Heart Evangelista prepared to walk down the aisle solo
Even though she is hoping that her parents will change their mins and attend her wedding with Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero this month, actress Heart Evangelista said she is okay with the idea of walking down the aisle alone.
During an interview of ABS-CBN News with Evangelista, she said that walking solo shows how she braved a lot of trials in her life.
“Actually ever since before, ‘yun naman talaga ang naging problema namin ng parents ko. It’s very hard for them to let go. So matagal ko na rin sinasabi, even in my previous interviews, na baka hindi sila pumunta. Siyempre may konting hope ako na dumating sila. But I’ve accepted that,” she said.
“It is also big for me to walk na mag-isa kasi parang ‘yon na rin ang naging journey ko, na maging brave. Pinaninindigan ko ‘to and this is my lifetime choice. As a woman, this is where I will go,” she added.
Since her parents won’t be there, Evangelista revealed that it will be her siblings who will be with her to offer her hand to Escudero in marriage.
“Actually, they wanted to walk me down the aisle. Pero sinabi ko na daddy ko lang talaga ang gusto kong maglakad sa akin. So walang magre-replace sa kanya. Maglalakad ako pero sa bandang gitna, nandoon ‘yung mga kapatid ko. Sila ang magbibigay sa akin kay Chiz,” she said.
Meanwhile, Evangelista and Escudero will get married at the Balesin Island Club on February 15.
