Kylie Padilla just got emotional about the challenges of being a single parent.

In an FB post, the actress opened up about how much she misses her kids.

"Single motherhood is so hard!" Kylie wrote, featuring a photo of herself with her two boys, Alas and Axl.

"I don’t want to mince words anymore. I miss my kiddos. I’m trying to find so many ways to explain to them why Mama is always away and always tired. I wish I could just hold them forever and make them understand how much they ground me and how much they guide me and how much of what I do is for their future. Konting tiis na lang and you’ll have me the whole day, promise. I think I’m ready to mom again, I’ve been Dad for quite some time now, huhuhu."

It looks like Kylie was referring to how constantly busy she is with work ("Dad" mode) and how she would love to spend more time bonding with her boys (Mom mode).

Kylie and her estranged husband, actor Aljur Abrenica, have been co-parenting Alas and Axl ever since their controversial split in 2021. 

This isn't the first time that Kylie got real about the hardships that single moms like her go through. In August 2022, she spoke about the "mom guilt" she felt when she had to go back to work. 

"Nung una, feeling ko talaga hindi ko kaya. Feeling ko nagi-guilty ako. Parang, 'Bakit mas pinipiling magtrabaho kaysa mag-alaga ng anak?'"

Still, she feels fortunate that she can provide for her kids because of her career in showbiz.

"I see the bigger picture now,” she added. “So, 'yon siguro ang natutunan ko. As a working mom, it’s really a blessing to be able to work kasi not every mom can do that.”
