Ayon sa Kapamilya singer na si Gary Valenciano, sa tingin niya ay hindi pa handa ang anak na si Gab nang magpakasal ito sa blogger-model na si Tricia Centenera.
Sa panayam sa kanya ni Karen Davila sa Headstart ng ANC kahapon, February 10, sinabi ni Gary na maaaring kaya nagpakasal si Gab dahil noong panahon na yun ay unti-unti na ring nagse-settle down ang mga kaibigan niya, kabilang na ang kapatid na si Paolo Valenciano.
Saad ni Gary, "I had to apologize to him because there were times that I felt even before they got married that perhaps, Gab was trying to keep up with the Joneses.
“Because Jericho Rosales got married, other friends of Paolo got married, Paolo got married, and now Gab was left behind.
"So when they finally did get married, even before that, I would look at my son Gabriel all the time and just watch him.”
Ayon pa sa 52-year-old singer, ipinagdasal niya nang mabuti ang kanyang anak.
Dagdag niya, “And I have to trust because he seems to know exactly what he wants. So that's when prayer really became so much a part of my life.
“As in a different kind of prayer, which was, 'Lord, you just have to guide my son and touch his heart.”
Pagbabahagi din ni Gary, matindi raw talaga ang pinagdaanan nina Gab at Tricia.
"Gab and Tricia have both been through so, so much. I mean, many people, it would drive them crazy."
Ayon pa kay Gary, ang asawa niyang si Angeli Pangilinan daw ang mas kumausap kay Gab nang nagkakaroon na ng problema ang pagsasama nila ni Tricia.
Kuwento ni Gary, “Angeli spoke to him more about the marriage more than I did.
“Gab always came to me as like an escape. Parang I don’t wanna talk about that first hand but here are my plans, here are my this and that.
“But I would always tell him that, ‘Gab, this woman does love you and I believed you also love her.’
“’But, dad, you know...’ Okay, I’m just letting you know that because in time you’re gonna have to face this, and you gotta have to face this with her and you gotta have to make certain decisions and you’re gonna have to work things out.
“Not just with her but with all your personal decisions and the effects of that.
“And so far, you know, with Gab, he’s been kinda keeping his feet on the ground.”
Tatlong beses nagpakasal sina Gab at Tricia. Una ay noong 2014 sa U.S.
Pagkatapos ay ikinasal sila ng dalawang beses dito sa Pilipinas noong 2015; una sa Tagaytay noong March 27 at pangalawa sa Boracay noong March 31.
Naibalita naman sa PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) noong September 2016 na hiwalay na ang dalawa at diumano’y pera at pagtataksil ang naging dahilan ng kanilang hiwalayan.
Sinabi rin naman ni Tricia na humingi na ng tawad si Gab at ang mga magulang ng babaeng naiugnay sa kanyang asawa.
