Although she has yet to walk down the aisle, Toni Gonzaga admitted she is already looking forward to having her own baby.
Gonzaga said she can’t help but imagine how it would be like to raise her own child every time she looks after her young nephew.
“Parang practice na din namin ni Alex (her sister) ‘pag nagkaanak na kami, lalo na ako. Hindi na rin malayong mangyari ‘yun in the near future. Iba kasi ‘yung happiness na nabibigay ng bata. Mas genuine, mas real, mas pure ‘yung joy,” she said.
While aware that being a mother would entail a lot of responsibilities, Gonzaga said she is excited to teach her own child good values just like what her parents taught her and Alex.
“Hindi mo sila pwede iwanan. Ganun pala kaimportante na dapat focused yung attention mo sa bata, sa baby. Dapat full attention, as in you will really forget yourself. Kailangan first priority mo ‘yung bagets. Nae-excite nga ako eh,” she said.
Asked what kind of mother she will be, the actress said: “May pagka-strict ako na mommy na cute na mabait. Disciplinarian pero fun.”
Despite this, Gonzaga maintained that she still needs to prepare herself before deciding to build her own family.
“It takes a lot of maturity, physically, emotionally and spiritually to raise a kid. Hindi biro magkaroon ng anak. Dapat talaga kayang kaya niyo na para mabigay niyo ‘yung pag-aarauga that they really deserve,” she said.
Gonzaga has been in a relationship with movie director Paul Soriano for seven years now. (MNS)
