More than three months since she tied the knot with Rob Mananquil, Maxene Magalona said she and her husband are still living their lives the same way they used to.
“Ang usapan naman namin ni Rob, kumbaga ‘yang wedding namin is just a celebration. After nun, tuloy ang buhay. Kumbaga we will still support each other in our individual dreams. Like with him he’s also pursuing his music and ako rin tinutuloy ko ‘to [acting]. And ako naniniwala talaga ako na what’s meant for me na projects ‘yun ang mapupunta sa'kin,” she said during the opening of an all-day breakfast shop near ABS-CBN which she co-owns with her family.
“So natutuwa ako ngayon na although matagal ako na nagpahinga after Doble Kara, okay na rin kasi nakapagfocus ako dun sa wedding, nagawa namin ng maayos. At least ngayon back to work na. It’s a brand new year and sobrang excited,” she continued.
But is she ready to have babies anytime soon?
“Ayun na nga rin, ‘yung soap tinanong din nila kung may plans ako kasi siyempre alam mo ‘yun ‘yung production if ever. Sabi ko no need to worry kasi hindi pa namin ‘yun - wala pa sa plans namin ‘yun. Maybe in a couple of years but like right now, ang dami pa naming gustong matupad na pangarap. So ‘yun,” she said.
“After two years pa kasi naisip ko hindi na kami bata ni Rob so hindi naman ‘yun parang basta bahala na or whatever. Kung kayang planuhin ng maayos, gagawin talaga namin - nang nakaplano ng maayos lahat,” she stated, explaining why she and Rob wanted to have babies after two years.
Maxene also shared that she and Rob will limit their children to two kids only.
“‘Yun nga lang I mean I come from a big family of eight children so kahit gustuhin ko man magkaroon ng more than - I would not run eight kids but dahil nga sa situation na ibig sabihin ganitong edad ako nagpakasal and then ito na ang age ko now, I will have to - siguro mga two to three kids banyan. Kasi nga given my age task we need to be realistic din- hindi naman bahay-bayahan lang ‘to,” she said.
The 31-year-old star also expressed how thankful she is for having a supportive husband in Rob.
“But siyempre I mean I’m just very, very excited and very blessed to have a partner who’s so supportive. Talagang loving in all kinds of ways. I’m just happy to be going on this journey with the right person,” she said.
