Diana Zubiri is not worried that her costumes in Encantadia make her after-birth figure more pronounced. "May nag-comment nga before...ang taba," she remarked, sounding amused.


Diana Zubiri was pregnant when GMA-7 asked her to join the remake of Encantadia.

It can be recalled that she played Danaya, the youngest among the Sang'gre, in the original version.

She told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in an interview held on November 16, "Hindi naman ako nag-expect pero noong sinabi na sa akin, parang na-excite naman ako.

"Sinabi nila sa akin noong time na in-announce na kung sino yung apat [na sang’gre].

"Sinabi nila na gusto nila sanang makasali ako, kaso lang, ang sabi ko nun, 'Buntis ako.'

"E, April nun, so we’ll see kung aabot, at least, umabot."

Baby Aliyah Rose was two months old when Diana began taping for the series.

"Baby pa naman kaya puwede pang iwan, tulog lang ng tulog," the new mom said.

Since she's breastfeeding her baby, she has to pump every three hours. 

POST-PREGNANCY WEIGHT. One thing she was not able to focus on, however, was losing the extra weight.

"Noong una, parang putok-putok yung costume, pero hindi naman yung maraming kita.

"May nag-comment nga before, kasi yung teaser, may nagsabi, 'Ang taba!'

"Di ba pinapahulaan kung sino si Lila Sari [her character].

"May nagsabi, 'Si Diana iyan kasi mataba, kapapanganak pa lang.'

"At least, may excuse ako, di ba?"

HAPPY WITH TWO KIDS. Does she and husband Andy Smith have plans of having another baby?

The actress now has a seven-year-old boy and a baby girl.

"Siyempre sa stage na 'to, sinasabi lagi, 'O, gusto mo pa ba?'

"Teka muna, katatapos lang, hinga-hinga muna.

"Ang hirap magbuntis. Hindi ako nahirapan sa panganganak, nahirapan akong magbuntis.

"Diet, nagkaroon kasi ako ng gestational diabetes.

"Bawal akong kumain ng ganito, feeling ko inapi-api ako.

"Di ba kapag buntis ka, iba ang hormones mo"

"Feeling ko talaga inapi ako pero hindi naman, masyado lang sensitive."

But she didn't speak with absolute finality.

Smiling, she said, "Malay mo naman, magbago pa isip ko."

How's her eldest as a kuya?

"Noong una, siyempre, yung adjustment niya, may konting selos, pero ngayon, wala na.

"Kasi nakikita niya na wala namang nagbago, nadagdagan lang.

"Marami rin naman siyang mga pinsan, puro mga babae rin.

"Maalaga nga siya, palagi niyang hinahalikan, ilang beses na rin siyang napu-poo-an.

"Kasi willing siyang tumulong na magpunas-punas.

"Naihian na rin siya, nasukahan," ended Diana, laughing.
