Angelica Panganiban took her hat off to all the mothers out there as she reflected on her two months as a first-time mom.
The actress recently shared her motherhood realizations on Instagram, getting real about how challenging it’s been to sneak in some time for herself. “Bago ka magpadede kapag 4:00 a.m. na, magsipilyo, hilamos, at umihi ka na. You’ll never know kung papayag pa ba siyang magpababa sayo (ibulong mo na din kay Lord na sana makaligo ka sa araw na ito),” she wrote in the caption with a laughing emoji.

Sharing more tips and musings on parenthood, she noted the importance of having everything she would need by her side when breastfeeding, including remote controls for TV and aircon, book, phone, charger, water, and snacks.
“Pangatlo, hindi ka na makakapagdamit. Tanggapin mo na, na nakabra ka na lang hangga’t manawa siyang dumede sayo. Kasama na rin dito ang pagsuklay ng buhok. What is hair brush na po tayo. Opo,” she jokingly said.
Angelica added that she has learned to eat a lot and fast, but also without much noise. “Bawal ang kalansing ng kubyertos at baka magising mo ang nabudol mong baby.”
When the baby is finally asleep, that’s the time she can calm her mind. “I know madami tayong gustong gawin at ma-accomplish. Pero, tanggapin mo nang hindi ka naman talaga makakatayo sa kinauupuan mo. Kaya matuto kang matulog nang nakaupo,” she continued.
“Saludo ako sa lahat ng ina. Mabuhay tayong lahat,” said Angelica.
Angelica welcomed her baby girl Amila Sabine on Sept. 20 with her fiancé, businessman Gregg Homan. The new parents, who confirmed their relationship in January 2021, got engaged when Angelica was just four months pregnant.
