As loving mom to her two children with husband Kean Cipriano, Chynna Ortaleza likes to share some of the memorable moments with her kids Stellar and Salem on social media.
Last January 21, the 38-year-old actress posted about the process of how she is currently teaching her four-year-old daughter Stellar how to learn with numbers. Stellar’s name was inspired by one the songs of her and Kean’s favorite American rock band Incubus.
On her Instagram account, she wrote, “The other day we were really struggling with the 100 board. Like para akong naiiyak… kasi fear ko na mag ka fear sa numbers si Stellar. Bilang nung bata ako ay talagang hirap na hirap ako... actually hindi lang nung bata... kahit ngayon!
“But I learned a few things about her learning curve. She needs to sleep on a lesson. No fail... the next day her difficulty understanding will transform into performing the exercises with ease.
“Also as a parent, try to reprogram. Be conscious & try to stop yourself from projecting your fears unto the child. I am so guilty of this. I fail at it. However, I am trying to step back & just watch her grow into herself instead. My child is teaching me A LOT about everything.
“Here we are reviewing again.. she says kasi she wants extra time to practice because she wants to learn.
Three years after having Stellar, Chynna gave birth to their son Salem in September 2019. His name means "peace" in Hebrew.
