Kylie Padilla: To be a mother is ‘a blessing’

by Alvin I. Dacanay

More than two months after announcing that she’s pregnant with actor-fiancé Aljur Abrenica’s child, former Encantadia star Kylie Padilla appears to be taking her condition and greater public interest in her in stride, and is now regarding her impending motherhood as “a blessing.” 

In an interview on the sidelines of beauty-and-health store chain Watsons’ Switch & Save campaign event at the Makati Shangri-La Manila hotel on March 16, the 24-year-old second daughter of actor Robin Padilla and his former wife Liezl Sicangco told the media that she’s emotionally ready to welcome her baby.

“From where I am now in my pregnancy, I’m ready, but I don’t think you can ever be ready for having a baby,” said Padilla, who’s now in her fifth month.

According to her, she and Abrenica—to whom she first told of her pregnancy before telling her mother—chose to wait for their baby to come out first before discussing concrete wedding plans.

Padilla said she has become emotional at this stage of her pregnancy, but she emphasized that it’s not “malala (serious)” and she could tell when her hormones are acting up.

Asked about the advice she has received since becoming pregnant, the actress said no one ever advised her to not push through it. But she did lament the negative talk it resulted, saying she read articles that said she wasted her showbiz career with her unexpected pregnancy while it was running wonderfully.

“I think… it’s such a blessing to be a mother,” Padilla said, adding that such talk about her and her career as a waste had angered her, and called it “shallow.”

“(But) now, when I read it, natatawa na lang ako (I just laugh). Actually, nakakatuwa, kasi, automatically, you’re becoming the mother na hindi mo alam (Actually, it gladdens me, because you’re automatically becoming the mother that you never realized),” the actress said.

“Everybody’s learning, it’s a learning journey,” she added. “The growth is so nice, (because before this), I was so up-and-down (in) showbiz. I had no middle (ground in) showbiz.”

Padilla advises expectant mothers like her to “enjoy your pregnancy, kasi alam ko na (because I know that) it’s very emotional and confusing, sometimes.”

According to her, they should take their pregnancy and everything that comes with it as it is, and accept whatever comes their way and embrace it, just like she did.

Regarding her career, Padilla believes that it will go forward “in a good way” after she delivers her child, which is due on July 30.

“I think I will be more responsible with my (career) choices,” the actress said. “It’s not all just for me. It’s not all just to be famous, or have money or whatever.”

She added that she’ll be more mindful of whatever work she takes on and the message it can convey, knowing that her child will watch it someday.

Switch & Save

Padilla’s interview came after Watsons introduced her as its newest Switch & Save ambassador, joining actors Edu Manzano, Lorna Tolentino, and Iya Villania; singer Christian Bautista; and Philippine Daily Inquirer columnist Tessa Prieto-Valdes as promoters of the campaign.

In the campaign, which was first launched in 2012, shoppers are persuaded to switch to Watsons and buy its comparatively cheaper Watsons-branded personal-care items, whose quality is the same as those produced by leading brands and sold at other stores at a higher price.

Padilla said she’s happy that Watsons chose her as the drive’s latest ambassador, adding that she and her sisters had enjoyed shopping at the famous store chain in Australia, where she grew up.
