The reason behind Heart Evangelista’s tears
Actress Heart Evangelista can’t help but become emotional on her wedding day after receiving a letter from her father, Mr. Reynaldo Ongpauco, which was was read to her during the reception.
Evangelista got married with Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero at the Balesin Island Club on Sunday.
It has been an open issue that the couple’s decision to get married was not accepted by Evangelista’s parents. However despite the report that they have patched things up, Evangelista’s parents have still opted not to attend the wedding.
In the letter that was published on entertainment site Pep, the actress’ father said he really wanted to be there and walk Evangelista down the aisle but "a lot of things has happened that hindered us from going" to the wedding.
"Alam mo anak gustung-gusto kita ihatid sa altar. Sino ba naman ang ama ang ayaw makita ang anak sa pinakaimportanteng araw ng buhay niya?” he wrote.
Nevertheless, Ongpauco asked Escudero to take care of his daughter.
"This is my promise: when the day comes that I see both of you truly happy; when I see Chiz loving you the way you deserve to be loved, I will come knocking on your door," he wrote.
Meanwhile, Evangelista’s sisters and other relatives attended the special occasion.
