I appreciate my mom… She's with me in times of celebrating, happiness and wonderful photo memories… but she's WITH me in MORE important days like in times of need, even with small things like when she visits our home, she makes sure I AM OKAY, helps me with anything from home stuff to Kobe, and do all the "not so Instagram worthy" things (dirty work lol!). I was brought up with so much love, simplicity and always looking on the bright side, despite the challenges during my childhood. Like now, my mom is here at home not to just visit for a bit, or try to carry Kobe for entertainment. She didn't need to take photos since Kobe and I's comfort's more important, and that hit my heart in a good way today… I just had to take a photo of her taking care of Kobe in between cooking an impromptu meal from the pantry ingredients. I didn't ask her to do anything. It's heartfelt love. Indeed, I got it from my mama. Thank you for today. I'll make sure Kobe has this too – Empathy. Kindness. A good heart. Just like Keiley and Kyler. 💓 ILY, @pinkmarquee!
“Even with small things like when she visits our home, she makes sure I AM OKAY, helps me with anything from home stuff to Kobe, and do all the ‘not so Instagram worthy’ things (dirty work lol!),” Marquez added.
Karel said Pinky’s visit “hit [her] heart in a good way,” especially because Pinky prioritizes their comfort. She also spoke about inheriting Pinky’s way of expressing love, “I didn’t ask her to do anything. It’s heartfelt love. Indeed, I got it from my mama.”
The singer-actress further stated that she will make sure baby Kobe will grow up with empathy, kindness and a good heart, like his elder siblings Keiley and Kyler.
Kobe is Karel’s first child with her second husband, businessman Sean Fariñas. JB
