Many ask when Iza Calzado will get pregnant after tying the knots with her husband Ben Wintle a year ago. People are anxious to know since some of her fellow married actresses are already “infanticipating” like Solenn Heussaff, Max Collins, and Anne Curtis.
To this, the beauteous Kapamilya avers, “I don’t see it coming this 2020. Perhaps, by 2021 in God’s grace!”
According to the talented star, there are reasons behind this decision. She is postponing any baby plans to the year after next due to her work commitments. She said she’s still committed to doing various projects.
“Ben’s sister is also getting married. We really have to move my pregnancy to a later stage. I already received word that finally, cameras will soon start grinding for my next film under Star Cinema. This early, I’m so excited. Apart from that, I still have another film to shoot. So, I’ll let all these pass first before I would concentrate on my own pregnancy,” she adds.
Iza and Ben are married for more than a year now. They exchanged “I do’s” on Dec. 19, 2018. It can be remembered that it was a solemn beach wedding at the Club Paradise in Coron, Palawan.
In line with the celebration of their first year together as husband and wife, the highly-competent actress posted a heart-warming message on Instagram which read:
“A year in and I am more in love with you than ever. Through life’s ups and downs, through my crazy tantrums, you have stayed by my side. Thank you for being my partner in life and for accepting me for who I am while encouraging and supporting me to bloom into the best version of myself.”
“May we always remember this moment when God made His presence and blessing felt by giving us the most beautiful day and lighting ever. As we said on that day, together we are unbreakable. Happy Anniversary, my love. Here’s to the first of many,” the post continues.
As she looks back to the past year, Iza reveals she has learned to take care of herself more. She says she’s I’m still learning.
“I mean, I get tired, I push myself, my body too hard and then it breaks down. So I think, it’s one of the biggest lessons that 2019 has taught me.”
The past year had been good to the amiable actress.
“Definitely, I’ve many blessings to thank for in 2019! Of course, there’s the list of movies which I did. It started with Pandanggo sa Hukay, then Culion, which was an entry to the recently-concluded MMFF. I also finished a project opposite Alfred Vargas and Shaina Magdayao which is to be shown this 2020.
“I also did an iWant series which is about to be shown soon. I also got busy with She Talks Asia and a grassroots program with postpartum mothers. I’m also very happy that my loved ones and I were all in excellent health in 2019. It was indeed a fruitful year for me,” ends Iza.

Rayver Cruz assures that there’s no awkwardness between him and Matteo Guidicelli. In fact, he even congratulated the latter for his one-year-old engagement to Sarah Geronimo. As everyone knows, Rayver is Sarah’s former boyfriend.
“For sure, I’ll get invited to their wedding. And when Matt invites me, I will attend,” says Rayver.
There’s no problem if it happens that he is Sarah’s former flame.
“It’s already a thing of the past. We were both very young then. Matt and I don’t feel awkward whatsoever. You can ask him. We’re friends for a long time already.”
The actor has not seen the couple together or bumped into them in public. But whenever he sees Sarah, they say hi to each other talk casually.
