In an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) on September 23, she recounted that special day she became a mom.

Their visit to the hospital was supposedly for a checkup. The dancer-actress' due date was September 12.

Sunshine narrated, “Check up lang dapat ako pero pagdating sa hospital, in-admit na ako dahil nagkaroon ng leak yung panubigan ko.

"May nakapalupot kasi kay baby yung cord niya, so nung una, ok na yung baba. Nung malapit na akong manganak, umakyat ulit siya.”

She had to undergo an emergency cesarean section "kasi bumabagsak yung heartbeat ni baby 'tapos babalik sa normal then babagsak ulit."

According to Sunshine, to say Alex was worried would be an understatement.

She continued, "Nagsabi lng siya na mag-bathroom lang siya, paglabas niya wala na ako sa room, dinala kaagad ako sa OR para ayusin, so bawal na muna siya pumasok.

"Hindi talaga siya pumayag kailangan makausap niya muna daw ako... then nung pinayagan na siya, tinanong niya lang ako kung okay ba ako, 'tapos nagsabi lang siya ng I love you."

She was overjoyed the moment she first laid eyes on her little one.

"Nung narinig ko pa lang yung iyak niya, then tinabi na siya sa amin ni Alex, naisip ko worth it din lahat ng hirap magmula nung first month hanggang sa ilabas ko siya."

She gushed, "Sa kanya na umiikot yung oras namin."

And even if she is now a member of Team No Sleep, Sunshine said she doesn't mind it at all.
