Ruffa Gutierrez says she will support whatever career her two daughters, Lorin and Venice Bektas, decide to take in the future. In an article on, the former beauty queen even described herself as a “stage mom” to her kids.

Alam ko na 'yung feeling ni Annabelle Rama kay Ruffa Gutierrez 'nung araw!” She was quoted as saying in an interview on the November 13 episode of the TV5 show Ang Latest: Uplate. “Ako naman, gusto ko talagang ipakita sa kanila, ‘You know, this is Mommy's life, Mommy's been working since she was 13.' And na-appreciate naman nila yun (Now I now know how Annabelle Rama felt about Ruffa Guttierez before! As for me, I just want to show them, ‘You know, this is Mommy’s life, Mommy’s been working since she was 13.’ And they appreciate that.).”

Ruffa also talked about her daughters’ interests, saying she’s not sure if they want to enter show business. “Sabi nila, mas type daw nila maging singing teacher,” she shared. “Gusto nilang kumanta, at the same time, they like to become preschool teachers. So, hindi ko alam kung mag-aartista sila nang full-time. As long as they are doing well in school, they have good grades, puwede silang mag-part time mag-acting, pagbigyan ang hilig nila (They said they’d rather be singing teachers. They want to sing, at the same time, they also want to become pre-school teachers. So, I don’t know if they’ll be full-time artists. As long as they are doing well in school and they have good grades, they can act part time, I can give them an opportunity to do what they want.).”
