"Sa house niya and we're all there," Shaina told the press after the press conference of her new afternoon soap called Kambal sa Uma held this afternoon at ABS-CBN's Dolphy Theater in Quezon City.
Vina has not yet given birth. "Doon kami nag-spend ng Holy Week kasi nga any time, e. Kami naman, sobrang excited kami noon, manganganak na siya kinabukasan, hindi pala nanganak," said Shaina.
She added, "Pero sabi, di ba, ng doctor April 10. Anytime puwede na siyang manganak. Sabi ko nga kanina, 'Ang tagal-tagal ko namang makatanggap ng tawag na nanganak na 'yong ate ko. Excited na akong makita 'yong pamangkin ko. But anytime, pwede na siya."
During the conversation, Shaina said that Vina will have a normal delivery at Cardinal Santos Medical Center. She also mentioned that to help her Ate Vina's delivery, they engaged in physical activities together.
She related, "Sabay kaming nag-e-exercise, nagwa-walking kami, nag-swimming pa para matagtag na yung baby, para puwede na siyang lumabas. Di ba, it will help her delivery, e, sinasabi nila kapag nag-e-exercise ka."
Aside from physical preparations, Shaina also told the media that everything has all been set for her seventh pamangkin, including the baby room.
"Kumpleto na!" the 19-year-old actress exclaimed. "Like, what I've said, ang dami kasing kaibigan ni ate na nagmamahal sa kanya, na nag-throw ng baby shower for her. So, parang kumpleto na. Sa States, may nag-throw for her. Dito, mga tatlo yata o dalawa, non-showbiz and showbiz also. Kaya parang nakumpleto na ang mga gamit ni baby. Noong sinort-out namin, 'Ay, kumpleto na pala! Wala na tayong dapat bilhin, bottle na lang.' Ganun. We're very excited."
After Vina gives birth, Shaina said that her Ate will go on with her showbiz career. In fact, her Ate Vina mentioned to her, "Pagkatapos niyang manganak, exercise agad dahil may tour na naman siya. 'Yong mga six months niya or five months nasa States pa siya, e, nag-tour pa siya. Sabi ko, 'Hindi ba masama 'yan for the baby?' Hindi naman siya masyadong sumasayaw din. But definitely, definitely."
