The first production meeting for the highly anticipated comeback concert tour of former couple Pops Fernandez and Martin Nievera was clearly a family affair.
As they went through the preparations for the upcoming show on Tuesday, the Concert Queen and King were joined by their two children, Ram and Robin Nievera, and Santino, Martin's only child with his former non-showbiz girlfriend Katrina Ojeda. Their spontaneous yet sweet reunion was documented on Pop's Instagram page on which she shared a rare family picture of the Nieveras, much to the delight of many fans.
Looking back on their relationship, Pops and Martin first met in 1982, when the former was still fairly new to showbiz. They tied the knot four years later and had two sons.
The union lasted until 1999, when the couple separated amid speculations of infidelity on Martin's part, which led to Pops filing an annulment of their marriage sooner than later. But despite their failed relationship, the two have managed to sustain their friendship through the years, even having worked together in a number of shows following their unfortunate split.
In a previous interview, Martin said of his current relationship with his former wife, "Pops and I didn’t start out as lovers, that’s why we’re still friends now. Friendship ang foundation namin. Hindi pa-fling-fling. We have been friends for many years before we fell in love with each other, so I think that’s the reason why we are the way we are."
In fact, the two are set to share the stage anew for another concert tour in the US and Canada this year. Titled the "Two-gether Again 2019," Pops and Martin will play for their fans abroad starting this August until September. They are set to hold shows in Atlantic City, Jacksonville, Virginia Beach, and five places in California: Los Angeles, Santa Ynez, Sacramento, Cabazon, and San Diego. For their Canada leg, they will perform in Las Vegas, Chicago, Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto and Seattle.
