Melai Cantiveros shares how she fought for her love for Jason.
In celebration of the upcoming Valentine's Day, Melai Cantiveros shared her experiences on love. In an episode of Magandang Buhay on February 13, Wednesday, the host-comedienne shared that she really fought for her love for Jason Francisco.
"Actually ipinaglaban ko talaga si Jason. Lalo na 'yung time namin sa 'PBB' na marami talaga ang humuhusga," she stated. The couple met on Pinoy Big Brother: Double Up in 2009.
She also revealed that her parents had second thoughts about Jason before so she also remained firm for their love for each other during that time.
"Siyempre 'yung parents ko rin akala nila ang gwapo ni Jason so hindi papatol sa akin. So ipinaglaban ko rin. [Sabi ko] 'sobrang in love yan sa akin.' So ipinaglaban ko talaga 'yung mukha ko, ipinaglaban ko ‘yung pagmamahalan namin ni Jason," she stated.
Melai and Jason tied the knot in December 2013. They welcomed their first child in April 2014. Melai gave birth to their second child in April 2017.
