Santos, who enjoys a blissful family life along with a thriving showbiz career, enthused she cannot wish for anything more for her birthday, saying she is only thankful for the continued blessings in her life.

“Wala na 'ata akong mahihiling pa, parang sobra-sobra pa ‘yung binibigay ng Panginoon sa akin. Aside from maraming trabaho maraming nagtitiwala sa akin na makapag-endorso ng iba't ibang mga produkto.

"Healthy mga anak ko, so far, thank you Lord wala pa naman bonggang challenge na pumapasok sa aming mag-asawa ngayon,” Santos said during a recent press event where she joined in awarding outstanding mothers.

With a family-showbiz lifestyle which she describes as an “ideal setup,” Santos thanked her supporters who continue to hail her as the superstar of her generation.

“Sobra akong kalmado, sobrang relax. Very thankful ako, very thankful talaga ako na mas at peace na sitwasyon ako ngayon. Nagagawa kong magtrabaho at the same time ang pagiging mommy maging asawa na walang masyadong i-give-up na mga bagay-bagay so its an ideal setup actually.

“So magtatanong ka na lang na, ‘Lord, anong tamang nagawa ko?’ Pero hindi ako nagre-reklamo. Sobra akong thankful at grateful sa lahat-lahat talaga ng nagtitiwala sa akin,” she said.

Santos, who has been vocal about prioritizing her family over work, nonetheless continues to make strides in her career.

She recently finished filming for “Mga Mumunting Lihim,” a film entry to the upcoming Cinemalaya film festival, and is set to host the Philippine edition of reality culinary competition “Master Chef.”
