MANILA - Actor Jericho Rosales said he and his future wife, Kim Jones, agreed to postpone their honeymoon as he is set to shoot more scenes for the hit ABS-CBN series "The Legal Wife."

In an interview with on Thursday, Rosales said taping for "The Legal Wife" will continue in May.

"We are still taping in May. In fact, pinush namin ni Kim 'yung honeymoon namin because we both said na sige, mag-give way muna sa work. It's a bit frustrating on my side kasi hindi namin maiiwasan 'yung nangyaring problema, but she was very understanding," said Rosales, who plays the role of Adrian in the series.

Rosales made the statement following rumors that they are wrapping up the series to give way to his wedding in Boracay on May 1.

"In fact, the production sent her flowers for saying yes, for offering to postpone our honeymoon. After the wedding, we go back to Manila, settle for a few days, then I go back to taping na rin. Then by June, we will take off," he said.

Rosales said "The Legal Wife" was supposed to end two to three months ago, but taping for the series was delayed due to a number of challenges.

"Nasa ano kami talaga, 'yung season namin, swak kami sa season. Unfortunately, we were supposed to air months and months ago. 'Yung Malaysian soap na ginawa ko ay nasabay dito. Things had to be pushed, so many things happened. 'Yung Yolanda, some internal issues, problems. May mga natapon na kaming material kasi biglang naging for airing kami. We shoot sequences today na it will be aired tonight, kunyari. So nagkasabay.

"Tapos 'yung wedding namin ni Kim, hindi mo naman pwedeng i-move 'yon. Everything was ang peg sana months before. 'The Legal Wife' was supposed to end siguro mga two or three months ago, so na-delay lahat. 'Yung show namin sa Malaysia nag-domino effect, na-delay din, so kinailangan kong magsabay ng dalawang soap, which I don't usually do. So ang life ko has been hotel, airport, set. Bihirang-bihira ako mag-stop sa bahay. That was for four months," Rosales explained.

Despite this, Rosales said he is thankful for all the blessings he has received and is looking forward to tying the knot with Jones next week.
