Judy Ann Santos reveals why Baby Luna can't appear on TV commercial yet

Judy Ann Santos on youngest daughter Luna: "The whole day, nakangiti lang 'yan. Paggising niya, ngingiti na agad 'yan. Nakakalambot ng puso, alam mo yun? Yung sobra akong emotional kay Luna."


Giving birth to Lucho in 2010 was such a breeze for Judy Ann Santos.

Her experience was quite the opposite with Baby Luna.

She recounted, “Sobrang iba kasi yung pregnancy ko with Luna and yung pag-anak ko sa kanya.

“Yung kay Lucho, talagang lumaki yung tiyan ko, although lumaki din naman [kay Luna], pero nung inire ko siya [Lucho], iyon na yun!

“Parang, ‘Ganun pala kabilis manganak!’

“Itong kay Luna, grabe yung hirap ko talaga!"

She gave birth to her daughter on January 8, 2016, by CS or Caesarean section.

“Hindi dahil sa nahirapan akong ilabas siya, yung after na.

“Hindi ko kasi in-expect na ganun pala yung CS.

“Yung pain hindi ko in-expect, hindi ako ready.

“With Lucho kasi, I was ready for anything and nung nag-normal [delivery] siya, akala ko hanggang dun yung pain na kaya ko.

“Nung kay Luna na, hindi ko na-expect na yung nasa kama ka lang, hindi ka makatayo, dun ka pupunasan.

“Naka-catheter ka.

"Kumbaga lahat ng ayoko, nangyari sa akin,” she related, laughing.

(Catheter, according to Healthline.com, is a flexible tube that is used to drain the bladder and collect urine.)

Juday resumed, “Ayokong mag-catheter, ayoko ng pinupunasan ako sa kama e wala akong choice!

“Kailangan kong tiisin yung pain 'tapos kailangan mong itayo yung tahi mo para, may sinasabi sila na para mag-rearrange yung positioning ng internal organs mo.”

Did she plan the Caesarean birth?

“Hindi, pero alam mo, meron akong feeling na baka ma-CS ako.

“Wala lang, may feeling lang ako.

“Kaya palagi siyang kasama sa dasal ko, same naman with Lucho noon, dinadasal ko talaga na, ‘Sana huwag po akong ma-CS!’

“Pero wala akong feeling na masi-CS ako, buo ang loob ko na normal ako kay Lucho.

“Nung kay Luna, patagal nang patagal, lumalaki yung doubts ko na, ‘Naku mukhang masi-CS ako!’

“Kasi nga sinasabi ng doctor ko na malaki yung ulo ni Luna."

ALL WORTH IT. But now that Luna is almost six months old, seeing her smile has been one of her day's major highlights.

Luna is their third child. The eldest is Yohan, then next is Lucho, the only boy.

She said about her baby girl, “Ibang-iba, ibang-iba!

“Kasi kay Lucho, tahimik lang si Lucho, tulog nang tulog, gigising lang yun para mag-feed.

“Iba talaga ang demands ng baby girl. Mas demanding. Mas maingay umiyak, mas demanding.

“Pero iyon lang yung iyak ni Luna, hindi siya iiyak pag hindi siya gutom 'tsaka pag hindi puno yung nappy [diaper] niya.

“Pero iyon na yun at saka pag hindi lang niya makuha yung tulog niya.

“Pero other than that, the whole day, nakangiti lang 'yan. Paggising niya, ngingiti na agad 'yan.

“Nakakalambot ng puso, alam mo yun? Yung sobra akong emotional kay Luna.”

ENDORSEMENT OFFERS FOR LUNA? Yohan and Lucho had experienced doing TV commercials.

For Luna's part, the offeres came when she was barely two months old.

Juday revealed, “E, hindi ko pa siya kayang i-expose sa lights nang ganung kabata.

“Si Lucho kasi, mga five to six months na.

“Para sa amin kasi, iyon yung safest. At least kumpleto na ng bakuna, medyo strong na yung immune system niya.

“Hindi dahil kami nagpapakaarte or nagpapahabol 'no, it’s not that.

"It’s just that, masyado pang bata.

“Darating naman yun, hindi ba?

“Pero parang mas importante lang naman sa akin yung health ng baby namin kesa ilabas siya sa isang produkto."

Is it safe to say she will appear on a TV commercial this year?

“Siguro, siguro, pagka may napusuan,” said the lead actress of Kusina, her entry to the Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival this coming August.
