More than two weeks since she arrived in Los Angeles, California, Camille Prats revealed to Showbiz Central that she is slowly adjusting to her new life while preparing for the arrival of her first child.
The young actress who is five-months pregnant also revealed that she has pushed through with her plan to make the most of her U.S. stay by studying.
"Nag-enroll na ko, 'tapos kasi yong school na ‘yon ang inaaral ko, Early Childhood Education. They sent me the modules that I need to study. 'Tapos ibabalik ko lang sa kanila yong assignments ko, ie-email ko pabalik sa kanila," Camille disclosed to Showbiz Central in a phone interview aired yesterday, September 23.
Unlike when she was still here in Manila, Camille now does ordinary things at home. "Ako ang ginagawa ko sa bahay usually kung walang ginagawa minsan naglilinis. Tapos nagpapaturo ako sa kanya [Camille's mother] ng mga lulutuin. Bumili rin ako ng exercise videos na pang-buntis para kahit paano gumagalaw galaw naman ako."
The former child star also noticed that her pregnancy became more prominent after she revealed this to the public.
"Nakakagulat kasi siguro nung nasa Manila pa ako parang mas maliit s'ya, parang hindi s'ya masyadong lumalaki. Pero pagdating na pagdating namin dito, parang bigla nakita mo nagkaroon talaga ng bump, biglang lumaki yong tiyan ko. Kaya siguro parang naisip n'ya na, alam mo 'yon, after the interview with Showbiz Central na sinabi ko na about my situation, siguro na-feel n'ya na everyone knows about him and, alam mo 'yon, parang mas nag-relax na siguro kaya biglang lumaki 'yong tiyan ko," she said enthusiastically.
While abroad, Camille constantly communicates with her family and loved ones in the Philippines through the Internet.
GIRL TALK. Caught in the excitement of sharing her life in the United States, Camille also divulged that her friend, young actress Tanya Garcia, recently gave birth to a healthy baby girl. Camille and Tanya were together in the GMA-7 fantaserye Super Twins.
"Mga four hours after n'yang manganak [tinawagan niya ako], so sobrang natawa 'ko sa kanya," said Camille excitedly.
As an expectant mom herself, Camille curiously asked Tanya about all the details of childbirth and her experience.
"Ang dami ko kasing tinanong sa kanya," Camille laughed. "Sobrang sakit daw ng labor n'ya...okay naman daw and hindi naman daw ganun kasakit kasi mabilis lang daw. So, she told me na there's nothing to worry about."
Camille said she's planning to visit the new mom and her baby soon.
It will be recalled that Tanya and her boyfriend, ex-Pampanga governor Mark Lapid, flew to Las Vegas a couple of months ago to settle there indefinitely.
When the news of Tanya's pregnancy first came out, Mark wholeheartedly accepted responsibility despite nagging rumors that he was already married. Mark had remained silent about the issue.
