- Ethel Booba said she feels fulfilled as a woman now that she has a daughter

- Now that she has baby Michaela, she promised to give it her all to become a good mother
Ethel Booba is indeed enjoying her experience as a first- time mother to her daughter Michaela.
Being a mother at age 42, Ethel feels fulfilled as a woman. She shared on ABS-CBN’s I Feel U, “Kasi dati may mga nang-iintriga sa akin na actually mga kamag-anak ko sinasabi na baog daw ako ganyan. Pero hindi ko lang sinasabi sa kanila na meron din akong problema, ayoko din sila mag-worry.”
“Pero ngayon, isa na akong ganap na babae, may matres ako! (Laughs) hindi ako baog at nakahabol pa ako,” she added.
Ethel admitted that there was a time when she lost hope in becoming a mother. She said she got tired of taking care of her “pamangkins” who eventually left her when they could.
“Before… Pero nung nagkasunod sunod na ‘yung mga pamangkin ko ako na ‘yung naging nanay nila. So napagod rin ako sa pag-aalaga, sa akin pinapa-ampon tapos pag malaki na aalis na. Ganun ang naging relationship ko sa mga pamangkin ko,” she said.
So when Michaela arrived she promised to give her all in making sure she becomes a good mother. She said her baby changed her and she vowed to take care of her.
“Actually si Michaela, (nagpabago) talagang dumating na talaga siya sa akin,” Ethel said.
She continued, “Ewan ko… Kasi iniisip ko rin talaga lately na parang grabe ‘yung pagta-trabaho ko, trabaho ako nang trabaho para akong tanga parang wala naman ako pamamanahan. Kaya nung dumating siya, iniingatan ko talaga siya at ibinigay talaga siya ni Lord.”
Baby Michaela was born exactly on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2020.
