Heart Evangelista reunites with Mom-A A +A
Tuesday, August 26, 2014
AFTER accepting boyfriend Senator Francis Escudero's marriage proposal on Saturday, actress Heart Evangelista reconciles with her estranged mother, Cecile Ongpauco.
The Kapuso actress uploaded a picture on image-sharing application Instagram a photograph of her standing beside Mrs. Ongpauco and elder sister Camille.
This is the first time in a long while that the two were photographed together.
To recall, Mrs. Ongpauco strongly opposed her youngest daughter's relationship with Escudero. She and husband Rey Ongpauco even held a press conference last March 2013 expressing their dismay over Heart's decision to be romantically involved with the politician.
Mrs. Ongpauco cited Escudero's marital status, age difference, and his disrespectful attitude towards them as reasons why they forbid their daughter to continue her relationship with the senator.
She also alleged that in the few occasions Escudero visited their home, the senator came drunk.
But with the latest turn of events, it seems that the Ongpaucos have softened over Evangelista and Escudero's romance.
According to reports, even before Escudero went down on one knee to ask for Evangelista's hand in marriage, he already got the blessing of her father.
The senator reportedly showed his girlfriend of two years a text message from Mr. Ongpauco congratulating them on the engagement news. (Sunnex)
