All blooming in anticipation, Sam Pinto-Semerad is just counting the weeks as to when she can finally hold her daughter in her arms. Currently in her third trimester, she shares that her pregnancy has been smooth so far.
“No morning sickness. My sense of smell is heightened to another level during the first trimester. Now I’m on my third, I just feel heavier, bigger, and swollen. Just the usual emotional rollercoaster but pretty chill,” Sam shares.
She admits that her excitement is mixed with nervousness because having a child is a totally different adventure for her and Anthony, but they’re very grateful nonetheless for the chance to welcome a new life to their family.
We share with you some snaps from Sam’s maternity shoot shot by Niko Gonzales. Scroll through and read more of our conversation with her.
Q: Can you tell us about the time you found out you were pregnant? How did you feel and what were your emotions then?
“So I found out in December 2020. I couldn’t believe it! I cried so much. Haha. Well, cause we were planning to have a baby in maybe 2 years still. But of course the blessing came. Accept the blessing. And now, I know it happened at the perfect timing. Now that I’m 31, and this whole covid, nothing or no where to go or do.”
Q: What are you most excited about now that you’re about to give birth?
“I’m so excited to meet her already!!! Excited and scared of how this new adventure would be. It’s something so new to me cause I didn’t grow up with any babies or kids. Plus I’m scared of babies, I feel like they’re so fragile. But I think when it’s mine, it’s okay.”
Q: What type of mom do you think you’ll be?
“I think I’ll be a chill mom. I’ll just let her fly and do what she wants and support her in everything that she does. I won’t be crazy strict. I’ll make sure she knows what’s right and wrong, good and bad.”
Q: What kind of dad do you think Anthony will be?
“I think Anthony will be chill as well but a little bit stricter! That’s his little princess. But he’ll be the best and sweetest father, maybe a bit crazier, too, I think haha”
