Over the weekend, Miriam Quiambao found herself in a situation familiar with working moms like her.

The household help had to attend to an emergency in the province, while her husband Ardy Roberto had a talk in Iloilo.

Miriam herself had an important appointment that day.

Good thing her little hero was around, her stepson Joshua.

"No Yaya, No Hubby, No Problem," the beauty queen-turned-motivational speaker began in her caption.

"#TheBestKuyaEver @joshwiequiambao_roberto is here to the rescue!

"I'm left alone with my kids and needed to go for some treatment this afternoon. Kuya very kindly agreed to babysit his brother."


Miriam was happy to report in her next Instagram post that she and Joshua "survived" the day.

The celebrity mom enjoyed seeing Joshua look after his baby brother, eight-month-old Elijah.

Published as is, Miriam captioned: "Baby had a couple of poop blowouts today and even if Kuya hated changing diapers, he suffered the aroma since Mommy really an extra hand. Baby can no longer stay still to have his diaper changed.

"After that, I needed to go for treatment this afternoon and Kuya very kindly agreed to baby sit Elijah. He took him out for a stroll in the park but came back after 20 mins.

"I asked Kuya if baby enjoyed it. He said baby got bored after a while. Not sure if it was really the small baby or the big baby who got bored but I'm taking Kuya for his words.

"Loved listening to Elijah's laugh when Kuya sings him the Itsy Bitsy Spider song or plays peekaboo with him. This was in the car when Mommy was driving and Kuya needed to stay in the backseat with baby who was on the carseat.


"Same thing early evening today while Kuya was helping Mommy give baby a bath. This little boy loves his Kuya so much! I love seeing them have fun together!"

But there was a moment of panic along the way.

Miriam recounted in her recent Instagram post: "I was in the bathroom doing my quiet time when I suddenly heard a thud followed by a wailing cry.


"I rushed to the bedroom and couldn’t find my baby whom I left on our bed (asleep or so I thought) surrounded by a fortress of pillows.

"His cries were coming from the direction of the crib area so I thought he fell in. But no! The cries were coming from behind & under the crib!

"So I pulled out the crib and there he was on the floor next to the changing table!

"Apparently, there a small gap between the headboard & the pillow that I wasn’t able to secure & he managed to crawl there!"

Baby Elijah unfortunately hit his nose and got bruised with a bit of blood coming out.

Miriam called her pedia right away.

"She said it's just a hematoma & advised me to apply gentle cold compress on the affected area.

"I put baby to the breast to comfort him so that I can also apply the cold compress w/o him wriggling away from my embrace.


"I can only thank God na ito lang ang nangyari! No broken bones or brain concussions. Nothing worse!

"I believe that God assigns angels to watch the over our children. So even if God allowed this to happen, I'm still grateful for his protection & provision."

Miriam gave birth to Elijah in February 2019.


The former Miss Universe candidate was 43 when she found out she was pregnant.

Joshua is the son of Miriam's husband Ardy and his late wife, Tintin.
