Melai, Jason to wed in GenSan this December-A A +A
Friday, October 25, 2013
CELEBRITY couple Melai Cantiveros and Jason Francisco are set to exchange wedding vows in December.
The two faced the entertainment press Thursday during the "Honesto" press launch at the Executive Lounge in ABS-CBN.
Melai shared they are still finalizing their entourage but confirmed that "Queen of All Media" Kris Aquino will definite be one of their godparents.
The couple said, Kris is very special to them because they grew closer when the television host tapped them to join in morning talk show "Kris TV."
Their friends from the entertainment business are also invited.
The wedding will be held in General Santos City, the hometown of Melai.
Meanwhile, the 25-year-old Cantiveros is back on television with a 4-month baby bump.
Melai said she feels much better now after surviving the first trimester of her pregnancy.
"'Yung first three months nahirapan talaga ako, ganoon pala ang paglilihi kasi nagsusuka ako, pero normal lang pala 'yun. Ngayon okay na ang pakiramdam ko. Okay na 'yung katawan ko," said Melai.
Her baby news prompted the press to clarify whether it's a planned baby or an unplanned pregnancy.
Jason, 26, said they both wanted to start a family after they got back together early this year. He also reiterated that while they were still inside the Pinoy Big Brother house, they have already talked about settling down in their mid-twenties.
"Pinaghandaan naman talaga na mabuo 'yan, three months nga ginawa e," said Jason.
"Ilang months na siyang sa bahay ko nakatira and hindi lang namin pinaalam sa lahat na nagkabalikan kami. May plano na kami and sa pag-artista ka, mas maganda na malaman na lang nila in the future. Parang same question and same answer, so ito bago and good news talaga," said Jason.
The comedian said it's a mutual decision and he would let Melai do something she doesn't like.
He said, "Hindi naman 'yan basta mo na lang didiligan at gagawin mo kung anong gusto mo. Kung ready ka na and ready na siya, okay na. 'Yung responsibilities niya din sa parents niya ay smooth na din."
Jason also shared that he already hinted the baby news when we interviewed him a couple of months back, but couldn't break the story as they were still in the first trimester of Melai's pregnancy.
"Nagpaparinig na ako nun kasi 'yung time na 'yun ay buntis na siya. Binigyan ko na kayo ng hint. Ayoko (sabihin muna) kasi baka maudlot pa at malakas na siya and makapit na 'yung (baby)," said Jason.
Melai added that since they rekindled the romance early this year, Jason changed for the better. He's more responsible now and always takes care of her needs.
She said, "Nung nagkabalikan kami naramdaman ko na talaga 'yung pag mature, part 'yun ng pagpaplano namin. Nasa calendar namin 'yun. Lagi siyang andiyan sa akin. Hindi na siya gumagala kasi sabi ko na kailangan ko talaga siya."
She was then asked to comment on the worried remarks of best friend Angelica Panganiban and her other "Banana Split" co-stars.
The comedienne said she understands their sentiment but she's a bit hurt because they don't know who Jason is in real life.
"Normal na reaction lang naman 'yun ng mga kaibigan mo pero parang nasaktan ka din dahil parang in-underestimate naman nila. 'Yung mga mangingisda nga nakakakain ng tatlong beses sa isang araw, hindi dapat ika-worry 'yun," said Melai.
Jason said he's never been close to Angelica and friends. He added that her family in the province also reacted when the actress gave out the said interview.
Added Jason, "Sabi ko tayo lahat masaya tapos ganoon. Sabi ko na hayaan na lang sila kasi hindi din nila ako kilala and hindi ako close sa kanila."
"Nakatulong naman ako sa pamilya ko, sa mga pamangkin ko and hindi nila 'yun alam. Dalawa ang bubuhayin ko ngayon. Nakaya ko nga na buhayin 'yung pamilya ko kahit wala ako dito at ilang taon pa lang ako. Gusto ko maging isang mabuting ama," he ended. (Sunnex)
