MANILA – Singer-actress Zsa Zsa Padilla has been set to wed non-showbiz fiancé Conrad Onglao this year in a simple and intimate ceremony with only their children as guests.
“Kasi maraming magtatampo and ‘yung mga kamag–anak ko, uuwi pa or pupuntahan namin or magmi–meet kami somewhere. Parang masyadong complicated i–plano,” she said in an ABS-CBN News report.
(Because many may harbor ill feelings and we would have to ask my relatives to go home or we would go and meet them somewhere. It seems too complicated to plan.)
Asked where the wedding will happen, Padilla opted to stay mum if the ceremony will be held in the Philippines or in Italy as planned. She will, however, let everyone know in due time.
It can be recalled that the couple have been engaged in the previous year, with the Divine Diva sharing a photo of her ring on Instagram and captioning it, “It’s official! Thank you so much for all your warm wishes! Much love… God bless us all.”
Staying in show business
Will the Kapamilya star quit working in showbiz after their wedding? Apparently not.
“Pinag-usapan din talaga namin from the onset na I cannot stop working because I have children to take care of. Kailangan pa nila ng tulong ko kasi,” Padilla explained in a separate report.
(We also talked from the onset that I cannot stop working because I have children to take care of. They still need me.)
Onglao, for his part, has always been supportive of her career.
“I want her to be happy. If singing is what makes her happy, or acting, I said, ‘I’m just there to applaud you.’ I’m not going to take it away from her. Before I met her, she was already a very accomplished singer and actress. Why would I take that away from her?,” he said.
It can be noted that the two have previously been married. Onglao has two sons with his former wife interior designer Ivy Almario whilePadilla also has two children with Comedy King Dolphy Quizon and one with dentist Dr. Modesto Tatlonghari.
