Heart Evangelista is ready to have a baby this 2018.
At the same time, the Kapuso actress made it clear that she and husband Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero do not feel pressured, whether it happens sooner or later.
Speaking to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Heart said, “That’s still the plan.
"If it happens, it happens.
“Now, I’m not stopping it from happening.
"Whenever God wants to give us a baby in His perfect time, then it will happen.”
Heart, 33, and Chiz, 48, tied the knot in Balesin Island Resort in Quezon province on February 15, 2015.
Since then, Heart has observed how easily she and Chiz have settled into married life.
“What’s nice about us is that we weren’t pretending to be a certain way when we got married.
“We’re just ourselves.
“So when the reality of marriage really happened, there was really no adjustment.
"I really enjoy being married.”
RELATIONSHIP WITH CHIZ’S KIDS. Heart admitted having initial worries over how it would go with her husband's two kids, Chesi and Quino, from his previous marriage with Christine Flores.
“In the beginning it was hard, I had to adjust. I also didn’t want to overwhelm them.
“But now, they look at me, we have such a good relationship. I think I was overthinking before.
“That’s why now I don’t wanna ask for anything else because everything is just amazing.
“I am really blessed in that way.”
According to Heart, it’s not her intention to replace the mom of Joaquin and Maria Cecilia in their eyes.
All she can promise them is that she will be there to give them a hand with whatever they need.
“I’ll always be Tita Heart. I can never be their mom, but I’ll be there forever.
“Come to their school, see to their food, everything, I’m there.”
KILIG MOMENTS. As for her relationship with Chiz, Heart said that he still surprises her with simple but thoughtful gestures once in a while.
When asked about the last time he made her feel kilig, Heart related that it was when he cooked for her last Monday.
“He didn’t have to because I had a meeting in the house and he had nothing to do with it.
“But he cooked Japanese fried rice, and it was really good, so I really appreciate it.”
