- TV personality Andi Manzano conducted a “different level” of baby shower
- She went to a hospital in Sta Cruz, Manila and visited fellow moms
- Andi said she will never forget the experience of meeting other mothers
Celebrity mom Andi Manzano once again wowed a lot of netizens as she conducted an unusual baby shower inside a hospital in Santa Cruz, Manila.
KAMI learned that the promising TV and radio personality went to Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital and held a baby shower for a cause.
Andi, who is now pregnant with her second baby to GP Reyes, decided to come up with a different set up that is far from usual parties.
The baby shower, which aims to celebrate the delivery or expected birth of a child or the transformation of a woman into a mother, also became an outreach program for the actress.
"I wanted to reach out to other moms and just really show them how to take care of themselves, how to take care of their babies because all new babies deserve the best…" she said in her vlog.
During the special event, Andi initiated a dialogue with her fellow mothers and willingly heard their stories of success and struggles as moms.
She also gave simple gifts as appreciation to the head of households who embrace the challenge of motherhood.
There were 108 mothers who attended the occasion and the celebrity personally picked Fabella hospital because she claimed it is the busiest maternity ward in the country.
"They say (Fabella Hospital) is the Ground Zero for mother’s giving birth in the Philippines—the busiest maternity ward in the country. When you enter the place it's 3-4 moms per bed with their newborn babies,” the celebrity quipped.
"The babes are wearing a white tie-side shirts and moms were in their white gowns and headbands... Hundreds of mom’s give birth there a day and you’ll notice that every ten minutes there’s a new mother coming in with a newborn baby..." she added.
Upon talking to her fellow mothers, Andi shared that she was able to see the glow in the faces of those who are new to motherhood.
She also expressed that her experience in visiting the said hospital was memorable and she will never forget the words that she and the other moms shared with each other.
"I was able to talk to some of the new moms who were very open and happy enough to talk to a complete stranger. Some were first-time mothers while others had 3-4 kids already,” the former Unofficially Yours star explained.
"When I was talking to them I could really feel the peace and glow of new motherhood in their faces... I came in with a heart that was eager to give but in the end it was I who received and came out with a heart that was full and blessed. It was an experience I will never forget and will take with me always," she concluded.
Here is the heart-warming video of her visit:
In a previous article by KAMI, Andi’s first daughter Olivia made name for herself as she was hailed the youngest cover girl of “Preview.”
Andi, or Andrea Bianca Martin Manzano in real life, was born on March 29, 1987. She is Filipino radio jockey, television host, and actress who became the courtside reporter of FEU Tamaraws. She is expected to give birth to her second child on January 2019.
