Toni Gonzaga says Baby Seve is the hardest working member of their family

Toni Gonzaga still gets nervous every time she works with Baby Seve. (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the press catch up with Toni and her sister Alex Gonzaga at the launch of their latest endorsement in Lola Café, Quezon City, on August 2.

Toni Gonzaga and husband Paul Soriano have already discussed the possibility of Baby Seve joining showbiz in the future.

While Toni isn't too keen on the idea, both she and her husband said that they will fully support Baby Seve in case he shows interest when he's older.

As a fitting headstart, Toni and Paul believe that doing commercials could help Baby Seve feel more comfortable working in front of the camera.

"Nung nag-one siya, yun, we became open sa opportunities that were offered to him," Toni told (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the press in an interview last Thursday, August 2.

She continued, "Parang we also felt na this will be a great memory when he grows up na, 'Did you know, among the family members, you're the most hard-working...

"'Because at age of one dinaig mo kaming lahat, nagtrabaho ka na.'" caught up with sisters Toni and Alex Gonzaga at the launch of their latest endorsement for Nature's Spring at Lola Café in Quezon City.


Toni also notes that her son still lives a normal childhood.

"It doesn't really demand so much of his time.

"He only does it for a special project.

"And he's not always on the set.

"He's a normal kid actually."

The 34-year-old celebrity mom keeps enough photos of Baby Seve working on these projects so that they'll have something to look back on once he's older.


"Actually, I keep every thing in a folder, kasi ido-document ko 'tapos ilalagay ko sa album.

"So when he grows up, alam mo yun pag nag-18 na siya, nag-21 na siya, nag-asawa na siya, ipapakita ko sa asawa niya, sa [anak] niya, 'Ayan ang daddy mo o...'

"Parang it's good for memories, to look back."


Toni admits that she still can't believe that she actually gets to work with her son now.

The Home Sweetie Home actress revealed that it was something she only dreamt about not too long ago.

"Iba yung feeling when you're working with your offspring.

"Kasi before, when I entered the business, sabi ko parang it's fun to do something with your sister, with your family.

"Parang there's a piece of home when you have your family member like on the set, or like in you working environment.

"Parang you feel, 'Ah, I can be myself. Nobody will judge me kasi kapatid ko yun, kilala niya talaga ako.'


"And then when Seve came in the picture, mas iba yung feeling.

"Parang hindi ka makapaniwala na ang katrabaho mo na, nanggaling sa 'yo.

"Parang nandiyan siya kasi he came out of you.

"Minsan hindi pa rin ako makapaniwala kapag kasama ko siya kasi parang yun yung mga bagay na iniisip mo, 'Mangyayari kaya yun in the future?'"

Toni and Baby Seve's commercial for the bottled water brand is their third project together.

The Kapamilya star admitted that she still gets nervous every time she works with her son.

Toni explained, "Kasi dati naman, parang sanay na ako, kasi alam ko naman kung anong ginagawa kapag nagta-trabaho.

"Pero pag nandiyan si Seve, parang wala, hindi ko na..."

She recalled one instance when she asked her hair stylist Macy Dionido to focus more on Baby Seve instead of her.

"Naalala ko nga yung hairstylist ko, 'Wag mo na ako ayusan, si Seve ayusan mo, yung buhok kasi ganun.'


"Sabi ni Macy, 'Ha? Hindi ka na mag-aayos?' Sabi ko, 'Wag na lang ako, siya na lang yung ayusan mo...'

"Parang nakakalimutan ko yung sarili ko."

As far as their talent fee is concerned, Toni said she'll save it for Baby Seve's future.
