Two years after Vice Ganda confirmed his relationship with Ion Perez on Magpasikat 2019 on It’s Showtime, the couple actually made their union formal.
In October last year, Vice and Ion had exchanged vows in a civil ceremony in Las Vegas, the Unkabogable Star revealed in a video he posted on his YouTube channel.
The video showed clips from their Las Vegas trip last year, during which Vice had a concert tour.
The ceremony was held at The Little Vegas Chapel.
Ion told Vice during their marital rites, “Buong buo ‘yung loob ko na makasama ka…mahal na mahal kita, Tuy. “ In response, Vice said, “Mahal na mahal din kita at ang saya saya ko na ikaw ang kasama ko ngayon. “
They then showed their wedding rings and their signed certificate of commitment that sealed their union as spouses.
Vice and Ion met on It’s Showtime in September 2018 when then-27-year-old hunk model and male pageant titlist first reported for duty as the newest Kuya Escort in the Miss Q & A Intertalaktic 2019 segment of the hit noontime program. The audiences truly enjoyed their staged love triangle skits with dancer Jackie “Ate Girl” Gonzaga everyday and were thrilled as well by their playful banters and sweet gestures on-screen. Unbeknownst to us, a colorful romantic affair was already brewing between them that are now incredibly cheered for not only by their family, friends, and the LGBT community, but of their ardent shippers as well.
However, did you know that it was not actually on It’s Showtime that their paths first crossed? Avid viewers of the Unkabogable Star’s Sunday night comedy talk show Gandang Gabi Vice could possibly remember that in October 2017, Ion appeared in one of its episodes wherein he and his fellow Misters of Filipinas winners were among the audience members. The 43-year-old host-comedian’s “anak-anakan” and guest co-host “Gigil Kid” Carlo Mendoza handpicked him for an on-the-spot interview and song number.
After confirming their relationship, the couple has since been open about their relationship as they confidently talk about it. They also generously give us glimpses of their off-cam shenanigans and bonding moments through the photos of them together which they upload on their respective Instagram accounts and to which they attach cheesy captions to, just like these snaps we collated in this gallery.
