Wedding guests included the couple’s family and friends, “PBB” housemates, Star Dreamers and their two-year-old son.
Talao, “Ang Trans Mama ng Lucena,” thanked Ibañez for accepting her for who she is: “Sa bawat araw, linggo at buwan na lumilipas, tinrato mo ako bilang isang tunay na babae na sobrang nagpakilig talaga sa akin.”
(You treated me like a real woman all the time, which really made me gush.
She further said, “Nagpapasalamat ako sa Panginoon dahil hindi Niya tayo binigo at dumating sa buhay natin ang pinakamalaking blessing ng dumating, si baby Eros. Kahit maraming taong mapanghusga sa paligid natin, hindi natin pinansin ‘yun kasi ang importante alam nating nagmamahalan tayo.”
(I thank the Lord because he did not fail us and now he have us baby Eros. Even though we were judged by many people around us, we did not mind them because the important thing is we love each other.)
Ibañez, on the other hand, vowed: “I will be the best wife or husband, or whatever you want to call me, but one thing is for sure, I will be your best friend and partner forever.”
The couple also got engaged inside the “PBB” house last week. They have been in a relationship for four years before tying the knot./gsg
