MANILA - Actress Iza Calzado, 31, is hoping to have her first baby in a few years.

The actress, who is part of the upcoming series "Hawak Kamay," said her goal is to give birth at age 35.

"I'm not yet ready to have my own. Thirty-five, that's my goal," she said at the "Hawak Kamay" family day at Hospicio de San Jose in Manila.

Calzado explained that when she gets married, she would first like to travel first with her husband.

"Hindi naman sa takot. Hindi pa lang ako handa [ngayon] kasi siyempre hindi pa ako magpapakasal this year, definitely. Ewan ko next year. I don't really know when and when I do get married, I want to travel first, take some time off. So give me some time. I'm trying to target 35 to have a kid," she said.

Calzado said that for now, she is enjoying her bonding moments with the "Hawak Kamay" child stars -- Andrea Brillantes, Yesha Camille, Xyriel Manabat and Zaijian Jaranilla -- as well as her leading man, Piolo Pascual.

"Working with the kids, sobrang galing nila. Sabi ko nga, papunta na ako sa nai-insecure na ako sa mga ito, ang galing-galing ng mga ito. More than that, nakaka-inspire sila, ganado kaming magtrabaho," she said.

Aside from "Hawak Kamay," Calzado is also shooting the horror film "Maria Leonora Theresa" and another movie titled "Somebody To Love."
