Here an interview of Carol (from Contigo!), few days before she gave birth to Isabella. I like this interview (:
Thanks Ingrid, I would never find it without your blog!
Carol Celico talks about pregnancy and motherhood: Kaka’s wife gave an interview to Contigo! few days before giving birth to Isabella.
”She did not stop kicking, she is moving all the time. Luca (first child who turns three years in June) was more quiet,”said Carol Celico gospel singer, 23, at the ninth month of pregnancy. The baby was born on April 23 in Sao Paulo.
In March, mother and son traveled from Madrid, where they lived with Kaka, to Sao Paulo. The couple has an apartment in Sao Paulo, and Carol, who was born and raised in the city, wanted to have the support of the family for Isabella. The singer plans to stay with her children in Sao Paulo until August.
Q. Women are usually very sensitive during pregnancy. How do you overcome the distance with Kaka?
It is true, we always get even more sensitive during pregnancy. But the final preparations are so intense … I found it great to come to Sao Paulo and taking care of everything, while Kaka is dedicated to games. But I feel sorry for Luca. My husband and him really miss each other: they love to run, play, fight, mess up, those games of man, you know? Luca tries to do with me, but it does not, right? (She said, stroking the belly)
Q. How relationships are going with the distance?
We talk a lot by phone and exchanged several messages via SMS. I’m still not sure he will be released to see the birth, but in June, the first day of vacation, he’ll be at my side.
Q. But you will not miss him at the time of birth?
Yes, but the last two weeks of pregnancy and the first month of the child are very intense. It is a relationship between mother and the baby too, there is no place for anyone else. At this stage, there’s no heed to her husband. At this moment, the same thing always happens: the baby cries, then the husband goes to work, tired the next day … So it’s good. Kaka will arrive in Sao Paulo when the baby will be more calm.
Q. Luca is not jealous?
My son has a very loving personality. Now, he kisses my belly, hugs, says he’ll teach her the music of Barney, with Mickey, Minnie. These days, we went to a store and he wanted to buy a baby duck bath like the one he has, he loves it. We chose it in pink. So for now, Luca is fine. It may change after the birth of Isabella, he could be surprised with all the attention a newborn requires. This week, for example, Luca said he was tired of saying that her sister will be called Isabella. Everywhere we go, people ask for it (laughs). But jealousy is normal and we will solve this.
Q. Why did you choose the name Isabella?
It was a choice made by three. We were in doubt between Natalie, Isabella and Julia. We liked the “bella” (beautiful in english) because every girl wants to be a princess, beautiful. And the meaning of the name is “God’s promised”. Isabella was a surprise and we are confident that she will inaugurate a different time in our lives, like Luca did.
Q. The baby was not planned?
We wanted an another baby, but we never thought that it would come so fast. It took me over six months to get pregnant with Luca, but for Isabella, I get pregnant soon after that we decided to have a new kid. My periods are irregular. Earlier, Kaka and I realized that my form had changed: my hips widened, I began to see a darker line on the belly. So I did a pregnancy test, but it was negative. It took a month and a half to find my pregnancy.
Q. During your pregnancy, Did Kaka have to chase some desire for you?
I wanted to eat special food such as chocolate mousse with passion fruit, fish with white sauce. I like to cook and I even posted recipes on the blog. In Brazil, I salivate when I remembered the food of my school (Carol studied in an English school in the Gardens, full time). Before having Isabella, I want to go back and eat there (laughs).
Q. What is the most exciting moment of this pregnancy?
I cried when I knew it was a girl. Another boy would also be welcome, but I always planned to have a boy first then a girl.
Q. You should have received several pats …
(Laughs) No. .. My mother gave me the first earring, heart. We refill the cradle of Luca and buy white clothes.
Q. Do you (and Kakà) want a second brother to Isabella?
When the kids will be more grown older, independent, eat alone, we want a third child.
