MANILA, Philippines – Looks like there’ll be no wedding bells for “Comedy Concert Queen” Ai Ai delas Alas and her boyfriend Gerald Sibayan this year.
According to an article written by Nerisa Almo for Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP), the comedienne admitted she was the one who told Gerald that they should postpone their wedding which was originally set this year.
She said that she wants to be single for a little more time.
She explained that although she’s been divorced for a couple of years now, the recognition here in the Philippines only came out last year so even just in the legal documents, she wants to feel that she’s indeed single.
Her 23-year-old boyfriend agreed to her decision and told her that they’ll just get married whenever she’s ready
Ai Ai said that Gerald never fails to make her feel special especially during their special days as a couple.
“Consistent ‘yon, na every monthsary namin, may bulaklak ‘yon. Napakaimposible na wala,” she shared.
[He’s consistent. If it’s our monthsary, he never fails to give me flowers. That would be impossible if there’s none.]
She added that he takes her out on dates especially when they’re celebrating their anniversary.
Ai Ai admitted back in 2015 that they were already planning to settle down and Gerald wants to work first and save money for their special day.
GMA News Online quoted Ai Ai as saying:“Oo naman, oo naman. Kaya lang, sabi ko nga, si Gerald kasi… lalaking-lalaki. Hindi ‘yung basta na lang susugod. Siyempre gusto niya magwu-work siya. Gusto niya mag-ipon para sa kasal namin.”
[Yes, of course, but just like what I said, Gerald is a real man. He doesn’t just do things without careful planning. He wants to work first and save for our wedding.]
Despite their 30-year age gap, the actress said that when Gerald walked into her life, he changed her view on love and made her realize why it never worked out with anyone else in the past.
Ai Ai has been married twice; to Miguel Vera and businessman Jed Salang.
She has two children with Vera – Nicolo and Sofia. She also has a son, Sancho, from a relationship before Vera.
