Jolina Magdangal relates how she and husband Mark Escueta prepared their son Pele for his role as kuya to Baby Vika.


Jolina Magdangal and Mark Escueta's firstborn, Pele Iñigo, is going to be a protective brother over his sister Vika.

The Kapamilya star described to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) the reaction of her son the first time he saw the baby.

Through a phone interview which happened while she was still at the Asian Hospital in Muntinlupa City, she narrated, “Alam mo, sa totoo lang, nag-video kami.

"Talagang pinagplanuhan namin na i-video ang reaction ni Pele. Kaya lang, ang dami rin kasing tao sa kuwarto nung time na yun.

“Nandoon ang parents ko, nandoon ang Mommy ni Mark na nakaabang din sa reaksyon ni Pele. E, si Pele, kapag nakatingin ka sa kanya at nakaabang, lalo siyang tumitiklop.

“Pero kapag kaming apat lang, tulad ngayon, wala nang bisita and since hindi kami nagdala ng helper, kami lang, maalaga siya.

“'Tapos kapag umiiyak nang malakas, kinakausap niya na, 'It’s okay, don’t cry.'”

The couple sees to it that Pele won't feel jealous now that Baby Vika has arrived. 

It's a good thing he is about to start Kinder 1, where he will hopefully meet new friends.

Jolina said, “Actually, buntis pa lang ako, ni-ready na namin siya.

“Kasama siya sa pagbubuntis, alam niya yun. Kahit na nasa tiyan ko pa lang si Vika, kinakausap na niya. 'Hi, I’m Kuya Pele.'

"Kung may gagawin siyang drawing, ipapakita niya sa tiyan ko.

"Sana lang, wag magbago at sana marami pa kaming magawa na magkakasama kami.”

Having a son and a daughter, the actress-host now feels their family is complete.

“Kumpleto na, masaya siyempre,” she said. “Pero alam mo, hindi ko naman maipagkakaila na meron akong mga fears, meron akong mga questions. Meron akong mga hindi maintindihan na mga feelings.

“Parang hindi pa rin ako makapaniwala na—lalo na kapag magkatabi sina Pele at Vika at kinakausap ni Pele—parang hindi pa rin ako makapaniwala na, 'Sa amin ba talaga itong dalawa?'

“Meron na naman akong isa. Nag-uumapaw, ang daming fears, pero nangingibabaw yung sobrang thankful ako at sana, ganito lang kasaya.

"Siyempre, babae ito, iba naman ito sa lalaking baby, di ba?"

She concluded, “Pero happy, masaya lang na lahat okay. Very thankful din ako sa mga nagme-message na lahat sila, happy rin for us. Dumadalaw, nagpapadala ng fruits, flowers. Sobra lang kaming grateful sa lahat.”
