On September 3rd, Spanish-language channel Utilisima launched the new original series, “Mi Bebé.” The show which seeks to offer helpful advice to expectant parents is hosted by actress, Lisset Gutierrez, along with doctors and specialists. SpanglishBaby had a chance to interview Lisset (who is herself a mother!), to find out more. Check it out!
SB: So, you’ve been taping your new show, “Mi Bebé.” Are you having fun? Tell us a little about what it’s like on set.
LG: Indeed, I have been recording my new series ‘Mi Bebé’, which has been a lot of fun and above all very informative. The truth is that it’s wonderful to be able to share personal experiences and take-in all the information that our specialists provide in each episode.
SB: You yourself are a mother – what has been most challenging for you as a parent?
LG: The hardest thing about being a mother is thinking all the time and asking myself if I’m going in the right path, if I’ll be the best mother to Maria.
SB: SpanglishBaby.com is a community for parents raising bilingual children – is this something you’re attempting with your own child?
LG: I love that there are so many ways of teaching our children English at such an early age. My daughter goes to a British school because I want her to learn English while she learns Spanish.
SB: What do you hope to accomplish with your show, “Mi Bebé?” What do you want viewers to get out of watching it?
LG: I hope that ‘Mi Bebé’ becomes a program guide for all women, mothers and families. I think we can always use a show such as this one because no one is born knowing everything so it’s great to have an option with this program to solve problems, answer questions and have an answer for every situation as moms.
