Kaye Abad is determined to be a “practical” mommy.
When asked about the progress of her shopping for baby stuff, the 35-year-old Kapamilya actress said, “So far, kumpleto na halos. Baby’s room na lang ang kulang."
She added, “Marami rin kaming mahihiram sa sister niya, e," referring to Erica Castillo-Uy, the sister of Kaye's husband, Paul Jake Castillo, 32.
Even as a first-time mom, Kaye said her baby supplies don’t have to be all brand-new.
“I asked my friends—like Patrick Garcia's wife Nikka—they said, 'Don’t spend too much or invest on a newborn kasi mabilis silang lalaki, sayang lang.
“I don’t mind na hand-me-down. That’s fine.”
Meanwhile, this family is crowded with December-born as Paul Jake's birthday falls on the same date as Erica's son who is turning one on December 22, and Kaye is expected to give birth anytime from December 20 onward.
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) had a chat with Kaye and Paul Jake during their baby shower organized by Aprica.
The happy occasion was held at Marco Polo Plaza in Cebu City, last Sunday, October 29.
In the interview, Paul Jake candidly pointed out that his wife is a self-confessed “kuripot.”
Talking about who’s in charge of the household budget, Paul Jake replied with a laugh, “Budget? Siya na ‘yan. Matanda na ‘to! 'Tsaka kuripot ‘to, so okey lang. Safe tayo diyan.”
Kaye concurred, “Kaya yung tanong kanina sa baby shower game kung sino ang magastos, walang pumila sa akin.
“Grabe, grabe ako! Kung puwedeng ihiram lahat ng gamit...Hahaha! Sayang, e, 'tapos lalaki lang din.
“Kung malaki na siya, like siguro ‘pag four or five years old, saka na lang siguro.”
