SOFIA ANDRES Shares Joys Of Being A Parent In First Interview After Motherhood Announcement
Sofia Andres made headlines when she finally introduced her daughter with race car driver Daniel Miranda in an emotional Father's Day post. A day later, the 21-year-old actress spoke in length about the joys of pregnancy and motherhood in an exclusive video interview with ABS-CBN News' MJ Felipe.
According to Sofia, it was on Valentine's Day last year when she found out she was pregnant. "Nagulat din ako sa reaction ko kasi hindi ako naiyak. Honestly, sobrang saya ko nga eh, hindi ako natakot, wala 'yung ganung feeling," she admitted. "I think it was really meant na binigay siya sa akin ni Lord. Ang galing no? Kasi parang hinanda Niya talaga ako sa moment na 'yun, na-realize ko na ready ako."
At around the fifth or sixth month of her pregnancy, Sofia flew to Australia alone and went to live with Daniel while he was studying. On November 24, 2019 at 8:59 p.m., Sofia gave birth to baby Zoe.
"Masaya ngayong mommy na!" she announced. "Iba 'yung feeling talaga, 'di ko ma-explain. Sobrang saya, parang rollercoaster. Kinakabahan, 'di ko pa alam kung paano, pero 'yung makita mo na siya after nine months, ang galing ni Lord!"
Asked if she would be taking a break from show business to focus on taking care of her daughter, Sofia said: "Alam nating lahat na kailangan ko ring mag-trabaho. Iba rin kasi 'yung may trabaho ako at may trabaho ang tatay. Promise ko sa sarili ko na kahit nagtatrabaho ako, bibigyan ko ng oras ang anak ko kasi responsibility ko 'yun eh."
