Actress Isabelle Daza and stylist Liz Uy discussed motherhood in the latest episode of I Feel U.
When asked about their idea of the perfect parenting style, Isabelle remarked that she just wants her son Baltie to grow up knowing that "he has enough."
Baltie is Isabelle’s first child with husband Adrien Semblat.
“I am passionate about this. Now, children are being bombarded [through social media] with what they don’t have. I really am trying to equip Baltie to know that everything he has is enough. I want him to be grateful always,” Isabelle shared.
The actress continued, “Kasi ang hirap now, ang daming mga external factors that make us question ourselves. I don’t think it’s perfect [parenting style]. When people ask me what’s my dream for Baltie, I just want him to grow up being happy with who he is."
Meanwhile, Liz said that she wants her son Xavi to realize that the love he receives at home is more than enough.
“Gusto ko sa bahay pa lang namin, sapat na yung love. Pinapa-feel talaga namin we no matter what happens, we are here for him. Kami ‘yung talagang kapag dumating [‘yung time] in the future na may problem, siyempre gusto kong ipaalam sa kanya na we are here. Siyempre ayaw kong ipaalam na kahit mali siya, pero as a parent, itatama natin ‘yung mali pero we’ll be here for you. Parang enough na ‘yung love na nafi-feel niya at home,” Liz stated.
Liz and Isabelle are known to be part of the country's "It Girls." As they have become mothers, alongside the other women in the group (Georgina Wilson, Anne Curtis, and Solenn Heussaff), they shared that they still do bond but this time it all happens online.
“Same pa rin yung humor namin. In touch pa rin kami with what’s new sa fashion, gossip, politics. Nasa chat na nga lang. Hindi lang nagkikita. Online na lang kami,” Liz relayed.
Isabelle added that parenting is something that is also discussed in their group.
“Kasi we can all relate to pregnancy, giving birth, breastfeeding. Lahat yun pinagdaanan namin. It was a different stage in our life. Before partying lang tayo, going home at 4 a.m. Pero now, at 9 p.m. we want to be in bed na,” Isabelle said.
Xavi is the son of Liz with businessman Raymond Racaza. Liz recently announced their engagement.
It can be recalled that Liz shared that Isabelle played cupid between her and Raymond.
"Love you, you deserve it," Isabelle wrote on Liz's engagement announcement post.
To which Liz replied, "I love you!!!! You're the best cupid!"
In an interview with Philippine Star in 2018, Liz relayed that she first met Raymond when Isabelle introduced them to each other at a business meeting back in 2016.
