14 Jul – Kylie Padilla recently admitted that she is struggling to recover from her second childbirth, compared to when she gave birth to her first son Alas Joaquin.

As reported on GMA news, the actress posted a photo of her post-partum body on social media, and wrote, "So I was feeling out my body, the recovery from giving birth [is harder] this time around. I could not get out of bed on certain days, headaches, shivers and fatigue. So I postponed doing any exercise that would further prolong my recovery."

However, Padilla admitted that she is learning to take things slowly.

"Learning to love how my body has changed, how strong it has remained and how it is slowly healing. I'm happy, albeit the days where I feel like I am not entirely myself. I have grown to respect that it will take time because everything good takes time," she added.

Back in June, Padilla told "24 Oras" that she experienced prenatal depression while pregnant with second son Axl Romeo, who was born in December last year. Padilla tied the knot with actor Aljur Abrenica in 2018 and welcomed their first son in the same year.
