Through the years, the public witnessed Geneva Cruz went through life page by page. She’s always been open about her stories of heartaches, the joy of motherhood, and finding the strength to love again.
Geneva flew to the US six years ago to give birth to her second child, London. The singer-actress went home to the Philippines earlier this year just before the lockdown. While her son, Heaven, was left in the US, her youngest, London stays with her.
Geneva described raising two kids with an 18-year age gap as interesting, and challenging. She lived a normal life in America, working in a regular job while tending to her kids without a nanny’s help. Thankfully, her mom was there to assist them.
While it was a different life, she enjoyed every minute of it and became a more hands-on mom. “I realized that all mothers are not ready to be a mom,” she said. A woman can only prepare for the baby’s needs but it’s an entirely different experience once the child comes out. She added that motherhood is different for every woman.
Being a mother is difficult in itself, much more when you are a single mom. Thankfully, Geneva is blessed with a wonderful, supportive clan that makes her feel she’s not alone. As such, Geneva believes that a woman does not need a man just to make her feel happy and complete.
She’s currently in a long-distance relationship with her American boyfriend who she described as principled. She knows she has found an honest man and someone who will not waste her time, and love.
Geneva looks at self-care as a constant commitment as a woman needs to feel refreshed and happy within. She added that taking care of one’s self is more about sanity than vanity. It takes a big amount of self-love for a woman to be able to enjoy her own company and feel complete on her own.
She also opened up about her heartbreaking miscarriage which led her to depression. The experience made her realize the importance of seeking help and just having someone to talk to.
After surviving tough battles in life, Geneva has this as her greatest takeaway: “You are enough!” No matter what other people say, words will never hurt because she is aligned with her inner truths.
