MANILA – Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero and wife Heart Evangelista are set to renew their marriage vows on their first anniversary on February 15, 2016.
Constrast to their extravagant wedding in Balesin Island Club, the couple would opt for a simple renewal of vows, followed by a family gathering in their home in Quezon City.
This time, Chiz and Heart will be joined by the actress’s parents, Reynaldo and Cecilia Ongpauco, who have not attended their wedding celebration six months ago.
“Simple lang ho na seremonya ‘yon. Kami-kami lang para may litrato kami na kapiling ang kanyang mga magulang (It’s only a simple ceremony. It’s just us so that we will have photos with her parents),” Chiz said in a Philippine Entertainment Portal report.
The couple is thankful for having fixed past rifts in their family. Chiz could attest to this through his wife’s paintings.
“It’s showing in her art… Nagpipinta si Heart, hindi lamang painting, pero sa bag na rin, sa damit (Heart paints, not just [in canvass], but also in bags, in clothes),” he said in the same report.
“It shows in her artistic side perhaps, na maganda ang lugar na kinakalagyan niya… Hindi na madilim mga painting niya. Maliwanag ‘yung mga painting niya,” he added.
(It shows in her artistic side perhaps, that she is in a better place now… Her paintings are not dark anymore. Her paintings are bright.)
It can be recalled that Heart’s parents have openly opposed to her relationship with the senator. They have even accused Chiz of brainwashing their daughter.
But on the couple’s wedding day, Mr. Ongpauco sent a heartfelt letter to Heart, saying that they will reconcile with the couple once they see that she is loved the way she deserved to be loved.
Now, all seems well with the family as Heart recently shared a photo of her with Chiz and her parents in her social media accounts.
