In an interview with Anthony Taberna on Tapatan ni Tunying, Jodi Sta. Maria talked about her relationships with son Thirdy, ex-husband Pampi Lacson and present boyfriend, Jolo Revilla.
Jodi, who was previously married to Pampi, is now a single parent to their son, Thirdy. She said that even though she wants to spend most of her time with him, her workload would not allow her to. She said that she used to bring Thirdy to work so he will understand the nature of his mother’s job.
Jodi also said that Pampi can regularly visit their son. “Ang custody namin kay Thirdy, we share eh. May times na si Thirdy, nasa kanyang daddy and may times naman na nasa akin. And, in all fairness naman din kay Pampi na hindi naman din siya nagkukulang kay Thirdy bilang isang ama.”
As a mother, Jodi said that she disciplines her son for a reason. When asked if Thirdy will enter show business, Jodi said that her son does not want to join the biz and would only go for commercials as he does not want to stay up late. Currently, Thirdy is in Grade 4 and Jodi said he is a consistent honor student in his class.
The Be Careful With My Heart star is in a relationship with politician-actor Jolo Revilla for three years and said that she and Jolo are going strong and that challenges are always part of a relationship. When asked if she will marry Jolo, she only replied, “Kung siya na po yung itinakda para sa akin.” Further, she said that she is praying for it if God destines him for her. She said that she is also not in a hurry to remarry coming from a previous marriage that did not work, “Mas maingat rin po ako ngayon.”
Tunying asked how is the relationship of Thirdy and Jolo to which Jodi replied, “Maayos naman po yung relationship nila but of course, hindi kailanman ma-te-take away ni Jolo yung place ni Pampi sa life ni Thirdy.”
