Bianca Gonzalez throws baby shower for new moms in Taguig
Bianca Gonzalez is well into expecting her second child with husband JC Intal, and this time around, she decided to pay it forward to new moms.
The lifestyle TV host is mom to toddler Lucia and she admitted that she still has one too many gifts from her first pregnancy.
“We still have the things from our firstborn that we will pass on to our second child, so instead, I wanted to share and celebrate motherhood with 30 first-time moms from different barangays in Taguig who don’t really have the luxury of access to these kinds of things,” Gonzalez said in an Instagram post yesterday, Oct. 10.
The post included video highlights of the event held last month, from gift bags to an individual photo shoot for the moms.

For this pregnancy, I decided to hold a different kind of baby shower. To be honest, in my line of work, we get so many gifts from people and brands and sometimes its too much even for one person. We still have the things from our firstborn that we will pass on to our second child, so instead, I wanted to share and celebrate motherhood with 30 first-time moms from different barangays in Taguig who don't really have the luxury of access to these kinds of things. ❤ (This happened one month ago.) . Thank you so, so much to Beng and Maricel of @theparentingemporium for giving a talk on "What To Expect", to Dra. Vivian Eustaquio for giving a talk on breastfeeding, to @hijkae who did a maternity shoot for the mommies, and to the office of Ate @piacayetano for helping me put together everything. 🙏🏼 . . A huge thank you to the brands I endorse who all said yes right away when I asked if they wanted to be a part of this, not asking for anything in return.. @sanicare_ph 💚 @johnsonsbabyph 👶🏻 @megamalunggay 🍃 @olayphilippines 💛 @downyphilippines 💓 Also to brand supporter @mommysmartsteps. You all made the mommies so, so, so happy. 🤰🏻💕 . . Edited by @janxkirstin
The bags included hygiene products for newborns and beauty products and health supplements for mom.
There were also talks about motherhood and breastfeeding and a message from Taguig Rep. Pia Cayetano.
Gonzalez has been open about her pregnancy journey and has admitted that she has lost weight because of severe vomiting. She has also revealed that she and Intal are expecting a baby girl and have named her Carmen. /ra
