“I was scared to really fall in love again, and to even allow someone to be part of my life,” confessed the veteran actress to her now-husband, Lebanese entrepreneur Fadi El Soury, as they exchanged vows during their intimate wedding last Monday.
She may have failed the first time around, but Lotlot de Leon is willing to give love another try with her partner and now-husband, Lebanese entrepreneur Fadi El Soury.
The couple has officially tied the knot last Monday in an intimate garden wedding ceremony, where all of Lotlot’s children and close family, including her father Christopher de Leon and sister Matet de Leon, were noticeably present.
During their exchanging of vows, the veteran actress became emotional as she looked back on her life prior to meeting Fadi almost six years ago.
“There have been so many things that have happened to my life before I met you, which I have learned from. I was scared to really fall in love again, and to even allow someone to be part of my life. But you were just persistent. You didn’t want to let me be. And I thank you for that,” confessed Lotlot.
The Kapuso star said that it was when she learned to let go of her worries that God answered her prayers through her husband.
“Thank you for not making me feel alone when I’m sad. Thank you for putting a smile on my face all the time, and making sure that I am OK. Thank you for being there. Thank you for choosing to be with me. I love you, Fadi,” said Lotlot.
The same goes for Fadi, who said in his vow that Lotlot has been the force that keeps him going in life ever since.
“And then you came into my life, and I found a meaning to live. You complete me. You keep teaching me every day how to love myself. And how to cherish the love we have,” said Fadi.
With this, Fadi promised to devote his whole life to his wife from thereon.
“I don’t believe in love at first sight, but with you, from the moment that I met you, I knew that I am going to build a life with you. You complete me. I love you with all my heart, and I’m going to spend my whole life proving to you the love that I have for you. You complete me,” said Fadi.
Lotlot was first married to former matinee idol Ramon Christopher Gutierrez, whom she had her four children with, Janine, Diego, Maxine, and Jessica. They separated in 2010.
