Avid fans of Kapamilya TV shows, especially in the 2000s would probably recognize her as one of the most omnipresent young stars of her generation. With her striking beauty complemented with impressive acting chops, there’s no wonder that Helga Krapf was cast in a slew of programs back then under ABS-CBN and other networks, in spite of her not-so-successful stint in Star Circle Quest Season 1.
She got cast in a slew of TV programs and movies since she began her career in 2004, such as Spirits (2004), Super Inggo (2007), Kambal Sa Uma (2009), Imortal (2010), Mara Clara (2011), Kahit Puso’y Masugatan (2012), Honesto (2013), Pure Love (2014), and Pangako Sa ‘Yo (2015), until decided to step out of the limelight to focus on her pregnancy and in taking care of her Baby Amelie who she welcomed on March 25, 2015. She had her showbiz comeback in 2017, appearing in teleseryes Pusong Ligaw (2017), Sana Dalawa Ang Puso (2018), and FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano (2022).
Helga also graced several brand events, in which PUSH had the chance to catch up with her once in 2017. According to her, she’s enjoying motherhood and has been very hands-on since they didn’t have nanny. She likes dressing up her daughter, whose name she got from the titular character of the classic 2001 French film “Amelie,” especially with girl outfits since she tended to be boyish and very active.
She also gave her daughter a sort of feels of becoming a celebrity when they joined the family gameshow Bet On Your Baby in 2017 together with her close friend Zaira. They might have failed to reach the jackpot, but they apparently enjoyed their stint!
At present, the actress has been delighting her followers on social media as she regularly shares her and daughter Amelie’s journey, adventures, and shenanigans together, especially that they are currently based in Helga’s hometown in Germany. The little girl is now eight years old and in second grade.
Going through Helga’s Instagram account, it’s easy to say that she and Amelie are tightly bonded because of how they apparently love to spend time together. From playing and doing house chores together at home, going for an ice cream run, and attending the Holy Mass every Sunday, to travelling to different parts of Germany, Europe and the Philippines and taking on various adventures, there’s indeed no doubt that they are enjoying each other’s company.
Just like other mother-and-child tandems, the adorable duo is also fond of “twinning” or wearing matching outfits. Whether it’s loungewear, sleepwear, or gala outfits, they certainly have pieces to pair with one another
For Amelie’s eighth birthday last March, the Pusong Ligaw star posted a heartwarming dedication for her by posting cute snaps of her and of them together, and captioned it, “8 years a momma to you has been the biggest blessing and privilege. I love you always and forever, to the moon and back, to infinity and way beyond 3000. Happy 8th Birthday my brightest and silliest sunshine.”
