming holidays.
