    “Wild! Ibang klase!” Kean described his wife’s second journey to motherhood. Kean singled out the challenges Chynna had during pregnancy and birth and the hurdles she has yet to overcome during the postpartum period — on top of “the nurturing, and taking care of the family.”

    In an article on Smartparenting.com.ph, Chynna, then a first-time mom, admitted breaking down when she finally accepted the reality that exclusive breastfeeding was not working out for her and her daughter. Hopefully, it works better for her this time around.

    On their first night at home, Chynna shared that she has been “thinking a lot and overcome with gratitude.” Being a parent to a newborn has always been associated with sleepless nights, and Chynna did stay up all night caring for baby Salem.
