MANILA, Philippines - After raising body temperatures in her sexy films, the country's only "Pantasya ng Bayan" Joyce Jimenez is turning over a new leaf and is now a full time mom.

Jimenez presented her 5-month-old pride and joy, Jorja Ely, in Sunday's episode of "The Buzz."

The sexy actress had set aside her acting career for years after she married Paul Ely Egbalic in 2008. She gave birth to her firstborn last October 16, 2009 in Los Angeles ,California.

Jimenez proudly said that she is a full time mom and really hands-on when it comes to the needs of her baby. She said she is breastfeeding Jorja instead of relying on milk supplements.

"I think just having her in my life (is the best)," Jimenez said.

The actress said she also had to go through a period of adjustment from being a single mom to becoming a full time-housewife and mother.

"I'm not gonna lie. Mahirap kasi. I came from a life here na medyo privileged. I had a lot of help when I was here. I had a driver. I had a yaya. From there, I went to becoming a full time housewife and a mother so ako ang lahat. Ako ang luto, ako ang laba," Jimenez said.

Joyce who is know for her sexy movies like "Scorpio Night 2," "Biyaheng Langit" and "Piny Pie," said that she is still willing to make a comeback in showbiz.

"I would like to come back and it's in my blood na talaga. Hinahanap hanap at gusto ko talaga," Jimenez said.

Currently, Jimenez is busy with her lingerie business "Private Joyce Intimate Collection."
