YES! (Philippines) - - Celebrity Birthday -

Twenty days af­ter Kaye Abad and Paul Jake Castillo an­nounced at a party that they were go­ing to have a baby boy, the cou­ple hosted a baby shower, also or­ga­nized by the Aprica brand of baby strollers.

Just like the gen­der-re­veal party, the baby shower was held in Cebu City, where the ac­tress has been based since she set­tled down with her Ce­buano hus­band a year ago.

“As you know, I only have a few friends and fam­ily ni Paul Jake here, so thank you to ev­ery­one,” Kaye told the guests dur­ing the baby shower pro­gram.

Nod­ding, Paul Jake added: “As she said, she only has a few friends, so thank you so much for com­ing. Thank you for spend­ing your Sun­day af­ter­noon with us on this spe­cial day.”

Kaye later told re­porters that a month be­fore her date with the stork, sched­uled to take place in late De­cem­ber, she would fly to Manila to await the ar­rival of their first child. The mom-to-be also ad­mit­ted to hav­ing mixed feel­ings about ex­pe­ri­enc­ing child­birth for the first time.

“Ex­cited ako, at the same time natatakot ako,” she said. “Dati, nanonood ako ng mga nan­gan­ganak. Pero no’ng bun­tis ako, ’tinigil ko, kasi natatakot ako. You will never know what can hap­pen. But I al­ways pray na nor­mal and no com­pli­ca­tions. Sana okey la­hat.” Paul Jake, who ap­par­ently en­joys teas­ing his wife, in­ter­jected: “Sa di­nami-dami nang nabun­tis, ki­naya. Ikaw, di mo kaya? Magce­sarean ka kung di mo kakayanin.” Kaye, also in a ban­ter­ing mood, re­lated that Paul Jake had al­ready de­cided not to join her in the de­liv­ery room to cut their forth­com­ing baby’s um­bil­i­cal cord, as some hus­bands do for their wives. In­stead, he would just wait in the re­cov­ery room. “Sana nag­dok­tor ako kung gusto ko i-cut ’yan,” he pointed out, chuck­ling.

baby shower marco polo plaza, cebu cITy oc­To­ber 29, 2017 Paul Jake and Kaye, clearly a lovely and in-love cou­ple, watched the baby shower pro­gram from the side­lines. The two first met on the set of the day­time soap Alyna, which aired on ABS-CBN from Septem­ber 2010 to Fe­bru­ary 2011. They be­came in­stant friends, and would later hang out with their other friends and some fam­ily mem­bers.

But as far as Kaye can re­mem­ber, there was ini­tially no sex­ual at­trac­tion be­tween them. She even tried to hook him up with her girl friends, who in the end would tell her: “Alam mo, bagay kay­ong dalawa. Parang mas magka­sundo kayo.”

In early 2014, the ac­tor-en­tre­pre­neur went to Europe for a per­fume-mak­ing sem­i­nar. He con­tin­ued to com­mu­ni­cate with her, ev­ery day, through the phone app Face­Time. She then thought to her­self: “Bakit parang nami-miss ko siya? Hindi na­man gan­ito. Baka nasanay lang ako na lagi kam­ing magkausap.”

When Paul Jake came home, Kaye knew things be­tween them would never be the same again. They went from friends to boyfriend­girl­friend on April 14, 2014.

The cou­ple showed both their child­like and com­pet­i­tive sides when they played a few rounds of the kid­die game Jak en Poy, which is also called Bato, Bato, Pik. When­ever Paul Jake scored against his wife, Kaye would teas­ingly slap her hus­band—to the amuse­ment of the peo­ple watch­ing them at the event venue.

When YES! took a video of the cou­ple’s game and posted it on Face­book and In­sta­gram, our fol­low­ers were sim­i­larly en­ter­tained. At this writ­ing, that video has been viewed over 472,000 times on our Face­book page and nearly 70,000 times on our In­sta­gram ac­count.

On her In­sta­gram ac­count, Kaye de­scribed the gen­der-re­veal party held in Cebu City as a “fun af­ter­noon with fam­ily and friends.”

Those fam­ily mem­bers and friends in­cluded Paul Jake’s broth­ers Myti and Paulo and sis­ters Erica and Chin-Chin; the sib­lings’ cousin Billy Boy Wong; Paul Jake’s best buddy Tonyson Lee; Myti’s wife Aisha; Chin-Chin’s boyfriend Mi­kee Tan; and Dar­leen Hop­kirk, the girl­friend of Paul Jake’s younger brother Paulo.

Kaye’s own set of fam­ily and friends are based in Cavite, her home­town, and Manila, her place of work as an ac­tress. They were all un­able to at­tend the event in Cebu.
