After almost a year of being married, KZ Tandingan said she has been enjoying discovering more about her husband TJ Monterde.

Basta sobrang magkaiba kami in everything. Parang ganun. Magkaiba at magkapareho. Kahit sa mga hilig pero both are very appreciative kung ano man yung gusto ng isa. For example si TJ nag-bi-binge watch siya ng mga rap videos. At kahit gaano namin ka-hard i-try  an mag-match yung gising at tulog namin, ang ending nag-aaway kami (laughs). Hindi kami nagkakasundo kasi parang si TJ mas maaga talaga siyang nagigising tapos ako yung mas late so may mga bagay na kumbaga yung utak ko mas gumagana sa gabi. So yung mga bagay na kailangan ko gawin natatapos ko siya sa gabi. May mga kailangan ako isulat, may mga kailangan ako gawin at ayusin, ginagawa ko yun sa gabi. So minsan gusto na niya matulog tapos hindi siya makatulog ng hindi ako katabi,” she shared.

The 29-year-old singer and songwriter, who recently released her first Visayan song ’Dodong’ which she wrote for her husband in 2019, said that having a baby is still not in the cards for them this year.

Kung binabayaran kami every time na tinatanong kami niyan siguro mayaman na kami (laughs). Actually sa seven years namin na together, dalawang beses pa lang kami nakaalis ng Manila na kaming dalawa lang. Tagaytay pa at saka Batangas. Both happened itong taon lang na ‘to. Ang dami pa naming gustong gawin,” she said.

If it weren’t for the ongoing pandemic, KZ shared that she and TJ would already have been traveling to Japan.

“Favorite talaga namin yun but never pa kami nakapunta na kaming dalawa lang. It’s always us and a group palagi. Like sampu kami, ganyan ganyan. Siyempre kasi isa din sa reasons why ayaw muna namin mag-baby is because kumbaga pag baby na kasi it changes everything. Kumbaga pag may baby na automatically yung baby becomes the top priority over anything. So gusto muna namin ma-enjoy yung time na kaming dalawa lang muna. Kasi pag may baby ka na you have to really plan kung ano yung mas makakabuti, kung ano yung child-friendly, malapit ba ito sa ospital just in case something happens,” she explained.
