Nathalie Hart is due to give birth on January 4, 2019 based on her ultrasound.
The actress wants to deliver her baby girl in Sydney, Australia.
Nathalie has also chosen the name Penelope for her daughter with Indian fiancé Mayank.
"Yun ang pangalan na gusto ng Tatay ko bago siya mawala," the actress reveals. "Yun ang gustong-gusto niyang name. At dahil dun, yun na lang din ang ibibigay kong name para maalala ko naman ang Tatay ko every day.
“Siyempre, every day kong tatawagin ang anak ko.”
Her dad died because of cancer in 2017.
Nathalie is set to fly out of the country at the end of the month, but she will make a side trip to India first to visit her future in-laws, before heading to Sydney.
“Wala na, e, plus na yun sa buhay ko,” she says.
Nathalie postponed her trip for a few weeks so she could attend the premiere night of her latest movie Abay Babes— which also stars Cristine Reyes, Kylie Verzosa, Roxanne Barcelo, and Meg Imperial—held on September 17.
She tells PEP.ph, “Actually, aalis na ko [dapat] before premiere night. Pero ang ginawa ko, sinabi ko, kailangan kong umabot sa premiere night. Kasi, hindi ko na makikita itong four girls.
“Next year, kung saan-saan na kami.
“Yung buhay ko, iba na. Pagbalik ko, I don’t know where I’m gonna be. I just wanna enjoy this moment before I leave and when I come back, meron pa naman akong babalikan sa pelikula. May pelikula ako sa Viva.
“Kailangan ko lang mag-ready and make sure that my body is back to normal.”
Nathalie, who holds an Australian citizenship, says Mayank will be with her when she gives birth.
She notes her fiancé, whom she already calls her "husband," is very involved in the pregnancy.
“Ang husband ko, susunduin niya ko rito, pupunta kami ng India, then sasamahan na niya ko sa Australia. Very hands-on ang partner ko kaya kinikilig ako.
"Pero siyempre, kailangan ganun. First baby niya at first baby ko rin."
She continues, "And then, sabi ko sa kanya, lahat ng kapatid ko nagtatrabaho na. Wala na kong Tatay and yung Nanay ko, nagtatrabaho na rin.
“I need his support and I need him to be there for me. And yun naman ang sinabi niya from the start, 'I’m gonna be there for you.'”
The 26-year-old sexy actress reveals her fiancé is a year younger than her, and laughs off insinuations that her future daughter's daddy is a "dirty old man."
Nathalie plans to stay in Australia for four months after giving birth.
She explains, “Kailangang kumpletuhin ko ang shots ng bata. Kailangan ko rin magpahinga. Hindi ka naman pusa lang na nanganak. Hindi naman ako pusa. Magpapagatas pa ko.”
The mom-to-be also wants to breastfeed her newborn, but while she is excited about her journey, she also approaches it with caution.
“Handa na ba ko? Hindi ko masasabi.
“Hindi pa naman dumarating yung araw na yun. I think, lahat naman ng nanay kapag dumating sila sa point na magpapagatas na sila hindi naman nila kailangang gawin, e.
“So sa akin, hindi ko na kailangang alamin. Alamin ko na lang sa araw na yun.”
While she's out of the country, Nathalie will remain visible in showbiz as she still has two projects yet to be released.
“Meron pa po akong dalawang pelikula na hindi pa lumalabas, yung Sunday Night Fever kasama si Diether Ocampo, siya yung leading man ko. And then, meron pa kami yung for TV na Barbara, ako si Barbara.
“Kaya kahit na wala ako, baka may lumabas pa.”
