Fitness buff Iya Villania is about to lie low from her intense workouts for a little while.
At the Watsons Switch & Surprise event held on January 26, the television host/actress revealed that she and husband Drew Arellano are planning to have a baby this year.
“I was so inspired last year kasi tinodo ko talaga kasi nga, iba naman yung goals for this year.
“I’d like to think that the years being dedicated to fitness have prepared my body in terms of endurance, conditioning, I’d like to think it would help me.
“Hindi ko na siya masyadong itotodo as much as I did last year.
“Last year pa lang I started taking vitamin like Folic Acid, and I asks a lot of my friends that have kids, yung mga experiences nila.
“So this year, active pa rin pero hindi Olympic level."
NO PRESSURE FROM HUBBY. What does her husband of two years have to say?
Iya quipped, “Wala nga siyang pressure sa akin e nakakainis 'no?
“Minsan nga sinasabi niya sa akin, gawin mo gusto mong gawin sa buhay mo.”
On a more serious note, she added, “Pero he’s always been the type na kung anong gusto ko, isu-support niya, like even with having a kid, he’s been ready ever since we got married.
“He’s been patient with it.
“Kung kailan ako ready, he just wants me to go at my own pace.
“This year sana, project 2016."
The two got married in January 31, 2014.
NURSERY ROOM. Even their home is ready for a baby.
Iya related, “Noong pina-renovate ko yung condo, finorsee ko talaga na kapag may anak na.
"'Tsaka ayaw ko ma-stress kung kailan buntis na ako na, 'Uy, kailangan natin ayusin to.'
“Ayaw ko ma-stress ng ganun, so nung pina-renovate na [condo] namin, dinamay ko na.
“At saka a lot of our friends have kids para kapag bumibisita sila, mayroon din silang play area.
“So we really wanted it to be a place where kids would enjoy, whether kids namin or kids ng ibang tao.”
