Sta. Maria, who announced her separation with Lacson in March 2011, kept silent when asked about her reaction to her husband's relationship with Moto.

The "100 Days to Heaven" star, who is turning 29 on June 16, said she would rather focus on her blessings and her son with Lacson Thirdy.

"After all the blessings na natatanggap ko, I'm just paying it forward," she told ABS-CBN News on Tuesday, referring to plans of celebrating her birthday by doing charity work.

"I'm very happy kasi of all the blessings na dumarating that God has been giving me," she added.

Sta. Maria's latest blessing comes in the form of a starring role in a new series under the Kapamilya network. She is set to star in a new series with actor Richard Yap and child star Mutya Orquia.

On having a busy schedule and making time for her son, she said it is only a matter of setting priorities.

"Time management rin naman talaga, and for me I know naman my priorities, at number one na diyan 'yung anak ko. Now we spend a lot of time together, nandyan ang pagluluto, pamamasyal, especially dahil bakasyon. Kasi 'pag nag-start ang school, hindi ko na siya masyado makakasama," Sta. Maria said.

Following the confirmation of Moto's relationship with Lacson, photos of the sexy actress with Thirdy surfaced on micro-blogging site Twitter.

Sta. Maria had previously said she and Lacson have managed to become friends following their separation last year.

She added that they have also already moved on and decided to keep their friendship for the sake of their son. 

In the same interview on the morning talk show "Kris TV," Sta. Maria also said she is ready to see Lacson in another relationship.
