Anne Curtis Has Had Enough of This Question: When Will You Have a Baby?The actress and host has been married to food blogger Erwan Heussaff since 2017.by Kate Borbon . Published Oct 1, 2019
Since her wedding with food blogger Erwan Heussaff, actress and TV host Anne Curtis has been repeatedly asked about her plans to have a baby. However, Anne is in no hurry at all to get pregnant.
During a press conference for the 10th anniversary of It’s Showtime, Anne was asked about the topic yet again, ABS-CBN News reports. She then asked the press to stop asking women about marriage and having children.
“I think I should take this opportunity [to say] that the press should stop asking that to any woman because you don’t know what they’re going through,” Anne said. “For me, it will happen in God’s time, and I think at any time I’m ready for it. But I’m speaking for every woman. You don’t know what they’re going through.”
Anne continued, “I have a lot of friends who may be trying, and medyo nakakasakit when people keep asking them, ‘When are you going to have a baby?’ Maybe they just don’t want to have a baby.
“I hope you guys don’t take this the wrong way, but I think in respect to every woman, you should stop asking when they’re going to get married, why don’t they have a baby, or when they are going to have a baby.”
Anne’s It’s Showtime co-host and good friend Vice Ganda spoke about how the press might have normalized talking about the topic. “Iyon ang isa sa nakasanayan na we should put a stop [to],” he shared.

In the past, Anne has given similar responses to inquiries about her pregnancy plans. In July 2018, during a press conference for her film Buy Bust, Anne said she wants to take time to relish her new role as wife to Erwan, saying “it was more of I truly believe in enjoying your first year of marriage first. Ganun kami lalo na we still want to travel together, mag-ho-honeymoon pa kami so hindi pa.”
The couple notably delayed their honeymoon, which they had a year after their wedding on November 2018, due to their busy schedules.
At another a press conference in January 2019, Anne said that she doesn’t want to pressure herself to get pregnant. “If it happens, then it happens but I don’t want to tell my body na, ‘O, 2019 na, you have to have a child na,’ because sometimes stress on your body won’t make things happen, ‘di ba?” she explained. “So it’s better to let go and let God take of things na.”CONTINUE READING BELOWwatch now
During a guesting stint on the morning show Magandang Buhay to promote the film Just A Stranger, Anne said she wants to do more films first before having a baby. “I wanted to do more films like this before that happens, kasi parang matagal kang magpapahinga muna pag mommy ka.”ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Anne has not said she is not planning to have kids; in fact, she has expressed the desire to be a mom.
In one episode of It’s Showtime, she and Vice Ganda interviewed a contestant on the singing competition Tawag ng Tanghalan. The contestant talked about the joy she experiences as a mother, causing Anne to respond, “Alam mo, when I hear stories like this, it makes me even more excited to be a mom.”
Vice Ganda also expressed his excitement to see his friend become a mother. “Anne, seriously, I’m so excited. Gusto ko talaga na makita kung paano ka talaga mag-bu-bloom as a mother.”
Vice continued, “Ang dami mong struggles in the past. Maganda ka dati pero sa mga pinagdaanan mo lalong gumanda ang kaluluwa mo. Your kid, I am very sure, will be very proud of you. And you will be such a perfect mother.”ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
