MANILA, Philippines - Beauty queen turned actress Lara Quigaman wants to have as many children as possible.

In an interview with the morning show "KrisTV," Quigaman said, if given the chance, she would like to have a dozen kids with soon-to-be-husband, actor Marco Alcaraz.

"After the wedding, gusto ko talaga mag-baby agad. Kasi hindi naman ako sure kung magkaka-baby agad ako. By that time 30 na ako. Gusto ko maraming anak. Gusto ko as many as 12 pero gusto ko lang 'yon," Quigaman said.

"Yun lang naman ang gusto ko pero alam kong imposible. Ang realistic number ay four, malay mo makalusot mga anim. Si Marco gusto niya isa o dalawa lang kasi anim na silang magkakapatid," she added.

She said that after her wedding, which is set to happen this year, she would really concentrate on taking care of her family.

"But hanggang kaya kong mag-work, I will work," Quigaman said.

The actress believes that Alcaraz, her sweetheart of three years, is really God's answer to her prayers.

"Talagang alam ko from the beginning na na-meet ko siya na siya talaga ang pinadala ni Lord for me. Hindi niya talaga ako inaaway kahit inaaway ko siya. Sobrang love niya lang ako at sobrang mapasensiya siya. The sweetest talaga ever," Quigaman said.

Quigaman is part of ABS-CBN's upcoming series "Princess and I."
