Karylle on having a baby: ‘I’ve been preparing myself’


092414-karylle_main.jpgAfter getting married earlier this year, Karylle said she is nothing but happy after hearing the news of the upcoming nuptials of her ex-boyfriend Dingdong Dantes to Marian Rivera. “Ako kasi wala na ako sa eksenang yun so ayoko naman din sumingit (laughs). I think yun na lang siguro for now sasabihin ko. Ang ganda ganda ng kasal eh. Weddings are wonderful. I’m still on a wedding high and next month lalabas ako sa Metro Weddings so abangan niyo na lang yun. Everyone deserves to have a wonderful wedding and that’s what I’ve experienced and until now I can’t stop talking about our wedding. And nag-blog pa nga ako about the wedding kasi hindi ako maka-get over so huwag natin sirain yung maganda. Maganda yun eh,” she admitted.

The 33-year-old singer-host said she is still on cloud nine after finally becoming Mrs. Yael Yuzon last March. Karylle said she has become domesticated now. “I’m very good. Ang nagbago lang sa akin is marunong na ako mag-mop (laughs). Favorite ko mag-mop. I lived alone for a while pero parang madaming tumutulong sa akin. Pero ngayon parang tina-try talaga namin na kaming dalawa lang. Yung laba hindi ko na kaya yung portion na yun pero luto at linis ako. Magaling na ako maglinis. Yung luto hindi pa magaling masyado pero at least same level kami ni Yael. Masasabi kong hindi ako masyadong intimidated mag-try. Nung isang araw nag-re-request siya ng mga gulay gulay. Ginataang gulay kaya ko na (laughs). Yung simpleng food naman pero at least made with love,” she shared.

Karylle said it took her a while to get adjusted to living with someone else and it will take an even longer while before they decide to expand their family.  “Siyempre kasi ‘di ba ang Filipina na tulad ko na hindi talaga nakakaalis ng bahay hangga’t hindi kinakasal so ako siguro nakaalis lang ako ng bahay almost a year lang siguro before we got married so mga important steps yun eh. I believe talaga it’s important that we get to live together yung kaming dalawa lang and survive that at saka makapag-adjust kami na kaming dalawa lang bago kami magkaanak kasi parang ang hirap naman to bring someone else into the world kung you don’t know how to take care of each other first,” she said.
092414-karylle_main.jpgThe couple has been listening to different people regarding how to plan their future family. “Iba iba yung mga advice so pinaplano na hindi, huwag masyado dibdibin na bawal mabuntis kasi nga yung sinasabi ng ibang tao na nag nahirapan mag-conceive ay masyado yung pressure once you say I want it or I want a baby at this age or after a year. Parang masyado daw grabe yung pressure. So ako may plano at the back of my head pero ayoko masyado isipin kasi pag time na to have a baby talaga mahirapan. Slowly talaga I’ve been preparing myself like I want for example a water birth so I’m preparing myself mentally for that, little things like that. Working towards that direction,” she added.

Married life was an easy adjustment to Karylle and she shared the simple things they enjoy doing together in their condo. “Little things lang. Yun nga, madami akong na-e-enjoy. One of the things na talagang ginagawa namin na is we watch mga series from start to finish. We finished The Office. Ngayon lang kami nag-start ng Game of Thrones. Palagi kaming may movie date na ginagawa naming movie night with friends. So parang cute lang na may effort na to bond with friends. Minsan we invite sa bahay pero hindi pa kami ganun ka-ready,” she said.
