Celebrity mom Rufa Mae Quinto shared her thoughts on motherhood and raising her four-year-old daughter Athena in an episode of PUSH Bets Live.
According to the actress-comedienne, Athena is a ‘mommy’s girl,’ and that she tries to set a good example for her child.
“I know baby siya pero I respect her feelings din. We do everything together basically. Saka I’m trying to be a good example. Hindi naman very good but as much as I can, I want to take care of her para lumaki siyang strong, healthy, and a good girl, God-fearing,” she said.
When asked about the rewarding and the challenging parts of being a mother, Rufa Mae went on to say, “Rewarding kasi nakakatuwa dahil mayroon kang inspiration saka reason to be a good, better person.”
“Ang pagiging mommy, masarap na masakit kasi every time na may mafi-feel siya, may pagdaraanan, umiiyak, ganyan, parang ikaw din, mas masakit sa’yo kasi nga mahal mo ‘yung tao. Pero na-realize ko rin na mayroon kang company. You will never be alone and get bored kasi lagi kang [may] something to do, and you’ll be inspired,” the celebrity mom said, adding that she tries to be the best version of herself that she could be.
Rufa Mae is currently residing in the United States with her husband Trevor Magallanes and daughter Athena.
