If you could earn a masters in the subject, it doesn’t matter if you don’t have a bachelors. The masters coursework means you know the bachelors coursework. Try to do a thesis-based masters; those look better for PhD programs. Keep your GPA high and you should be able to get in somewhere.

I don’t see this as a problem. Although you don’t have a bachelor’s in math, the fact that you were able to earn a master’s in it should indicate to universities that you know and are interested enough in math to pursue further studies. The only problem would be if your MA were from a weak school, which might make them wonder about your math preparation.

People often change direction in life. You are making up the things you missed earlier now, so they will no longer be a lack when you apply for a Ph.D. program.
