Singer Angeline Quinto is now engaged to Nonrev Daquina, her non-showbiz partner and dad of her son Sylvio.
According to entertainment website PUSH, Angeline made the announcement during her concert in the United States.
“Espesyal ang gabing ito ngayon for me dahil nandito po sa audience ang soon-to-be mother-in-law ko. Ang nanay po ng aking fiancé ay nandyan,” PUSH quoted Angeline as saying.
She also shared Instagram stories that confirmed this news.
Angeline announced in December last year that she will soon become a mom.
“Simula nang mawala ang Mama Bob, hindi ko na alam kung para saan ako. Ano nang purpose ko sa buhay? Ano nang misyon ko sa buhay? Iyan ang lagi kong dinadasal. ‘Lord, ituro Niyo naman sa akin, para saan na po ako ngayon.’ Kasi nararamdaman ko, kahit may trabaho ako, hindi ako masaya. Totoo, hindi ako masaya. September noong nalaman ko na buntis ako,” she said in an old interview with Boy Abunda.
Meanwhile, Angeline and Nonrev also answered rumors that netizens were throwing at them.
Nonrev admitted having children from previous relationships. He has two children with his first partner and one child with his second partner, making Sylvio his fourth child.
Angeline knows about this and she even expressed willingness to meet them someday. “Ako naman, anytime talaga. Gustong gusto ko… Mas maganda yung ganun, ang ayos ayos ng lahat, tanggap ng bawat isa,” the actress said.
Their marriage is a step towards their dream to give Sylvio a complete and happy family — something that they were not able to experience.
“Ako kasi hindi ko naranasan nang matagal na buo yung family ko kasi bata pa lang ako, naghiwalay na yung parents ko. So sana tayong dalawa, hopefully maging buo tayo hanggang huli, hanggang lumaki si Sylvio, makilala niya ‘yung mga kapatid niya. Ilang beses din akong nag-try na magkaron ng buong pamilya pero hindi nagwork,” Nonrev said.
