Veteran actress Jean Garcia shared that her daughter Jennica and son-in-law Alwyn Uytingco are planning to move and settle in Siquijor along with her granddaughter, Mori.
While this is sad news for Jean, she said that she respects and supports their decision as a family.
“Siyempre, bilang ina at lola, ayoko ring malayo sila sa akin.
“Pero buhay naman nila ‘yan at sila ang magdedesisyon.
“Ako naman, suporta lang ako sa mga gusto nila.
“Go with the flow na lang ako sa kanila.”
She shared this in an interview with PEP during the presscon of new series “Kambal, Karibal” at Le Reve Events Place, Quezon City last Tuesday.
Perhaps a silver lining to the unfortunate decision was Jean’s niece and adopted daughter named Jessica, whose mother abandoned her.
It was the veteran actress herself who fixed the papers for her to legally adopt the child.
“May pamilya na kasi si Jennica, tapos si Kotaro malaki na rin.
“Wala na akong mabe-baby sa bahay.
“E, itong si Jessica noong dumating sa buhay ko, lakas makabata sa akin.
“Na-miss ko ang may inaalagaan ako na baby kaya ayan, nag-ampon ako ng pamangkin ko.
“She’s so cute at napakakulit.
“Kapag inaayusan ako, sumasali siya. Nagme-makeup din siya!”
Like a proud mother, Jean once put up a photo of Jessica on her Instagram account last October 15.
In another light, Jean is back as a kontrabida in the new primetime series “Kambal, Karibal“. According to her, she has refrained from accepting antagonistic roles for a long while, so she had to adjust for her the show.
“Ang tagal ko kasing hindi nagkontrabida, di ba?
“Unlike before, magkakasunod siya.
“E, bigla akong napahinga kaya parang nangalawang ako!”
She even made a reference to her popular character Madame Claudia in the classic romance series “Pangako Sa ‘Yo“.
“Kaya super-adjust ulit ako sa pagiging kontrabida.
“Yung role ko rito, palengkera na mukhang pera. Walang breeding.
“Kayanag-enjoy ulit ako sa pagiging kontrabida ko.
“Parang bumalik lang ulit si Madame Claudia!”
