The love story of Camille Prats and VJ Yambao makes us want to believe in second chances.

It’s been four years since Camille’s first husband, Anthony Linsangan, passed away. They havea 7-year-old son, Nathan. VJ surprised Camille with a marriage proposal on July 18 at the Prats family’s resort, Nayomi, complete with fireworks and AVP of their pictures by top studio Nice Print Photo (NPP), which also covered the happy occasion.


With the NPP team, celeb couples like Camille and VJ are rest assured that their precious memories will be recorded for posterity.

The childhood friends, who crossed paths again two years ago, are all set to love happily ever after.


Did you ask for a sign from your late husband before accepting VJ’s proposal?

It was a surprise proposal and it would be awkward to ask for a sign. Although I did ask before. When I first met VJ, I asked [Anthony] if he was the right guy for me and Nathan. Anthony did give us a sign. Things have been going smoothly since then.

What lessons from the first marriage would be applicable now?

I learned so many things from the first one, even though it was brief. I learned to adjust, compromise and choose battles, not to make a big deal of little things.

How’s your son’s relationship with his future stepdad?

They are very close. My son adores his Tito VJ. They play games and basketball.

What excites you most about getting married again?


I want more kids. I’ve always dreamed of having a big family. I feel blessed with this second chance.

What scares you about getting hitched again?

Nothing…I am excited and happy.

Please share some of your wedding plans.

We plan to tie the knot in the first quarter of 2017. That’s how far our planning goes, for now.

Where will your honeymoon be?

We plan to visit Europe.

How has your fiancé redefined love for you?

You should pray and never lose hope in finding the right kind of love!
