Judy Ann Santos open to 4th child but considers practicality
Active celebrity mom Judy Ann Santos may be open to having a fourth child, but points out it may not be practical.
Santos currently has her hands full juggling time between her family with three kids and new projects. Discussing household matters, she and husband Ryan Agoncillo came to the conclusion that a fourth child would still be welcome in their home. However, the practicality factor of raising another child is keeping them from adding another family member, reports Push.
“Napapag-usapan pa lang pero hindi pa talaga namin pina-plano kasi parang okay na kami. Sakto kami sa tatlo. But for now, the realities kasi of raising a child at this day and age, medyo mahirap na siya as it is, parang hindi na siya practical,” said Santos.
(We’ve talked about it, but we haven’t really made any plans because we’re pretty much set as it is. We’re fine with three. But for now, the realities of raising a child in this day and age is difficult as it is. It doesn’t seem practical.)
While the adults consider a child’s future, Santos’ 8-year-old son Lucho made special requests for a little brother. “‘Mom can you please have another baby boy?’ Kasi nga feeling niya parang lahat na lang sila girls, wala siyang kalaro (laughs),” recalls the actress.
(Because he feels that since he has two sisters, he doesn’t have anyone to play with.)
“But you know if God will bless us with another one, I would want to have another boy kung ibi-bless niya kami. Para two boys two girls and Lucho has been so vocal in asking us.”
Santos also considered her age when talking about having another baby. At 40, the actress believes she may not recover quickly enough due to a slower metabolism. Nonetheless, the celebrity couple are still not closing doors, as stated in the report.
For now, Santos is hard at work on the upcoming TV series “Starla” and her new online cooking show “Judy Ann’s Kitchen.” Alfred Bayle /ra
