“I call him my answered prayer. I knew then that he was the one for me,” said Gladys Reyes.
Would you look at that, we were just seeing them on Mara Clara and boom! time really is so fast. Gladys just revealed that she and her love-team-turned-husband Christopher Roxas plan to renew their wedding vows to celebrate their 25 years as a couple.
She said on the ABS-CBN talk show “Tonight with Boy Abunda”: “Sabi ko lang, ‘Hindi naman siguro lahat ng ano ay nakakarating sa ganito… We started very young, sa ‘Mara Clara’ pa. He was 12, I was 14.” [I think not everything (relationships) go this far… We started very young at Mara Clara, he was 12 and I was 14.]
She added that as they got older through the years, their relationship matured also.
Gladys Reyes Roxas-Sommereux had her big break for the ’90s soap opera, Mara Clara, as Clara. Her co-star in the soap opera, Christopher Roxas (born Jean-Christopher Sommereux) eventually became her husband on January 23, 2004.
They were blessed with their fourth child on May, 2017.
