Two years after their much-publicized separation, Tricia Centenera is now ready to talk about her failed marriage with Gab Valenciano. The model/blogger recalled that March 27 would have been their third anniversary as a married couple but realized that even though things didn’t go as planned, she was able to pick herself up and move on.
“I actually saw my ex-husband last night – we didn’t even realize it was the eve of our, what would have been anniversary. We had a friendly embrace & were surrounded by family, it was nice,” she wrote on her blog.
“Guys I’m sharing this story because I know a few of you have followed my journey through all of this & even taken the time to reach out to me. You are the ones I’m writing to today to say thanks for all the love, I appreciate you all. And to those asking me how I feel today I want to tell you this… I FEEL EMPOWERED,” she added.
She also defended Gab against his bashers.
“My ex-husband I believe is a good man who has just made some bad choices, but are any of you completely perfect? I can say I’ve made some pretty poor life choices too but I believe it’s how we bounce back & get back up that’s what’s more important. There’s nothing wrong with failing forward & he is trying his best to be the best version of himself so please let him try.”
Tricia then said that she considers Gab as her friend now.
“Yes this man broke me however I didn’t let it ruin me forever. Through sincere prayer, petition & forgiveness, I can now call him a friend even though the expectation is that as his ex-wife I should hate him, I honestly don’t. Yet a friend who I’m sure will p*#s me off at times but none the less a friend…or maybe we’re more like siblings now haha he’s like the sibling who doesn’t give the best love advice.”
Tricia is now happily in a relationship with a “man I love whole heartedly” and Gab approves of it.
“He’s sincerely happy for us. He asks love & healing advice & is trying for himself.”
On the other hand, Gab took to social media to assure everyone that he is trying to be better.
Gab and Tricia were married three times—a civil ceremony in the United States in 2014 and two ceremonies in the Philippines in 2015. Rumors about their separation started in 2016 and Gab eventually filed for legal separation in the following year.
