MANILA - While they have no plans of getting married soon, Angelica Panganiban said she considers her boyfriend, actor John Lloyd Cruz, as "husband material."

In an interview on "Tapatan ni Tunying" aired Thursday, the 27-year-old actress said she admires Cruz's relationship with her parents and how he takes care of them despite being busy with his career.

"Sobra [ko siyang nakikita na 'husband material']. Natutuwa ako kung paano niya asikasuhin 'yung family niya, lalo na 'yung mommy niya," she said.

Panganiban added: "Ako, naniniwala ko doon, eh -- kung paano mo mahalin 'yung mommy mo... Talagang ang taas ng tingin ko sa mga ganoong klaseng lalaki."

Cruz and Panganiban have been together for 11 months.

Asked when they plan to get married, the "Banana Split" mainstay said, "Kung doon kami papunta, hindi pa siguro siya mangyayari this year or next year."

"Marami parin siyang gustong ma-achieve sa personal niyang buhay. Ako rin naman, ganoon din ako," she added.

Both Kapamilya stars are gearing up for their respective film projects under Star Cinema. Panganiban will co-star with Gerald Anderson in a romance-drama film by Ruel Bayani, while Cruz will work with Gretchen Barretto, Richard Gomez, and Jessy Mendiola in a legal drama movie by Chito Rono.
