The actress also shares she’s working on a TV new project.
Kapamilya actress Beauty Gonzalez and her partner, artist Norman Crisologo celebrated the first birthday of their daughter, Olivia Ines on Sunday, February 5 at Whitespace Manila.
The art-themed children’s party was well-attended by the couple’s family members and friends such as celebrities Empress Schuck, Dominic Roque, Jodi Sta. Maria, Ellen Adarna, Joem Bascon, Kit Kat, Bianca King, Julius Babao, Christine Bersola-Babao and Ria Atayde, among others.
According to Beauty, the celebration was planned as early as September last year since they are frequently travelling in and out of the country. “Very kakaiba siya from all the birthdays… My partner, my boyfriend, mahilig siya sa art so that’s why it’s art,” she said about their party’s theme and program proper.
Since she became pregnant with her daughter, Beauty took a hiatus from show business. Now that her daughter has turned a year old, will she be returning to acting soon?
“Malapit na. May ginagawa na ako ngayon pero siyempre, hindi pa dapat sabihin pero hopefully, malapit na (ko) bumalik sa TV,” she said, revealing that this will be a teleserye.
Sharing her excitement, Beauty added, “Kakaiba ‘yung ginagawa ko. It’s totally different from all the things na ginagawa ko na comedy, ganito, ganyan. Ewan ko kung matatawa ba kayo o matutuwa… Basta, exciting.”
“Marami kami. Maraming mga new faces na galing ibang network then makakasama ko so it’s something na nakakasabik.”
Since she became a cover girl of a men’s magazine before, Beauty, who remained fit after giving birth, was asked if she will still be interested to pose for one. She cheerfully answered, “’Di ko alam. I mean pag-iisipan ko muna ng mabuti kasi parang syempre, maganda na ‘yung nagawa ko before, eh. So ‘pag gagawa ulit ako, gusto ko mas gumanda pa. Pero not too exposed, ‘yung gano’n pa rin na style na gusto ko so pag-iisipan ko muna ng mabuti kasi ngayon na may anak ako, I don’t want na may makikita siyang, you know. Gusto ko maganda pa rin so we’ll see.”
Now that she is gradually getting back at work, Beauty shares how she ensures getting to spend quality time with baby Olivia. “’Pag uwi ko, bumabawi talaga ako for my daughter. So far, nakabalik na ako sa trabaho lately, okay naman kami and nandiyan naman si Norman, ‘yung boyfriend ko to take care of her while I’m at work. And ‘pag wala akong work, talagang bonding kaming dalawa.”
Speaking of Norman, do they have plans to tie the knot soon?
“Well, napapag-usapan namin ‘yun and siyempre, ano lang muna, step by step kasi kapapanganak ko lang last year tapos ngayon birthday tapos babalik ako sa work. I mean, ‘yung marriage kasi parang kailangan it takes time na pag-usapan…So step by step. Napapag-usapan namin and I’m happy na napapag-usapan namin.”
