For Asia's Songbird, living in with Ogie Alcasid helped her know more about her future groom.
Regine Velasquez expressed her gratitude to all the press people who never publicized that she and fianc'eacute; Ogie Alcasid have been living together for quite some time now. At the press conference of her latest full-length album, titled Fantasy under Universal Records, Asia'rsquo;s Songbird explained that she knew that some reporters are aware that she and Ogie have been living under one roof for three years now but they never wrote about it. "It was an open secret and I wanted to thank all of you because I know that some of you knew that we live together, but you guys didn'rsquo;t write about it. So we appreciate it very much kasi we needed to fix a lot of things first before we could announce that we are living together." Regine'rsquo;s admission also came out just a couple of weeks before her wedding to Ogie on December 22.
The singer also said that she has no regrets of moving in with Ogie before getting married. "It'rsquo;s actually one of the best decisions I'rsquo;ve ever made in my life," she shared. "Because I won'rsquo;t be shocked anymore kasi nag-adjust na kami, eh. Three years na kaming living together so andun na 'lsquo;yung adjustment, andun na 'lsquo;yung honeymoon."
But she clarified that even if they have been living together, the couple still respect each other'rsquo;s personal space. "Kahit papano 'lsquo;di pa kami kasal, [so] there'rsquo;s this line, that invisible line na ayaw mo namang i-cross 'lsquo;yon. Alam mo namang hindi mo pa asawa, may ganun. So I kind of liked it. It was a good decision I think." She was quick to add that not everybody would agree with her, but she has no regrets. "Can you imagine nasanay ako na nakatira ako sa mga parents ko tapos 'lsquo;pag nagpakasal ako biglang paggising ko may Ogie Alcasid sa tabi ko," she beamed. "That'rsquo;s what they say na until you live with the person you will never really know [him], pero ngayon parang kilalang-kilala ko na siya." 'nbsp;
Regine also said when she was doing the dedication for her latest album it hit her that it also marks her last album as a single woman. "Sana magustuhan nila [because] we really worked hard for this album." 'nbsp;
The Songbird also laughed about the comments about her daring pictures in the album. She said that it was part of her idea to do it since she might not be able to do it again if ever she gets pregnant. When Push.com.ph asked her if she is willing to do sexy pictorials when she is pregnant as a memento, the singer replied smiling, "Kung maganda ako [why not?] Kung pangit ako, bakit pa ako mag-aabala?"
