Why Anne Curtis decided to give birth to daughter Dahlia in Australia
While their return date is TBD, the actress says the goal is to spend the holidays in Manila

Anne Curtis shared recently she was supposed to give birth to daughter Dahlia in Manila and not in Australia.

In an interview with G3 San Diego on Tuesday, September 16, Anne said that plans in Manila had already been laid out when she decided to give birth in Australia instead.

“Actually it was really a last minute decision really. I already had chosen a doctor and also a hospital. But parang last minute, I decided na parang I was working so hard kasi. And parang hindi nila ako mapigilan mag-work,” she said.  (I was working really hard. And nobody could seem to stop me from working.)

“So parang I felt one way that would really get me to stop working is to just kind of be here. And a major factor din kasi was being with my mom, lalo na it’s my first baby and having her help me through it, parang iyon yung naging doon na lang ako,” she said.

(And a major factor also was being with my mom since it’s my first time to have a baby, and having her help me through it, so I decided to stay here.)

Anne and husband Erwan Heussaff welcomed Dahlia last March. Asked to describe the first few days as parents, Anne said Erwan was a natural with their daughter.

“Seeing how he is with Dahlia has made me love him even more. I know it sounds cheesy but wala eh, that’s how really it is. And I’m so thankful to have Erwan like helping me and my mom helping me through this, kasi it’s not really an easy job. It’s not even a job, it’s a different kind of role,” she said.

Anne said they still don’t have a final return date, but that they’re eyeing to spend the holidays in Manila.

“Hopefully by the end of this year, we will be able to come back to Manila na. [We’re] playing it by ear pa rin but we will see. Ayon naman talaga ang goal, makapag-pasko kami dyan sana.” (That’s actually the goal, to spend Christmas there hopefully.) –
