On April 21, seasoned actress Sylvia Sanchez revealed that her son Arjo Atayde and his girlfriend Maine Mendoza weren’t ready to have kids yet.
In an interview with Sanchez, she explained that Mendoza and Atayde are currently focusing on their careers.
“Ay hindi pa, pareho pang may pangarap ‘yung dalawa eh. Tsaka hindi ko pinapakailaman, hindi ko talaga sila pinakikialaman, bahala sila kung kailan nila ako bigyan ng apo.”
However, she expressed her wishes to have a grandchild in two to three years.
“Basta wag lang ‘yung ano–sana two years or three years from now. Alam mo ‘yun.
“Hindi ‘yung uugod-ugod ako, at tsaka gusto kong maalagaan ‘yung mga apo ko.”
She also shared her excitement over taking care of her future grandchild.
“Basta sabi ko sa kanila, pag nag-anak sila akin ang apo pag nag-shooting sila, pag nagtrabaho sila, iwan sa akin ang apo. Tapos bahala sila kung saan nila ako habulin, kung saang bahay nila ako habulin kasi itago ko ‘yung anak nila.”
Sanchez also indicated her plans of laying low from showbiz altogether to focus on her future grandchildren.
“Later on, magle-lay low ako kasi matanda na ako at tsaka pag nagkaanak na ang mga anak ko siyempre po-focus sa apo ko di ba?”
Mendoza and Atayde have been together for three years now, since December 2019.
As for Sanchez she stars in the digital series, Misis Piggy, alongside Ria Atayde, Iana Bernardez, Elijah Canlas, Ricky Davao, Rubi Rubi, and Fino Herrera.
