Sharon Cuneta says that she is open to the idea of adopting again


042611-sharon_main.jpgSharon Cuneta, who adopted a baby boy named Miguel last year, shared that she is open to the idea of adopting again, but added that she also has to consider the responsibilities that comes with it. “I’d love to [adopt again]. Pero you have to be smart about it in the sense na aware ka dun sa hindi lang ‘yung basta nag-adopt ka [dahil] nandyan siya,” she explained. “’Yung responsibility na bibigyan mo siya ng attention. Kaya mo bang hatiin ang atensyon mo?”

She continued that it would be wonderful to have a biological child, but “it doesn’t have to be a child na galing talaga sa ‘yo. There are so many kids who are in need of love and attention and ‘di ba so many unwanted, unfortunately. So andaming pwedeng bigyan ng pagmamahal.

The host-actress shared that one-and-a-half year old Miguel has brought their family so much happiness. “Masayang-masaya na kami noon with our kids pero sumobrang talagang dagdag ng kaligayan ng batang ito,” beamed Sharon. She continued that having a baby boy is a welcome change since all her kids are girls. “’Yung nakakatuwa ‘pag nakikita mo nilalaro niya truck, tren, kotse.” Sharon added that her husband Sen. Kiko is also very happy with their son, since he has been used to taking care of daughters Frankie and Miel.

Sharon said that she sometimes forgets that Miguel is adopted because the boy displays characteristics that are so much like hers and Kiko’s. “’Yung mga ate niya mahal na mahal niya, mahal na mahal siya. Takbo silang lahat ‘pag andyan sa bahay from school. Napaka-happy tsaka funny siya, sabi ko parang tayo talaga. Parang matalino, matalino talaga.” She added that many people comment that Miguel even seems to look like them.  “May baby pictures nga lahat ng mga anak ko may hawig siya kay Miel dito, may hawig siya kay KC doon may anggulo siya pero kamukha talaga siya ni Coco Martin,” Sharon said with a laugh.

Sharon has four kids: eldest daughter KC Concepcion, daughters Frankie and Miel Pangilinan, and adopted baby boy Miguel. She revealed that dividing attention among her four kids has proven to be challenging. “Kami apat pa lang nakaka-ano na ‘di pa nagsu-school si Miguel... Gusto mo lang everybody’s happy. Hindi ‘yung andami nga pero parang kulang, so okay na rin siguro sa amin ‘yung four.”

The Megastar also cited how much she admires her husband Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan’s parents who were able to give their nine kids equal attention while they were growing up. “’Yung parents ni Kiko sobrang galing. Nine sila [magkakapatid]. ‘Pag kinausap mo silang lahat ngayon, not one of them felt na parang nagkulang siya sa atensyon [ng mga magulang] and that is amazing to me.”
