She’s in full-on mommy mode!
Anne Curtis is taking her sweet time with her baby girl Dahlia Amélie as she shared she’s in no rush to make her showbiz return after her maternity leave.
While there have been movie offers already, she has not started reading scripts.
“I think I will start reading next year. Pagbalik ko,” said Anne during a Facebook live interview with host/eventologist Tim Yap.
“But I don’t think I will start shooting yet until Dahlia is one.”
The first-time mom explained that she would want to witness all her baby’s firsts before going back to work.
“I wouldn’t say I’m in a rush to start working again just because, lalo na for the first year of Dahlia’s life, I really wanna be there and really see all of the firsts that will happen.”
“I just feel very happy and blessed that I get to spend this much time with her na talagang 24/7 magkasama kami,” she shared.
Given the COVID-19 pandemic, the actress-host said she’s making the most out of the time she was given to have quality time for her little family.
Despite her maternity leave, Anne shared it was not a typical break for her. The pandemic has delayed most of what could have been special moments for their family such as Dahlia meeting her grandparents from her husband Erwan Heussaff’s side.
“There are little struggles like that. It’s kinda heartbreaking because if this didn’t happen, she would have met them already so there are things like that that I find hard,” she said.
When asked what the greatest lesson she has learned from her baby girl is, Anne said she realized how precious time is.
“That time is so precious just because I feel like it was just yesterday that I had a newborn and now she’s eight months and it went by like that,” she said.
Anne then advised everyone to value their time with the people they truly care about.
The newbie parents welcomed their first child last March 2019.
Anne gave birth in Melbourne, Australia, where their family has decided to stay after COVID-19 lockdowns were imposed.
