Vina Morales when asked if she would get married someday: ‘That’s what I’ve been praying for’
Vina Morales admitted that she is still hoping to get married someday, although she stressed that she is currently “taking it easy” when it comes to having a romantic relationship.
During her “Fast Talk with Boy Abunda” interview, the actress-singer opened up about her sentiment on marriage after show host Abunda asked, “Ngayon ba sa buhay mo, naniniwala ka pa sa kasal?” (With your life now, do you still believe in marriage?)
“Wow! What a question. Dadating ba ako d’yan?—’yan ang tanong (Will I come to that point?—that’s the question),” Morales responded, chuckling.
Abunda reiterated the question the actress mentioned and asked, “Anong sagot do’n?” (What’s your answer on that?)
“That’s what I’ve been praying for. That’s in my prayer,” Morales admitted. “At kung mangyari ‘yon (If it happens), [it’s another check on my] bucket list.”
“But for now, I’m just taking it easy. In God’s time; in God’s perfect time,” she added. “I always believe that there’s someone out there for me—the right one. Ayoko nang ipilit.” (I don’t want to force it anymore.)
Morales then underscored that she still believes in marriage and that she considers such union as “God’s blessing.”
When asked what love advice she would give to her daughter Ceana, Morales initially laughed it off and quipped that she might not be the “best person” to advise her child.
“But I will be there to guide her whatever decision she has. Syempre—’wag naman sana magkakamali—’yung mga mistakes ko sa buhay, hindi mangyari sa buhay niya,” Morales said. “‘Yung mga decision ko sa buhay, sana in a better way [‘yung sa kanya] so that she will have a better life.”
(I hope she won’t be mistaken and I hope she will not commit the mistakes that I did in my life. I hope she will make better decisions than mine so that she will have a better life.)
Morales shares Ceana with her former boyfriend, businessman Cedric Lee. The pair broke up in 2009.
Last November, Morales was speculated to be dating after she went on a vacation with one Andrew Kovalcin in Boracay. The actress gave a glimpse of their trip through Instagram posts, but it appears she has taken them down from her page.
Prior to the dating speculations, Morales’ last known relationship was with her French ex-boyfriend Marc Lambert. They broke up in 2017. /ra
