MANILA – Heart Evangelista shared in social media that her parents Reynaldo and Cecile Ongpauco were taking steps in restoring relationships with her and her husband Senator Chiz Escudero after their long withstanding rift.
Through her Instagram account, Heart revealed that her parents visited her for the first time at her home after she got married earlier this year. The Kapuso actress later on disclosed that her parents were also able to talk to her husband.
In a series of Instagram posts, Heart first shared a photo of her with her parents having a stroll in a mall in Makati City. She captioned it, ‘And then He blesses you more. Happy Sunday!’
She also posted a photo of her father in her living room. She captioned it, ‘Daddy and mom visiting me at home and the rest of the day is just… perfect.’
Later on, Heart shared a photo of four teacups in a table. She captioned it, “The happiest dinner of my life. God is amazing… My answered prayer.”
After posting several photos regarding her parents, Heart then shared a photo of her with Chiz’s two kids, Joaquin and Maria Cecilia, also at their home.
“Faith can move mountains… Love conquers all… A childlike faith and a hopeful heart is all you need… I believed. He heard my prayers and he saw my heart… This is the happiest day of my life. Delight in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Finally… buo na ang puso ko (my heart is whole again). Thank you for moving that very mountain,” the 30-year-old actress later said in a message.
To this good news, Heart’s close friends and co-stars couldn’t be any happier for the actress.
During Heart and Chiz’s wedding on February 15 at Balesin Island, Quezon province, Heart’s parents did not attend the ceremony as they disapproved of Chiz for their daughter. The actress then became emotional but hoped to mend strain relationships later on.
It can be recalled that Heart’s parents earlier claimed that Chiz was disrespectful and alcoholic. But resisting her parents, the actress continued her relationship with the senator which eventually led to marriage.
