Gladys happy for new mom Juday
By Dolly Anne Carvajal
MANILA, Philippines—Gladys Reyes is overjoyed that her good friend Judy Ann Santos is now a new mom.
“Kinakarir talaga ni Juday ang pag breast-feed,” she says. “Ayaw humiwalay sa kaniya ni baby Lucho. Juday told me ayaw niya kumuha ng yaya for the first months para manamnam niya talaga kung paano maging isang mommy.”
Doesn’t she feel bad that she’s not one of the godparents of Lucho? “Ryan and Juday know that my family and I will always be around for them and their kids. It’s just that our religious beliefs in Iglesia ni Cristo doesn’t allow us to be baptismal sponsors. In all the ways that matter, I will be a ninang-ninangan to Lucho.”
How does she and Juday feel that “Mara Clara,” their telenovela many teardrops ago, will soon be revived? “We are delighted that buhay pa din ang alaala ng show that started it all for us. We turned it over to the young stars who will portray Mara and Clara. Sa pag-project pa lang nila sa pictorial, it’s obvious that they have potential.”
Who knows? Years from now, Juday’s Lucho and Glady’s daughter may end up together. That would be the best ending of their classic tale as one of TV’s most loved tandems.
