All about Baby Chuck

Baby shower, it’s a girl thing. But when men get invited to one, would they dare decline? Reply and explain why.

I may have said no to a few baby shower invitations because I don’t want to be in an awkward situation. When mother talk starts, baby stories are shared, what can I contribute? I cannot relate.

But if I do give an invitation a nod, it’s either I resort to giving a comedic twist to a story or be quiet and listen to the amazing stories of the women.

Perhaps just like on her wedding day, the woman exudes a certain aura when expecting a child. The joy is infectious and extends to the people around her, most especially her closest friends.

BFFs. Pia Lu & Joanna Alpapara throws a baby shower party for Che Uy


Such was the case with the BFFs of Che, Joanna and Pia. They’re as excited as their friend.

Who wouldn’t be? It’s certainly a joyous time for the Che, the family and everyone knowing that the coming member of the family is a boy, the first male child of the couple and the first to carry the Uy surname of his generation.

Lovely women. Che with her mom.


Chuck is the name, and achi, the eldest in the family, gave his baby brother the nickname after a lead character of her favorite TV show. Coincidentally, character Chuck’s real name is also the chosen name of Che for his son.

Ok, I have to admit the party was fun. The naughty maternity games did the trick. The Pinning the Donkey took a new form with “fertilize the ovum”. The sperm pinned nearest the egg wins.

Guess Che’s baby bump size. The closest guess wins.


The party was quite intimate with about a dozen of Che, Joanna and Pia’s friends in attendance. And guess what? There were two other male guests in the party. I was not alone.
