Heart Evangelista commends ‘selfless’ hubby

HEART Evangelista said she is proud of husband, Senator Francis Escudero, amid his defeat in the vice presidential bid.

In an Instagram post, the television actress said that even though many candidates decided to settle to mudslinging, her husband remained firm in taking the higher moral ground.

"Through it all you have remained true to who you are, no lies, no gimmicks, no exaggerations. While many slung mud on each other, you kept your hands clean. You stayed sober and focused on what you have done and can do for the country whole everyone else went wild chasing victor,” her caption read.

Evangelista added that Escudero proved selfless during the three-month campaign period, as he would still think of her welfare amid the pressure of the elections.

"Right before voting, he whispered 'thank you'. I smiled but really I almost cried. I love you so much darling. Cheers to a whole life together. Thank you also for always asking me how I am when you're the one sleepless and running. Thank you for being selfless and kind. You are indeed special."

The actress added that whatever is the result of the national poll, she will still be happy because she’s with Escudero.

“I will be equally happy whatever happens because I’ve got the most amazing man ever.”

In an earlier interview with Evangelista, she said that after the elections the next plan would be to get pregnant and add another member to their family.

She said her husband still has three years in the Senate.

Meanwhile, Escudero, in a press conference on Tuesday, has conceded defeat in the vice presidential race.

He thanked everyone who supporter him and running mate Senator Grace Poe.

"Naging malaking karangalan sa akin na makatrabaho lahat ng nakatrabaho at nakasama ko nitong nakaraang buwan kaugnay ng halalan na ito," he said.

As of 12:30 p.m., Tuesday, Escudero is fourth in the race with more than 4.6 million votes in the partial and unofficial result.

Camarines Sur Representative Leni Robredo is ahead with close to 13.5 million votes followed by Senator Bongbong Marcos (13.2 million) and Senator Alan Peter Cayetano (5.4 million). (Sunnex)
