MAYNILA -- Actor JC Santos revealed Thursday that he is now married to his high school crush, Shyleena Herrera, and that he is about to be a father.
On the sidelines of the press conference for his newest movie "On Vodka, Beers, and Regrets" with Bela Padilla, Santos told entertainment reporter Allan Diones that he got married last September 2019.
He declared that 2019 is the "best year" for him because it was when all his dreams were fulfilled.
"Sobrang thankful ako kay Lord na lahat ng dasal ko, lahat ng pangarap ko, natupad last year... Bukod doon sa career ko, 'yung crush ko noong high school na nabasted ako 15 years ago, nagkita kami ulit at hindi ko na siya pinakawalan," Santos said.
"Siyempre nag-hang out kami for a few months," he added. "Sinabi ko na agad sa parents niya na, 'I want to marry your daughter.' Sinabi ko na agad sa kapatid niya. Nalaman na nila and nag-propose ako, and we got married. And now we have a new beautiful blessing."
Santos went on to share that he and his wife are set to welcome their baby girl next month.
When asked why he kept his wedding and baby a secret, the actor replied: "Hindi namin siya nilihim. Wala lang nagtatanong. Ako naman ang social media ko is about work lang."
