Not a lot of people nowadays seem to remember who Joyce Jimenez is. For those of you who don’t know, Joyce used to be one of the most beautiful and most popular stars in the local showbiz scene. Infact, she was hailed as the “Pantasya ng Bayan” because of her pretty face and irresistible physique. But just like any other star, she suddenly disappeared from the limelight.
Despite her soaring career, Joyce decided to settle down in 2008 with her Fil-Am partner, United States airforce soldier Paul Ely Egbalic. The two of them currently have three beautiful children together: Jorja Ely, Jaysen Elise and Julian Elysson.
In an interview with ABS-CBN, the former sexy actress said that being an actress to suddenly being a mom was a challenging transition for her. She said:
“Iba, iba kasi you went from everyone doing things for me, to me doing everything for someone else.”
She also added that she is quite proud of the movies she made when she was still residing here in the Philippines.
“I'm proud of all the movies I've done. I don't regret anything. Sa akin, when I did those movies I was of age, and that's all they were, they were just roles to me. I don't think it made me any less of a person.”
Now, she resides in San Diego and works as a supervisor. When asked if she wants to be an actress again, she said:
“I love acting. I loved what I did in the Philippines. Kung pwede lang that I can do it and still have my family next to me."
