Even though Adamari López wants to have a child with her husband, Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi, her doctor has recommended that she wait five years before conceiving because of the breast cancer treatment she’s undergoing.

“It will happen when God wants and when the doctors say [it’s ok]. The doctor says I have to wait five years. If I feel healthy I could stop my treatment and try it, but it would run a risk,” the 36-year-old actress told Puerto Rican newspaper El Vocero.

The Puerto Rican has had various operations and undergone chemotherapy treatments to counteract the illness. She represents a campaign that works to raise awareness about breast cancer.

López informed that her next telenovela will begin shooting between February and March of next year. Until then, she’ll take advantage of the months between October and January to spend quality time with her husband, who’ll be busy promoting his new album in 2008. “I want to attend to the most precious thing in the world, my husband. If we got married, it’s because we want to enjoy ourselves as husband and wife,” she expressed.
