Before, he was famous for being ladies’ man because of the disreputable roles he portrayed on movies and series and his romantic connections with different women to whom he admitted having 11 children.
But Jay Manalo is apparently a changed man now, based on the photos he uploads on Instagram showing his huge adoration and devotion to the one and only love of his life – Raizza.
Their relationship is highly admirable and inspirational, knowing that the seasoned actor has been very controversial ever since and has been stereotyped with a villainous image because of his kontrabida roles, yet his non-showbiz wife remained by his side and defended him against the critics. For almost a decade now, she accepted him with all her heart and has continued to pour her overwhelming love for him.
Far from his notorious characters, such as his stint as the robbery syndicate leader Victor in the primetime action-drama series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, Jay is a sweet husband and loving father to their four adorable children.
During his off from work, he is often spotted bonding with his whole family or taking them on vacations. Of course, they never forget to spend some alone time with each other through simple dates, making fun of themselves, and pigging out most of the time.
Finding “forever” in the grueling and exciting world of show business is said to be impossible, but Jay and Raizza’s love story shattered this inkling and proves that it can be, if you found your right match.
