  • Before becoming a mom, Nikki Gil never put much thought into the concept of "me time."

    "I was living for myself then," the mother of one told PEP.ph at the recently-held Sweet Escape event in Bonifacio Global City.

    But now, the circumstances have changed for her.

    She says, "I'm trying to keep a human being alive. That typical cliché."

    The former actress-singer and her husband BJ Albert have a one-year-old son named Finn.


    What does Nikki do during her me time?

    "Well, I went back to school," she replies.

    In 2016, Nikki enrolled at The Philippine School of Interior Design or PSID, to take up Interior Design as a second course.

    "I'm on my last year, actually, of interior design. That, for me, is me time because during the hours that I'm in school, my mind is kind of there, and I'm a student."


    But whenever she's in school, Nikki doesn't stop being a mom.

    "My full attention is never there," the former MYX VJ says.

    "I'm still preoccupied with how my baby is at home. I'm still checking my phone to see if there's emergency calls or whatever.

    "Obviously, it's more difficult to do homework with him around. Stuff like that."


    Nikki graduated from the Ateneo de Manila University in 2009, with English Literature as her first degree.
