Judy Ann Santos shares details of her surprise honeymoon with Ryan Agoncillo


031811-juday_main.jpgAfter giving birth to son Lucho last October 2010, Judy Ann Santos faced the media for the very first time this year as she was launched as Lactum 6+’s newest endorser. The 32 year-old stars in the milk brand’s newest commercial along with her six-year-old adopted daughter Yohan. During the event, Juday could not contain her surprise at the press turnout. “Nakakataba ng puso na napakaraming dumating. Ngayon lang ako nakakita ng ganito karaming camera. Ilan na ba ngayon ang channel sa Pilipinas? (laughs) Alam ko tatlo lang, ‘di ba? Sobrang thankful ako na nakakataba ng puso na halos lahat ng press nandito ngayon. It’s really nice to see familiar faces again. Thank you for really welcoming me again,” she said.

Judai, who is set to host ABS-CBN’s summer reality show Junior Master Chef, gamely answered questions and shared that Ryan recently surprised her with an impromptu trip to Shanghai as a sort of post-Valentine’s celebration. “Nung gabi, sabi niya maglu-lunch daw kami ng maaga. Tapos yun nga, gumising siya ng maaga. Tapos nagbihis na ako, dinala niya ako sa Resorts World tapos may pinakuha siya sa aking envelope sa bag. Nakita ko yung passport naming dalawa tapos yung itinerary namin sa Shanghai at yung e-ticket” she recalled.

The drama actress was caught totally off-guard that she was not even dressed properly for the trip. “Hindi ako prepared. Naka-leggings lang ako. Buti na lang hindi ako nag-shorts kasi akala ko magsi-sine lang kami. Kaya pala nung umaga na nasa bahay sinabi ni Ry sa akin na, ‘Sweetheart, I think you have to wear closed shoes.’ So yun sinuot ko. Ang nabitbit ko lang na gamit ay sarili ko lang at lip balm,” she added.

The couple, who will be celebrating their second wedding anniversary this coming April 28, finally got to celebrate a honeymoon of sorts after being so busy this past couple of months. “Actually wala pa naman kaming honeymoon talaga. Kasi nung mag-ha-honeymoon pa lang kami nung after ng first anniversary namin, nabuntis na ako agad (laughs). Dun ko talaga sobrang na-enjoy yung moments naming mag-asawa. Kasi after giving birth, kailangan magkaroon talaga ng hindi naman second honeymoon pero parang alone time niyong dalawa kasi for so many months, puyat ka tapos wala ka ng time for yourself, nag-aalaga ka ng ibang tao. Tapos nung time naming nun sa Shanghai, sobra talaga niya akong pinamper. Sabi ko, ‘Puwede bang every year ganito?’” she admitted.

The couple spent four days and three nights in a five-star hotel which made their trip a really memorable escapade. “Sobrang yun na yung pinaka-sweet na nangyari sa akin. Tapos yung pagdating namin dun, may libreng shopping pa. Ang bongga. Para kaming mga bata ulit. Kasi after naming makasal, even before kami makasal, matagal na yung last alis namin na kaming dalawa lang eh. Normally ang alis naming para sa trabaho, marami kaming kasama. Ngayon lang talaga yung na-enjoy namin yung being together for four days at nagagawa lang namin yung gusto namin. Lakwatsa tapos nagclu-clubbing lang kami, parang bagets na dalaga at binata, bakit hindi ‘di ba?” she said.

During their stay in Shanghai, Ryan’s parents stepped in to take care of the couple’s two children, Yohan and Lucho. Judai had no idea that almost everyone was in on her husband’s surprise, including their six-year-old daughter. “Si Yohan naman, alam na pala niya all this time na aalis kami. Kaya pala nung aalis na kami, nung naligo na ako, sabi niya, ‘Mommy, you know what, me and Lucho are going to miss you.’ Sabi ko pa
