"Wala akong planong mag-asawa."
This was the candid revelation of actress Judy Ann Santos in the latest vlog of celebrity doctor Aivee Teo that was released over the weekend.
Explaining her statement, Judy Ann said that before meeting her husband Ryan Agoncillo, she had no intention of getting married after witnessing failed relationships in her family and friends.
“Kasi parang galing ako sa... My mother had a failed relationship with my dad. My sister had a failed relationship as well. And I had friends na medyo hindi maganda mga experience nila sa mga asawa nila. Kaya feeling ko hindi kailangan ng asawa," she said.
"[Ang sa akin], at 30, kung may partner eh ‘di magpakasall—kapag talagang worth it siyang pakasalan. Kung wala talaga okay lang din," she went on. "Tapos nagkataon lang na pareho naming gusto magpakasal ni Ry at 30. Kasi he proposed when I was 29."
According to Judy Ann, while she didn't see herself getting married, it had been her ardent wish to have a baby at 26.
“I prayed to have a baby at 26. It doesn’t matter on how," she shared.
“Lo and behold, Lord blessed me with Yohan at the age of twenty six," she added.
Judy Ann, 42, adopted Yohan when she was still single.
After their wedding in 2009, Ryan went on to legally adopt Yohan. Aside from their eldest child, the couple has two other children: Lucho and Luna.
