MANILA --- TV host Bianca Gonzalez said she sees herself having children in five years, but not before she gets married via the "usual traditional Pinoy" way.

 

The-30-year-old Gonzalez said she has started saving up "for the future," which includes settling down and having a family.

"Siyempre 30 na ako, I have to concretely think about the future. Hindi na mura ang mabuhay ngayon, and in the future if ever, magpapatayo ka ng bahay, magkakaroon ka ng family, oo, kailangan pag-ipunan talaga."

"And yes, that includes settling down. Hindi ko alam kailan, but that includes settling down," said Gonzalez, who is in a relationship with Barako Bull player JC Intal.

Asked if she feels "pressured" to get married, since she is now in her 30s, Gonzalez said, "In fairness, pressure hindi. I think more than anything, I think 'yung lalaki 'yung nape-pressure talaga, eh."

"Pag babae, sitting pretty ka lang, eh. Maghihintay ka lang eh. Kung ayaw niya, 'di wag. Kung gusto niya, edi pag-isipan," she said.

The "Umagang Kay Ganda" host related that she has always had her mind set on going about marriage the traditional way, as seen in Filipino customs.

"Ako, definitely before I get pregnant and have kids, dapat ikasal ako. The usual traditional Pinoy. Ang concept ko ng marriage, magpa-paalam sa magulang ng isa't isa, bago ma-engage, tapos may preparation. May time para mag-prepare, tapos 'yung actual marriage," she said.

As to her preferred "time frame" for settling down, Gonzalez brought up the practicality of conceiving a child relative to a woman's age.

"Im 30 -- ano ba ang [body] clock ng babae? -- gusto ko magkaanak no later than 35, so i-minus mo, somewhere there in between," she said.

When asked hypothetically if she feels "ready" to get married, Gonzalez said, "I can't say I'm ready. I think no girl can ever fully say I'm ready na na magpakasal."

"But then, leap of faith din pag nagse-say yes ang mga babae pag tinatanong sila. But I'll be very lucky if ever, because he's a very good man," she said.
