Natasha Faisal takes a look at her mobile phone’s photo album and exclaims: “It’s all Luna, all 40,000 of them.”
The 987FM DJ is clearly infatuated with her first baby, Luna Iqmal, who was born on June 11 last year, and embraces motherhood.
From waking up late to becoming a morning person, Natasha, 25, is amazed by how much she has changed.
“It’s embarrassing, but my mum can attest to how I needed her help getting up because, most times, the alarm was not reliable at all,” she tells The Straits Times.
“But since I became a mother, I actually enjoy preparing breakfast. The slightest movement or a little sneeze from my baby can jolt me awake and I start my day as early as 5am.”
She cannot wait to explore recipes and cooking for Luna, who recently started on solid food.
“I love being in the kitchen and meal preparation. I can only hope that she turns out a big foodie like her parents,” says Natasha who who is married to Iqmal Jumaat, 30, a business manager.
For now, she is reminding herself to go easy on taking videos and photos of Luna. “Like seriously, I don’t need 500 photos of her sleeping with her mouth open,” she says with a laugh.
“But on a more serious note, I’d love to overcome the unwillingness to ask for help and feel less mom-guilt. I hope to reclaim myself so that I can be the best version of me for my family.”
