MANILA -- Veteran actress-singer Sharon Cuneta is excited to be one of the coaches on the third season of "The Voice Kids."

Cuneta will replace Sarah Gernomino, who earlier explained that she wants to concentrate on "ASAP" and hone her talents as an artist.

Cuneta said she is thrilled to join fellow coaches Lea Salonga and Bamboo.

"Sobrang excited ako. I will be part of 'The Voice Kids' with, of course, Bamboo and Lea Salonga," she told ABS-CBN News during her renewal of vows with husband Francis Pangilinan.

But Cuneta's surprises do not end there.

She also teased her fans that she will have a "really big" surprise for them this year. This, she said, is the reason why she has not been active on social media for quite a while.

"To all my supporters and fans, my Sharonians whom I love very much, alam kong ang tagal kong nawala sa Facebook, 'di ba? Sadya po 'yon. I have been hibernating," she said.

"I've been hiding because I have been working on myself para i-surprise kayo. Hindi pa ako tapos but I have lost a lot of weight, preparing for something really big."

When asked to spill some details, she just said: "It is a huge, huge surprise na hindi pa talagang puwedeng i-announce. Pero ang masasabi ko lang po, kumapit po kayo ng mahigpit na mahigpit," she added.
