MANILA - Former sexy actress Ara Mina said she will tie the knot with her boyfriend soon.
Mina, whose real name is Hazel Reyes, said she will soon marry Bulacan Mayor Patrick Meneses.
"Soon. Talagang soon na. Hindi naman this year, baka next year," the 34-year-old actress said in an interview on "Kris TV" aired Thursday.
"Because I'm not getting any younger. Two years na kami," she added.
In a previous interview, Mina said she is already preparing to have her own child.
"I'm not getting any younger kaya extra careful ako ngayon sa health ko, para sa pagdating ng baby namin ni Pat, kaya ko pa," she said.
While the actress is hoping to marry Meneses first before having a baby, she is nonetheless prepared to welcome the "blessing" of having a child before walking down the aisle.
"As much as possible, mas gusto naming mauna ang kasal bago ang baby. Pero kung mas mauna man ang baby, ituturing namin siyang blessing," she said.
