Jolina Magdangal is now on her seventh month pregnancy but she and her husband Rivermaya drummer Mark Escueta have not yet chosen a name for their baby boy.

 

“Ang hirap talaga maghanap (ng name ng baby) pero may inililista na talaga kami. Gusto ko talaga magkasundo kami ni Mark kung ano ‘yung pangalan talaga,” Jolina said during the Christmas party for the press tendered by PPL Entertainment headed by Perry Lansigan.

Although they’ve checked out “baby name books” and the “internet,” the couple remains undecided though “ang gusto sana namin ay parang Italian or Brazilian name.”

 

Delicate condition

Jolina shared that the first few months of her pregnancy was delicate in that “nag-spotting ako.”

She was even advised by her OB-gynecologist to take a month and a half bed rest.

“Ang tayo ko lang ay para magwiwi, muntik na nga akong mag-bedpan, eh.”

She and Mark were cautioned about announcing the pregnancy until “hindi sure.”

“Kasi baka aasa ang mga tao. Nu’ng finally na-announce na namin, ang dami ring nag-pray para sa amin kasi maselan (ang sitwasyon ko),” said she who is set to give birth around Feb. 21.

 

Breastfeeding

The singer-actress intends to breastfeed her child for at least six months.

“Pipigilan ko na painumin siya sa bote hangga’t kaya. Kahit na may work na ako after three months at naka-recover na ako, basta mapadede ko siya. Kaya ngayon pa lang ay nagma-malunggay na ako.”

Jolina gets tips about motherhood from her mom.

“Hindi siya nagkulang ng pagsabi kung ano ang mga dapat,” she shared.

Even her brother gives valuable tips.

“Yung brother ko na me anak na four months, ‘pag pinapaliguan na ang baby niya ay ipinapakita sa akin. ‘O, ganito, bumili ka ng ganito. Ganito dapat ang crib niya.’”

 

Yaya?

With her busy schedule, it would be practical for Jolina to get a nanny.

While not against the idea, she feels that “kung magyayaya ako ay assistant ko lang pero gusto ko, ako (ang mag-aasikaso personally sa baby ko).

“Gusto ko talaga hands-on ang pag-aalaga sa bata.” Manila Bulletin
