Divine Lee on creating an Instagram account for Baby Baz: "Every day I get messages na Baz makes them happy, na Baz is too cute, nakakawala ng stress. So every time na I get hesitant na I don't wanna share my son, I just look at those messages and keep on sharing him."


Divine Lee is definitely enjoying every moment as a mom.

The 36-year-old television host and her husband Blake Go recently welcomed their first baby, Basquiat Delfin.

In an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Divine shared her joys mothering Baby Baz.

She said, "I got married too late, 35, and got pregnant and gave birth ng 36 so parang for me, I'm really enjoying every moment...

"Wala akong parang, 'Nami-miss ko gumimik!' Wala akong ganun kasi parang sinulit ko naman talaga yung life ko di ba?"

Divine added, "Alam mo, kung alam ko lang ganito kasaya, siguro mga 20 years ago pa ako nagbuntis.

"But I'm so happy with the baby and... alam mo pag may baby sa bahay, iba talaga yung feeling.

"Every one is just laughing, the yayas, kami, parang excited kami umuwi.

"Dati, hanggang anong oras ako sa labas pero ngayon, parang kating-kati na ako na umuwi."

PEP.ph spoke with Divine last September 12, Wednesday, at the opening of Tadashi Shoji's boutique in Rustan's Makati.

UNSUNG HEROES OF MOMS

On September 10, Divine posted about their three yayas—Mimi, Jean, and RJ—who captured the attention of her Instagram followers.

Divine again spoke of her appreciation for their yayas in her PEP.ph interview, "I feel na sila talaga yung hindi nare-recognize. They make everything easier for all of us."

Divine said she's happy that her son will also share the same experience of having another set of parents.

She narrated, "I'm proud to say na I have parents, but I'm so close to my yaya, alam mo yun?

"Walang pagkukulang yung parents ko sa akin pero parang nagkaroon din ako ng second mom.

"Meron akong masasabihan ng mga problema, and I'm so happy that Baz has that kind of support system with him."

"Hindi naman 'to yung first time na pinost namin yung mga yayas namin because they're really part of our lives.

"But for you guys to give them recognition, is like sobrang nakaka-touch sa amin.

"Kinilig kaya kaming buong pamilya."

She said the one thing she appreciates the most about her nannies is their concern for Baby Baz.

"Alam mo yung yayas ko pa yung nagsesermon sa akin halimbawa, pag-uwi ko gusto ko kunin si Baz, 'Ay nako, mag-ano ka muna, alcohol...'

"Hindi ako nao-offend or nagagalit. I'm so happy that they're always there to guide us.

"I'm really lucky na I didn't have one of those... kasi yung yaya ko, simula bata pa ako and then sanga-sanga na lang, pamilya niya, pamangkin, ganun.

"But I think also, swertihan. I would say na swerte and also how you treat them.

"You have to treat them like family, di ba? And if a person feels na pamilya sila, hindi rin sila aalis.

"But we can't deny also na merong ibang yayas na are not really there for the job, mga sinasabi nilang sindikato, mga ganyan-ganyan.

"So parang you can't blame the amo, you can't blame the yaya. It's different per situation talaga.

"Ako, I'm just happy and so blessed with all my yayas."

SOCIAL MEDIA

Baby Baz is four months old, and so far, according to Divine, all is well.

Her main concern is exposing Baby Baz in social media.

She explained, "Ang challenge sa akin is to really more on social media. It's always a battle for me na, 'ishe-share ko ba yung anak ko sa buong mundo?'

"At one point, you know naman sa social media, baka malait siya, ganyan."

But seeing the positive comments whenever she posts a photo of Baby Baz, Divine said she feels inspired to share their mother-and-son moments with their social media followers.

Divine told PEP.ph, "Every day I get messages na Baz makes them happy, na Baz is too cute, nakakawala ng stress.

"So every time na I get hesitant na I don't wanna share my son, I just look at those messages and keep on sharing him.

"Meron naman pala siyang napapasaya. Hindi natin maiiwasan na ma-bash siya although wala pa, but the good outweighs the bad."

Divine also uses social media to share her experiences to first-time moms like her.

"What I do is I share my experiences. Sa totoo ah, yung panganay parang trial and error, ha.

"Hindi mo alam kung tama ba yung ginagawa ko, kung burp ba 'to or sounds like a burp.

"So parang I felt like I'm not a perfect mom, but at least yung pagkakamali ko, ishe-share ko na rin para yung iba hindi na magkamali."
