It’s been quite some time since fans last saw Janella Salvador showcase her acting chops. And as much as she wants to go back to what she does best, fans might have to wait a little longer.
Janella, who sat down with Slater Young and Kryz Uy for an interview on the couple’s skypodcast channel, talked about motherhood and how it changed her since giving birth to her son Jude Trevor, among others.
In the said vlog, Janella also opened up why she chose to hide her pregnancy from the public.
“Well, many things. One, at my age, it was kind of scary. Of course, I had to think about so many things. Like how am I going to tell everyone? It’s not easy especially at my age ‘cause there’s a lot of harsh criticism,” Janella said.
“And not just that. I didn’t want the stress. I needed the peace and quiet to have a happy pregnancy. I just wanted to enjoy it as a family, keep it private muna. And we weren’t going to hide him forever, obviously. I don’t think anyone can do that,” she added.
“We just wanted to enjoy those little moments before, you know, the calm before the storm,” she continued.
In the same vlog, Janella also revealed why fans won’t be seeing her return to acting anytime soon.
“When I was in the UK, I was super excited to get back and work. But now that I’m here, I realized that it’s so hard pala to settle down. When you’re coming from a different country and you have a baby. I really need more time to settle down,” she shared.
She added: “’Cause when I work, because of COVID, tapings now are lock-in. So I have to leave him for three weeks straight and I can’t see him. So, I need to make sure that I leave him with someone I can trust. Someone who will really take care of him. So, it’s hard. It’s really hard just thinking about it.”
