Why Julia Barretto is moving close to mom’s home
MANILA, Philippines — Actress Julia Barretto is ready to move in to her own place which is only a few steps away from her family’s home.
Barretto shared the news over the weekend via an Instagram post: “I went to do a little shopping since I am already moving into my new home.”
The actress also explained the reason behind building her own place near her mom Marjorie Barretto’s house.
“Fun fact: I will only transfer a few steps away from my mom’s house. People often find it weird and usually ask me, ‘why?’ and I simply answer, “why not?’” Barretto wrote.
While Marjorie raised her to become “independent,” Barretto said her mother is her source of strength. She also mentioned the perks of still getting to eat at her mom’s home.
“My mom is my bestest friend and my number one source of strength. Even though, she has raised me to be independent and brave, I still don’t see any reason why I should be far away from her,” Barretto said.
“Sa totoo lang, kailangan ko pa rin siya. At least, I still get to have breakfast, lunch and dinner at her place. Makakatipid pa rin ako sa ulam at kanin. Sorry mom,” she added.
It was in 2017 when the construction of Barretto’s first house started. /jpv
