Julia Barretto is now ready to live independently. But wait, not completely independent as she said she would still be going to her mom’s house to “eat there every day.” In fact, the home that she is now building is located just near her mom’s residence.
“She’s just enjoying the moment that I’m still under her roof,” Julia said laughing; referring to her mom, as per a news story by PEP.
“But I always tell her that I’m still gonna be in her house every day to eat there,” the young actress added.
The 20-year-old Kapamilya actress is 100% sure her mom will always be available in case she needs anything; saying she believes that since she’s living close to her mom, she’ll be getting daily tips from her.
“And I feel like I will also learn every day as I face those challenges when I actually live in that house already,” she expressed.
Julia first gave a glimpse of the lot property where her house is being built on October 18; when she posted on social media saying: “TY, G for another answered prayer. This is still so surreal to me.”
This only goes to show that Julia knows how to make wise use of her earnings from showbiz projects. Aside from endorsements, Julia starred in two movies in less than a year — blockbuster movie “Vince & Kath & James”, official entry to the 2016 Metro Manila Film Fest last December, and the most recent one, “I Love You To The Stars And Back”, shown in August this year.
When did she decide to live on her own at such a young age? Julia said: “Since I was 18, I was already planning of building a home. But maybe, at the time, I wasn’t really ready yet to do anything. But now that I am already 20, I think I’m more than ready.”
Julia’s home is expected to have her personal touch; saying she’s excited to pick out the perfect furniture, interior design and everything else for it.
When asked what she’s most excited about, Julia replied: “But the thing I’m most excited about is my walk-in closet.”
