From being the Big Winner of Pinoy Big Brother Double Up, we have witnessed how the “Inday Kenkay of General Santos City” turned out to become one of the remarkable stars of ABS-CBN through her impressive performances both in television and film as a promising comedienne and actress.
In 2015, we were able to see her in a different light when she joined, and later on dominated, the debut season of Your Face Sounds Familiar. That was also on that same program wherein she met and able to develop cordial bond with Karla Estrada and Jolina Magdangal-Escueta, who, unbeknownst to her, would be her co-hosts on her first-ever morning show hosting stint – Magandang Buhay.
Now that we’re celebrating Magandang Buhay’s three successful and colorful years of delivering inspiring and amusing true-to-life tales of our beloved Kapamilya celebrities through in-depth and fun interviews and occasionally taking us to different places in-and-out of the country, let’s take a look back at least three of the memorable moments of Momshie Melai Cantiveros on the award-winning program.
Melai on Magandang Buhay: "Ang forever is a choice and I choose my forever"
As Gerald Anderson and Bea Alonzo appeared on the show to promote their movie then, “How To Be Yours?” the talk on love and its complexities was not avoidable. This triggered Momshie Mels to share during the #POTD (“Pulot of the Day”) segment her disagreement on the notion of letting go of your greatest love in order to meet your destiny for she firmly believes that her greatest love and destiny are just one – he’s none other than her husband of four years Jason Francisco. She wasn’t able to hold back her emotions as she imparted a bit about the marital problems they’re going through and stated, “Ang forever is a choice and I choose my forever.”

Months after her subtle confession regarding the status of their marriage, Momshie Melai began 2017 with a bang as her Magandang Buhay family prepared a little yet posh bee-themed gender-reveal party for her and her Baby Number2! As soon as Momshie Karla and Momshie Jolina opened the big box, the inner flap revealed the words “It’s a GIRL” and pink balloons started to pop out and pink confetti was sprinkled in the studio.
On April 9 of that same year, she gave birth to a healthy baby girl who they named Stela Rosalind.

As a way of celebrating her 31st birthday this year, Momshie Melai had the amazing opportunity to take her fellow Momshie hosts and their avid viewers to her beloved hometown General Santos City, South Cotabato. During their enjoyable sojourn there, we weren’t only able to take a glimpse of the traditions, culture, and talents of the “Generals” (as what the natives are called according to Melai), but also got to know the celebrator deeper through the stories imparted by her family, relatives, and friends.
Thank you for making us laugh with your comedic deeds and wit, as well as inspiring us to be strong in whatever challenge that will come our way, Momshie Mels! More memorable moments to come!
