Spectators were amazed at how actress Mylene Dizon stillmanaged to look sexy while being pregnant with her second child when she walked the ramp last night, October 23, for the Folded & Hung Streetcast Fashion Showheld at the A-Venue in Makati City.
Mylene, together with her former boyfriend and father of herchildren Paolo Paraiso, was one of the main stars in the Holiday collection of F&H plaidclothes.
Ronald Pineda, president of the company, choseMylene and Paolo because, "They are a cute couple. They're hip, sexy, and very fashionable as a couple, so sila 'yongchoice namin for the brand."
The actress, who is four months pregnant, said that she doesnot feel any change in her body, except that she gets lethargic and sleepy mostof the time.
"Wala, tamad lang ako, antukin," said Mylene. "Kanina noong nag-lunch kami ng anak ko [Tomas], nakatulog ako sa silya."
She added that Paolo is very helpful with herpregnancy. "Paolo always asks kung maygusto ba akong pagkain or may kailangan ba ako."
The actress also described the concern of Paolo for herand their second child. "From him, fromhis family. I know that they arethere. Kasi si Paolo, ‘Mom, are youokay? Do you need anything? Are you hungry?' Mabait talaga siya, e."
STILL THE SAME SET-UP. Does this mean that their set-up has been changed?
She immediately clarified that they're still good friends."Hindi pa rin, ganun pa rin ang set-up namin, hindi pa rin nagbabago."
Although Paolo is persistently wooing her again, Mylene couldnot answer directly if there's a chance for them to become lovers again.
"Ang hirap ng tanong. Hindi ko masabi," she said, "Ayokong magsinungaling sa anak ko, so ayawkong mag-predict ng possible na mangyayari. Now, we are just comfortable, the pregnancy is very easy. He's very supportive and we're good friends,so we'd like to keep it at that first."
She continued, "Hindi ko talaga alam kung ano ang mangyayarisa amin, hindi sanay ang mga bata. Sobaka, baka lang, baka 'pag nandiyan na ang mga bata, you'll never know. Baka nga magkabalikan. We'll see. Siyempre panahon lang talaga ang makakapagsabi kung saan papunta itongrelationship namin ni Pao."
The actress-mom also said that the idea of marriage has notcrossed her mind yet.
She related, "Hindi pa talaga pumapasok sa utak ko at sakaayaw ko naman pilitin na magpakasal just because meron kaming mga anak. I want to be careful about that also, notonly for me but especially for the kids.
"Ito na nga na hindi kami talaga magksama, paano kung ikasal'tapos din kami? I don't think that isfair for the kids, siyempre. Right now,kung saan lang makita ng mga bata na masaya ang mommy nila, ang daddy nila, athindi nag-aaway."
What's keeping her from marrying the father of her children?
She answered, "Hindi ko alam, hindi ko alam talaga. Sana masagot ko ang mga tanong na ganyan,pero it's really diffucult to answer that question. Siguro me, I just want to wait for thattime, that time, that feeling. Ayawkong pilitin. Gusto kong dumating nangkusa na ready na it is Paolo. Ayaw kongmakinig sa mga suggestions. Ayaw kongmakinig sa mga pagbubuyo lang ng mga tao. Gusto ko manggaling talaga sa puso ko."
A reporter then asked, "Mahal mo pa rin si Paolo?"
Mylene did not hesitate to answer. "Of coure, I care a lotabout Paolo," she replied. "Bukod sa ama siya ng mga anakko nga, we've gotten really close and gotten to know each other. You know, we want to help each other dinnaman. Kung hindi lang mag-lovers omag-asawa, e, bilang magkaibigan. We'dlike to look out and take care of each other."
Mylene has the children uppermost in her mind. She vows to be always truthful with them, particularly with her first-born Tomas.
She said, "Hindi rin naman kami nagsisinungaling kayTomas. Sinasabi namin na, you know,‘Daddy lives in another house.' Naghahanap si Tomas pero ayaw naming pinasisinungalingan. Kasi, ayaw namin siya magtanong lateron, i-explain kung bakit."
OFF TO MOROCCO. Mylene will leave for Morroco to represent her movie 100.
"Pupunta ang 100 sa Morocco saNovember para sa Marrakesh Film Festival. Magko-compete ang 100 doon. 'Tapos pagbalik namin sa December 3, ipapalabas na ang pelikula naming 100sa mga theater.
"Hindi ko palalagpasin ang Morroco, angbongga-bongga doon, grabe! At saka 'yonay pagkakataon kong makatawid sa Europe kasi isang kandirit na lang, Spain na'yon, e. I'm going there with mysister, Eugene [Domingo], and Direk Chris Martinez, and Marlon Rivera, 'yongaming producer. Sana, sana talaga, maymaiuwing trophy ang 100, 'tulad ng nangyari sa Pusan [International FilmFestival]." (Click here to read related article )
