Picture! Picture!, GMA’s newly-launched game show, puts to the spotlight one of our favorite past times – taking pictures! Questions were derived from a photo flashed on the screen, each round leading to the five hundred thousand pesos cash prize.
Speaking of pictures, one picture-perfect family that we love so much is the Agoncillo family, comprised of Picture! Picture! host Ryan Agoncillo, award-winning actress Judy Ann Santos, and their two bundles of joy, Yohan and Lucho.
When asked how the family is doing, Ryan was quick to reply, “The family is well and good.”
Ryan mentioned that one of the reasons why he took GMA’s offer to host Picture! Picture! was because of the light work schedule, giving him ample time to be with his wife and kids. “At the end of this all, we choose family,” Ryan said. He also admitted that he discovered a new-found appreciation of his family, because of the recent calamities that made parents childless, and children parentless.
Ryan and Judy Ann have been together for almost nine years already, 5 of which they spent as husband and wife.
“I’m at a loss for words how I feel for my wife right now. Sarap! I feel like I won the lottery, in luck with the draw sa partner,” Ryan expressed.
After almost a decade of togetherness, Ryan said that their passion as a couple hasn’t dimmed a bit.
“The fire is raging. How do you keep it burning? It’s an effort, it’s a team effort. It’s not all rosy, I’m not gonna pretend it’s perfect but I’m happy that anumang kakulangan ko, nandyan ‘yung wife ko na magpuno. S’ya din, ready din akong punan ‘yung mga pagkukulang n’ya. Kaya nga maingat kami sa oras. ‘Tag team’ kami.”
Aside from their “division of labor,” Ryan also mentioned another secret to their successful marriage.
“’Yung date namin medyo creative na, ‘di na pwede yung pelikula-pelikula or dinner-dinner. Medyo pati ‘yung pagbibisekleta, halimbawa ‘yung pagsiswimming, date na din ‘yon.”
And another tip how he has been able to resist temptation:
“One look at my wife and it’s good. Makakita ako ng magandang babae sa daan, pag-uwi ko mas maganda ‘yung akin.”
Yohan, their daughter, and Lucho, their son, are now 9 and 3 years old respectively. Do the power couple have plans of adding another member to the family?
“Tingnan natin kung sa near future biyayaan tayo ulit ng isa pang baby. Si Lucho, tinatanong namin s’ya kung gusto n’yang maging kuya, sabi n’ya, oo. Pero 3 years old s’ya ‘di ko alam kung naiintindihan n’ya ‘yung konsepto. He says he wants a kid brother. (Si) Yohan, may konting tampo pa rin, konting pagseselos… but she better understand her situation as an ate now. Kami din we want to know ourselves more as a family.”
Ryan chronicles their moments as a family on his Instagram account, @thatsmytatayryan. He tags photos of his wife and kids with #goodvibes and #bestmemories which really are the apt words to describe the perfect snapshots of the Agoncillo family.
