When it comes to her son Jude, one thing's for sure: Janella Salvador will never back down.
A few months back, Baby Jude became a subject of bashing by some netizens who made fun of his looks. As Janella looked back at that moment during her "Magandang Buhay" guesting, she said her initial reaction was, "Ano ba 'to, joke ba 'to? Like, why would you joke about it?"

The "Click, Like, Share" actress went on to say that she can't accept the bashing her son got.
"Eventually na-realize ko, it's not right. Kailangan kung sino man 'to, matutunan niya 'yung lesson niya," she said. "Ako naman sanay na ako sa pangba-bash. If it's directed at me, sige, okay lang, dededmahin ko. Pero 'wag naman sa anak ko na walang kamalay-malay."
"Kasi if he can't fight for himself, I'm gonna fight for him. Hindi lang ako tatahimik 'pag ganoon. There are some times where you really have to stand your ground," she stressed.
Janella also talked about how focused Markus Paterson has been in helping her take care of Jude.
"He's very hands-on. Never ko na-feel sa kanya na parang ayaw niya 'yung nangyari. Hindi siya naging distant ever kay Jude. From the start, he was there, ready to help and ready to learn so many new things as a dad. Talagang eager siya to learn how to become a good dad," she said of the actor.
The 22-year-old mom then shared a sweet message for her son, who is turning one in three months.
"I just want you to know that I will always be proud to be your mama. No matter what the world says, no matter what people say, 'wag kang makinig sa kanila. You made my life even better. You completed my life. Walang nawala sa akin. I gained you," she enthused.
