JC Santos is now married to his non-showbiz girlfriend Shyleena Herrera, and they are expecting their first child together.
In an interview with showbiz reporter Allan Diones yesterday, January 16, the actor revealed that he tied the knot with Shyleena last September. She will be giving birth to a baby girl next month. JC then couldn’t be more grateful for how blessed the past year has been for him.
“2019 is the best year for me,” he enthused. “2019 lahat, sobrang thankful ako kay Lord na lahat ng pangarap ko, lahat ng dasal ko natupad pati ‘yung sa career,” he added.
“Pero bukod doon sa career ko actually, ‘yung crush ko noong high school na na-basted ako 15 years ago, nagkita kami ulit at hindi ko na siya pinakawalan,” he revealed.
JC then recalled how he proposed to his wife after being together for a few months.
“Nagkita kami uli at hindi ko na pinakawalan. Siyempre nag-hang out kami for a few months, [then] sinabi ko na agad sa parents niya na ‘I wanna marry your daughter.’ Sinabi ko na agad sa kapatid niya,” he revealed.
“And nalaman na nila and nag-propose ako and we got married. And now we have a new beautiful girl,” he shared.
Congratulations, JC and Shyleena!
