‘We will not kill this love’: Melai Cantiveros recites K-pop-themed wedding vows
Melai Cantiveros and Jason Francisco, known as Melason, renewed their vows after seven years of marriage.
Though they have taken their marriage seriously, they also showed that exchanging vows can be a light-hearted affair, as seen in their ceremony on “Magandang Buhay” last Tuesday, Dec. 8.
The comedienne, for her part, infused K-pop hits into her vows, which start at the 2-minute mark.
“Papang, always remember that I’m always here for you. Si Lord ang center ng buhay natin (The Lord is at the center of our life) and I promise to cross the ocean for you and be your hero, your strength, anything you need,” she began.
“Lahat nalampasan natin at marami pa tayong malalampasan basta kapit lang tayo kay God at walang sukuan.”
(We have gotten through everything and there is more that we will get through [and] we just have to hold on to God and not give up.)
“Now, look at you, now, look at me, how you like that?” Cantiveros said, holding back laughter as she recited lyrics from Blackpink’s “How You Like That.” “Papang, always kong ipagdarasal na (I always pray that) for you and me we will not kill this love.”
“And pananatilihin kong maging sweet sa iyo (I will stay sweet to you) like an ice cream, chillin’ chillin’ ice cream,” she said, this time quoting Blackpink and Selena Gomez’s song “Ice Cream.”
“Papang, for me you are always shining through the city with a little funk and soul and you will always be the one to light me up like a dynamite. I love you,” said Cantiveros, this time paying tribute to BTS’ “Dynamite.”
As laughter could be heard in the background, Cantiveros insisted, “Seryoso ako sa sinasabi ko (I am serious in what I am saying)!”
Francisco decided to make his message more simple, stating that he always thought of Cantiveros’ parents and that he did not want to hurt her or else they would be hurt too. He also expressed that he wanted to have more kids.
“I love you and I love your parents and our babies and soon to our more babies,” he said.
The couple’s romance blossomed while they were in 2009’s “Pinoy Big Brother.” They wed in December 2013, months after Cantiveros announced her pregnancy. After marrying in 2013 and having a child, the two announced their separation in July 2016. By September of the same year, the comedienne revealed that she was pregnant and that she and Francisco were back together. Niña V. Guno /ra
