Has Heart Evangelista reconciled with her family?
MANILA, Philippines – Things seem to be looking up for actress Heart Evangelista after her engagement with Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero. That is if her Instagram posts are to be believed.
On Monday, she posted a photo of herself with her sister and mother, two days after Escudero proposed to her in Sorsogon. The photo’s caption was: “My mom and sissy @camongpauco.”
The day before, she also posted on Instagram a screenshot of her father’s text message to her: “always be happy heart love u.”
It wasn’t clear whether the text message was her dad’s reaction to Escudero’s proposal. The caption of the photo read: “To my dad… thank you for loving me the way you do… my perfect morning.”
Before Escudero proposed to Evangelista on Saturday, he showed her a text message from her father congratulating them on their engagement. The two have been a couple for over two years. Escudero is 15 years senior to the actress.
On March 2013, Evangelista’s parents held a press conference to announce their dislike for Escudero, whom they accused as being disrespectful and an alcoholic. Her parents also disapproved of the actress’ past relationships – with actor Jericho Rosales and Brazilian model Daniel Matsunaga.
Her parents’ apparent meddling with her personal life forced Evangelista to live apart from her family.
Escudero had his marriage annulled in 2012.
The forthcoming wedding came no surprise as Evangelista and Escudero have been open about their plan. The wedding date, however, has yet to be announced.
