MANILA – Kim Jones said she is nothing but excited to officially become the wife of Jericho Rosales.

Jones and Rosales are set to tie the knot in a garden wedding to be held in Boracay on Thursday.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News’ Ginger Conejero last Saturday, Jones said she and Rosales have been on their toes with only just a few days until the big day.

“Honestly, I am a little tired but I'm just excited. I'm excited for it to be that day, I'm excited just to be there with friends and family. It's like that feeling na I want to be there na. I'm ready,” she said.

When asked if she and Rosales have already prepared their wedding vows, Jones said, “We are going to do our own but we are not going to read them, we are just going to say how we feel.”

The couple, however, have postponed their honeymoon as Rosales is busy working on ABS-CBN's hit series “The Legal Wife,” the actor revealed recently.

“[The wedding is] going to be very personal… It's not going to be very dramatic. It's just going to be very chill, very relax and very us. Wala[pang honeymoon], maybe later in the year. Europe sana,” she said.

Jones said she and Rosales “have agreed on the fact that children will come but it will come later.”

“Ayaw ko straight away. What I love about Echo is he's very ambitious. I am also. There's a lot of things that we want to achieve first. We want to travel together. We just want to be married couple,” she said.

Meanwhile, Jones said she is very proud of her soon-to-be husband over the success of "The Legal Wife," which is doing well in terms of ratings.

“I'm so proud of him. You know what, we don't realize how hard artists work to produce a show. So when it does so well and the fans respond so well, it's such a blessing. Echo is eternally grateful because they just work so hard,” she said.

Jones said she likes watching the series even though Rosales’ intimate scenes with Maja Salvador’s character aren’t actually her favorite.

“It's not my favorite part, but I'm okay. I super love Maja. When I visit them sa set, she's super nice. It's fine, it's part of his job. It goes with it,” she said.

Asked if she has any message for Salvador, Jones said, “I love you Maja from the bottom of my heart.”

In “The Legal Wife,” Salvador plays the role of Rosales’ character’s mistress.
