Cecilia Ongpauco, the mother of actress Heart Evangelista, shared her thoughts on her daughter’s marriage to Senator Chiz Escudero with ABS-CBN News last Thursday, September 8.
Heart’s mother believes that the two will settle whatever problems they have as she knows that her son-in-law is mature and grounded.
“I know they will be OK! I’ve known Chiz to be a mature and grounded person that’s why I am happy for my daughter,” she shared.
Cecilia shared that she is just praying for the couple as she believes that it’s their private life so she doesn’t need to intervene.
Rumors have been going around social media that the couple have marital problems. This came after the actress dropped her husband’s last name from her Instagram profile. However, Heart has kept “wife” in her profile’s bio.
There have been no statements from both parties addressing the issue that has been circulating the internet. In Heart’s latest vlog, she revealed that she was going through some “personal struggles”.
“I’m not going to lie, I’ve been going through a lot of personal stuff in my mind,” she said.
In her previous vlog back in 2021, Heart’s mother lauded the efforts of her son-in-law as he supports Heart’s endeavors in life.
“You know what I like about your marriage? You allow each other to grow. You don't stunt her growth. You don't cramp her style. I think that's what's good about their marriage. He allows her to grow, mature on her own,” Cecilia previously shared.
Heart and Chiz were married back in 2015 amidst the disapproval of Heart’s parents. Eventually, the couple reconciled with Cecilia and her husband and are now on good terms with one another.
