"At the beginning, I was really having a hard time, like talagang umiiyak ako. Umiyak talaga ako kasi I'm so young in the mind, I'm super sheltered.
"I don't know anything, and then all of a sudden, now I can finally make out freely with my husband pero hindi pwede or dahil kambal yung anak niya. I shared this before.
"Hawak hawak niya yung dalawang kamay so ako lahat ng paperbags, ang sakit sakit na ng ganito ko sa outlet. Pag nakita ako ng nanay ko, 'This is exactly what I' ganyan ganyan."
However, despite the initial shock at the beginning, Heart openly revealed that being a stepmother has made her "a better person."
"I realized also na, it's not always about you. These are kids, they're gonna have their bad days, maybe 97% of the time at a certain age."
When asked how she won Chesi and Quino's love, Heart simply said she was just being herself, "I'm also young."
According to Chiz, due to their age, the kids often frequently have things that they like and know of that Heart is also into.
"You can never be their mom," Heart began, "So don't pretend or don't try to be their mom," she said, revealing that the kids actually call her "Tita Heart."
