Bianca Gonzalez finally talks about her struggles as a first-time mom.
This year has proven to be a big year for Pinoy Big Brother host Bianca Gonzalez Intal as she juggles the responsibility of being a first-time mom and returning to hosting duties in ABS-CBN. "We already finished our PBB Celebrity edition and currently we’re on our Teen edition and after this we are going to introduce pa regular housemates so matagal-tagal pa ang itatakbo ng Big Brother (laughs). And since I’m a first-time mom, parang dun pa lang my plate is full already especially since Toni (Gonzaga) will go on maternity leave soon. Basically with that ay punong-puno na ang sched ko,” she said at the Downy Boom Boom Pow campaign launch held last August 24 in Taguig city.
With her co-hosts Toni Gonzaga and Mariel Rodriquez both expecting their first children this year, Bianca said their bond as colleagues and friends have gotten deeper. "We always reminisce lalo na when we’re together, we can’t believe na nung nag-meet kami ang mga problema namin kung anong susuotin or boy problems ganyan (laughs) and now I have my baby and they will have their babies. It’s so special that we’re going through it together especially the two of them halos magka-batch talaga. But we always talk about how special it is na magkakasabay na naman kami in this next phase of our lives,” she told Push.
With Toni expected to give birth soon, Bianca offered her best advice when it comes to motherhood. "I remember na ang advice na lagi kong binibigay kay Toni at Mariel is to sleep as much as they can kasi pag nanganak na sila talagang no more sleep. But I think another one that I wish I was told is that it’s really hard. Like there will be times na parang iiyak ka na lang while your baby is crying kasi talagang pagod na pagod ka na and you won’t know what to do. Akala ko kasi when I look at magazines or Instagram feeds parang lahat ng posts about motherhood beautiful at effortless, eh bakit ako parang effort na effort? So I just keep telling them it might be easy for them but for me it was difficult talaga. So I tell them to keep an open mind and to be ready,” she explained.
