"Totoo yung chismis," wrote the new mom in her first photo at home with Primo. "Walang masyadong tulog once you give birth. But then you discover how selfless you can actually be. Sleep isn't as important as attending to him. I love this little boy so much!!! Seems like he enjoyed his first night home!"
