They are indeed one of the showbiz couples who have the most colorful and cutest love story.
Although the beginning of their relationship was rough and controversial, Ogie Alcasid and Regine Velasquez turned out to be our ultimate #CoupleGoals at the present as they become sweeter and stronger as time goes by.
It was in 2003 when the news of their secret relationship spread like wildfire among various media platforms. After keeping mum about it, they finally brought their romance out in the open through the singer-actor’s “big revelation” in a local showbiz magazine in June 2007.
In one of his television interviews, Ogie disclosed that their connection actually started when he was just a budding singer and his wife was already one of the revered stars in the industry.
They met in the rehearsals of one of Dingdong Avanzado’s concert where he was a front act and Regine was a guest. He was completely mesmerized upon seeing her, since aside from being an exceptional performer, she is unmistakably gorgeous as well. They dated for quite some time, which made him fall in love with her deeper as he discovered her genuine personality off-the-stage.
However, their relationship didn’t push through as they tread on different paths – with Ogie building a family with Australian beauty queen Michelle van Eimeren and Regine continuously soaring in the local entertainment scene.
His marriage with Michelle lasted for more than a decade and simultaneously, his impeded friendship with the singer got rekindled. They became each other’s best friend and most favorite workmate, with the Home Sweetie Home star and Your Face Sounds Familiar judge composing songs for her, which includes the all-time favorite karaoke and singing contest piece “Pangarap Ko Ang Ibigin Ka”.
In his most recent guesting in Magandang Buhay, he revealed that the aforementioned song was an ode to Regine through which he was able to express his deepest admiration for her.
Furthermore, Ogie never had a shortage of poignant words for his “Baba”, such as one of his endearing posts on Instagram: “My wife, my anchor, my love, my biggest supporter, and my favorite singing partner (especially because she’s better than me). I love you more than the words can ever describe. The concert would be incomplete without you. Thank you for loving me. It’s more than I can even ask for.”
They tied the knot in December 22, 2010 at a beach resort in Nasugbu, Batangas, and are now parents to their adorable unico hijo Nate and their pet dog Chanel.
Now, they are going stronger and sweeter for almost eight years as attested by their lovely snaps in this gallery.
