Why Shamcey Supsup Needs Hubby's Approval to Post Baby's PhotosHer husband Lloyd has an important role in Baby Nyke's social media presence.by Kaye Koo for Pep.ph .
Shamcey Supsup doesn't want her daughter Nyke to ever feel pressured to do something she doesn't want.
So to those who are asking if she and Lloyd will allow Baby Nyke to join pageants in the future, the former beauty queen says, "It depends, but it's going to be up to her."
This means that the one-year-old can choose to be the person she wants to be.
"We will just be there to guide her. It's her decision.
"Sa akin, as a mom, magiging role ko is to tell her to finish school siguro.
"After that, kung ano gusto niya, we will let her do her thing," she points out during a bag store's recent event.
Nyke, whose full name is Nylah Kelsey, is so named simply because Lloyd wanted the name Nyke.
Her nickname came first so when they selected her full name, it stood for winner, brave, and goddess of victory.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Shamcey jokes, "So dapat panalo na siya."
Unlike most celebrity parents, Nyke's photos do not dominate her feed and Lloyd's on social media.
The host/architect/restaurateur has two reasons: one has something to do with protecting her daughter's digital footprint, the other is, "yung mga shots, hindi okay."
Smiling, she says, "I think mas madalas on Facebook. I post videos kasi personal account.
"Yung mga lolo, lola na malayo, that is the only place for them to see her regularly, aside from messaging or video call apps.
"On Instagram, since public so here and there lang.
"Pero ang sarap i-document nung paglaki niya.
"Nung mas bata siya, mas maraming pictures.
"Now, ang hirap na kunin kasi ang likot na so less photos na rin."
Lloyd plays an important role in Nyke's social media presence.
Shamcey reveals, "I ask him, I show him first, siya mag-a-approve. Kasi ayaw niya mag-post ng pangit na picture ni Nylah!"ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Meanwhile, as parents, the two relish the opportunity of working together, and, at the same time, being able to bond with Nyke.
"If we need to spend time at home, uwi lang kami.
"Bonding na rin namin yung if we bring her somewhere for quick check-ups or trips to the mall."
