Alicia Mayer is still not ready to divulge the identity of the father of her one-year-old son Caleb.
At the press conference of GMA-7's latest SRO Cinemaserye offering "Moshi, Moshi, I Love You"held last night, October 12, at the GMA Network Center in Quezon City, Alicia managed anew to keep the name of her partner secret despite the incessant probing of the entertainment press.
"Mas gugustuhin namin na pribado ang personality niya," Alicia politely begged off.
The PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) spokesperson said that settling down—although not entirely overlooked by the couple as part of their long-term plan—is still remote at this point in time.
"Napag-uusapan namin, pero hindi kami nagpaplano," smiled Alicia. "Ang focus niya ngayon, sa trabaho; ako naman, focus ko naman sa baby. Parang we're together lang as partners. Hindi pa naman napag-uusapan, although gusto namin in the future."
WELL-ADJUSTED MOM. Adjusting to motherhood, according to Alicia, was not much of a struggle.
"Hindi naman ako nahirapan mag-adjust, kasi ang daming sumusuporta sa akin. Andyan 'yong family ko, andyan 'yong mga kaibigan ko na tinuturuan ako kung ano'ng gagawin kong pag-aalaga sa baby. Tapos at the same time, nung buntis ako, pinag-aaralan ko kung paano gagawin ko pag dumating na 'yong baby. So ako, I really prepared myself para hindi ako mahirapan," she told PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal).
Alicia, who took a year off from show business to concentrate on her baby, feels her motherly concerns kicking in every time she comes home tired and exhausted from work.
"Naaawa ako, kasi hindi ko siya nalalaro. Parang bubuhatin mo lang tapos ibibigay mo na agad sa yaya kasi magpapahinga ka na. Nakaka-guilty kasi ako 'yong may physical attachment sa kanya, kasi ako 'yong laging may buhat-buhat sa kanya, tapos ngayon hindi na madalas because of work."
Now that she's already a mother, Alicia revealed her desire to stay away from sexy roles and daring pictorials despite the fact that she regained her hourglass figure in no time after giving birth through steady diet, exercise, and yoga.
"Gusto ko medyo mas serious na mga roles, tapos hindi na 'yong katulad ng dati na 'yong naka-bikini, tapos nagtatatakbo ka!" she laughed.
"Pictorial? Hindi na siguro... Kumbaga, hindi na rin ako comfortable to pose as a mom, baka makita pa ako ng baby ko paglaki niya. Ewan ko, para sa sarili ko lang 'yon, personal opinion."
