Gerald Anderson Wants To Have Kids By Age 30Gerald Anderson is looking forward to have a family of his own, and to have kids someday. Gerald recently celebrated his 25th birthday on March 22 with children from two charities he is supporting--the Cancer Warriors Foundation and the Cottolengo Filipino.
The Cancer Warriors Foundation was his chosen charity back during his "Pinoy Big Brother" days while it is in Cottolengo Filipino that he stayed during his preparation for the teleserye "Budoy."
Gerald feels blessed that he was able to spend his special day with the children of the two foundations. They went to the Avilon Zoo. Every year, Gerald takes the kids out for excursion, but this is the first time for most of them to be in a zoo.
"I think, ito yung pinakamasaya kasi kahit matatanda, nag-enjoy sila. Nakakatuwa kasi nae-experience ko ‘to, ‘tapos kasama pa sila."
Asked if he wants to have kids in the future, Gerald said yes although not in the near future. He needs to save for that, he added.
He's currently in a relationship with Kapamilya artist Maja Salvador. They haven't spoken about getting married though since they are both focused on their work. Right now, they are not thinking about raising a family together.
"Ang dami pa naming goals, ang dami pa naming pangarap. Pero ‘yan yung mga later dreams pa."
He thinks that he will have children in five years time, or when he turns 30 years old. He wants to be "friends" with his children, so he doesn't want to have a huge age gap.
Meanwhile, Gerald shared he's happy that he and ex-girlfriend Kim Chiu are now okay. Time heals everything, he added. Slowly, he and Kim are now able to be friends again. They recently did a photoshoot together for an endorsement.
They are happy for each other, Gerald said, although he did not mention the icy relationship between Kim and Maja, who were former best friends. Kim and Maja became estranged when the latter welcomed Gerald's advances.
Is he open to working with Kim again? Probably in the future, the actor said. "Why not? Madami pa ring mga Kimeralds. I think they deserve a project."
