On Thursday, June 14, Shamcey Supsup and Lloyd Lee proudly announced that their second baby is a boy.
Shamcey and Lloyd officially announced the gender of their baby during the grand opening of their restaurant Pedro N' Coi's 7th branch at Resorts World Manila in Pasay City.
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the press, Shamcey admitted that she was surprised when she first found out about her pregnancy.
The 32-year-old celebrity mom narrrated, "Hindi ko din kasi alam.
"Parang ako, nung umpisa sabi ko sa kanya [Lloyd], one [child] lang, dahil na-overwhelm ako dun sa first baby.
"Hindi ako nag-work for like almost six months after I gave birth.
"So sabi ko, 'Naku, mahirap, kasi ang dami nating trabaho.' Parang I don't have the luxury to take time off."
Shamcey added, "Yung kay Nyke talaga planned, talagang we said, 'Okay, mag-baby tayo.'
"This one talagang nagulat na lang din ako... Or si Lloyd hindi siya nagulat, so baka siya plinano niya. Ako, hindi ko alam."
BABY PLANS. The former Miss Universe Philippines titleholder noted that they have been talking about having another baby for some time now.
"Napag-uusapan kasi siyempre nakikita mo yung baby 'tapos parang, 'Ay, masaya pala na may baby.'
"'Tapos iba yung pakiramdam na may tumatawag sa 'ming mommy and daddy. Iba yung feeling.
"'Tapos, nagdyu-joke lang kami na parang, 'O, next year, mag-baby na tayo.'
"'Tapos, nagtse-check pa kami ng calendar, ng Chinese calendar kung paano ba maging boy or girl, ganun."
How is she able to fit every thing on her schedule as a working mom now that she's pregnant?
Shamcey answered, "Buti nga nakasingit pa ng baby, e, sobrang busy.
"Siguro with the help of other people, as well.
"Like for me, we're very lucky to have grandmas and grandpas who are... kapag busy kami, may pinag-iiwanan kami ng anak.
"And sa work naman, hands-on talaga kaming dalawa. We make time for every thing.
"May kanya-kanya kaming roles ni Lloyd.
"Ako kasi yung may hawak ng design, construction, and project management. 'Tapos siya naman, more on operations and finance.
"So okay naman, parang balanced out naman kami."
SECOND PREGNANCY. Shamcey also shared some updates on her second pregnancy.
Now on her fifth month, Shamcey said her current pregnancy is a lot easier compared to her first.
She explained, "I had very less morning sickness unlike during my first pregnancy.
"Four months talaga yata akong... I can't eat, throwing up. I lost siguro mga 10 pounds nung mga first trimester.
"Pero kinain ko siya lahat nung second and third.
"Now, mas malaki talaga. I compared pictures from before and now.
"I'm definitely bigger now and much heavier kasi nga wala akong morning sickness...
"And wala ako... before kasi may mga aversions ako sa food, ngayon, lahat ng pagkain gusto ko.
"More on salty, salty food."
Shamcey admitted that she has more gestational cravings on her second pregnancy.
She said, "Basta kung may ma-amoy ako or may kumakain, kung anong kinakain nila, gusto ko rin.
"Walang anything in particular but more on ano... before kasi mas sweet. Ngayon, maaalat na pagkain."
Shamcey added that there was a time she craved a lot for coffee and soft drinks.
The former beauty queen, however, noted that she has stopped drinking them since both are bad for pregnant moms.
She said, "Hindi ako umiinom ng kape, unlike si Lloyd, he really drinks coffee in the morning.
"Ako, I don't really drink coffee. I only drink like hot chocolate or milk.
"Pero ngayon, gustung-gusto ko talaga yung amoy ng kape at saka gusto ko uminom ng kape.
"'Tapos, lagi niyang sinasabi sa akin, 'O, bawal ka niyan kasi may caffeine.' Sinasabi ko sa kanya, 'Puwede daw basta one cup a day.'
"At saka softdrinks, my gosh!
"Pero ngayon nag-stop na ako.
"Nung first trimester, nagke-crave ako palagi ng softdrinks, sobrang bad."
So far, Shamcey said that they have yet to decide on a name for their baby boy.
"Usually, ako yung naghahanap ng meaning pero siya yung final say kung ano yung name."
