Former child star Camille Prats just can't wait to give birth and be a mother.
Camille, who is now eight months pregnant, revealed to Showbiz Central in a phone interview aired yesterday, December 23, the changes she has to go through as a first-time expectant mom.
"Itong eight months nahihirapan ako kasi hindi ako makahinga lalo na pag natutulog sa gabi," shared the young actress during the phone conversation. "Parang gusto ko nang matulog nang naka-upo kasi hindi ko alam kung ano yong gusto niya. Ito pala ‘yong stage na parang gusto ko na siyang lumabas."
The doctors attending to Camille said that she's due to give birth presumably on the first or second week of January 2008.
"Sobrang excited. Actually, hindi na ko makahintay na lumabas siya, at the same time, medyo kinakababan din ako," she said. "I'm really hoping and praying na sana maging madali ang lahat, maging easy and normal delivery at walang problema."
DOMESTICATED. Camille's unexpected pregnancy forced her to settle temporarily in the United States while waiting for her date with the stork. Her non-showbiz boyfriend, Anthony Linsangan, who is a good family friend, flew there last November to accompany Camille.
The young actress's stay in the U.S. admittedly exposed her to the kind of life she never knew when she was still here in Manila. Living under her parents' wing, plus the fact that she's a celebrity, wouldn't allow conditions that are less than comfortable.
But Camille has learned to appreciate a normal lifestyle outside of celebrityhood.
"This is the first time that I've been away from my family for a very long time," she reflected. "Natuto ako magluto, natuto ako maglinis ng bahay, maglaba, lahat, mag-grocery. ‘Yong mga bagay na hindi ko napapansin, lahat napupuna ko na. Natuto ako mag-plantsa, magtupi, lahat."
Living under one roof also served as an on-the-job training of sorts for Camille and Anthony.
"Nakakatawa kasi para kaming nagbabahay-bahayan dito, so pareho kaming natatawa sa mga ginagawa namin," she shared generously. "Nagma-mop kami ng floor, ako ang naglalaba, siya naghuhugas ng pinggan, siya nagluluto."
Camille also has nothing but good words to the father of her baby.
She said endearingly, "Lagi niya kong pinagluluto ng pagkain... he's very caring. Excited din siya."
According to Camille, she and Anthony are talking about getting maried next year.
"We're looking at December ...planning pa lang," she said in closing.
