Bea Alonzo has had some pretty interesting romantic entanglements in the past. But in a YouTube video uploaded on Saturday, Feb. 27, she said what she really wants is simple: a boring family life.
In the video, which features Bea having a “dinner date” with actor Ian Veneracion, the 33-year-old actress said that, when she was younger, it was her “dream” to get married and have children at 28.
However, that obviously didn’t happen as she planned. And Bea said she wouldn’t have guessed years ago that she’d be the “last” among her peers to settle down.
“Dati naman, ang pangarap ko lang at 28 was to get married and have children. Tapos ngayon lahat ng peers ko, halos lahat sila about to get married or they’re already married and they have their kids,” she shared.
Bea added, “Kapag inisip ko, I wouldn’t have guessed noong time na yun, 15 years ago, na ako yung huling huling mababakante.”
The actress said that she “always” thought that she’s the marrying type.
Ian, who has worked as Bea’s leading man in the 2017 ABS-CBN soap opera A Love To Last, brought up the idea of having children.
“I really think a child would improve the quality of your life, a marriage wouldn’t,” he said.
But Bea said: “I want to have a partner for life. I want to have someone to be there, to raise a family, build a life me.”
“Seriously, I just want a boring life. A boring family life,” she added.
Bea, who is yet to disclose her relationship status to the public, hasn’t given up on the idea of marriage, of course. “Siguro push natin hanggang 35,” she quipped.
The actress admittd in an interview in December 2020 that she is currently dating someone, and said she is willing to date someone older than her. However, she is a bit more apprehensive about dating someone younger than her.
“Ayoko naman ng sobrang bata. Mas kaya ko matanda ang sobra kaysa sobrang bata. Thirty, I think, is the youngest, or 29. Twenty-eight, parang sobrang bata na,” she said.
In the YouTube video, Bea also said she becomes easily “complacent” as a girlfriend. “I always give too much because I think exerting an effort to make the relationship work,” she said.
Bea also admitted she becomes too attached to her partner when she is in a relationship. “Pag matatapos na yung work, I look forward to seeing that person. And sometimes it scares me kasi, parang feeling ko, ‘Shucks, eto na naman. Magiging dependent na naman ako.’ And it shouldn’t be that way. I’m actually giving that person the license and the power to hurt me,” she shared.
Bea’s last known romantic relationship was with Gerald Anderson; the two broke up in 2019. She is rumored to be currently dating 30-year-old model-actor Dominic Roque.
