Judy Ann Santos has a battle with the bulge

JUDY ANN SANTOS had her first presscon since she gave birth to Baby Lucho last Thursday as the new endorser of Lactum 6+. She’s still trying to shed off the excess pounds she gained during her pregnancy. “Huwag kayong maingay at dalawang girdles ang suot ko,” she joked while on stage.

Is Juday replacing Claudine Barretto, Carmina Villaroel and Jodi Sta. Maria? “No, she’s a wonderful addition to the Lactum family,” says Lactum marketing manager Eva Barrett. “Wala siyang pinapalitan.”

“We got her as she’s the perfect Lactum mom,” says Mead Johnson Pres. Paul Richards. “She’s warm, nurturing, reliable and very family oriented, a great 100 percent panatag mom.”

“It’s easy for me to endorse them as my daughter Yohan has really been drinking it even before they got me,” says Juday. “I go for truth in advertising. Lactum is really for Yohan and not for Baby Lucho as it’s not an infant formula. Besides, Lucho is being breastfed. Tuwang-tuwa si Yohan each time she sees our Lactum commercial on TV. Kinikilig siya and even asked me, ‘Will I be famous?’ Sabi ko, no.”

How is it being a mom? “Very happy. Di ba obvious sa katawan ko? It’s hard for me to leave the house ng matagal kasi si Lucho, ang bilis lumaki and I want to be there sa bawat milestone na gawin niya.”

Do they intend to have another baby soon? “As of now, okay na kami sa dalawa, but kung may dumating pang isa, di sige, go go go. Bahala na si Lord.”

When is she going to do a new soap or movie? “Naku, aayusin ko munang katawan ko before I shoot. But as of now, I’m committed to host ‘Junior Master Chef’ sa ABS starting March 31. This will run up to June. May offer ang GMA Films to do ‘Ouija 2’ and a U.S. producer for a film on OFW’s to be filmed in Las Vegas, but pinag-aaralan pa namin kung anong gagawin ko.”
