MANILA, Philippines - Jennifer Sevilla was considered to be one of the brightest and most bankable stars in the 90's.
She started out as a child star and a mainstay of "That's Entertainment."
As she grew older she became part of different television shows and movies.
After making a name for herself in the industry, Sevilla disappeared from the limelight.
In an interview with abs-cbnNEWS.com during the Pampers and Gymboree Celebrity Babylimpics event recently, Sevilla revealed where she had been for the past few years.
The actress, 36, said she took a break from showbiz when she married Seymour Go in November 2007. Months after the wedding, Sevilla got pregnant with her first child, Simon Rafa.
"I really decided to put [showbiz on hold] muna and be a full-time mother and at the same time to take care of our businesses. It started when I got married to my husband Seymour in 2007. In 2008, I got pregnant agad. Simon was born. He is now 2," Sevilla said.
The actress said that right now she's enjoying her motherhood and the precious time she spends with her first child.
"I'm cherishing and savoring as much as I can every moment with him because it's very fast lang na lalaki siya," she said.
The actress believes that despite her absence in showbiz, she will always have the chance to go back.
"Ako naman I always had the career. It's always been there. I'd been in the business for more than 20 years and I'm just happy that even if I go in and out of the business, people from the industry still get me," she said.
She admitted that she also misses acting. "Definitely. A lot of the time."
Sevilla shared that there are offers for her to do projects from different networks. She said she might do some work for showbiz before the year ends or early next year.
She said that aside from enjoying her time being a full-time mommy to Simon, she's also focused on managing their hairpiece business.
"You know, I miss showbiz. At the same time, fulfilling sa business namin sa hair. I got to work with so many people from the entertainment industry, theater and fashion. Maybe hindi ako nag-o-on cam but I deal with everybody from the business through the hair [biz] because of our Linel wigs and hair extensions," she said.
According to Sevilla, her last movie with Star Cinema was "Kung Ako Na Lang Sana" with Sharon Cuneta and Aga Muhlach. She also did a film for Gawad Kalinga with Maricel Soriano and one indie film.
