MANILA, Philippines -- Singer Aiza Seguerra has accepted a mother role for the first time.

In an interview on Tuesday night during a press conference for the new TV series Seguerra shared that she never thought that she will be mature enough to take a mother role.

"Be Careful With My Heart," which stars Richard Yap and Jodi Sta. Maria, will air its pilot episode on July 9 before "It's Showtime."

"Nagulat na nga lang ako may anak na ako dito. I play the role of Kute na nakakatandang kapatid ni Jodi at ako po ay isang nanay at ito po ang una kong soap na mother role na ako," Seguerra said.

"So nanay na may tattoo at kalbo. Bakit nga ba 'Kute' kasi 'kuya at ate' kaya 'Kute,'" she said.

Seguerra, who's a lesbian, said she was surprised when told about the role.

"Medyo nagulat ako noon because hindi ako na-informed na may kid. Naka-oo na ako saka 'hoy may anak ka pala.' Siyempre nagulat lang ako na sa edad kong 28, eh mother role na ako. So okay naman," she said.

Having own child

In the interview, Seguerra said she's open to have her own child.

"Why not? May matres naman ako. Sa totoo lang ako 'yung klase ng taong hindi nagbibigay ng time frame sa sarili. Kung dumating eh di dumating. Feeling ko sa tamang panahon ay malalaman ko 'yon, pero hindi ako magbibigay ng time frame. Huwag lang sanang menopause na ako saka ako maghahanap," she said.

Asked if she's also open to adopt a child, she replied: "Well why not? Pero iba din yung nanggaling sa iyo. Para masabi naman ni Lord na nagamit ko (ang matris ko)," she said.
