Preparing for a newborn’s arrival takes more than just gathering the baby care essentials. A mother has to also psych herself of the upcoming responsibility in looking after a newborn baby. If she happens to have children already, she will also have to orient them about the new addition to the family.

As she enters her 39th week of pregnancy, television show host Mariel Padilla is now counting down to the day she meets her second child, Gabriela. Just recently, the excited mom shared in her latest vlog how she has been preparing for the arrival of her daughter.

Mariel, who has already flown to the US with her firstborn Isabella, shares her priority is preparing her two-year-old to be a big sister. “I have to prep her mentally, emotionally that she is going to have a new baby sister. So ‘yun ang pinaka-challenge for me every day is how will make her understand she’s going to have to share mommy with someone now?”

The television show host introduces the concept of big sisterhood to Isabella by getting her involved in the preparation process, as well as reading her children’s books about having a younger sibling.

On the other hand, Mariel has also bought the necessities baby Gabriela will need and a few weeks ago, their emergency bags have already been prepared. Baby clothes, blanket, diapers, are just some of the essentials the television show host has packed. She also prepared their clothes for the few days that they will be staying in the hospital.

“We’re really just so excited to see Gabriela, to meet her. I haven’t even seen her but I already love her so much,” she said. “This is truly one of the best feelings in the world. When you know there’s life growing inside you and I’m treasuring every minute of it.”

It was back during Mother’s Day when Mariel shared the exciting news about her pregnancy. A few months later, she revealed she and Robin are expecting another baby girl.
