Former GirlTrends member, Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition 4 alumna and proud mom Karen Reyes has never been this happy and fulfilled all her life.
It was during Mother’s Day last May when the actress shared to the whole world the “biggest blessing in her life”. She officially revealed in her vlog entry, "Ako po ay ganap nang isang Mommy,” adding that she’s a proud mom of two beautiful children. In the vlog, Karen revealed she had been pregnant with her firstborn Olivia while filming the movie “My Ex and Whys” in 2016 that starred Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil. Olivia is her eldest of two kids with Silent Sanctuary frontman Sarkie Sarangay.
Karen bravely shared why she chose to keep it in private for a long time, even from her mother, although people were already throwing speculations that she and Sarkie were already parents because of their child’s baptism photos that circulated online in 2018.
"Natakot ako kaya hindi ko nasabi agad. Natakot ako dahil hindi ko alam kung tatanggapin ba ako ng mga tao, kung may babalikan pa ako sa showbiz. Sobrang hindi ko alam nun kung ano ‘yung gagawin ko. Natakot ako sa judgments,” the former It’s Showtime mainstay explained.
But Karen’s vlog also meant she felt braver and stronger in realizing there’s nothing that should keep her from sharing to the world the people who complete her. “Why am I sharing this now? Shini-share ko siya ngayon dahil ang dami kong realizations ngayong quarantine. Siguro na-realize ko lang na bakit ko pa kailangang matakot eh nandito na ang lakas ko. Nandito na ‘yung mga nagpapalakas sa akin,” she proudly said.
And now that the whole world has already seen the two beautiful angels of Karen, Olivia and youngest child Lukas, there’s really no reason anymore for us not to be smitten with their charming and adorable pictures and videos! In this gallery you’ll see how much of a loving mother Karen is to her two babies. She never lets time pass without making them feel her love, either by playing with them or dressing them up in cute outfits!
In fact, one of the photos was taken during the celebration of Lukas’ first birthday last July 28. Karen took to instagram to post her birthday message to her beloved son. “You are my favorite unexpected blessing in my life. Mahal na mahal ka namin ni Daddy and Ate Bebu,” she said. “Sana lumaki kang mabait at faithful. I love you, anak,” she wrote in her caption.
Only days before Lukas turned one, Olivia, Karen’s eldest, celebrated her third birthday. Karen shared their photos together on instagram with a message “To my Olivia... Happy happy 3rd birthday, Anak! Ikaw, kayo ni Lukas ang dahilan kung bakit malakas, masaya at matapang ako.. Sobrang swerte ko sa iyo Bebu ko, meron akong malusog, bibo, malambing at mabait na anak siyempre makulit.” “Mahal na nahal kita anak kahit lagi na tayong nag-aaway hahahaha. Sana lumaki kang mabait ha. Mahal na mahal kita!” she added.
