Life has its fair share of bad days but Kapamilya star Dimples Romana opts to focus on the good ones. Dimples is known for her intense commitment to her craft as an actress. Sometimes the workload eats up all her time, even the hours meant for her kids Callie and Alonzo. Now that she’s stuck at home due to the pandemic, Dimples is ready to make up for the time and bonding she missed.
Looking at the situation’s silverlining, Dimples shared the crisis was her wake-up call. It gave her a deeper perspective and drive about life. It helped her understand her environment. She misses the usual grind, of course. But on the bright side, she finally found enough time to accomplish long overdue household tasks.
Dimples revealed that her teenage daughter Callie reminds her of Toni Gonzaga, saying both are creative, bookworms, smart and full of wisdom. On the contrary, 5-year-old Alonzo is more expressive.
“I realized na once you become a mother, hindi na sa’yo ang buhay mo. Ang buhay mo inilalaan mo na sa mga anak mo,” she mused. While other mothers opt to become full-time housewives, Dimples chose to become a working mom. But even if she’s not always around due to the demands of her work, Dimples is thankful that her family never made her feel guilty for it. She’s confident that she was able to raise kids who are respectful of other people’s decisions. Her husband Boyet is fine with her choices as well. Luckily, he isn’t the type of man that easily gets jealous over Dimple’s co-actors.
Yet, she knows not everyone would understand her style. To those judging her for not being around the house all the time, Dimples would tell them, “As people, we should never judge other people’s life. ‘Pag wala sa social media, doesn’t mean it’s not happening. Now more than ever, we need to be sensitive about other people.”
Talking about her job as an actress, Dimples denied the assumption that real friends can never be found in showbiz. Her friendship with Angel Locsin, Bea Alonzo, and Beatrice Saw would debunk that old showbiz premise. Dimples revealed that Bea is Callie’s godmother. Their friendship alongside Beatrice and the rest of the “One More Chance” cast grew deeper on the set.
Dimples and Angel started to become buddies twelve years ago. Their friendship has gone a long way and in the midst of a pandemic has led them in building a fundraising project for our country’s frontliners. The series of philanthropies intensified Dimples’ admiration for Angel, and for Ann Curtis who also spearheaded the charity drive despite the hectic mom life in Australia. Dimples added that Toni Gonzaga is among those who supported the cause.
