Thirty-three-year-old Carla Abellana admits that she does feel pressured when asked if she and her boyfriend, thirty-one-year-old actor Tom Rodriguez are planning to settle down any time soon.

"We're not getting any younger," says Carla in a recent interview with "'Yong mga ka-age namin or batch namin, they're all settling down, having children and building families already, so super pressure."

On the other hand, Tom has learned to take these questions as compliments. "I find it flattering kasi at least they want us to end up together. That's always a flattering thought. But I don't let it pressure me because we all have our own time to do it."

The two, however, do have plans of getting married in the future. 

"Alam naman na namin, e, we've been in a relationship for several years already. We wouldn't want to be with anybody else anymore. Why would you go into a relationship kung wala kayong long-term plans or if you don't plan on ending up together?" Shares Carla. "Malinaw na 'yon, ever since the beginning pa lang, malinaw na 'yon that we would love to spend the rest of our lives together." 

Carla and Tom have been together for five years, and have worked together in several projects including My Destiny (2014) and I Heart Davao (2017).
