MANILA - Former sexy actress Ara Mina and her sister Cristine Reyes are both looking to walk down the aisle soon.
But given the folk belief against "sukob," which refers to two siblings getting married within the same year, Mina asked Reyes if she can get married first.
"Huwag naman AA. Paunahin mo muna ang ate," Mina appealed via "Kris TV" on Thursday, using Reyes' nickname. "Sinasabi niya sa akin, 'Ate, gusto ko na din.' Sabi ko, 'Paumanahin mo muna ako ha, relax ka lang diyan.'"
Mina, who is planning to wed boyfriend Bulacan Mayor Patrick Meneses soon, said she believes her sister won't marry her non-showbiz boyfriend this year.
"Pero sige kung gusto nilang mauna, next year ako," said Mina, who is now six months pregnant.
Last Tuesday, Reyes walked out from an interview during the premiere of her comedy film "The Gifted" with Anne Curtis and Sam Milby after reporters quizzed her about rumors that she is pregnant.
Rumors about Reyes' supposed pregnancy appeared over the weekend and have become a hot topic in gossip blogs and tabloids.
When Reyes was interviewed on "The Buzz" last Sunday, the actress confirmed that she and her boyfriend are already talking about settling down.
Reyes, 25, noted that they are already at the right age to start a family.
