MANILA - Actress and television host Heart Evangelista is looking forward to starting a family with her husband, Senator Francis "Chiz" Escudero.

In an interview with reporters on Tuesday, moments after Escudero admitted defeat in the vice-presidential race, Evangelista expressed joy over the idea of quieter times and finally getting some alone time with her husband.

"I'm pretty happy kasi we have so much to do," she said. "We just got married, magho-honeymoon pa kami finally tapos magba-baby pa kami. There's so much to do so okay lang."

The 31-year-old Evangelista also said that she respects the decision of Filipino voters. "We just also want the best for everyone. So kung ano man iyong will ni Lord, happy kami doon," she explained.

Evangelista married Escudero in February 2015. The latter was previously married to Christine Flores for seven years. Their marriage was annulled in 2012.

Evangelista has been in a relationship with Escudero, who is 15 years her senior, since July 2012.

"Sabi ko kasi noon na pag mag-asawa ako, sabi ko matatahimik iyong buhay ko. And then I ended up with a politician so para medyo gumulo ng slight," she shared. "So I'm looking forward to a bit more quiet life. I'm very okay."

According to the partial and unofficial results from the Commission on Elections, the Liberal Party's Leni Robredo leads the the vice presidential race with 13,868,116 votes as of 12:44 a.m. Wednesday. 

Behind Robredo are Senator Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos with 13,637,381 votes and Alan Peter Cayetano with 5,617,396 votes. Escudero is fourth with 4,764,407 votes.
