Does Paul Soriano still sleep on the floor?

Seven months ago, the director admitted sleeping on the floor because their then-11-month-old Seve was already “magulo.”

Paul quipped, "Economy class na nga ako, I sleep on the floor na."

Is that still their sleeping arrangement now that Seve is “more magulo”?

In an interview held at the launch of their endorsement, Red Ribbon, Toni Gonzaga replied, “No, he sleeps in the bed, I sleep on the sofa.

"I sleep on the sofa because Seve has his own bed.

“Kasi our bed is really, really high, and we’ve heard so many stories of babies falling [from] the bed.

“Wala akong kilalang isang mommy na nagsabing hindi pa nahulog ang baby nila sa bed, and medyo mataas talaga yung bed namin, so pag nahulog si Seve," she didn't finish her sentence because she couldn't bear the thought.

She continued, “But when we travel, we sleep on the same bed.”

Speaking of travels, the family has been to Italy, France, Hong Kong, and Japan.

The baby's first out-of-the-country trip was in October 2017.

Toni said, “We want Seve to experience the kind of childhood we didn’t get to experience.”

Paul threw in, “...he’s gone to more countries than I was when I was one year old."

MAY NALUNOK SI SEVE! Early this month, an incident happened in Hong Kong which gave Toni a panic attack.

“We were going up the escalator, and then Paul was holding this mineral water.

“And he [Seve] got the cover of mineral water.

“So we were just talking, and then I said, ‘Let’s cover the mineral water.’ Sabi ko, ‘Where’s the cover?’ Sabi niya [Paul], ‘I don’t know, it’s with you…’

"Then we saw Seve [makes choked sound].

"Yung heart mo di ba parang bumagsak agad sa floor.

"He was trying to swallow the cover.”

Good thing they saw Seve just before he could swallow the cap.

It was their first time to travel without a nanny.

"Very challenging,” the celebrity mom said about that trip.

"It was so worth it. It was so tiring when we were doing it, but looking back, parang I was so happy…It was an experience that bonded us more as a family.”

The incident did not discourage the couple from bringing their toddler each time they travel.

Toni elaborated, "Ako, traveling with a baby is going to test the relationship of a couple.

"It’s a major test in the relationship—of patience, understanding, ano pa ba, Paul?"

The director resumed, "We really have to apply the team work. I can’t expect naman Tin to do every thing so it’s a team work.

"So while she’s bathing him, I’m preparing his milk, his clothes."

MORE TRIPS FOR SEVE. What's their next destination?

Toni said, "We wanna explore the States. We wanna bring him to Colorado, to Hawaii…

Paul added, “LA."

Travels are good for kids. In fact, recent studies suggested that parents should invest in trips rather than toys.

Toni remarked, "We see a lot of improvement to his motor skills, and there are milestones na nangyayari every time we travel.

"Kasi when we travel, we are able to open his eyes to something new, so it stimulates not just his imagination but his mind, body…

"Para nabo-broaden yung horizon niya. Parang mas mabilis yung pagma-mature niya as a baby. Yung nakaka-keep up siya."
