(PEP.ph ) Nancy's desire to join a noble advocacy was also brought by the change in her lifestyle and outlook ever since she became a mother to twin boys, courtesy of her non-showbiz boyfriend who reportedly is the son of a hotel magnate from the South.
She described motherhood as "exciting" and the "biggest and craziest role I've ever taken in my entire life."
When she got pregnant, Nancy was in the midst of reinventing her showbiz image from an actress to a singer-performer. She gave birth in Canada last March 25.
"Mahirap, especially 'yong four months na nasa Canada kami, lalo na kasi walang helper," revealed Nancy. She also mentioned the possibility of her getting married in the immediate future.
"It was really, really, difficult. Pero it was nice at the same time because me and my fiancé, we learned a lot about each other... He's very hands-on in taking care of the babies."
Nancy returned to the country in her desire to resume her stalled career. It helps that her boyfriend understands her need to continue working as long as "the baby will always come first, we'll discuss things together and we're pretty good with that naman."
Being a mother taught Nancy the value of selflessness and putting her personal needs second only to her children's welfare.
"Dati ang iniisip ko lang sarili ko pero ngayon hindi na puwede," said Nancy, and then she beamed, "Baby first!"
