Proud parents Aljur Abrenica and Kylie Padilla elatedly welcome the newest “love of their lives”, bouncing baby boy Alas Joaquin, who was born last August 04.
It seems that love is indeed sweetest the second time around for the couple since after their break-up two year ago, their reconciliation late last year ensued to engagement and the young actress’ pregnancy. As they begin to take on their new roles as parents, let’s take a look back on how their romance fared in the past years.
Their romance started in 2011 while they were working together in a rival network, but it was only in November 2012 when Aljur met Kylie’s dad, action star Robin Padilla, and expressed how serious and clear his intentions are to his daughter. And it seemed that he is in favor of them.
In 2014, it appeared that rumors linking the actress to her leading man in one of her projects took a great toll on their relationship as she confirmed that they already called it quits. However, she strongly dismissed the third-party issue.
Within the two years of being apart, they were involved in other relationships. Yet, in one of his interviews, the new Kapamilya actor disclosed that they never lost touch until both realized they still have feelings for each other.
After being separated for a long time, the couple shook the internet when the hunk actor shared snaps of them together on their Japan sojourn late last year confirming that they had rekindled their romance. But it was soon revealed that they’ve been engaged and have been living together.
Since then, their Instagram news feeds have been filled with their intimate photos together underlined by heartwarming captions that everyone’s gushing over with. Until finally, on the 11th day of December 2018, they officially tied the knot!
“Masayang masaya yung puso ko,” he described his feeling after marriage. Aljur revealed that meeting Kylie changed him in so many ways. He began to dream a life that included her like starting a family. Admittedly, it has not been an easy journey for them, but he feels that it was all worth it just to be where they are now. “Kaya pala namin pinagdaanan noon kasi dito kami dadalhin,” he thought to himself after the wedding.
Congratulations, Aljur and Kylie!
