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."
