AIKO MELENDEZ – The actress said that that she’s open to the idea of having a child with her boyfriend, Zambales Representative Jay Khonghun.
The actress has two children from her previous marriages – Andre Yllana is Aiko’s son with ex-husband Jomari Yllana, while Marthena is Aiko’s daughter with ex-husband Martin Jickain.
Despite being a working mom, the actress has managed to be hands-on with her children and to keep a close relationship with them.
Aiko is currently in a relationship with her boyfriend Zambales Representative Jay Khonghun. PUSH reported that Aiko and Jay have been together for a number of years already and the actress said that she’s open to the idea of having a child with him.
She also shared that she has been contemplating on freezing her eggs.

“I still want to get married, of course,” she said. “But I don’t want to be in a wedding gown at 50.”
As for her ex-husband Jomari Yllana finding love the 2nd time around with Abby Viduya, the actress only has good wishes for the couple. Based on a report, Aiko’s only request is that Jomari makes sure that he doesn’t forget his responsibilities as a father to his children as he moves forward with his life.
Aiko and Jomari tied the knot in 2000 and the marriage was annulled four years after.
