According to the 35-year-old actress, her condition is something she wants to talk more about in the future. "I know a lot of women who have it. It’s quite common but not a lot of people talk about it. That’s something I want to talk about in-depth later on in the future because I don’t think right now is the time. Wala pa ako masyadong information about it."

KC was last seen in the 2013 movie Boy Golden: Shoot to Kill. She also became the first Pinay ambassador of the Japanese beauty brand Shiseido in 2019.
