Radiant bride-to-be Melai Cantiveros was featured on KrisTV last Friday, November 29, to talk about her pregnancy and recall how Jason Francisco proposed to her.
The comedienne is slated to wed Jason by December 9, 2013.
ON HER PREGNANCY.
On Kris TV, host Kris Aquino and young actress/singer KC Concepcion talked to Melai who is now five months pregnant with her first child.
According to Melai, she was nauseous during the first trimester of her pregnancy and she couldn’t eat much.
“Grabe, Miss Kris, whole day ka magsuka-suka. Kahit nakahiga, nahihilo ka. Kakain ka lang ng lugaw at asin. I cannot eat Miss Kris yung mga adobo…yuck!”
Kris asked, “Ilan gusto ninyo bang babies?”
Melai remarked, “Gusto niya, isang basketball team…”
ON JASON’S PROPOSAL.
When asked to recall how Jason proposed to her, Melai said that Jason insisted that she go to the bathroom of their house. It was clearly a set-up because Jason prepared something special for her there.
“Andun pala sa CR ang kanyang surprise,” said Melai with a smile.
“[Sabi niya], ‘Magmumog ka muna at samahan kita sa baba.’”
It turned out that Jason wrote a sweet message for Melai in the mirror located in their bathroom.
“Pagpunta ko sa CR, naandun na sa salamin, ‘I love you so much. You are my inspiration with all of my heart…’”
Through that message in the mirror, Jason popped the question: “Will you marry me?”
The actor then handed her a ring box but it was empty. He then promised his girlfriend, “Ito munang ibibigay ko sa ‘yo. Wala pa kasi tayong budget.”
Melai added, “Maya-maya, kinuha niya ang kamay at nilagay niya yung ring. Naiyak siya Miss Kris, dahil sa presyo at emosyon.
“Sabi niya, two gives daw to…I love you, mag-trust ka lang sa akin. Huwag ka nang magselos sa akin. Ako na lang ang magseselos.”
She then proudly showed off her engagement ring to both KC and Kris who were thrilled for their friend.
Melai also narrated that Jason’s parents have already conducted the “pamamanhikan.”
“Civil naman sila [Jason’s parents are separated from each other]. Sabay pumunta, namanhikan. Umiyak ang mama ko, na-touch. Umuwi galing Jeddah, para mamanhikan.”
Melai said that she and Jason want to tie the knot before having their baby.
“Sa probinsya, pag nabuntis ka, diretso sa huwes. Yung parents ko, sabi ko sa kanila, huwag nang patagalin maghintay ng kasal. Kung kaya naman magpakasal, go go go na.”
