She also added that her stepmom checks in with her from time to time.
“And she’s organizing my baby shower, she texts me everyday, ‘How are you?’. ‘Take this lesson,’ ‘You have to have this when you’re pregnant,’ ‘This is for your baby’. So parang life got so much easier. And she’s doing this while she’s also a mother din to her kid, so thank you so much. Kakaiba din yung love nya sa akin. Thank you, Tita. “

“Thank you to this amazing woman who made all of this happen.”
“I really don’t know how to thank you enough for making magic happen for my baby’s baby shower from theme, to the guests, to the registry at mother care and even the setting up of the place. I can’t even fathom how much work you put into this night and even while taking care and being such a dedicated mother to baby Maria.”
