“You know, we have maintained our individuality pa rin. Ang lakad namin, kanya-kanya pa rin. Kasi, kailangan kanya-kanya pa rin kayo ng diskarte sa buhay,” he told Yahoo! Philippines OMG and other members of the press in an interview.
The “Talentadong Pinoy” host said they try to maintain their individual selves in order to keep a bit of mystery in their marriage and to change things up once in a while.
For instance, Ryan gave this example: “Maganda yung at the end of the day, itetext ko siya kung nasaan siya. ‘O, magkikita ba tayo o magkikita tao sa bahay?’ Parang mas nakakakilig yun e. Hindi rin yung nagmamadali siya na, ‘Hay naku, uuwi na ako kasi aawayin na ako ng mister ko’.”
“Mas maganda yung nagpapaalamanan kayo sa isa’t isa.”
Ryan added that a bit of jealousy can be good since it can keep him and Juday on their toes.
“Maganda yung ipapakita mo na lalabas ka ng bahay, pogi ka, para gusto niyang sundan ka. Siya rin, lalabas siya ng maganda. E di ako, ‘Teka lang sweetheart, ipagmamaneho na lang kita’,” he explained.
The “Eat Bulaga” co-host further said, “We’re very clingy, we’re very affectionate with each other, pero hindi kami needy. We give each other a lot of space, definitely.”
Often a subject of rumors linking him to other woman, Ryan said he and Judy Ann are secure with each other and that they don’t mind such intrigues.
“Okay nang maintriga sa magandang babae, huwag lang sa magandang lalaki,” he quipped.
Are Ryan and Judy Ann ready to give their children Yohan and Lucho a younger sibling?
“Well, hindi naman sa pinipigilan namin. Kung meron, e di thank you. Kung wala, okay lang din dahil Lucho is about a year and a half pa lang now,” Ryan said.
He added that “the most proper time na sundan si Lucho si when he’s about two and a half or three years old.”
As for doing other TV shows for the Kapatid network, Ryan said the TV5 weekend talent show “Talentadong Pinoy” and the daily noontime show “Eat Bulaga” remain his main priorities.
And of course, any additional projects should be planned properly so he’ll still be able to fulfill his fatherly duties to Yohan and Lucho.
“Projects right now have to be planned properly. Kasi yung daily na ‘Eat Bulaga,’ hindi biro, e. Tapos may weekly na ‘Talentadong Pinoy,’ hindi rin biro,” the TV host and occasional actor explained. “Kung meron man procjets na kailangang i-plano, kailangan ko rin iplano sa school ni Lucho, sa school ni Yohan. Ayoko naman sana na nagtatrabaho nga ako, pero hindi ko naman nakikita yung mga anak ko.”
The Kapatid network has projects lined up for him, Ryan assured, but besides considering his children, he’s also careful in choosing the right show.
“Namimili lang na tama sa akin, tama sa edad ko, yung hindi naman ako aalog alog pa ginawa, saka may time pa rin sa family ko,” he said.
