Vice Ganda surprised fans in time for Valentine’s as he revealed his Las Vegas “wedding” with boyfriend Ion Perez which happened in October last year.
Vice Ganda and Perez had a wedding commitment ceremony in The Little Vegas Chapel, where they vowed to “commit themselves” to each other, as seen in a vlog on the comedian’s YouTube channel yesterday, Feb. 13. According to the official site of The Little Vegas Chapel, such commitment ceremonies are “pretend” weddings that do not require legal paperwork, and where the couple can only be declared as partners or a committed couple, instead of being pronounced as husband and wife.
“Buong-buo ‘yung loob ko na makasama ka. Wala akong masabi basta mahal na mahal kita, Tuy. I love you,” Perez said.
(I am decided that I want to be with you. I have no words to say but I love you, Tuy. I love you.)
Vice Ganda, for his part, expressed his love to Perez and promised that he will always be one of his inspirations and reasons to live.
“Ang saya-saya ko na ikaw ‘yung kasama ko ngayon, ikaw ‘yung kasama ko kahapon at ikaw ‘yung alam kong makakasama ko pa rin bukas at sa mga susunod pang mga araw,” he said. “I promise na mag-iipon pa ako ng maraming-marami pang pagmamahal sa puso ko para makaya ko pang mahalin ‘yung sarili ko, makaya ko pang mahalin ka at ‘yung mga mahal natin sa buhay.”
(I’m so happy that you’re the one I’m with now, the one I’m with yesterday and the one I know I will still be with tomorrow and the coming days. I promise that I will save up more love in my heart so I can continue to love myself, love you and our loved ones.)
“Isa ka sa pag-aalayan ko ng mga magagandang bagay na mangyayari sa buhay ko. You’ll be one of the best reasons for all of my achievements and I promise na isa ka sa magiging dahilan kung bakit gusto ko pang mabuhay ulit bukas at sa mga susunod na araw,” Vice Ganda added.
(You’re one of those who I’ll be offering the good things in my life to. You’ll be one of the best reasons for all of my achievements and I promise that you’ll always be one of the reasons why I’d want to live tomorrow and in the days to come.)
The couple can be seen overjoyed while signing their certificate of commitment after the ceremony.
Vice Ganda and Perez have been together for three years now after revealing in 2019 that they have already been in a relationship for a year. The two also recently went on an Amanpulo trip where they welcomed the New Year with their friends and family. JB
