Angel Locsin said she feels excited to spend her future with Neil Arce, but admitted she also feels pressured to have kids with him soon.
In a vlog released on the day she announced she got married to Neil in an intimate civil wedding ceremony, Angel released a vlog where she showed her preparations as she moved out of her condo.
“Hindi naman ito ang unang beses kong maglipat. Nakailang transfer na rin kami ng bahay. Pero, ito siguro ‘yung medyo ma-effort. Mas matagal,” Angel said.
Joined by her friends to help her pack her stuff, Angel said she’s excited to spend the future with Neil whom she lives with.
“Siyempre excited ako. Super excited. Kasi alam kong kasundo ko si Neil kahit anong mangyari. But ang tagal kong nabuhay mag-isa,” she said.
But Angel said unlike her who is organized and has her own set of rules, Neil is more carefree.
“At I have my own set of rules. Si Neil kasi, napaka-carefree ‘yun eh. Iiwan niya lang kung saan-saan ‘yung gamit. Pero ako, sanay ako na ang remote, dito lang ‘yung remote,” she said.
She also got asked by her friends if she feels the pressure to have a child of her own. Now 36 years old, Angel said she feels like she’s running out of her time with her current age.
She said: “Medyo. Kasi ‘di ba sabi nila sa age ko. Sabi nila kapag ka sa babae parang sabi nila may hinahabol na oras. Pero sa akin parang kung ano ang ibigay na biyaya ni Lord, ‘di ba?”
Admitting she initially wanted to have twin babies, it eventually changed after seeing her friends have their own kids.
“Noon kasi nahihilig ako sa kambal. Kapag nakakakita ako ng kambal, sobrang cute, ‘di ba? Eh wala akong lahing kambal. Pero nu’ng nakita ko ‘yung mga kaibigan ko na nagka-babies na at kung gaano pala kahirap mag-alaga ng bata, sabi ko ‘ay parang di ko yata kaya mag-alaga ng sabay.’ So, kahit isa na lang,” she said.
Reiterating she wasn’t ready when Neil came into her life, Angel said she often gets asked about her plans with him.
“Actually, lahat sila nangungulit na kung ano ang plano ko sa future. Along came Neil. Wala akong kaplano-plano. Na sinabihan ko pa siya na ayoko na magka-boyfriend ever. Siya ang sinabihan ko nu’n,” Angel said.

Despite the uncertainties of the future, Angel said she is confident that she will end up happy with her now-husband.
“With Neil, marami akong bagay na hindi ako sigurado na mangyayari sa future natin. Pero, ‘pag kay Neil, okay ako. Kung maghirap kami sa future, magkagulo sa future, ‘pag si Neil ang kasama ko, masaya ang future ko,” she said.
