Toni Gonzaga is happy to be back hosting the singing talent search show The Voice.
“Nakaka-miss din ang The Voice lalo na first time din ang teens,” Toni told entertainment reporters during a visit on the set of The Voice Teens last March 24.
Toni said much have changed since she started hosting the show when it started in 2013.
It may be recalled that Toni gave birth to her son Severiano Elliott in September 2016.
The newbie celebrity mom admitted, “Parang iba na ang affiliation ko ngayon sa mga bata kapag nakakakita ako ng mga bata, mas naaapektuhan ako.
“Kasi dati, ang affiliation ko as an artist, ganyan din ang naramdaman ko noong nag-a-audition ako.
“Ngayon naman, mas nakaka-relate ako sa mga magulang.
“Parang kapag nakita nila ang anak nila na nakapasok, naluluha ako para sa kanila.”
As a mom, Toni became more connected to parents of The Voice hopefuls.
She explained, “Kasi, nararamdaman ko na mas higit ang kaligayahan ng isang magulang kaysa sa nararamdaman ng isang anak.
“Parang kapag nagkaanak ka pala, yung pala yung parang your heart goes out of your body.
“Parang it's like seeing your heart walk around.”
The 33-year-old actress-TV host will be co-hosting the first edition of The Voice Teens with Luis Manzano.
Both were co-hosts in the second season of The Voice in 2015.
Aside from Toni, Sarah Geronimo is also returning as one of the coaches in The Voice Teens.
The Popstar Princess will join coaches Lea Salonga, Sharon Cuneta, and Bamboo.
