PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked Cheska how she is preparing for the new member of the family.
She muses, “I guess, since I have two girls, so, of course, it’s a whole new wardrobe.
“And then, because my babies are still relatively very young, they’re all still feeding from the bottle, so I have to buy a different set of bottles na naman.
“And then, yeah, just those stuff lang kasi he cannot share naman with his sisters. So, the basic stuff only.
Cheska has two lovely daughters, Kendra, 3, and Scarlett, 1. How different is it being pregnant with a baby boy from a girl?
Cheska replied, “Well, the boy is much stronger and more malikot than the girl. So, nakakagulat yung mga movements niya.
“But other than that, I guess between my pregnancies with my two baby girls, my pregnancy with a baby boy is easier.
“Meaning less morning sickness, less feeling nauseous, but I still got it, but not as much.”
Cheska and husband Doug are very excited about having a baby boy.
“Super excited because you know, we have two girls and finally, our third baby is a boy na.

“And yun nga, your children get you closer and we’re happier because, yun nga, your kids bring joy to your household.”
What can you say is your secret to a happy marriage?
“Well, I guess, the number one thing is that, put God in the center of your relationship and it really has to be the both of you. It really puts your relationship in perspective.
“And enjoy each other’s time, laugh together, go back to the time why you decided to marry each other.
“For me, it’s not so hard to think. For me, it’s not so hard to think of those things cause my husband and I get along so well.
“Our children, they’re icing on the cake. Our relationship’s already good but they make it better.
“‘Cause when we see our kids, we realize parang, it’s so surreal that we have beautiful kids and, you know, we can’t believe that they came from us.
“So, I guess it’s keeping an open relationship and enjoying each other’s time,” she said.
BEING CANDID. The couple have been married for four years now. How do they handle misunderstandings?
Cheska states, “Arguments lang kami, it’s not even fight, petty things lang.
“Kasi, ano naman kami, e, before we got married, we were together for five years.
“And prior to that, we were friends to begin with. So we basically know what we don’t like.
“I constantly tell my husband, you know, Honey, if I do anything that turns you off that you don’t like, then let me know.
“Because I don’t want you to think at the back of your head na ‘I’m so turned off with this person,” she declares.
Cheska also believes there's no room for complacency in marriage.
“Even if you're married, you also have to keep yourself as interesting and don’t be too relaxed lang na you don’t fix up, you know.
“And my husband tells me the same thing. If there’s anything that you don’t like about me, just let me know.
“So, constantly I tell him that, ‘Tell me if it turns you off, if there’s something you don’t like about me.’
“So that I know. I can improve myself in that manner,” she said.
