Kitang-kita ang excitement sa future husband at ama ng dinadala ni Inah Revilla na si Vince del Rosario every time na tinatanong siya sa nalalapit na kasal nila ng anak nina Ramon "Bong" Revila at Lani Mercado.
Nakausap ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Vince sa grand opening ng Fely J's Kitchen sa Greenbelt 5, Makati, kagabi, May 14. Co-owner ng naturang restaurant ang stepmother niya na si Mrs. Trisha Braun-del Rosario. Very accommodating naman si Vince sa media, tulad ng kanyang ama niyang si Mr. Jorge del Rosario.
Hindi naman lingid kay Vince na may tensiyong naganap between his father and his future father-in-law nang biglaang mabuntis ni Vince ang 18-year-old pa lamang na si Inah.
"We were affected, of course. But yesterday [May 13], they actually talked about it and they talked a little bit more and little bit more. So hopefully, things have worked out a little bit better. The tension has lessened a little bit more. So, that's okay and both of our families are in good terms," saad ni Vince.
WEDDING GIFT. Ayon sa ama ni Vince, in a separate interview with PEP, nagbigay siya sa anak ng certain amount of money para sa kasal nila ni Inah. Malaking halaga ba ang hiningi ni Vince sa daddy niya?
"Oh, just enough money so that we will have a nice wedding," nakangiting sagot niya. "Of course, since she [Inah] is the girl, I wanted her to have the wedding she wanted especially since she's very young. I know that girls always dream about a perfect wedding. Of course, as my wife, I wanted her to have that because it's only once that it will happen to her life."
Aabot ba ng P10 million ang gastos nila sa kasal?
"Ah, no, no. The wedding is not more than that. The condo he gave us is around P10 million."
What about the wedding?
"It's around P2.5 million," sagot niya.
Masasabi ba ni Vince na dream wedding din ito para sa kanya?
"Yeah, actually. For me I just wanted a small wedding. But this is good. I'm very happy."
NOT CHILDHOOD SWEETHEARTS. Napag-alaman namin sa ama ni Vince na hindi pala sila childhood sweethearts ni Inah, gaya ng unang napabalita.
"Opo, I only came here [in the Philippines] about a year and a half ago. We met through our families."
Bakit lumabas na childhood sweethearts sila ni Inah?
"Oh, that I don't know. I'm not really sure," sagot niya. "I grew up in the Staes with my mom. But I was born here. But I stayed in the States most of my life, actually. I come here once in a while. But now, I may not go to the States for a long time."
When was the first time na nagkita sila ni Inah?
"A year and a half ago when I came home, before her debut."
RIFT BETWEEN TWO FATHERS. Hindi ba siya worried sa heart problem ng daddy niya, lalo pa't lumalabas ang kung anu-anong isyu tungkol sa kanilang pamilya?
"I just wanted him to get better. Make sure that nothing happens to his heart. I know that this wedding is really stressful. So as much as possible, I don't want him to have it. So I just want him to be healthy."
Ano ang reaksiyon niya na nagkaroon ng lamat ang friendship ng dad niya at ni Senator Revilla dahil sa kanila ni Inah?
"Yeah, there's a little bit... of course. She's the girl and she's the first one in the family to get married, so that is really hard for them."
Tumanggi naman si Vince na magbigay ng iba pang impormasyon about his personal life.
"The wedding is okay for me to talk about. But, of course, I'm not really showbiz so I'm not really used to all of these. But I'd like to keep that private."
FUTURE DAD. Excited na ba si Vince to become a fqther?
"I am very excited to be a father. I always wanted to be a father. I always knew that when I have a kid, the kid will always come first in my life. Even my wife, of course, my wife will always come first before anything else, and now I will try my best to support [my child] and give as much love as possible."
Hindi raw inaasahan ni Vince na magiging ama siya ng ganito kaaga. "But of course, it's there and I have to accept it with open arms," sabi ng 24-year-old Mapua student.
Kung hindi ba niya nabuntis agad si Inah, hindi pa sila magpapakasal?
"We wanted to, of course," sagot ni Vince. "But we love each other so much, so it's not only just because of the baby that we're getting married. Of course, we're facing it around God, so yeah."
What does he wish about their wedding?
"Something that will last. Me and Inah have a different kind of relationship. I've never really experienced it before. This is my first time...like I love her. And I've never really loved a person as much that I have decided to get married. When I decided to marry Inah, I never had any doubt," saad ni Vince.
