Juliana Gomez, 5, precocious first child of Richard Gomez and Lucy Torres, easily adapts to the different worlds she finds herself in.
When she’s alone with her mom, she turns into a live Barbie doll, creating for herself a world of beauty and fashion. She puts on her mom’s makeup and lipstick, wears her mom’s clothes and stilettos, stages fashion shows and beauty pageants.
Out on her own, she plays house. When she tires of that, she brings out her bronze wig and her violin and comes up with a diva rock star act.
“That’s her thing ngayon, rock,” laughs Lucy.
“Pambihirang bata ’yan,” adds Richard. “Makikita mo na lang, nagkikikisay diyan. ’Yon pala, nagra-rock daw siya. Pucha, minsan ’tinataas pa ang paa.”
The proud papa can’t help but brag: “Lahat ng entrance exams na kunuha niya sa mga schools, naipasa niya. Talino!”
Juliana is currently a prep student.
