Jolina Magdangal's Instagram posts about motherhood brim with positivity even if her situation has not been exactly easy.
Since she gave birth to her daughter Vika Anya last May 28, she's been a "happy zombie momshie."
On June 28, the Kapamilya host wrote, "Hindi madali ang journey pero masasabi ko na masaya pa rin kahit puyat palagi. At 2 na silang inaalagaan na magkaiba ng needs.
"Ang sarap talaga maging nanay.♥?♥?♥? #TeleVika #PeleSerye #TeamEscueta @vikaanayaescueta @peleinigoescueta @markescueta"
Her post elicited a reaction from her former love-team partner Marvin Agustin, whose comment was, "Awww...Ambilis! 'Tapos mag-college na siya, then may manliligaw na then magpapakasal na..."
Jolina's response to Marvin's comment was: "Hahahahahahaha! Sumikip dibdib ko dun sa manliligaw!!! Haha."
The following day, Jolina had her check-up, and was glad because "nag-normal na ang BP ko, pero under observation pa rin at tuloy lang ang iniinom na gamot."
It would seem the sleepless nights have started taking their toll on her health.
She further described her routine, "Hi daw sabi ng eyebags ko!!! Para akong nag-soap opera taping sa daily (umaga, gabi, madaling araw) routine sa pag aalaga kay Vika.
"Si Pele umaga hanggang gabi lang, si Vika hanggang graveyard shift. Haha!
"#AkoAyHappyZombieMomshie #TeleVika #PeleSerye #TeamEscueta @vikaanayaescueta @peleinigoescueta @markescueta"
The post earned another remark from Marvin: "Hahaha grabe labtim! Ang sipag-sipag mo, kaya naman mahal na mahal ka ni Mark," referring to Jolina's husband Mark Escueta.
Good words from friends and fans are indeed helpful in lifting spirits.
And seeing her children, Pele and Vika, happy and healthy makes her grateful.
She captioned this photo with, "This is happiness."
Jolina also didn't make any effort to conceal her eyebags, and used the hashtag "#OkNaOkLangAngEyebags"
