Not much has been said about the love story of Regine Angeles and husband Van Victor Leano, but what we all know is that they finally found their forever in each other’s arms and love is definitely in the air wherever they are as seen in their Instagram snaps!
After tying the knot on January 10, 2016, the couple is now expecting their first child as the model-actress is currently seven months pregnant. They tag it as #BabyVanella, which is the combination of their names (FYI, Regine’s first name is Diorella).
The baby is said to be unexpected, as Regine had indicated that she wanted to conceive two years after their marriage for them to enjoy their life as a married couple first. However, she also revealed that her spouse wanted to be a dad after a year.
“The sweetest unexpected surprise. It was unplanned, but it was God’s plan,” she captioned one of her IG posts showing a sonogram of her womb alongside their jumpshot together with a “Bump Ahead” traffic sign.
The announcement was made prior to the premier of the afternoon drama The Better Half where she is cast as Sheryl Canlas, the bestfriend-turned-antagonist of Shaina Magdayao’s character Camille who was threatened and eventually killed by Bianca (Denise Laurel) and now appears as an evil spirit tormenting the now-delusional Bianca. In one of her posts while displaying her baby bump, she expressed her gratefulness to Van for allowing her to work in spite of her delicate condition.
Amidst their hectic schedules and grueling commitments – Regine in her showbiz commitments while Van minds his restaurant business located in Parañaque City – they are still able to find time for their dates and trips in and out of the country.
The entrepreneur was her long-time boyfriend before they got engaged in November 2014 during their vacation in El Nido, Palawan. And since the actress is a member of Iglesia Ni Cristo, he willingly converted to the religion for the sake of their relationship.
Regine rose to stardom after dominating the ABS-CBN’s Be Bench/ The Model Search in 2007 and since then appeared in strings of TV shows, while Van emerged as the winner in the Century Tuna Super Bodies 2009.
We can’t wait to see your #BabyVanella, Regine and Van!
