Our favorite doll, Donita Rose, is a mother now. The movie star and VJ, also known as Mrs. Eric Villarama, gave birth to her first baby, Joshua Paul, nicknamed JP, on July 22, 2004.
In an e-mail to YES!, Donita reports on her life as wife and breastfeeding mother in her new home in Singapore: "We've just moved in into this three-bedroom unit that is spankin' new but on the east coast, away from the city and I absolutely love it.
"Everything in our new apartment is brand new and it's very much Eric's and my personality combined into one hip pad. My old apartment was smack dab in the middle of the city. There was only one bedroom so we would never fit with a third member coming and a helper moving with us."
"As for Eric, my husband... I'm sorry if I'm gonna be a bit biased but Eric is the best dad in the whole wide world! He took paternal leave for 10 days and we've just been at home if we are not working or making a visit to the hospital. He has been in charge of cuddling and bathing, changing, burping, and putting JP to sleep every day and I absolutely love it.
"My only job has been to feed and although it has been tiring for me, Eric stays by my side most of the time even if it's 3 am and we've had no sleep. Eric was even thoughtful enough to hire a masseuse for 7 days as a treat and refuses to have me disturbed during that one hour break every evening. Eric is so sweet. I really could not ask for anything more."
