After longtime partner Zoren Legaspi revealed plans to propose marriage, Carmina Villarroel said she and the father of her twins Mavvy and Cassy hope to get married this year.
“I think this is the right year, so, hopefully, God willing,” Carmina said in an interview on “The Buzz” on Sunday, August 19.
She added that they want a simple wedding, with only members of the family as guests.
“May naiisip na ako, pero ayoko nang malaki. Unang-una, mahiyain kaming dalawa. Hindi man halata, pero mahiyain kami. We wanted it to be really, really simple. Kung puwedeng family, family lang talaga.”
Zoren’s gesture, which he planned together with the twins, touched Carmina.
“Si Zoren kasi magaling talaga sa mga ganyan. Mahilig siya sa sorpresa. Sobra na akong nata-touch. Hindi man nangyari yung sa cherry blossom, okay lang, at least napag-isipan niya. Alam mo yung inabala niya, somehow, hindi nga lang nag-work yung credit card.”
In a “Showbiz Inside Report” interview, Zoren shared that he wanted to propose to Carmina under Japan’s cherry blossom trees. But he failed to buy a wedding ring because his credit card wasn’t activated.
How will marriage change their 14-year relationship?
“Ang gagawin ko lang, ipagpapatuloy ko lang kung paano ako. Kasi tumagal naman kami ng 14 years kung ano kaming dalawa. Kung meron man, siguro mas magiging understanding, quiet,” Carmina replied.
Marriage, she added can make their relationship better. Carmina feels happy the twins are very much involved and excited about their wedding.
“Maganda rin yung nangyari kasi parang nagiging parte sila kung anuman yung pagpaplano, kung anuman ang excitement na nararamdaman namin as a family rin. Kaya lahat ng ito, bonding ito, lahat ito as a family.”
As for having another child after the wedding, the TV host-actress added that they leave it up to God.
“Minsan parang gusto namin. Minsan naman, parang okay na kami sa twins. So, bahala na si God kung gusto pa niyang humabol-habol pa, okay ako.”
As for her ex-husband Rustom Padilla (now BB Gandanghari), Carmina said she doesn’t need to inform him about the wedding plans since they are already officially annulled.
