More than a year after her marriage to John Prats, Isabel Oli gave birth last April to a beautiful baby named Lily Feather whom they fondly call “Life.”
They say you can never truly know a person unless you start living under the same roof. Marriage, for the Dynamite Couple, taught them a lot while they discovered more about each other’s personality.
After a series of failed attempts and "false alarms," John felt immeasurably happy when Liv broke the good news that she’s finally pregnant.
“Nag-Hawaii pa tayo, sa Batangas lang pala mabubuo,” John laughingly teased during their joint appearance on "Magandang Buhay" last December 5.
“Masaya kami," he further enthused. "Tapos noong na-feel ko ‘yong heartbeat niya, doon naiyak ako. Iyak na iyak talaga ako doon, tears of joy.”
Isabel confessed that she discovered that John is more patient than she is.
"When it comes to puyatan, walang tulog, okay lang [sa kanya],” she related.
“Hindi ako nagkamali sa pagpili kay Liv na maging asawa kasi sobra naman siyang maasikaso sa lahat—sa bahay, kay Life, sa akin. Nakita ko talaga sa kanya yung asawa tsaka nanay na modelo,” John continued.
The pair first met in 2003, as part of the supporting cast for teleserye “It Might Be You.” Since then, they almost never had the chance to work together again since Isabel transferred to another network. It was only years after that they reunited, crossed paths again through a simple holiday greeting in which John mentioned Isabel on Twitter.
John and Isabel are hands-on parents to their first-born. Like any other parent, they want the best for their daughter.
The former child star admitted, “Ako naman kasi I want to document everything. Kahit ngayon, kami ni Life, mayroon akong video na sumasayaw kami kasi gusto ko ‘pag nag-debut siya ipapalabas ko 'yung noong baby pa siya nagsasayaw na kami. Gusto ko 'yung dino-document ko, 'yung lahat captured.”
Isabel, on the other hand, began exploring healthy homemade alternatives for baby food.
“In-introduce ko si Baby Life sa mga healthy na pagkain kasi ako mahilig ako sa junk food. Ngayon lang na medyo tumanda na ‘ko, ayoko na. Lahat naman sa bahay mga organic, veggies, sumobra naman,” she said.
She’s back in shape and it seems that no birth marks are visible at all. John also mentioned, “Masipag siya mag-work out.”
