Actress Nikki Valdez happy as a single mother.

MANILA, Philippines -- Actress Nikki Valdez said she's happy being a single parent but she's still open the possibility that she might get married again.

Valdez, a single mother to daughter Olivia Ysabelle, said it's too early talk about marriage after her separation with Filipino-Canadian husband Christopher Lina in 2010.

"Sa ngayon hindi. But sabi nga nila bata ka pa. Kung mayroon nga naman na darating na somebody who will love me and will love my daughter, I'm open," she said.

"It's going to be a God's gift to me. Bonus na ng buhay ko 'yon for sure kasi happy na din talaga ako sa anak ko," she added.

In 2007, Valdez married Lina and settled in Canada. Speculations about their separation swirled after the actress returned to show business in 2009.

Valdez cited "differences" as the main reason for their separation. She also denied speculations that she was physically and mentally abused by Lina.

Currently, Valdez is part of ABS-CBN's afternoon series "Kung Ako'y Iiwan Mo" with Shaina Magdayao and Jake Cuenca.
