MANILA, Philippines – Got good genes?

Amid her split with presidential son Baste Duterte, actress Ellen Adarna revealed her intention to get married only when she reaches 40.

So, basically, that’s 11 years from now.

According to the 28-year-old, she has already talked with her parents about her marital plans and intent to have a child first before she gets married.

“I’m turning 29 this April but I told my dad I’m gonna get pregnant when I’m 30. “No, I don’t want to get married, maybe when I’m 40,” the Philippine Daily Inquirer quoted her as saying. “Gusto ko anak muna [I want a kid first]. And I talked to my parents about it already and yeah, I just want to find a partner with good genes.”

Adarna added that she already has an ex-boyfriend, a foreigner, in mind to be the father of her child.

“I’m really gonna get pregnant, promise. Meron na akong ka-deal [I already made a deal with someone],” she said.  “I have to like him, at least like him. May connection man lang. Hindi naman ‘yong pupulutin ko sa gilid-gilid lang [We should have at least a connection. It’s not someone who I should just pick up from any corner].”

The actress, however, did not close the door to other prospective bachelors after she admitted desiring a real relationship.

“I’m open to dating actually. I’m almost 30, so hindi naman [so it’s not like] I’m closing my doors. Ang sarap kayang ma-in love. Gusto kong ma-in love sa totoo lang [It’s feels good to be in love. I actually want to fall in love]”, she said.
