Aside from those incredibly chubby cheeks, Toni Gonzaga revealed another thing that sets her son Seve apart from other babies.
It is a habit, which Toni feels is very uncommon for kids his age. “Well, Seve is like his parents. He’s not a usual kid na maaga natutulog. He sleeps at 11 p.m.[pero] ’pag talagang super active, 12 [midnight]. He wakes up around 10 a.m.and then he takes his brunch,” she shared in an interview with Push.
His parents tried to make him sleep earlier, but the one-year-old just got to follow his own body clock. “We tried our best to make him sleep at 8 p.m., but it doesn’t work. He’s just so active. Like last night he slept before 12. There was so much going on in the room. He likes to read books and play with his toys, he likes his Legos and all that.”
The Multimedia Star added, “We don’t want to be too strict and impose a system on him. We give him the allowance to do what he wants, within of course the limitation that’s still proper and okay for him.”
Seve has his own bed in his parents’ room and it’s located close to a couch, where Toni prefers to sleep.
“He sleeps on the bed. I sleep on the sofa, because Seve has his own bed in the corner,” she said. “Up to this day ganun pa rin ang set up namin but when we travel we sleep in the same bed.”
But there’s more to Seve’s daily schedule than just nap and play times. Right now, he’s also taking classes and private lessons with a tutor.
“Si Seve now nagtu-tutor na siya. He goes to class ng weekends. Meron siyang class na tini-take for social skills and ‘yung tutor niya is for motor skills. Tuesday and Thursday ang tutor niya, and then on weekends dun ‘yung class niya,” said the “Pilipinas Got Talent” host.
Seve shares this tutor with fellow celeb kid Scarlet Snow Belo. “‘Yung tutor we got that idea ‘yung preparation niya when he goes to school na parang he knows na what’s going on. Same teacher as Scarlet [Snow Belo]. Recommended by Vicki Belo.”
Toni continued, “Actually, mas mabilis ‘yung development. In this day and age kasi you don’t really have that much time anymore to focus and sit down so there’s someone to help.”
Seve is Toni’s first-born with husband director Paul Soriano.
