Pops celebrates birthday with Jomari in Bangkok

Pops Fernandez and boyfriend Jomari Yllana flew to Bangkok to celebrate the Concert Queen's birthday.

Pops Fernandez confirmed reports that she spent her 40th birthday with actor Jomari Yllana.

After her much-publicized separation from former husband Martin Nievera, the concert queen has chosen to become very quiet, again, about her personal life.

In an S-Files taped interview last December 24, Pops said: "Very private ako when it comes to my personal life. It's less complicated ‘pag walang masyadong nakakaalam. I'm wise enough to get to know a person and to know also if it's gonna work."

Pops is not bothered at all by talk that she and Jomari hardly spend time with each other. She said:"Importante yung trabaho ko at siyempre yung pag-alaga sa mga anak namin. Yung kids ko at work ko...Yun nga gusto ko e, he knows exactly what I do. Hindi naman ako nakakarinig ng mga angal-angal."

When asked about Jomari's Cristmas gift to her, Pops simply replied:"Secret." (Chuckles)

Pops is currently busy promoting ZsaZsa Zaturnnah Ze Moveeh, where she played Queen Femina, the archenemy of ZsaZsa Padilla's character.

In a separate interview by S-Files at the Metro Manila Film Festival parade, Pops said: "Ang saya kasi lahat ng tao excited na excited sila. I'm very flattered. For a change, para maiba naman. Marami ngang nagsabi na hindi nila ine-expect na ganun yung character ko. Definitely, ibang Pops Fernandez [ang] makikita nila kay Queen Femina."

At forty, Pops is now more self-assured: "Nung bata ako, I was too scared to think for myself. I was too sheltered with my mom. Nag-asawa ako kaagad. Mas confident [na] ako about certain things in my life. Mas na-eenjoy ko siya ngayon.

"I wanna live each day to the fullest. Ayoko na yung nape-pressure ko yung sarili ko. I don't want to expect things. If it happens, then it happens and no regrets."

Indeed, "life begins at forty" rings true for the concert queen.
