Ciara Sotto Is Happy And Excited For Her First BabyCiara Sotto is only four months pregnant, but she said she's already excited to see her first baby. Ciara has been married to husband Jojo Oconer for four years, so they feel really blessed to have this pregnancy.
At first, Ciara wasn't sure she was pregnant because she thought she was just delayed since she was stressed from filming the indie film "Hari ng Tondo" and "Celebrity Dance Battle."
They were "super happy" when they found out she was pregnant. It was her cousin, Danica Sotto-Pingris, that she first showed the pregnancy test to. She asked her if it means she's pregnant because that was the first time Ciara used a home pregnancy kit.
She then told her mother, Helen Gamboa, who was equally delighted to know she's going to be a grandmother again with Ciara's baby. They've all been pushing her to have a baby already, so when they found out she was pregnant, they were very protective of her.
She wasn't allowed to drive anymore, Ciara said.
The dancer-actress isn't sure yet if her baby is a boy or a girl, although the first ultrasound said it might be a boy. She wants to make sure, so she'll be undergoing the test next month again.
They are already preparing for the arrival of their baby. They are making a nursery already in their condo unit.
She has a relatively easy pregnancy. She was just sickly the first three months, but she has gotten used to it already. She doesn't have any specific food that she likes.
Ciara said she suffers from morning sickness, though. She wasn't as picky in her food as in her sense of smell. Sometimes, she gets irritated by the smell of strong perfume.
She had her mood swings, too, Ciara shared. She can be cranky at times with her husband, especially when she just wants to be quiet at home.
She has fears in her pregnancy, of course. She was advised to stay away from things that won't be good for the baby. Her sisters all have kids, so they helped her with her pregnancy.
Ciara said she fears that she may be a stricter mom than her own mother. She was a very cool aunt, but she doesn't see herself as a cool mom too.
She is not thinking yet of the child's baptism, but she is sure Danica and Sharon Cuneta will be the godmothers.
They don't have plans of how many babies they want, but Ciara said they will see each baby as a blessing.
For now, Ciara doesn't see herself completely lying low from showbiz even after she gives birth, especially if there is a good project offered to her.
