MANILA, Philippines - Actress Carmina Vilarroel admitted that she almost found out about the secret wedding plans prepared by Zoren Legaspi and their children.
Villaroel and Legaspi finally tied knot on Thursday shortly after the actor-host proposed to his partner of 12 years.
Legaspi asked the help of their children Cassie and Maverick, as well ABS-CBN colleagues of the actress-host to carry out the surprise proposal and wedding ceremony at Fernbrook Garden in Alabang, Muntinlupa City.
In an interview with Bandila just hours after their wedding, Villaroel said that she was close to finding out about the actor's plan because of a message she read on microblogging site Twitter.
"Siguro mga two nights ako, kasi bihira na akong mag-Twitter, so two nights ago nag-check lang ako bago ako matulog. Basta may nagsabi na parang may wedding na magaganap by Thursday at ABS-CBN ang magko-cover. So sigurado daw na bongga at maganda kasi nga ABS-CBN. Tapos sabi ko 'ay mali ito kasi shoot namin ng commercial yon'," she said.
"Hindi ko naman ma-correct kasi hindi ko pwedeng sabihin na yun yung concept na naka-gown kami ganyan. Hindi ko pa din nakuha kasi may story board. Gusto ko siyang i-correct. Ngayon ko lang na-realize na paano kung ibinuking mo yung surprise, nakakaloka ka, sinira mo lahat ito. Ngayon di ko maisip talaga ang pangalan niya, hahanapin ko talaga, babalikan ko sa timeline. Kasi kung hindi 'hon' eh a-acting ako," Villaroel added.
The actress said that she's just happy with her special day.
"Naka-float pa din ako basta masaya lang na masaya. Happy lang picture, picture bukas ko po ito (maiisip lahat)," Villaroel said.
For Legaspi, he admitted that he got worried that the actress might find out about his secret.
"I got worried kasi sabi ko uma-acting ba ito, kasi parang. Ako parang nagkaroon ako ng doubt, kasi parang you are going with the flow the whole day. Kasi walang film camera down stairs. Kaya sabi ko sa talent kanina wala akong nakikitang camera na pang-commercial. So i-adlib mo na dito gagawin sa garden at hindi sa indoor," Legaspi said.
The actress said she can't believe that she's now finally "Mrs. Legaspi."
"Honey, Legaspi na ako talaga," Villaroel told her husband.
'Yan ang hindi ko pa na-discuss sa iyo kung kunwari medyo di ka pa sanay sa Legaspi eh Villaroel kasi doon ka naman nakilala," the actor said.
But for the actress, she said that she's been wanting to be called "Carmina Villaroel-Legaspi".
The wedding special of Carmina and Zoren dubbed as "Zoren-Carmina: Always Forever, A Wedding Like No Other" will be aired on ABS-CBN on November 24 after "Maalaala Mo Kaya."
