LOOK: Angelica Panganiban, Judy Ann Santos bond with baby Luna for playtime
Having veteran actresses Judy Ann Santos and Angelica Panganiban together for a project showed fans that the two are just unstoppable with their platonic chemistry, being each other’s funny confidants.
Santos and Panganiban starred in the movie “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes” by director Jun Robles Lana and was released in the big screen last January 2018. Since then, the two have gotten closer, thanks to the time they’ve spent working together. Back in February, Santos wrote a heartfelt post to Panganiban in her Instagram page, saying she would miss working with her after their time at “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes” had come to an end.
“At higit sa lahat… ikaw @iamangelicap ikaw na pinaka-masarap pakinggan ang tawa, ikaw na pinaka-maraming punchlines, ikaw na punong puno ng pagmamahal, ikaw na pinaka-transparent sa lahat, ikaw na pinaka-masipag, ikaw na pinaka-masarap ka-trabaho. Maraming salamat at nakilala kita uli, basta andito lang ako. Mamimiss kita peach, mahal kita,” Santos wrote then.
(And most of all, you @iamangelicap, you whose laughter is the most pleasing to hear; you who’s got the most punchlines; you who are filled with love; you who are the most transparent of all; you who’s most hardworking; you who’s the most pleasurable to work with; thank you so much that I’ve known you again. I’m just right here. I will miss you, peach, I love you.)
And while there aren’t any new projects yet involving the two again, it seems their friendship continues to blossom as they make time for each other to bond.
Last night, Santos shared on her Instagram Stories a clip of her youngest, two-year-old baby Luna, who was sitting on the floor and was holding what looked to be colored markers. In the background, Santos can be heard asking, “Who’s your visitor?” The camera then panned to Panganiban who was sitting right across Luna on the floor.
The two scream and laugh, with Santos saying, “May nakamiss.” (Someone missed someone.)
Santos then asked Luna what they were doing, with Panganiban quipping, “Painting!”
In another clip, the two are seen in hysterics as Santos egged Panganiban on: “Paandaran mo ko, naiintiidhan mo ba yung anak ko?” (Impress me, do you understand my daughter?)
Panganiban, in between laughter, replied, “Yes ate, pag nagka-anak ako ganito, ‘Mamshie mamshie, come here come here,’” before dissolving into another round of laughs. (Yes, sister, when I get to have my own child, it will be like this, “Mamshie mamashie, come here come here.”)
The three of them also had a game of flashcards, where Luna was made to guess the letter as well as the picture that was flashed before her. And when she got one answer right, Panganiban and Santos were overly-joyed and cheered her on, with Panganiban playfully lifting Luna up in the air before bringing her down to the floor and cuddling her.
We can’t blame Panganiban, of course, for who can resist the sweet and adorable little Luna and her bungisngis? It’s easy to be putty in her hands. JB
