Now a preschooler, Scarlet Snow Belo, the four-year-old daughter of celebrity beauty doctors Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho Jr., is starting to learn new things, develop basic life skills, and become more independent.

Doc Hayden makes sure not to miss out on her daughter's rapid growth, that's why he always makes an effort to spend time with her when he's not busy at work.

PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the press had a quick interview with Doc Hayden at the launch of Air Intellipure on Wednesday, October 23, at Manila House Private Club in Bonifacio Global City.

Doc Hayden said Scarlet has greatly developed her interpersonal skills.

"She talks more now and pilosopo na. She does ask a lot of questions, very inquisitive. But still, she's a very cheerful, very sweet, and charming little girl."

Another thing he noticed is that Scarlet Snow's curiosity has also improved.

Asked how he handles questions from her daughter, Hayden said, "Si Scarlet, she asks a lot of questions and I take every question seriously. Of course, yung silly questions, goofy questions, I don't take them seriously.

"Pinagtatawanan namin yun, but pag mga questions na seryoso, I really take it seriously. Inuupo ko talaga iyan, as in, ia-isolate ko siya."

Doc Hayden recalled one time when Scarlet Snow asked him a difficult question so early in the morning.

He recounted, "One time, we woke up early in the morning, biglang sabi niya sa akin... Bagong gising lang 'to, siguro napanaginipan niya, biglang sabi niya sa akin, 'Dad, can God go to hell and save people?'

"Tulog pa ako nito... O kaya meron siyang mga tanong na usually of spiritual yung mga tanong niya.

"Pero even questions like, 'Where does the rain from the sky come from?' So sasagutin ko iyan talaga sa kanya. Sineseryoso ko."

And he does it all the time.

In a video posted on Instagram last September 1 on Scarlet Snow's official Instagram account, Doc Hayden is seen explaining basic anatomy to his daughter.

To be exact, he explained how the cells of the body regenerate to heal the wounds.

Based on the video's description, Scarlet Snow's "booboo" on her wrist sparked her curiosity on how it "will go away."

Doc Hayden finds scientific questions easy to answer. But there are times when he has to check Google just to be sure his answers are based on facts.

He said, "'Pag hindi ko alam, ginu-google ko muna talaga. Tsine-check ko muna."

The 39-year-old celebrity dad added, "I think it's important talaga to take their questions seriously especially kapag moral questions.

"Anything that connects to their identity is very important."

More than anything, Doc Hayden is just delighted seeing his child's development day by day.

He said, "I'm still discovering, I can't say it's a personality change. She's just really developing and it's just beautiful to witness.

"Makikita mo iyan, one year old or two years old, it's just beautiful na you're discovering your own child.

"Parang, 'Ay, ganito pala ugali ng anak ko, saan niya kaya nakuha ito? Sa akin kaya?'"
