Chynna Ortaleza is jolted by the advice of co-star and friend Regine Velasquez on baby training. She relates, "Sabi niya, 'Kailangan mo mamalo.' Sabi ko, 'Ngayon, one?' Okey sa kanya pero may proper way."

 


Chynna Ortaleza is back to work after a two-year hiatus to focus on her domestic life with husband Kean Cipriano and their one-year-old baby, Stellar.

She will be seen in the Kapuso fantasy series Mulawin vs. Ravena as the wife of the character being played by Dennis Trillo.

According to her, “Sinabi sa akin ng GMA, 'Kapag ready to work ka na, abisuhan mo kami.'

“Never akong naka-feel ng pressure na, ‘Uy, magtrabaho ka na. Ngayon na.’”

That was the time she felt she was ready to be separated from her baby.

“Noong medyo nasasanay na ako na naiiwan ko na ang anak ko sa mama ko, sa mama ni Kean, parang feeling ko, puwede na akong mag-work,” she said.

Besides, she was really aching to get back to acting, “Kasi nami-miss ko na.

“Umaabot ako sa puntong umiiyak ako sa bahay, gusto ko na talagang umarte."

MOMMY BLUES. But when Chynna got what she longed for, she faced a dilemma.

"Ngayon baligtad,” she said, amused.

“Noong isang araw, umiiyak ako kay Kean kasi gusto kong mag-resign.

“Sabi ni Kean, ‘Okey ka pa rin ba talaga? Post-partum pa ba 'yan?’”

Was it post-partum or separation anxiety?

Chynna shrugged off her experience, “Masasabi mo na post-partum ka kung na-diagnosed ka. 

“May baby blues ako, nalungkot naman ako.

"Pero hindi ko masabi na nag-post-partum depression ako. 

“Hindi ko naman na-feel na papatayin ko ang anak ko. Di ba, ganun yun?

“Iyak-iyak lang, naawa sa sarili, kung ano-ano ang naiisip.

“Feeling ko, parang... wala na akong time magbasa, yun! Yung ganun lang."

REGINE'S TOUGH LOVE. On the set of Mulawin vs. Ravena, Chynna found the occasion to seek the advice of her co-star Regine Velasquez.

She related their conversation, "Sabi ko sa kanya, ‘Ate, paano ba 'to? Paano magdisiplina?

“Si Kean, ayaw mamalo. Sabi naman ng mama ko sa akin, kailangan mamalo. Ano ang gagawin ko?"

Regine's reply jolted Chynna, “Sabi niya, ‘Hindi, kailangan mo mamalo.’  Okey sa kanya, pero may proper way. 

“Sabi ko, ‘Ngayon, one?’ 

“‘Yes, you'll be surprised, as early as one, puwede na 'yan, medyo.’

"Sabi niya, ‘When she pulls your hair, ‘yan ang time na kailangan mo na siyang i-discipline.' 

“Sabi ko, ‘Ano ba 'to, ang hirap namang maging magulang?’”

HAPPY TOGETHER. On the other hand, for all her anxiety about mothering, Chynna is not complaining.

She is getting all the emotional support she needs from Kean, and they’re happy together.

“Masaya, in fairness naman, ngayon binabalanse na naming lahat.

“Pareho kaming nagtatrabaho, may baby kami. 

“At saka, ang gusto ko sa kanya, kung paano niya inaalagaan ang anak niya.

"Tina-try na rin naming magkaroon ng alone time.

“Kasi matagal na rin na naka-focus lang kami sa baby,” Chynna said.

YES TO BABY BOY. And are they trying to have another baby?

"Naku, wala na yata akong balak na magkaroon pa ng pangalawa,” she winced.

“Pinag-uusapan naming mag-asawa, ‘Gusto mo pa ba?’ Sabi niya, ‘Huwag muna.’

“Ako kasi, tinatantiya ko ang sarili ko. 

“Naiintindihan ko na kung bakit sinasabi nila sa akin na manganak ako ng 25. 

“Kasi, ngayong 34 na ako, konting habol ko pa lang, hingal na."

But then again, “Pero kung sasabihin ni Lord sa akin, ‘Lalaki ang magiging anak mo, Chynna.’

“Papabuntis na ako ngayon. Sige, kaya pa 'yan!"
