No further details on Concio’s wake and cause of death have been disclosed to the public as of this writing.
In a March 2022 interview with Philippine Daily Inquirer, Santos opened up about her marriage with Concio, describing it as a major life decision that she deemed “all worth it.”
“When our engagement was announced, a lot of not-so-kind comments came out, but I’ve never looked back. I became the person that I am because of my husband. I learned to appreciate myself and to be kinder to myself because he accepted me, warts and all,” said Santos, who has a 24-year age gap with Concio.
“I learned the meaning of unconditional love because of my husband. Yes, I’ve lived a full life—an imperfect one, but a full life, nevertheless. I can say it’s such a blessing,” she underscored.
Santos and Concio have two sons together, namely Francis and Martin. /ra
