For those who do not know, Kris Bernal lived all her life with her mom.

That is why it is no surprise that the actress is having trouble processing even the thought of living with her mother for a family of her own.

On Sunday, Kris wrote her thoughts on separation anxiety (sepanx) Instagram: “I am 31 going on 32 and have lived with my mom, ALL MY LIFE! I’ve never experienced or tried living at a condo or any place, without my mom, EVER!

“When I get married, I know I would have to move out of my family home and establish a household of my own. Just thinking about it makes me emotional. So many emotions I feel about the prospect of moving out – sepanx over leaving my mom and brother, anxiety about the future, fear of the unknown, uncertainty over my decision making. Omg! Am I ready? I am so used to waking up with my mom around – being helped, assisted, guided every step, every decision I make! I’ve been spoiled!

Kris ended it with the question: “To those who had the same dilemma, how did you overcome it?”

As of writing, Kris and her boyfriend, Chef Perry Choi haven’t announced an exact date for their wedding  but the two have been engaged for over a year now and are very stable in their relationship as seen on social media posts.
