Three years ago, JC De Vera tied the knot with Rikkah Cruz in a civil ceremony. 

Now the actor wants to see the mother of their three-year-old daughter Lana Athena, walk down the aisle.

In a vlog uploaded by actress Erich Gonzales, the 34-year-old star shared they aim to mount their church wedding this year. 

According to him, it was actually supposed to happen last year but was postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“Nangyari kasi diyan inuna namin ‘yung civil wedding tapos lumabas si Lana. Right after lumabas si Lana dapat magchu-church wedding na kami eh nagka-pandemic,” he said.

“Kailangan ‘yung church. Hindi ko siya totally nada-digest na hanggang du’n lang kami sa civil wedding. Mas gusto talaga namin sa church. ‘Yung civil wedding alam namin na dumaan lang. Mas gusto pa namin mag-prepare ng something really big,” he added.

Asked why he kept it all private, JC noted it wasn’t intentional.

“Hindi talaga ako ‘yung ma-announce. (Pero) hindi secret. I will always tell everyone,” he pointed out.
