Following the grant of annulment to Jodi Sta. Maria and her ex-husband Pampi Lacson Jr., former actress Iwa Moto also has a reason to celebrate the milestone.

Moto is the current partner of Lacson, with whom she has two children, Hiromi and Caleb. The two of them have been in a relationship for 12 years already, following Sta. Maria’s split with Lacson in 2011.


Together, they have formed an unconventional blended family, with Sta. Maria and Lacson’s son, Thirdy, also being close to Moto since he was a kid.


Moto made known her positive reaction to Sta. Maria’s announcement on Instagram, which the netizens found delightful.

“Let’s celebrate [loving emoji]. Love you, Amor!” wrote Moto, calling Sta. Maria with a moniker that she got playing the role of the vengeful Amor Powers in the remake of the hit TV series “Pangako Sa’Yo.”

Sta. Maria replied to the comment of the “StarStruck” alumna, saying, “We should! Pagbalik niyo [red heart emoji].”

As of this writing, Moto’s comment received more than 800 likes, with some netizens commenting that they “love the friendship” between the two women.

Lacson and Sta. Maria, who tied the knot in 2005, obtained the annulment of their marriage 13 years after the petition was filed. The Kapamilya actress is now rumored to be dating actor Raymart Santiago.

On social media, they openly share their interaction as they co-parent their children, with the actresses often sharing sweet moments of their blended family as they celebrate milestones together.


In 2017, Sta. Maria and Moto surprised the netizens when they posted a picture of them going to the gym together, teasing the growing friendship between them. 

The following year, Sta. Maria officially shared that they are co-parenting and expressed her gratitude for the friendship she has built with Moto, labeling the latter as Thirdy’s “second mom.”

“Alam mo, siguro there’s no greater feeling na malaman mo na yung anak mo, minamahal siya. Natutuwa ako na parang… yun nga ang sinasabi namin kay Thirdy. Hindi man nag-work out ‘yung sa amin ng daddy niya, pero yung little family namin, ‘yung blended family namin, di ba parang mas dumami pa yung mga taong nagmamahal sa kanya?” she said at the time.
