MANILA -- Actress Aiko Melendez wants to have another baby with former husband Jomari Yllana

In an interview after a press conference for her upcoming series "Gift Giver," the actress stressed she and Yllana have remained good friends, although she denied that they are back in each other's arms.

 

"Sabi ko, 'Dada, sana pag-40 ko ay magkaroon pa ako ng isa pang anak. Ayaw ko naman magkaroon ng anak sa iba na naman. Gusto ko na kung sakali 40 years old at single ka at single ako bakit hindi natin subukan na tayo na lang,'" admitted Melendez, who is turning 39 next month.

"Siyempre tinawanan na naman ako ng lolo mo at nag-wet ng lips niya, the very Jomari Yllana acting. So sabi ko, 'Huwag ka ngang kiligin diyan.' Sabi niya, 'baliw ka talaga.' Sabi ko, 'Hindi ba kaya mo ako mahal kasi baliw ako?' Sabi niya sa akin hindi naman magbabago ang pagtingin niya," she added.

Asked how she and Yllana have maintained their friendship, Melendez replied: "Prayers. Kasi ipinagdasal ko talaga na maging okay ako, not only kay Jomari, pati kay Martin (Jickain), 'yung tatay ni Marthene and kay Maggie (Tirol), wife ni Martin whom I love and respect kasi sobrang close kami ni Maggie... lahat 'yan pinagdasal ko. That's one thing na ni regalo sa akin ng Diyos."

Yllana is the father of Melendez's son Andrei.
