Kristine Hermosa and Oyo Sotto both want a baby girl


090611-kristine_main.jpgKristine Hermosa and Oyo Sotto were among the last guests to arrive at the Star Magic ball at the Manila Peninsula Hotel last September 3. Although she’s already five months pregnant, Kristine still looked beautiful and sexy with her baby bump barely showing. “Wala ka naman magagawa kapag buntis ka eh. Sa bahay lang then I go to the gym. Now that I don’t have any work commitments, I have all the time in the world to do what I feel like doing. Masarap yung feeling. Siyempre very thankul naman kami kay God. Alam naman natin na answered prayer din talaga.”

Oyo further shared that he could hardly believe the good news the first time he learned that Kristine was pregnant, three months after their unforgettable beach wedding in Batangas. “Yung first few months hindi ako makapaniwala eh. Kahit ngayon kapag tinititignan ko [yung tiyan niya] parang medyo maliit pa. Siguro kapag nagpaultrasound na si Tin at malaman na talaga namin yung gender nung baby, mas mapi-feel ko na. Actually, pinagpre-pray namin na sana girl. Wala pa kaming pangalan na naisip kasi gusto muna namin siguraduhin na girl talaga bago kami mag-decide.”

When asked if he’s ready to be a father, Oyo said that he makes sure that he spends quality time with Tin and their baby as early as now. “Sa akin kasi you’re never ready until you’re there. Hanggang sa wala pa, hindi mo talaga masasasabi. Halu-halo yung emotions ko—happy, kinakabahan at takot. But as much as possible I read stories to the baby kasi sabi nila maganda daw yun. Tsaka pinapakinig ko ng classical songs so every night may music ‘yan. Pero kapag may work ako, minsan lang.

Kristine related that she’s very happy with the love and support that Oyo has been giving her, especially now that she’s with child. “Napakamaalaga naman nito kahit hindi ako buntis. Kung meron mang nagbago sa relationship namin, siyempre mas naging intimate kami sa isa’t isa. Tapos mas klarong-klaro na husband and wife na kami talaga. Si Oyo nawi-weirduhan lang siya everytime na kinakausap niya yung baby, pero ginagawa pa rin niya.”

But even though family life would be her main priority, Kristine explained that she wouldn’t totally give up her showbiz career even after the baby’s born. “Siyemre kailangan ko naman tutukan yung baby for a while. Pero once in a while pwede naman ako mag-TV guesting or kapag may show na madadaan sa schedule. Huwag lang siguro yung full-length soap kasi parang one week kaming walang tulugan dun. Siyempre nami-miss ko naman ang pagarte kasi for how many years yun ang ginagawa ko.”

As it is, Oyo has no objection to Kristine going back to work in due time. “Oo naman. Wala naman yun problema sa akin. Alam ko naman na nalulungkot siya sa bahay. I know how much she loves acting and working so ayoko tanggalin yun sa kanya. She knows her limitations and I totally trust her.”
