Robi Domingo had a “bittersweet” celebration over the weekend as his grandmother passed away in the morning of Jan. 6, the day of his wedding to Maiqui Pineda.

“Bittersweet. January 6 was the happiest day of my life. My heart was filled with immense gratitude—from preps in the morning, to the ceremony, to the reception which lasted until dawn,” the TV host said on his Instagram page on Tuesday, Jan. 9.


“As I was about to leave the place, my mom was sobbing as she tried to tell me that my Lola passed away that same morning,” he recalled. “Apparently, my family didn’t tell us so that our focus was our magical day.”


Domingo reminisced his fond moments with his grandmother, whom he calls “ina,” including when she took care of him, and how he enjoyed her homemade desserts.

“Rest in peace, ina. Please look after us together with ama. Thank you, and we love you,” he added.

Domingo also expressed his gratitude to everyone who celebrated his and Pineda’s special day with them, admitting it has been a “rollercoaster ride” for the two of them.

“Our hearts are happy, but we apologize for the delay. We’ll just take a breather from all the happenings,” he wrote.

Domingo and Pineda started dating in 2018 then got engaged in 2022.

Despite Pineda being diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease in July last year, Domingo said they pushed through with their wedding plans as it gave her “something to hope for.”
