26 Aug – Jodi Sta. Maria doesn't like to think of herself as a single mother when her former husband Pampi Lacson was as involved in the life of their son Thirdy as she is herself.
As reported on ABS-CBN, the actress who sat down for an interview with Toni Gonzaga for her online show, "I Feel U" to talk about motherhood, admitted that she felt it would be unfair for her to take all the credit of taking care of her son, as Lacson himself has proved himself to be a good provider.
"I have nothing to say here. I thank the Lord that we're on good terms. We're friends," she said.
Despite her divorce, Sta. Maria stated that she tries her best to give Thirdy a good life, saying that she would make sure to always be there for him to the best of her ability.
Sta. Maria was married to Lacson for five years before it ended in 2010.
On the other hand, when asked if she had ever meddled in Thirdy's personal life, the actress stated that it is okay to do "research" on what her son's likes and dislikes.
"Children have to understand that if we do research, it's not because we want to be a villain or interfere in their lives, which we have the right to be as their mothers, right? We just want to make sure, "is my son getting it right? What are his types?" That is part of our research - on what his likes are when it comes to crushes or class of friends."
