Judy Ann Santos is now playing the role of her life—a wife to TV host Ryan Agoncillo, and a mother to two kids, 6-year-old Yohan and 6-month-old Lucho.
"Parang pelikula lang," she tells Good Housekeeping in its August issue, sharing that just like the domesticated wife in the movies, she makes sure that her household runs smoothly.
"I prepare Ryan's baon, lalo na when he's on a diet. The same goes with Yohan. I spend time with her and with Lucho. I bring Yohan to her football game. So parang pelikula lang, parang soccer mom," she says.
While this domesticated life may not be what most fans expected her to have, Juday admits that this is exactly the life she wanted.
"When I finished all the things I wanted to do, sabi ko, okay na ko. Magiging housewife na ko," the 32-year-old actress admits.
As she was very hands-on in making career choices as an actress, she carries that same discipline in managing her household. It's a good thing that she has her husband Ryan's support.
As the couple believes in balance and making sure that both their kids get the attention that they need. "Yung ginagawa namin partnership. Kapag may isa sa amin ang na kay Lucho, may isa kay Yohan. So nung nanganak ako, palaging nag-de-date si Yohan at Ryan." Juday relates.
Juday also talks about disciplining her kids, staying relaxed despite her busy schedule, and handling her household help—or "her angels", as she likes to call them.
