KAREL MARQUEZ RECENTLY gave birth to a healthy baby girl named Kaylie Audrianna at St. Luke’s Hospital. Masayang-masaya rin ang kanyang asawang si Arman Go at mommy na si Pinky Marquez.
Karel shared some of her experiences as a first-time mom. She has sleepless nights pero masaya pa rin daw siya sa panibagong kabanatang ito ng kanyang buhay. “After all the puyat and sacrifices you have to make for the baby, it’s really all worth it!”
She is thankful that her mom always helps her in taking care of the baby. “Iyong first week I was texting her, ‘Mom, where are you? Do you have taping? Kung wala, come here na lang.’ Parang nagpapa-simple lang ako sa kanya to help me. She’ll be here naman.”
Karel and Arman first met in Boracay. They got engaged in Australia last year. Arman is a former Star Circle Batch 5 member. Karel and Arman are married civilly.
Nilinaw ni Karel ang usap-usapan na tuluyan na niyang iiwan ang showbiz. “Di ko pa naisip talaga to leave showbiz. Actually, it’s really in my blood. Parang nasa akin iyong drive to perform. I’ll just take my time muna with Kaylie.” Matatandaan na biglaang nagpaalam noon sa isang teleserye sa kabilang istasyon si Karel. There were rumors that she was pregnant but Pinky vehemently denied it. She said health and scheduling problems were the real reasons why her daughter left. Karel took a rest from showbiz for almost two years and traveled to other countries like Hong Kong and Australia.
Gaya ng madalas kong sinasabi, babies are always lucky. Sana ay mas tumibay pa ang pagsasama nina Karel at Arman sa pagdating ni Baby Kaylie.
Kaibigan, usap tayo muli!
