MANILA -- On her 10th year as a Kapamilya talent, actress-host Toni Gonzaga on Monday inked a new three-year-contract with network ABS-CBN.

"Very special ang pagpirma ko with ABS-CBN because I'm celebrating my 10th year as a Kapamilya this 2015 and I'm happy to renew my contract with them kasi, in my heart, I'm certified and forever a Kapamilya," Gonzaga said.

According to the actress, ABS-CBN agreed to some adjustments as she is set to settle down this year with long-time boyfriend, director Paul Soriano.

"May mga kaunting adjustments doon sa contract but definitely one thing I can assure... no matter what happens I'm still a Kapamilya," she said.

Asked if there will be a problem with her contract if ever she gets pregnant right after her wedding, Gonzaga said: "Hindi naman siguro. Kaya siguro medyo natagalan ng pag-aayos nung contract kasi may kaunting adjustments but definitely it's within the contract. Kung ano ang mangyayari sa akin in the future, may adjustments at flexible 'yung contract for that."

"I'm happy kasi iba talaga magmahal ang Kapamilya," she added.

Part of Gonzaga's new contract is hosting a new reality show, as well as the new season of "Pinoy Big Brother" in June.

Gonzaga also revealed that she will be doing a new series -- her first in almost a decade as her last teleserye was "Crazy For You" with Luis Manzano back in 2006.

"Parang first time ko yata after eight or nine years," noted Gonzaga, who is also currently shooting a movie with actor Coco Martin.

The wedding

Meanwhile, Gonzaga also shared that she has already picked her wedding gown.

"Nag-fitting na. Magpa-final fitting na lang, I fly back for the fitting," she said, adding that she will announce her wedding date after her movie with Martin.

"Siguro ang masasabi ko pa lang, definitely it's going to be this year. But siguro tatapusin ko muna 'yung film. I also committed myself to finishing the film with Coco, tatapusin muna natin 'yun at saka siguro pwede kong sabihin kung kailangan ang date or month ng wedding," she added.

Gonzaga said she is also looking forward to her honeymoon and overseas trips with Soriano.

"I want to travel with Direk Paul, super talaga. ...We are trying to look at somewhere far from my parents para di makakasunod. Kasi first time naming magta-travel, first time sa lahat kasi kapag nagkita kami sa ibang bansa, kasama ko si mommy at daddy lagi. Ito, wala na," she said.
