Angel Locsin shared that she and her husband Neil Arce are not yet planning to have a baby

In an interview with Ogie Diaz, the actress revealed that she has a thyroid problem that she is currently addressing.

"Wala talaga sa plano namin ‘yun plus meron din kaming konting tough issues na kailangang ayusin because I have a thyroid problem kasi. I have Hashimoto’s disease, autoimmune disease siya sa thyroid but under control naman siya, under medication ako. ‘Pag okay na siya at saka pa lang mag-baby," she shared.


According to webmd.com, Hashimoto's disease is an autoimmune disease wherein "the immune system turns against the body's own tissues. In people with Hashimoto's, the immune system attacks the thyroid."

Angel remarked that they are also not in a rush to have a child.

"Pero okay kami kasi plano naman talaga namin, chill kami. At saka honestly wala pa kaming honeymoon kasi di ba nag-pandemic so nakulong kami, ‘yung kasal namin sa garden lang di ba? Hindi pa talaga kami nakapag-explore, mag-travel so ang dami pa naming nilu-look forward,"  she stated.

Recently, her friends Angelica Panganiban and Dimples Romana announced that they are pregnant. Asked if she feels pressured about becoming a mom soon as well, she replied, "I’m so happy for them, alam mo ‘yun? Ang tagal nilang hinintay ‘yun. Pinagplanuhan nila ‘yun talaga and darating din tayo diyan."

She continued, "Happy din ako na wala pa ‘ko sa ganu’ng posisyon sa totoo lang, di ba? ‘Pag oras mo na talaga, ‘pag tingin ni Lord na you’re ready bibigyan ka naman niya ng blessing eh. Alam niyang hindi pa ngayon so kahit kami hindi pa ngayon. Kumbaga moment pa nila ‘yun; ‘wag muna ako."

Angel highlighted that seeing her friends like Anne Curtis being a hands-on mom makes her inspired and elated about the future when she becomes a parent herself.

"Alam mo ‘yun, nagi-imagine ka na, parang pagnakikita mo si Anne na sobrang hands-on mom niya kasi kasi talaga na ay 'pag nagkaroon ako ng anak, gusto ko rin na hands-on mom ako. Parang nagi-imagine ka lang sa future. Pero hindi pa, hindi pa sa ngayon" she said.

The actress was also asked about her reaction to people commenting on her weight.

Angel responded, "I am acknowledging yes malaki ako. Eh ano naman ngayon? Bakit may kawalan ba? Minsan kung makalait pa 'yung iba, tinitingnan ko 'yung profile picture, excuse me naman sa'yo... Minsan mapapa-smile na lang ako na okay ouch nahiritan ako pero pagtingin ko sa profile pic, okay lang."

When asked if she is trying to lose weight, she remarked, "I'm trying but I am not trying my best. I don't really care. I'm Angel Locsin. Na-develop ko 'yung sarili ko nang kung ano man ako ngayon. I really don't care."

The Kapamilya star further explained, "What I mean is I don't care kung ano ang opinyon ng ibang tao. Okay ako eh. Ganda ko sa paningin ng asawa ko. I mean darating din tayo diyan. Kung papayat ka papayat ka. But it's not an issue. Parang ang pagiging Angel Locsin ko ay hindi nasusukat kung gaano ako kabigat. Alam ko ang dami kong na-prove sa sarili ko sa ibang tao. So okay na ako don. Bahala na kung ano ang sasabihin. Okay lang. Wala po akong pakialam."
