At home, Judy Ann Santos totally sheds her superstar status.
If you are following her on Instagram, you would see her doing the pamamalengke, pagluluto, and other duties as a wife to Ryan Agoncilo and mom to Yohan, Lucho, and Luna.
One of her latest posts showed them having fun in the rain.
Her caption read, "When it rains.. we get silly and happy. (basta wag bagyo!) and some grounding on the side."
She used "simple joys" as her hashtag, and one of her fans commented, "Memories that last a lifetime."
The kids must have enjoyed it because, on August 3, 2019, she put out a photo of her eight-year-old son and three-year-old daughter looking like they just played in the mud.
She wrote, "Pwede.. pwedeng model ng putik!
The netizens lauded the Kapamilya actress for letting her kids have outdoor playtime, which, according to studies, is "recognized as essential for any child's healthy development."
The website parenting-science.com enumerated some of its benefits:
- a reduced risk of myopia, or nearsightedness;
- greater exposure to bright light, which enhances health and mental performance;
- increased activity levels, and greater freedom to run, jump, and climb;
- opportunities for hands-on learning about physical forces and concepts;
- reduced stress levels, better moods, and improved concentration;
- more naturally-attuned sleep rhythms; and
- enhanced opportunities to learn social skills, overcome fears, and develop a lifelong connection with nature.
