Iya Villania On Having A Baby With BF Drew Arellano: 'Puro Practice Muna Kasi Practice Makes Perfect'

IYA VILLANIA is obviously well loved by GMA-7 management. Since she moved to them to be a Kapuso, she’s been having one show after another. She replaced Pia Guanio doing Chika Minute in “24 Oras” and Isabelle Daza in “Taste Buddies”. GMA also revived her dormant acting career by making her play Carla Abellana’s best friend in “Because of You”. Now, she is likewise the color commentator who helps out Michael V in the local version on “Lip Sync Battle Philippines” that starts airing on February 27 replacing “Celebrity Bluff”. Their first guest stars are TomDen, Tom Rodriguez and Dennis Trillo.

Iya remains happily married to Drew Arellano. Tomorrow, Friday, they are leaving for Australia and New Zealand. Drew will join a race in New Zealand then they’ll visit her folks in Sydney. They’ll be gone for more than a week so she’ll be advancing the taping of some episodes in “Lip Sync Battle” and “Because of You”. “Doon na kami magba-Valentine and spend our wedding anniversary,” she says.

Don’t they plan to have a baby? “We do, pero puro practice muna kasi practice makes perfect daw.” Iya is enjoying her role as Carla Abellana’s defender and friend in “Because of You”, along with Vaness del Moral. “This week, aapihin na naman siya ni Valerie Concepcion as Veronica at ng mga anak nito.

Kukuyugin sana siya pero dumating kami ni Vaness para ipagtanggol siya so umalis na lang sila. Pero napaamo namin yung youngest child na si Candy nang madapa at mag-sing and dance kami sa kanya para mapatahan siya. Dahil doon, naging friend na ni Carla si Candy kaya invited siya sa birthday party nito. Pero hanggang doon, nakipag-contest si Valerie kay Carla nang pahabaan ng pagsasabi ng Happy Birthday Candyyyyyy!”
