“I think I should take this opportunity to say that the press should stop asking that to any woman, because you don’t know what they’re going through,” she said.
“For me, it will happen in God’s time, and I think at any time I’m ready for it. But I’m speaking for every woman. You don’t know what they’re going through,” she continued.
Anne said that the question can be hurtful and insensitive especially when she has many friends who are struggling to conceive. “I have a lot of friends who may be trying, and medyo nakakasakit [it’s rather hurtful] when people keep asking them, ‘When are you going to have a baby?’ Maybe they just don’t want to have a baby,” she shared.
“I hope you guys don’t take this the wrong way, but I think in respect to every woman, you should stop asking when they’re going to get married, why don’t they have a baby, or when they are going to have a baby,” she added.
Her co-host, Vice Ganda, agreed with her. “Iyon ang isa sa nakasanayan na [That is among the things we have normalized that] we should put a stop [to],” he said.
