Even while stuck at home and in a small taping bubble, the world of Dimples Romana remains full of love. In this edition of Kapamilya Chat, the actress talked about finding bliss in the simplest moments spent with the family and in the continuous grind amid the pandemic.
Dimples’ youngest child Alonzo recently turned six. They opted for a simple celebration at home. She cooked some of Alonzo’s most requested dishes while her eldest Callie baked some goodies. They ate, played, shared stories, and savoured the joy of togetherness. It may be a DIY quarantine birthday but what matters is they got to celebrate healthy and complete as a family.
She’s proud of Alonzo, who is slowly becoming one of the most in demand young endorsers today. He had three TVC shots just this month. Dimples mentioned that Alonzo never fails to surprise her with his natural talent in front of the cameras. She’s happy to see him act so jolly and eager during shoots. She’s not the stage mother type, though. She doesn’t even coach her kids in acting. Alonzo’s talent would just come out on cue. Fun fact: he’s even trying to pull out Dimples from this guesting for a TikTok collab.
Dimples reacted to Inigo Pascual’s “future heartthrob” comment about Alonzo. The doting mom revealed that Alonzo takes dance inspiration from the likes of Inigo and Kyle Echarri. It’s also a good thing that she’s friends with these young performers and they’re supportive of Alonzo.
Dimples clarified, though that her kids are not yet allowed to enter showbiz. She’s not yet ready to take that leap. The kids are only allowed to appear on TV commercials subject to some rules.
Callie, on the other hand, is the more reserved type, although she’s learning to shed off the bashfulness. What she likes most about her kids is they’re candid. They don’t even have to pretend in front of the cameras. Their behavior during guestings reflects their attitude at home.
The pandemic is indeed a great teacher. It’s been a wake-up call for everyone to appreciate the little things. Dimples mentioned that good health, family, and just the gift of life are more than enough to fill her heart with gratitude.
She stressed that precautionary measures must still be taken seriously despite the gradual relaxation of quarantine protocols. She’s glad that it doesn’t take much to make her family happy, thus her kids aren’t really bothered by the boredom blues.
Dimples is set to return to full work mode in a few weeks, thus they’re making the most of her pre-lock-in time. She’s starring in the upcoming series “Viral” alongside Jake Cuenca, Charlie Dizon, Jameson Blake, and Ria Atayde. Dimples is thrilled to share the screen with such a powerhouse cast.
To tease the viewers a little, Dimples mentioned that “Viral” is a relevant and timely series that will tackle the impact of social media – “the way it can support or destroy a family.”
“At the end of the day, whether it goes viral or not, whatever we post online, it affects people. So, it’s our choice if we want to affect other people in a good way or in a not so good way,” shared Dimples.
The actress believes this teleserye is a fitting reminder that there are unknown stories behind each viral video we see on social media each day.
