MANILA — Baron Geisler is set to wed his partner of eight months, psychologist Jamie Marie Evangelista, the actor has confirmed.
Geisler and Evangelista have been engaged for three months and are finalizing a wedding date, he told PUSH in an exclusive interview.
They officially became a couple in September 2018.
Geisler described his fiancee as a psychologist who works in rehabilitation centers, and teaches college students. “Kinukuha siya ng mga rehab center para tumulong sa mga addict at alcoholic,” he said.
Geisler, 36, has made no secret of his struggle with alcoholism. The past decade has been tumultuous for the former teen star, who had been involved in numerous controversies, from bar brawls to alleged sexual harassment, landing him in jail more than a few times.
“She’s very patient sa akin,” he said of Evangelista. “Alam niya kung paano ako timplahin. Super happy ako kasi maalaga siya.”
“When I had nothing, wala pa ‘yung barber shop ko, nu’ng walang-wala ako, she supported me. Kasi ang buong pag-aakala ko wala na akong babalikan sa showbiz, kaya nagtayo na lang ako ng business,” he added.
Geisler was referring to Gents Barber, a barber shop he put up in Cebu, where he has been based. Currently, he is seen as a guest star in the top-rating series “Ang Probinsyano.”
Asked what motivated his decision to get married, the actor answered: “Pagod na ako sa laro, sa pag-party. Gusto ko na ring magkaroon ng sariling pamilya.”
