Kyla and husband Rich Alvarez have always wanted a second child.
Early this month, the couple of almost nine years and their five-year-old son Toby went on a European tour.
Aside from seeing well-known tourist spots, part of their itinerary was to visit cathedrals and churches.
In an Instagram post last January 18, Friday, the 38-year-old celebrity mom shared one of her prayers: to have another baby in the family.
She posted their family photo with the Le Mont-Saint-Michel as their backdrop and wrote, "Rich and I have this dream to travel around the world with our kids...
"(if we will be blessed to have another baby this year or next year...we prayed in every church we saw in this trip. And we claim we will be blessed with another one)."

Rich and I have this dream to travel around the world with our kid (or kids - if we will be blessed to have another baby this year or next year. We prayed in every church we saw in this trip. And we claim it’ll happen, in Jesus name). We want to show the kids that the world can be safe, kind, and fascinating. We noticed that travelling has been good for Toby. We saw how it helps improve his communication skills, his behavior and learn to follow family rules. It’s been really good for him, for Rich and I, for our little family. It builds this unbreakable bond between us. It’s a beautiful thing. ❤️ #bucketlist #travel #adventure #family #montsaintmichel
Kyla and her husband have been trying to bear another child since last year.
It can be remembered that the singer suffered from miscarriage twice, in March and November 2018.

Hi.. This is something that i’m not comfortable talking about. But i want to say this for everyone who has been asking where i’ve been the last couple of weeks. This August, I was so happy and excited. I thought i was gonna be a mom again! We wanted to keep it a secret until the 1st trimester is over. And then we’ll share the happy news to everyone. It was a sensitive pregnancy that i had to leave work for a while; take a bedrest, as advised by our doctor. That’s why i haven’t been on tv and i had to forego some of the events where i had to sing, and shows including ASAP in Australia. ASAP, Tawag Ng Tanghalan, and Cornerstone have been very good to me and i really appreciate and thank them for being so understanding. And Angeline, who was very kind and stepped in for me for Himig Handog. I felt bad for a while because i was missing so much work. But at the same time i was so happy and excited especially after seeing our baby’s heartbeat. Last week, we lost our angel. Again. For the second time. My heart was breaking as i was being brought to the delivery room. I was not going to have a baby. I was having a miscarriage again. I felt like i was given the most beautiful gift and then taken back from me so fast. It’s hard to keep my emotions intact. I cry at the stupidest things. Today was that lotion. I asked my husband to buy for stretch marks and he went hoarding a bunch for me at Rustan’s. I cry everytime i see it. Or the maternity clothes i ordered online that was delivered at home. Or when i see Toby’s baby clothes that i brought out to be washed again. Or whenever Toby would ask where his sibling went. It’s heartbreaking. Grief is not a once and done process. You don’t cry for a week, or a month, or a year and then move on. It’s hard. You don’t get it out of your system. I will always wonder about the birthdays that we will never get to celebrate. It was supposed to be September and May. This year has been very difficult for me and my family. But i will remain hopeful. I know everything happens for a reason. And through all the pain and trying experiences, i know something wonderful will happen. I’ll be back soon. Thank you. See you..
As she continued her post, Kyla said that trips have been helping Toby improve his well-being.
The Kapamilya singer narrated, "We want to show the kids that the world can be safe, kind, and fascinating.
"We noticed that traveling has been good for Toby.
"We saw how it helps improve his communication skills, his behavior and learn to follow family rules.
"It’s been really good for him, for Rich and I, for our little family.
"It builds this unbreakable bond between us. It’s a beautiful thing.
