NATHALIE HART came to the presscon of “Abay Babes” proudly sporting her bulging tummy now on its 5th month of pregnancy. She looks so pretty so folks quickly concluded she must be having a baby girl, and they’re right. “We already have a name for her, Penelope,” she says. “Plan namin ng boyfriend ko to have a civil wedding in December, then a bigger wedding later after I give birth to our baby in January, 2019.”

She was already pregnant while shooting “Abay Babes”, but it’s only Cristine Reyes who noticed the changes in her. “We didn’t tell anyone else, kahit sa director naming si Don Cuaresma. He only knew nung matapos na naming i-shoot ang movie.”

“Had I known na buntis siya, di sana hindi ko siya pinagawa ng kung anu-anong mabibigat na eksena, lalo na when we were shooting in Bicol,” says Direk Don. “Pinatakbu-takbo ko pa siya nang alas singko ng madaling araw, pinatalun-talon, tapos nadulas pa siya. Naku, kung nalaglag 'yung baby, kasalanan ko pa, e hindi ko naman alam. But I take my hat off kasi she’s very professional. Para lang ’di ma-late sa shooting, dumarating siya sa set nang naka-tricycle lang at wala siyang alalay. Dala niyang mag-isa lahat ng gamit niya.”

So why didn’t Nathalie reveal the truth to her director and other co-stars? “Siyempre, ayoko namang bigyan nila ako ng special treatment sa set. But I must admit, when we were shooting this, first trimester ng pregnancy ko kaya may mga sungit moments talaga ako. Mabilis uminit ang ulo ko. So kung may mga na-offend naman sa akin noon, I’m really sorry. At least, natapos naman ang movie nang maayos.”

What’s her role? “Maganda ang role ko. Childhood friends kami rito na lumaki sa Bicol. Sa aming lahat, ako 'yung pinaka-ambisyosa. Naging model ako at gusto kong mag-showbiz. May boyfriend ako, five years na kami. Adventurous ako in bed dito at nang niyaya akong mag-threesome, pumayag ako. Ganon na lang ang laking gulat ko nang makita ko 'yung boyfriend ko at yung isa pang lalaki in bed with us, sila na ang naghahalikan kaya naloka ang beauty ko.”
