I think I'm very happy, very fulfilled with my life right now," said the actress-host, who will turn 39 on June 24. Although she is not closing her doors to romance, Gutierrez said she feels no need to actively find a partner, pointing to her two daughters with former husband Ylmaz Bektas -- Lorin, 9, and Venice, 8 -- as her source of happiness. "Kung dumating naman si Mr. Right, eh wala namang problema na i-accept ko na kung anuman ang dumating, especially when it comes to love. I haven't had a boyfriend in two years, so kung dumating man 'yon this year, iwi-welcome ko 'yon. "But I'm not going to settle, I'm very happy with myself, just being with my kids. There's really no need to look for a man. I'm very happy on my own," she said. Off to London Aside from spending time with her daughters, Gutierrez will busy herself with her studies in King's College in London, where she will take up a short course on International Political Economy.

Clarifying her motivation to pursue the course, Gutierrez said, "Hindi ko iniisip pumasok sa pulitika. That is not in my plans at all. Siguro more of helping others and more of international relations, being an ambassador or [part of the] United Nations. Mas type ko 'yung ganoon." Gutierrez said she sees the move as a way of expanding her knowledge and skills, with the goal to "better herself" in mind. "A lot of people are happy for me, and they encourage me na ipagpatuloy ko 'yan... Siguro I just want to better myself as a person, and hindi naman talaga lahat ng mundo ko showbiz lang. "I want to expand also, be ready for the rainy days, be ready when the time comes so I'm well-equipped na kahit wala na ako sa showbiz, mabubuhay ako," she said.
