MANILA (UPDATED) - Singer Kean Cipriano, one of the finalists of the second season of "Your Face Sounds Familiar," marked the New Year by sharing on his Instagram account that he has tied the knot with actress Chynna Ortaleza.
On his own page, the 28-year-old Cipriano posted a photo of him and Ortaleza wearing their wedding rings. The caption included a famous Biblical quote about love. He also wrote: "Our love and gratitude to our Cipriano and Ortaleza Families! Happy new year!! God bless you all!"
Ortaleza, likewise, shared the same photo and quote on her account. She also began using Ortaleza-Cipriano as her surname for her profile.
According to a report from entertainment website Pep, Cipriano and Ortaleza exchanged vows in a civil ceremony weeks before the New Year. The couple, however, has plans for a church wedding.
Cipriano has known Ortaleza since 2008. They met while filming a television show for another network. In an interview on "Tonight with Boy Abunda" last October 2015, Cipriano confirmed his "young" relationship with Ortaleza.
He said: "She's the most beautiful girl I've seen in my life. ...She's the future. I'm the happiest person now. I'm the happiest person alive. Being with your best friend in the whole world."
"Wala nang mas magandang pakiramdam than to spend time with the person that you think that you can be silent with, be loud with, everything," he added.
