Richard Gomez and wife Lucy Torres-Gomez have always been known as “couple goals.” Their love story has been witnessed by many and up until these days, they are still being watched closely.
The couple are the newest faces of Ultherapy, proving they are indeed a power couple in more ways than one, having been together for over 21 years.
People ask, what could be their secret?
The two have nothing more profound answer than, “It’s just loving each other in small ways and big ways,. We allow each other time for ourselves and I think that’s what makes it so much easier for us to love each other better.”
Both Richard and Lucy embody what it means to embrace a better version of themselves for others, making them the perfect ambassadors for #UltherapyForTwo, Ultherapy’s newest campaign that champions how taking care of yourself allows you to take better care of the people around you.
“We don’t really get a chance to work with each other very often, so this was the perfect chance to spend more time together,” said Richard. “We’re far apart on a daily basis, so we really take any chance we can get to be together. When I had my Ultherapy treatment done, it was even bonus bonding time for us!”
“I’ve had Ultherapy done before, and I really swear by it,” Lucy shared. “It made me look and feel younger and made me feel like I could take on more. The impact that (it) had on me made me want Richard to try it too!”
Many men have yet to be more vocal about how they take care of themselves, but Richard is open about wanting to make sure every aspect of his life is looked after. “Tayong mga lalaki,we have to be more open to these things,” he said. “You’re just pushing yourself to be a better, more confident version of yourself. And that will also affect the people around you.”
According to the couple, it was Lucy who got Richard to explore how to level up in taking care of himself. “Whether it’s her work, her parenting, or her commitment to being a better version of herself—all of it has made me want to do better and be better,” he said.
On Lucy’s end, Ultherapy allowed her to find extra time for herself without sacrificing time spent on her family and work. “No matter how busy I am because of work and being a mom and wife, I make sure there’s room to slip in some me-time, the way I do with Ultherapy. It’s so easy to incorporate into my schedule too,” she said. “You take care of the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of your life so that everything comes together.”
Juliana at the UP
Richard Gomez and Lucy Torres are happy that daughter Juliana Gomez chose the University of the Philippines (UP) for her college edicatio.
"I'm happy that she's in UP because that's where I went, that's where [Richard] went also," Lucy said in an interview at the Ultherapy For Two event.
"I'd like her to experience that environment. I had a really nice time in UP. Maybe it's different kasiUP Cebu ako. Wala namangbig demonstrations. UP Diliman is a much bigger campus."
It was Juliana's decision to enter UP, but she did consider other universities for college.
Richard said, "I brought her also to Ateneo campus. Sabi ko, 'Take a look at it. We'll go around.' I brought her to Diliman. Sabi ko, 'Takea good look again.'"
Many of Juliana's friends are off to study college abroad, but Richard and Lucy are more than thankful that their 18-year-old daughter is staying here.
Richard said, "Early on, sabi ng mommy niya at sinabi ko rin, 'Dito ka talaga mag-aaral.'"
Lucy added, "Parang fetuspa siya, 'Philippines ka lang. Philippines. Maybe, she can go there for Master's, but for now, we want to keep her close...It's hard enough now with all of us being in the Philippines, but different locations. So, how much more if ganun?Tatlo-tatlo na nga lang kami, 'tapos mawawatak pa.I tell her na maybe if there were five of them, then I'd be more open to sending some of them abroad."
