16 Aug – Ai-Ai delas Alas recently revealed that she plans to take a long hiatus from work to focus on getting pregnant.

As reported on Inquirer, the actress, who spoke to the media about her pregnancy plans, shared that she is hoping to complete as many acting projects as she can before the end of the year, as she is getting an in vitro fertilisation next year.

"That's why I'm trying to finish everything, including a movie for the next Mother's Day. I will be working and doing promo until around May. And then I'm off," she said.

Asked why she doesn't opt for a surrogate instead, delas Alas said that she is confident in her own health to carry her own baby.

"If [it doesn't succeed], then we will resort to surrogacy. But I am healthy so I think I can do it," she said, adding that her planned hiatus is to ensure that the chance of a successful pregnancy is high.

delas Alas tied the knot with younger husband Gerald Sibayan in 2017.
