In Salonga's Instagram post, she said "Finally, I was given permission to post this!!! I was asked by Tim and Javi to be a witness at their wedding which would take place Christmas Day 2017, and I said yes. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Tim this happy. Congratulations to you both!!!"

According to Pardo, they planned the special moment together, and are having so much fun and creating new memories.
