On Kris TV’s episode today, guest Judy Ann Santos shared the reason why she adopted her first child Yohan even before marrying her husband Ryan Agoncillo.
“It was really my decision, I really prayed for that to happen,” she said. Host Kris Aquino then asked if it’s a joint adoption and she said, “No, ako lang.”
“Me first. I really wanted to have a child at 26, it was a prayer na talagang every single day yan talaga gusto ko. Dumating na sa point na, o sige kung ano man, magpapa In Vitro ako or artificial ano,” she shared.
Kris commented and said, “Pero if you think of it now, 26 ang bata.”
“Oo, siguro dala rin ng kabataan meron ka lang ganung, hindi naman rebellious stage ano but you just have this independence in you na gusto mong pangatawanan na kaya mong bumuhay ng bata. Feeling mo, I felt at the time na I was very matured already na kaya ko nang magkaroon ng sariling baby. Ganun ako ka strong willed dati yung kaya ko, ‘di ko kailangan ng asawa, dati nga wala akong plano mag-asawa, baby lang and then Ryan came,” she said.
She then explained the process of Yohan’s adoption, which took more time when she married Ryan. Juday was able to legally adopt Yohan at two years old and she has been an Agoncillo last year.
Now that she’s pregnant with another child, she shared that Yohan and Lucho were very happy when they heard about the good news. Juday also said she believes baby number 3 was ‘made in New Zealand.’
The actress also revealed she had difficulty conceiving that’s why she’s now careful about her pregnancy.
“Mas careful lang ako ngayon kasi nga feeling ko kasi mas matanda baka mas marami nang pwedeng hindi gawin, ‘di na pwedeng kainin. Mas praning ako basically,” she disclosed.
“Ang dami kong deadline hindi ko magawa kasi tamad na tamad akong kumilos, tamad akong mag-isip, tamad akong mag sulat naiinis ako, hindi ako galit pero upset ako. Talagang tamad ako talaga e hindi naman ako normally tamad,” the Teleserye Queen added.
