MANILA - While she didn't think it was possible, it seems that actress Iya Villania has fallen even more in love with husband Drew Arellano.
The 27-year-old actress gushed about Arellano in a recent interview and admitted that she enjoys living together under one roof with the TV host, as this was a first for the couple of 10 years.
"Lalong tumindi pa yung pagmamahal namin for each other. Ang saya lang to be together all the time, to do things together all the time — from cooking to cleaning to riding out early in the morning," Villania was quoted in an article published by the Philippine Star.
The celebrity couple tied the knot during an intimate ceremony in Nasugbu, Batangas in January. It was attended by some 200 guests, including Maid of Honor, Nikki Gil.
Villania shared how living with Arellano and doing some of the most mundane of tasks together felt new and exciting, and served as a breath of fresh air for the couple's relationship.
"We've been together for 10 years, so finally on our 10th year we get to live together. Not because for the sake of living together, but because we’re a married couple na. It doesn’t feel like we’re doing anything wrong. It’s something we can do as a married couple," she explained.
"It's just good to always be together and not feel we're spending too much time together," she added.
For her life outside of her marriage, Villania said that she hopes to continue doing what she loves --acting, singing and dancing.
"I'd like to believe I can still go on with what I do. So let's see. Let's see what offers there will be. But I'm game to take on anything that comes my way," she said.
Villania, who recently starred in the local adaptation of the hit musical "Grease," last appeared for a role in television in the ABS-CBN series "Apoy Sa Dagat" alongside Angelica Panganiban, Piolo Pascual and Diether Ocampo.
"I still want to sing and dance. I still want to tour and perform. If there's an action series or a movie that would require my strength and my being rough and tough, I'd be happy to do that," she added.
