Aside from pursuing their higher education in Canada, Gelli de Belen and Ariel Rivera’s children Julio and Joaquin are the proud owners of a biko business based in Mississauga, Ontario called Lolo Ben's Biko!
As seen in Gelli’s latest Instagram updates, the “2 Good 2 Be True” actress assisted in their sons’ booming biz of selling biko, also known as Filipino sticky rice cake, when she went to visit them in Ontario.
Nearly two weeks ago, Ariel also took to Instagram to show how he would help in making biko which is available for pre-orders in the Greater Toronto Area.
On Lolo Ben’s Biko’s official Instagram page, the celebrity couple posed happily as the “assistants” of their children’s business.
Available in original and langka flavors, the rice cakes are priced $18 and $20 respectively.
While Julio and Joaquin are based in Canada, Gelli and Ariel still reside and work in the Philippines.
It appears that Gelli has had to temporarily part ways with them earlier this week when she penned a sentimental Instagram post about saying goodbye.
“To the loves of my life... after the countless times we have had to part, saying goodbye should get easier when I leave, but I can never get used to it. Breaks my heart every single time. Knowing it will be months before I get to hug you and kiss you both again,” she captioned a photo of their family of four.
She continued, “Being away from you is probably the most challenging part of my life. But I am just so grateful for the kind of men you two are becoming. You both are the biggest blessings to your Dad and I. I cherish every wonderful moment we share, no matter how trivial or mundane. It is what I keep with me ‘til the next time we make new memories together.”
Gelli ended the post by expressing her love to the three men in her life whom she calls her “heart” and “home.”
“I love you guys, you are my heart and my home. Oo madrama ako ngayon, alam ko. I miss you guys already. And to you my dearest hubby, I will see you soon Honey. I love you to the moon and back,” she told Ariel, Julio, and Joaquin.
Gelli and Ariel have been married for over 24 years.
In the romantic-comedy series “2 Good 2 Be True,” Gelli plays Margie, the single mother of Kathryn Bernardo’s character.
