Now five months pregnant, Kylie Padilla has more or less adjusted to the idea of having a baby inside her womb.
"I think emotionally, from where I am now in my pregnancy, I'm ready," she said during her launch as the latest ambassador of Watsons on March 16.
But fully embracing motherhood is another thing she has to work on.
"I don't think you can ever be ready for having a baby kasi it changes.
"I mean when you have the baby, iba pa iyon.
"And then, you're gonna have a toddler, you're gonna have a kid.
"It's not just the baby part that I'm thinking about.
"It's the whole 'I'm gonna have a kid for the rest of my life' part."
One of the things she changed the minute she learned about the good news was her diet.
She made an attempt to go all-organic, but was unsuccessful for the first trimester since she craved for pasta dishes.
Laughing, she decided to eat "lahat ng hindi ko kinakain noong nagda-diet ako."
Kylie resumed, "Pero I stopped craving na, I started siguro first trimester hanggang second."
FITNESS. When asked how she has been preparing physically for giving birth, the 24-year-old Kapuso actress answered "walking and I do yoga."
She also goes to the gym with fiance Aljur Abrenica.
But what she misses most is her training for Muay Thai, a popular combat sport in Thailand which uses the shin bone, elbows, and knees.
Kylie is a big fan. During her teenage years, she stayed in Thailand for three months to learn more about the kickboxing sport.
The daughter of Robin Padilla said, "I might go back into Muay Thai because I researched, puwede naman, e."
According to a health magazine, it is safe as long as "sparring and clinch work are eliminated completely."
Most importantly, "it should be approved by a qualified physician."
Kylie added, "Hindi lang gano'n ka-ano yung power but I can.
"I saw a few ladies doing it so sabi ko, 'O, puwede pala e.'"
Talking to her baby, the first-time mom-to-be said, "Hindi pa rin nawala iyong pagka-astig ng nanay mo."
