Kapamilya actress Sofia Andres describes her motherhood journey as challenging and exciting. Nights are sleepless but she’s happy, for at the end of the day, her Baby Zoe’s cuteness is enough to make up for all the weariness.
Sofia’s shocking announcement about embarking on a motherhood journey received positive reaction from the public. In fact, her daughter Zoe can now be considered as one of the most loved celebrity babies on Instagram, with more than 200, 000 followers. Pure joy can be noted in Sofia’s face as she thanked everyone extending love and support to her little family.
Sofia would not deny that she was scared at first, not knowing how now-partner Daniel Miranda and both their families would react to her pregnancy. She mustered the courage to tell Daniel and his response was priceless. “That was the first time I saw him cry like a baby,” she recalled.
When it was time to tell her parents, Sofia sought her sister’s help. The latter got tearful and surprised but she made sure Sofia would get the support she needed. Sofia said her mom got emotional upon getting a hold of her ultrasound photos while her dad was a bit silent and was more concerned on Daniel’s plans for her. She decided to keep the pregnancy a secret to the public in order to avoid stressful situations.
The actress tried to hold back her tears as she talked about how motherhood made her appreciate her mom and dad’s sacrifices, and even the strict parenting style which she totally despised before. “At least, now I understand kung bakit sila ganu’n. Dati galit ako, nagrebelde ako but now I appreciate kung gaano nila ako kamahal and I’m giving it back.”
“I said sorry to them kasi hindi rin naman sinasadya. They said naintindihan nila and blessing din naman ang bata. Okay na sa’kin ‘yung fact na na-forgive nila ‘yung ginawa ko,” she further expressed. Sofia is grateful for her parents’ selflessness. She said her mom moved with her and Daniel to Australia to help her take care of Baby Zoe. She feels lucky to have a loving and dutiful partner as well, saying Daniel is even more worrisome than her when it comes to Baby Zoe’s safety.
Sofia and Daniel already talked about their future plans especially on getting married but for now, they both agreed not to rush things.
