Any first-time mom will be quick to say that the most challenging part of motherhood is the lack of sleep.
James Yap's girlfriend Michela Cazzola can attest to this.
Since she gave birth to Baby Michael James last August 8, 2016, the Italian beauty has been a proud member of "Team No Sleep."
Aside from this, the "constant questioning and asking if you are doing the best" sometimes add to her stress.
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) was able to catch up with her through an exchange of messages via Instagram direct last December 14, 2016.
On the most rewarding part of being a mom, James's girlfriend revealed that her baby's smile never fails to put her on a high.
She said, "It's amazing when you see that everyday, the baby learns new things."
Mommy Mic treasures the moments when she and her prince will have those little "conversations."
Baby MJ is four months old now.
"The most rewarding are the things the baby learns day by day.
"Nature is truly amazing," the hot momma noted.
She added, "It's true what they say it's love at first sight."
On her fears as a new mom, Mic told PEP that she's afraid to commit mistakes.
But she readily absorbs her discoveries.
"Being a mom is an every-day learning experience."
Browsing through the Instagram account of the PBA superstar and the 33-year-old stunner, we noticed that they haven't posted any picture of Baby MJ.
The sexy mom explained, "It's a cultural thing.
"In Italy, we avoid posting pictures of small babies."
Beforehand, she told James about it, and he respects her decision.
But she does not make judgement on those parents who do the opposite.
"I respect people who do that [post their babies photos], but personally I don't like," she told PEP.
Before we bid goodbye, she promised to show his photo soon.
She ended, "I am just keeping him all by myself first."
