Katrina Halili said she is happy being single at the moment.
“Nag-e-enjoy pa ‘ko na single... kahit date ayoko. Bina-blind date ako, ayoko, e.
However, she clarified that she still intends to settle down a few years from now.
"Pag mga 35 siguro,” the 32-year-old actress said at the press conference of The Stepdaughters, the upcoming GMA-7 afternoon teleserye that she top-bills with Megan Young.
The event was held at the Prime Hotel in Quezon City, January 2, Friday.
According to her, she is content being a single mom to her five-year-old daughter, Katrence or Katie, her daughter with former partner Kris Lawrence.
GOOD EXAMPLE. Since her breakup with the RnB singer back in 2014, Katrina has been biding her time as far as love life is concerned.
She explained, “Simula nung nagka-Katie ako, gusto ko pag nagkaroon ako ng relasyon, tama na, 'tsaka isa lang. Siya na.”
More importantly, Katrina said she wants to be a good example to her daughter.
She mused about Katie growing up, "'Tapos maging dalaga na ang anak ko, 'tapos magpapaligaw-ligaw... magdadala-dala ng lalaki do’n sa bahay.
“'Tapos sasabihin, ‘Bakit? Ginagawa mo din, di ba?' Ayokong ganunin niya ako.
“Simula nung nagka-Katie na ‘ko, naging behaved talaga ako sa lahat ng kilos ko, sa sinasabi ko, sa ginagawa ko… talagang iniingatan ko.
“Ayokong masampal sa ‘kin.”
ON GOOD TERMS WITH KRIS. Katrina also confirmed that she and her daughter recently bonded with Kris at a hotel in Pasay City.
She related, “Binigay niya kasi yung room for Katie. Hinatid lang niya kami ro’n, 'tapos dun kami natulog ng mama ko, nila Katie.
"Kasi gusto ni Katie mag-stay sa hotel, gusto niya maligo sa bathtub and pool.
“Sinabi ko naman pag may mga free room siya, ibigay niya kay Katie kasi gusto ng bata na mag-swimming.
“Nag-bonding sila, naglaro naman sila don, 'tapos nung gabi, umalis na rin si Kris.”
The actress also said that she and Kris are very much on good terms, “Oo, yes. Okay naman po kami.”
