The 2011 Miss Universe third runner-up is proud of her daughter Nyke's new milestone: reading!
"Couldn't be more [proud]" Shamcey wrote as a caption for a series of video clips of her little girl reading a book while pointing at each word. "My ate @nlakelceylee at 2 years and 10 months!" the mom of two added.
But wait, there's more: Shamcey also included clips of her daughter doing math worksheets. With some guidance from her teacher, perhaps, Nyke is already doing subtraction. "Very good!" Shamcey was heard saying in the background.
A lot of the comments were praises for Nyke and also Shamcey, who graduated magna cum laude in college.
LOOK: Saab Magalona breastfeeds while singing at a gig!
Saab Magalona and Jim Bacarro held a benefit gig for The Luna Memorial Fund, a foundation they set up and named after their late baby girl, Luna Isabel. The gig, which was also a Christmas party, was held at 20:20 in Makati City and featured the couple's band, Cheats, and two others bands, Oh, Flamingo! and Tom's Story. There was no fixed entrance fee, and instead, the audience was encouraged to "pay what you want."
Before the gig started, Jim Bacarro shared in his Instagram Stories how Saab multi-tasks between being a mom and vocalist for Cheats. The video showed Saab wearing a nursing cover as she breastfed their son Pancho during the soundcheck.
"Pump rock," Jim aptly wrote on his Instagram Story video. "Hahaha. Wala kasi sa schedule yung sound check eh!!" was Saab's reply to her husband when she shared the clip on her Instagram Stories.
It looks like Pancho was not present during the actual benefit gig though, which turned out to be a huge success.
That was the best gig. Thank you for all your donations ðŸ˜± We surpassed the target and we’ll be able to buy a deep freezer for the East Ave Medical Center NICU to store breast milk. The rest will be used to buy diapers for the babies ðŸ’• #MerryCheatsmas #LunaMemorialFund— Saab (@saabmagalona) December 5, 2018
"That was the best gig. Thank you for all your donations," Saab tweeted, adding that it surpassed their target income. The celebrity mom also shared that the funds will be used to buy a deep freezer for storing breast milk for the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) of the East Ave Medical Center in Quezon City, and diapers.
Saab celebrated her 30th birthday last November 23 by giving donations and holding a talk on breastfeeding and newborn care to the moms and their babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) of East Avenue Medical Center, Quezon City.
