More than two years after Toni Gonzaga-Soriano slipped on the shoes of the double-role of a mother and a wife, she shared the changes in her everyday life now with Paul Soriano and Baby Seve.
In a guesting on “Magandang Buhay” with her sister Alex, the hosts asked how Toni is able to balance her career and her new roles. Currently, Toni is shooting for the movie “Last Night” with Piolo Pascual, she is also on ASAP every Sunday. This routine does not include her hosting of events and endorsements.
Toni shared that this is what makes her admire mothers, especially that she is already one.
“‘Yung mga bagay na akala mo ‘di posible, minsan sa isang araw kulang ang bente kwatro oras para sa mga nanay dahil ginagawa natin lahat para sa pamilya, sa trabaho (Those things that you thought are impossible… sometimes 24 hours in a day is not enough for mothers especially that we do everything for family and our careers),” she started.
“Wala na tayo personal life pero at the end of the day ma-re-realize mo, ‘Ay nagawa ko palang lahat ‘yun,’ (We really have no personal lives anymore, but at the end of the day, you will realize ‘I was able to do it all),’” the host-actress furthered.
Toni said that sleep for her is like crawling onto bed, lying down, closing her, and suddenly just jolting up to open her eyes again.
Alex said that there was one time that Toni was barely able to sleep as she was too fixated on the fact that her son is happily sleeping on her stomach, and had a hard time settling Seve on another position.
Toni was also asked how she is able to spend quality time with her husband when she clearly has a lot on her plate.
“‘Yung sa gabi kapag tulog na [si Seve] tapos bababa kayo tas kakain kayo tapos mag-uusap kami, tapos ‘yung pinaka-favorite naming gawin ni (In the evening when Seve is asleep, we will go downstairs, we will eat and talk. The most favorite thing I do with) Paul is talk about our dreams,” she said.
One by one, the couple go through a run-down of their achievements, forming their bucket lists and wish lists – which they fondly call as ‘One Day…’
For Toni who is not just juggling two but multiple roles both in her career, family, and personal life, it is still important to connect and establish a quality time with her lifetime partner.
