We already know how a talented artist Jopay Paguia is for she can sing and dance being a member of the premier all-female group SexBomb Girls, and can act, too, as she appeared in a number of films and teleseryes throughout her 20-year career. These include the 2016 Kapamilya drama Tubig at Langis wherein he played the role of Tonette Bernardo, one of the best friends of Cristine Reyes’ character Irene.
However, what many of us probably haven’t witnessed yet is how she is as a mom to Isabelle Alessa, her adorable two-year-old daughter with Manoeuvres member Joshua Zamora. She gave birth to her on December 28, 2017, more than three years after they tied the knot in 2014.
Thus, we did a little stalking on her Instagram to find out, and then collated their lovely and cute snaps together in this gallery.
Going through the photos and videos she uploaded, it’s definitely not difficult to tell how an awesome, doting, and hands-on mom Jopay is and how apparently well-bonded they are. She frequently posts something about Alessa, whom she fondly calls as “Kulechay”, and enthusiastically narrates to her followers the story behind each of those. They’re often spotted wearing “twinning” outfits and having ‘kulitan’ moments with her, which she sometimes records via TikTok.
Since she and Joshua are both exceptional dancers, Baby Alessa certainly gets free dance lessons from them, which has also been their way of bonding together.
In her post for their beloved daughter’s first birthday celebration two years ago, the 37-year-old dancer-actress wrote, “God knows kung gaano ka namin ka mahal and sobrang thankful kami kay Lord nang dumating ka sa buhay namin ng daddy mo…Thank you anak sa pagdating sa buhay namin ng daddy mo, araw-araw akong magpapasalamat kay God dahil binigyan Niya kami ng isang angel na katulad mo – sweet, happy baby, mabait, at charming na bata. Nandito lang kmi ni daddy para gabayan ka palagi. Mahal na mahal ka namin anak.”
So, if you miss seeing Jopay on-screen, don’t miss the re-run of Tubig at Langis , weeknights on Primetime Bida.
