Iza Calzado is one of the most admired Kapamilya actresses who has starred in hit teleseryes and graced magazine covers through the years. Most recently, she has taken on the role of the first Darna in the newest primetime series Mars Ravelo’s Darna. Although, she admitted that there was a point when she hated seeing her blemishes in photos. But she later on realized that it was somewhat akin to denouncing her own body and she finally learned to look at her flaws in a neutral perspective.
On the topic of having a baby, Iza had this to say in this 2019 Tonight with Boy Abunda interview, “This is my body and these are my choices, so you have to respect it. I’m still working on a lot of things but I think I’m getting there, hopefully, by end of next year.” The talented actress confirmed that she already had her eggs frozen just to be secured because she knows she’s “not getting any younger”.
Fast forward to August 2022, just in time for her 40th birthday and 20th anniversary in showbiz, Iza announced that she and Ben are finally expecting their first child together.
Looking back on their first year as a married couple, Iza shared that nothing much changed. They were still the same couple who value their independence. They can go on a day without checking on each other’s whereabouts yet still feel secure and loved. Iza understands that her husband is a busy man but if given the chance, she would like to invite Ben to a honeymoon in Italy or South Africa.
Iza then boldly answered Boy Abunda’s daring questions in the Fast Talk Challenge. She said Ben’s mind is the sexiest part of his body and she thinks her husband can’t get enough of her face. She described herself as the aggressive kisser while Ben as the gentler one. If there is one thing better than sex, Iza believes it would be none other than love.
