Former actress Rich Asuncion and husband Benj Mudie have moved into their own home in Canberra, Australia.
The couple migrated to Australia in March 2020 days before the Philippines implemented a lockdown at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In their Instagram posts, the couple expressed both relief and pride that they now have their own place after months and months of hard toil to achieve it.
On Sunday, December 5, 2021, Rich wrote, "Finally, a house we can call our own [emoji]…a dream come true for the #mudsquad!
"Ben and I have never worked so hard( and fought so hard [emoji]) in our time together....but I have to give it to you Papa @benjmudie for being headstrong and focused on our goal.
"Like I said before, you are an excellent leader. [emoji] Looking forward to making wonderful memories here with my growing family. [emoji]"
On Tuesday, December 7, 2021, Benj uploaded on Instagram his picture with Rich and their daughter Bela Brie taken in front of their home.
He wrote in his caption, "The product of 18 months hard work and discipline [emoji] we worked so hard to get ourselves into a position to buy this house.
"Arriving in Aus with next to nothing. Working 6 days a week, second jobs and some wise investments. We did everything we could to make this happen.
"And it feels that much sweeter knowing how much work, especially stress, that went into it."
Towards the end of the post, Benj thanked their good friend Gina Priagola for opening her home to his family.
He wrote [as is], "A big thank you to my family who were willing to house us through the process [emoji]
"couldn’t have done it without you guys @ginapriagola . Time to finish the year strong and keep moving forward into the 2022 [emoji] #MudSquad #family"
Both Rich and Benj have been juggling work and family life at the same time they are continuing their studies.
In June 2020, Rich revealed in an Instagram post about her "casual job" as a waitress in a restaurant.
Rich and Benj tied the knot on May 28, 2018, in Hong Kong. They got engaged in April 2017. Their daughter Bela Brie is turning three in December 2021.
