Hidilyn Diaz decided to include Judy Ann Santos, Iza Calzado, and Angel Locsin in the entourage for her wedding with her fiancé-coach Julius Naranjo on July 26.
On July 15, the Olympic gold medalist confirmed that the veteran actresses will be her wedding guests during the episode of “Level Up Exclusives” hosted by her manager Noel Ferrer.
Judy Ann, together with her husband Ryan Agoncillo, will be a principal sponsor in the forthcoming nuptials to be held in Baguio.
Angel has been selected as Hidilyn’s matron of honor while Iza is set to be a bridesmaid.
The Pinay weightlifting champion later explained why she chose them to play a significant part on their big day.
“We want the people present in our wedding to be those who will serve as our inspirations as we go through our marriage. These are our life pegs, people we hope to be able to consult if ever Julius and I encounter problems as a married couple,” she said.
Judy Ann and Ryan just celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary last April. They have three children together: Yohan, Lucho and Luna.
Coincidentally, Angel and her husband Neil Arce will be celebrating their first wedding anniversary on Hidilyn and Julius’ wedding day.
Meanwhile, Iza has been married to British businessman Ben Wintle since December 2018.
Hidilyn and Julius are set to tie the knot at the Philippine Military Academy in Baguio City, on the first anniversary of the Pinay history-maker bagging the Philippines' first ever Olympic gold medal.
