IF rock singer and former “Pinoy Dream Academy” champ Yeng Constantino seems happier than she ever has been, it is because she is now engaged to her boyfriend of one year, Victor Asuncion.
“Basta it all happened suddenly,” she beamed. “Yes, I know that earlier, I said na kahit may boyfriend na ako ‘di muna ako mag-a-aasawa. Uunahin ko muna ang mga priorities ko as a singer. Na inayunan naman ni Victor.”
His proposal took her by surprise, she admitted. Before she knew it, she had said yes to his offer of marriage.
They have yet to discuss the exact date of the wedding. But it will, definitely, happen soon, those close to Yeng said. They said that they themselves could not believe Yeng’s decision.
But they agree that Victor would make a good husband for Yeng. And she, a good wife to him.
The two belong to the same Christian Church in Greenhills, where Victor serves as worship director.
Yeng, 25, has her own line of electric and acoustic guitars which she has named Yeng Signature Guitar. It is sold in Singapore, specifically in the school Academy of Rock (ADR), which has branches in Malaysia and the Philippines.
Did we hear it right that the song which she has recorded with Singaporean rapper Sheikh Haikel is selling like hotcakes in Singapore?
Another newly-engaged celebrity is Denise Laurel.
Denise no longer makes secret the fact that she is deeply in love with cager Solomon “Sol” Mercado. Their relationship is more than a year old.
What impresses the actress is that Sol has accepted her being a single mom of a two-year-old boy and he, in fact, treats the boy as though he were his own.
Career-wise, Denise said she is glad she still is in demand. Though the series “Annaliza,” topbilled by Andrea Brillante, will end in two weeks, she has heard that ABS-CBN is preparing a new project for her.
Denise’s movie, “Third Eye,” produced by Regal Entertainment and co-starring her with Carla Abellana, Alex Medina, Ejay Falcon and Camille Prats, is still showing nationwide.
James Yap is grateful to former wife, Kris Aquino, for the agreement that allows him more time with their son Bimby.
Kris now gives him the permission to have Bimby over every Friday. And the dad is happy with the arrangement.
Everytime the two of them are together, said James, he cannot describe his happiness. “Halata rin kasi na sabik din siya sa akin,” he related.
Bimby will turn seven in April. But James has no idea what Kris has planned for their son’s coming birthday.
“Pero, ang tiyak ko, ise-celebrate ko rin ang kanyang kaarawan na magkasama kami,” said James.
He also stated that he is happy Kris is now happily in love. Just like him, he admitted.
Although, he has not discussed marriage with girlfriend Michaella Gazzolla, he is sure they’ll end up together.
And this early, he believes that she will be a good stepmom to Bimby.
“Mabait kasi siya,” James stated.
Looks like Kris’ followers can expect more big news from her. First, of course, is her announcement about the guy she is reportedly dating. And are we not all eager to know his identity?
One thing for sure, we were told that the new man in Kris’ life is a Filipino. Her previous suitor, the one who abruptly stopped paying court to her, was a foreigner.
Regarding her plan for a political career, she’s denied that she will be the running mate of DILG Secretary Mar Roxas, who might run for president in 2016.
Meanwhile, she is still busy with her two shows, “Kris TV” and “Aquino and Abunda,” which are doing well in the ratings.
