Kristine Hermosa on how motherhood changed her: “‘Yung perspective mo sa buhay mag-iiba”

It is certainly not lost on Kristine Hermosa how motherhood has transformed her and made her appreciate all the work mothers put in for their children.

Now a mother of five children, the “Forevermore” actress candidly opened up about her family life with husband Oyo Sotto in an interview with Boy Abunda for his YouTube channel.

“To be honest, hindi naman siya madali,” she spoke of their role as parents. “Maraming challenges pero ‘pag alam mo kasi na 'yun ‘yung gusto mo, ‘pag mahal mo ang ginagawa mo, which I love being a mom and a wife, nagiging madali. Ganun talaga ‘pag nandoon ‘yung puso mo, ‘di ba?”

When asked which among her roles as daughter, wife, and mother Kristine prioritizes in life, she answered, “Kahit pilitin kong maging wife ako muna, hindi ko magagawa 'yun. Sa lima kong anak, poprotesta silang lahat. ‘Mama, mama, kami muna.’ So definitely a mother first.” 

She later affirmed that Oyo does not get jealous of the premium she places on being a mom.

“Hindi naman, Tito Boy, kasi alam naman namin ang pinasok namin na once magka-anak kami, eto talaga ‘yun, it’s a commitment. So ganun din naman sa pag-aasawa. We just find time na kunwari maluwag, edi alis kami, ganun,” she explained.

Kristine couldn’t hold back emotions as she voiced out her realizations as a mother. And now that she’s taken on this role to five kids, her appreciation for mothers has grown as well.

“Ngayon ko na-realize na ganun pala ang sakripisyo ng mga ina. So mas na-appreciate ko 'yung nanay ko, ‘yung nanay ni Oyo (Sotto), lahat ng nanay sa mundo. Grabe pala 'yung pinagdadaanan nila. So ito pala ‘yun. This is what it means. Very selfless, 'yung pagmamahal nila. Hindi bale nang mawalan sila ng oras for themselves, but to serve their children,” she said.

“‘Yung perspective mo sa buhay mag-iiba. ‘Yung fashion mo mag-iiba. ‘Yung oras ng paggising mo mag-iiba. ‘Yung katawan mo mag-iiba. Lahat,” she added.
Focused on raising her children, the “Pangako Sa ‘Yo” actress also said that making a comeback in her acting career would have to wait.

“Ngayong maliliit pa ang mga anak ko, masasabi kong hindi ko siya pwedeng hati-hati,” she explained. “I can do that kung pipiliin ko pero mas pinipili ko to stay with them, alalayan sila hanggang sa lumaki sila. Siguro kapag malalaki na sila, that’s the time na unti-unting babalik ulit. Ako din naman nami-miss ko din naman.”
