Julia Barretto said she had made some kind of arrangement with mom Marjorie Barretto when she started building her own home.
The 20-year-old Kapamilya star remarked, laughing, “She’s just enjoying the moment that I’m still under her roof.
“But I always tell her that I’m still gonna be in her house every day to eat there.”
Julia’s property is located near their family home and, as early as now, the young actress says she will get homemaking tips simply from having her mom so close by.
“I live so close to her still, so I feel like the tips will come in every day.
“And I feel like I will also learn every day as I face those challenges when I actually live in that house already.”
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and two other reporters interviewed Julia after the media launch of Oppo F5 held at the City of Dreams last October 26.
It was on October 18, 2017, when Julia first gave a glimpse of the property where her house is now being built.
Her caption read in part: “TY, G for another answered prayer. This is still so surreal to me.”
It seems to be the perfect time for Julia to make such an investment.
Aside from her endorsements, she starred in two movies less than a year apart—the first one being Vince & Kath & James, shown at the 2016 Metro Manila Film Fest last December, followed by the movie I Love You To The Stars And Back, in August this year.
How long did it take her to finally decide to have a place of her own?
Julia answered, “Since I was 18, I was already planning of building a home.
“But maybe, at the time, I wasn’t really ready yet to do anything.
“But now that I am already 20, I think I’m more than ready.”
Julia added that she’s going to be hands on in designing her dream home.
“I’m so excited for the furniture, for the interior design and everything.
“But the thing I’m most excited about is my walk-in closet.”
