Dahil sa COVID-19 pandemic, hindi maiwasan ni Andrea del Rosario na magkaroon ng takot para sa kinabukasan ng kanyang anak na si Beatrice Anne or Bea.
Sa ekslusibong panayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) kay Andrea via Facebook Messaging noong December 14, 2020, nabanggit ng aktres na mas mahirap daw sa isang single parent na tulad niya ang sitwasyon ngayon dahil kailangan ay doble ang tapang mo.
Aniya, “As a mother, my fear was getting sick myself because I had a few symptoms during those times.
“We came from Thailand because Anthony played polo sa Thailand, and I got sick there."
Si Anthony Garcia, na boyfriend ng aktres, ay kilalang polo player sa Asia.
Pagpapatuloy ng VIVA star, “Nagka-anxiety attack ako during those times. Anyway, fast forward, after a test, I didn’t get it.”

Noong magkaroon ng lockdown last March, nataon na nasa bahay nila sa Calatagan, Batangas si Andrea at ang kanyang nine-year-old daughter.
Hindi naman masyadong nahirapan si Andrea na i-explain kay Bea ang mga biglaang pagbabago sa mundo dahil sa COVID-19.
Ayon sa 43-year-old star, “Regarding the pandemic, the school was really good at making them understand what was going on and us as well, we explained to her thoroughly what was going on.
“Nakapag-adjust naman si Bea kaagad, because we are fortunate naman to have gadgets and Internet connection during those times."
Na-enjoy ni Andrea ang buhay-probinsiya sa Calatagan, kung saan nanilbihan siya dati bilang vice-mayor.
Aniya, “Super blessed kami sa set-up namin sa province because in Calatagan, we have a chicken farm, also a beach house, and we could also go to a polo field. Kaya nakakalabas din kami paminsan-minsan to do other things.”
Isa sa bonding moments ng mag-inang Andrea at Bea ay ang painting.
“I took up Bachelor of Fine Arts in Advertising sa St. Scholastica’s College. But I didn’t use it. Nag-artista kasi ako.
“So this pandemic, I picked it up again and studied painting naman with a painting teacher.
“The hobby helped me and Bea to bond. It was a very good outlet for both of us kasi hindi lang siya naging hobby for me, but a bonding moment for us. It’s our mother-daughter thing.”
Malaking tulong din daw na kasama nila during lockdown sa Batangas si Anthony.
“We were lucky because Anthony was with us when it happened. He has a six-month contract in America, but the other six months here in the Philippines. When the pandemic happened, he was with us and that was a good thing.”
Kasama sa plano ni Andrea ang mag-migrate sa U.S.
Aniya, "Hopefully, work on moving to America. Half of the time here and half there."
