  • Isabelle Daza writes another children's book.

    Remember her animated book explaining COVID-19 in April 2020?

    This time, the soon-to-be mother of two reveals in her Instagram Stories that her project is an "autobiography" of sorts.

    It focuses on Isabelle's relationship with her long-time nanay Yaya Luning.

    "Yaya Luning is part of our family," the actress-host writes. "I wanted to come from the point of view of someone who grew up with a yaya."

    This children's short story intends to show the "dynamic of having a yaya in a family unit." It also explains how yayas don't "replace the role of the mother."

    The daughter of Gloria Diaz says, "I know a lot of moms feel guilt or shame when the child chooses the yaya / nanny over them sometimes."

    Through the book, Isabelle wants to "convey that a yaya has a special place in a child's heart."

    She also wants to give "dignity to the yayas out there who selflessly dedicate their lives caring for their 'alagas' / other children."

    Isabelle, who holds a degree in Early Childhood Education, adds that nannies "need love and care as well."

    The book shows their "family dynamic."

    When things are done right, a mom-yaya-kid relationship will be harmonious and enduring.

    She is thinking of self-publishing the children's book.

    Back in college, she also wrote a children's book dedicated to her beloved yaya. It was a school project.
