She may not have the easiest time adjusting to her new role as a mother, but for Winwyn Marquez, just knowing her daughter is healthy and cared for makes everything worth it.
On Saturday, May 8, one week after she gave birth to her baby girl Luna, the beauty queen-actress took to social media to open up about her difficult but nonetheless fulfilling experience as a first-time mother.
In her post, the Reina Hispanoamericana 2017 titlist credited her unnamed partner for being hands-on with her while she adjusts to motherhood.
"I'm tired, no proper sleep, boobs are sore from breastfeeding, my body hurts, 'yung sugat masakit, deadma sa itsura, and adjusting uli sa madaming bagong bagay. But Thank God for Luna's daddy kasi he has been taking care of me while I take care of our baby. He makes sure maka-nap ako kahit konti and siya gagawa ng need gawin from palit diapers, hugas ng mga pang pump and ibang bottles lalo na pag madaling araw, fixing our food, etc. Mini-make sure niya we have what we need lalo na sobrang nag-a-adjust ako sa lahat and nahihirapan nang konti," she said.
"Kahit pagod kaming 2 makita lang namin si Luna na maayos, worth it lahat ng pagod!! Ngiti at saya pa rin ang kapalit."
Winwyn also gave her followers an update on her baby's health, as she shared their recent trip to the hospital for her one-week postpartum checkup.
"My doctor checked my sutures dahil I was in a bit of pain (normal delivery ako) but nothing serious naman additional meds lang and hopefully mag-heal na agad. Luna also got checked and healthy baby siya," she said.
Ending her post, the actress paid tribute to her fellow mothers, as well as single fathers as she marked Mother's Day.
It was only last May 1 when Winwyn shared the wonderful news that she had given birth to her first child.
The beauty queen first confirmed her pregnancy back in December. However, she declined to divulge details about her partner, insisting that she wants to keep this part of her life private.
Winwyn, who turned 30 just last May 4, is the daughter of actors Joey Marquez and Alma Moreno.
