Not many celebrities have the privilege of saying that they exchanged Muslim wedding vows at the famous Taj Mahal in New Delhi, India just like celebrity couple Robin Padilla and Mariel Rodriguez. The iconic Indian landmark has long been regarded as a symbol of eternal love which is probably the reason they decided to get hitched there in August 2010. This year, the couple marked another milestone in their relationship with their 11th wedding anniversary on August 19.
The couple, who actually had two more weddings (Born Again wedding and an Igorot ceremony), now have two lovely daughters named Maria Isabella and Gabriella. On her Instagram account just before the eve of their anniversary, Mariel shared some of her favorite photos with her husband with the caption, “11 years I’d still choose you @robinhoodpadilla happy anniversary ?”
Robin greeted his wife on his own account by sharing a video taken during their second honeymoon in Europe in 2014. In the post he thanked his wife again for the unforgettably wonderful moments she gave him.
He wrote, “isa sa mga Honeymoon namin na punong puno ng katatawanan at adventure. literal na walang plano ang mga lakad namin basta in the name of love bahala na kung san kami mapadpad. mula umaga hanggang gabi tawa lang kami ng tawa pinagtatawanan lahat ng nagaganap kahit hindi nakakatawa hahahahahha napapatawa na lang ang iba sa mga kalokohan namin lalo kapag naliligaw na kami at wala ng makaintindi sa aming inglis.
“i miss my mariel rodriguez, siya talaga yun naging walking talking laughing doll at clown ko.
“no dull moment..
“what a wonderful, meaningful and colorful part of my life! isang napakasarap at napakagandang road trip! unforgettable!
“thank you mariel padilla.”
In the same post, the original “Bad Boy of Philippine Cinema” shared what he thinks of his family now that he and Mariel have children together. “Hindi ko man maibabalik ang mariel rodriguez ko pero napalitan naman ng 2 ang dating ikaw, plakadong plakado ni maria isabela ang pagiging performer mo at ni maria gabriela ang pagiging pilya at matakaw mo hahahha 2 little mariel rodriguez
“goodness gracious great balls of fire!” he added.
