Bianca Gonzalez, who gave birth to her second daughter Carmen Eliana in October 2018, admits that she still has a lot to learn about motherhood, as she makes time for both her children while continuing to pursue her work as a host.

"I can’t say na talagang fully-adjusted na kasi ang hirap," Bianca tells PEP.ph. "My newborn...just turned three months so parang every day is still a balancing act."

While she anticipates more sleepless nights, going through with them the first time with Lucia has helped her prepare.

"The second one is easier in a way, in a sense na parang alam mo na ang i-e-expect. Nung first kasi talagang nawindang ako, eh. Hindi ko alam, totoong walang tulog pala talaga. Talagang titira yung anak mo sa arms mo, gan'on."

Time management has been the biggest challenge Bianca and her husband PBA player JC Intal have been working on, but having a good support system—their other family members and helpers—is definitely making their parenting journey a whole lot easier.

"'Yong toddler ko, minsan 'pag kailangan ka, but you’re breastfeeding the other one...Parang ang hirap i-balance minsan but ayon, with a very supportive husband and with girls to help us at home, nagiging bearable talaga."

Juggling parenting and their professional responsibilities is tough, but Bianca notes that they are fortunate enough to have careers that allow them enough time for family.

"We’re very lucky kasi pareho kaming hindi nine-to-five 'yong job. His work, his training is always in the morning which is when I’m always home. And my work is usually [in the] afternoon, so one of us laging nasa bahay. Sobrang suwerte namin na gan'on 'yong work schedules namin.

"Sobrang imposibleng magawa lahat ng ito nang walang support system."

This is why she salutes working parents who have regular day jobs and are still able to take care of their children. "I always say na I learned it nung isa lang ang anak ko and now na dalawa, sobrang bilib ako sa mga single moms who work, at sobrang bilib ako sa mga walang help sa bahay and they still are able to take care of their kids," Bianca shares. "Kasi hindi siya biro, sobrang hirap."
