“We’re very excited. I’m looking forward to that and sana maging maayos lahat,” says Regine Veleasquez about the news saying that Michelle Van Eimeren, the estranged wife of her boyfriend Ogie Alcasid will visit the Philippines this year.
Last December, real-life celebrity couple Regine Velasquez and Ogie Alcasid flew to Sydney, Australia, where they spent their Christmas with the latter’s estranged wife Michelle Van Eimeren and their two daughters, Leila, 5, and Sarah, 10.
The Asia’s Songbird described the feeling as, “It was one of the most touching, nerve-wracking…”
This proves that Michelle wholeheartedly accepted Regine as the girlfriend of her daughters’ father. In fact, through a phone patch during the birthday celebration of Regine in SOP last year, Michelle publicly announced, “Gusto kong malaman ng mga tao na si Regine, family ko yun.”
Since Regine and Ogie have already visited Michelle in Australia, the next question in mind would be “When will Michelle visit the Philippines again?”
Ogie said in an interview last year, “Next year, sige. Manonood yun [ng concert ko] Yung kids ko matagal na akong hindi napapanood, e. Sa YouTube lang nila ako napapanood, e.”
The singer-songwriter was referring to his 20th anniversary concert that will happen in September this year.
What does Regine feel about this news?
In an exclusive interview with The Buzz aired yesterday, March 16, she replied, “We’re very excited. I’m looking forward to that and sana maging maayos lahat. Of course, we’ll make sure that they’ll have a great time.”
With Michelle visiting the country, Regine and Ogie make sure that this will make their respect for each other stronger.
“Hindi naman ako mawawala, e. Nandito pa rin naman ako, e,” assured Ogie. “Solid tayo, solid tayo. Forty [years old] na ako, e, so this is it, baby.”
Regine also added, “We’re doing really good. Basta we’re just gonna enjoy what we have now.”
WEDDING PLANS. In the same interview, The Buzz also asked Regine about their most awaited wedding.
However, Ogie did not have any details to give. Instead, he told The Buzz, “Sino ba namang may-ayaw nun, di ba? Alam n’yo naman, I still have to fix things.”
Regine, on the other hand, joked about her plans for her wedding. She told The Buzz in jest, “Ang gusto ko sa malayong lugar at saka yung mamahalin, mga Paris… yung hindi mo ako masusundan.”
Then, she seriously said, “We haven’t really talked about it yet but if ever we do, I’d like to have a… Usually, di ba, lahat ng babae [they want it] big? I probably am the only who wants a small wedding. I want it to my personal thing.”
