In a previous interview, Ara revealed that they would be naming their daughter Amanda Gabrielle or Mandy for short.
Ara has been very vocal about being ready about motherhood and that she planned on breastfeeding her baby.
“Oo, magpapa-breastfeed ako. Para kasing ang sarap ng feeling na ikaw yung nagpapa-dede sa anak mo. Iba yung attachment ng mother and child kapag ganu’n. Ako, gusto ko ‘yung ma-experience,” she said in a previous interview.
But Ara revealed that her partner was more excited about their baby.
“Siya ang madalas mag search sa internet ng mga gamit ng baby like stroller, inaalam niya ang specs mga ganun ang tiyaga sa mga cribs, ang tiyaga niya mag search. Kasi ang plan namin kung ano ang mabibili namin iyun na rin ang gagamitin sa second baby kasi plano niya agad sundan,” she said.
As for the question of settling down, Ara shared that they are already talking about it, but she underscored that their current priority is their daughter.
Meanwhile, Baby Mandy isn’t the only blessing that Ara’s family is expecting as her younger sister, Cristine revealed last month that she is also pregnant with her first child from her boyfriend jiujitsu champion Ali Khatibi.
