As she wrapped up her first glam shoot nearly three years after becoming a wife and a mother, comedienne Rufa Mae Quinto couldn’t help but feel a sense of pride: “Nagka-pictorial ako na I felt beautiful and sexy again.”
Comedienne Rufa Mae Quinto had to wait for nearly three years before getting into a place where she now feels comfortable and confident enough in herself anew.
As she wrapped up her first glam shoot since becoming a mother to her unica hija Athena last Sunday, the ‘Home Sweetie Home’ star couldn’t help but feel a sense of pride for having found herself “beautiful and sexy again” during the making of this special project.
“Iniisip ko lagi anak namin [na] alagaan. Bago ako, asawa at anak ko muna,” she said. “Madami [ang] nagsabi, ‘mag-ayos ka like before’, ‘losyang mode’, etc. Seriously, I can’t do it. My family is my priority. Bago ako, my husband [Trevor Magallanes] and daughter [Athena come] first.”

Rufa, who was able to get back to her pre-pregnancy body a year after giving birth to Athena, also emphasized the importance of always putting one’s trust in the process.
“May process ang lahat… love, kindness, sipag, pasensiya, tiyaga lang para may nilaga,” she said. “Yes! I always say, ‘Lahat naman ng sacrifice ko, may kapalit na maganda for sure!”
With this, the celebrity mom extended her gratitude to those who have never lost their faith in her – from her close friends in showbiz to her very supportive fans.
“Thanks to my management [Asian Artists Agency], [Jonathan Valdez], ama Boy Abunda my love and managers. Salamat sa lahat ng pag-tiwala and pag-abang sa balik alindog program 101 ko,” she said. “Pwede na ako [rumampa], kembot at posing para sa trabaho. Todo work na para kay baby at sa bayan. Thanks really, really mga friends for all the support. Yes, kayo lahat na mga beshie in social media!”
