Amy Perez announced last Friday, October 10 in “Umagang kay ganda” that she and her long-time boyfriend Carlo Castillo will be taking a step towards their “new journey”.
The host released her statement saying : “Alam naman ng lahat ng tao kung ano ang pinagdadaanan ko. So I’ll be taking on a new journey sa buhay ko and I’m very happy about it. And I’m very happy to be sharing it with you all, guys. After 15 years, ito na ang inaantay ko. Akala ko nga baka 60 (years old) na ako ikasal, at least hindi naman. Yes, sa wakas.”
(“Everybody knows what I’ve been through. I’ll be taking on a new journey in my life and I’m very happy about it. And I’m very happy to be sharing it with you all, guys. After 15 years, this is what I’ve been waiting for. I thought maybe I’ll get married when I turn 60 years old, at least not. Yes, finally.”)
Amy and Carlo have been together for 8 years and finally tying the knot soon.
Carlo Castillo is a news reporter and a brother of GMA news anchor Cedric Castillo.
The 45-year-old host (Amy) had a son, Adi, with her ex-husband musician Brix Ferraris. She filed a petition to have her marriage annulled on the basis of psychological incapacity.
The Supreme Court denied Amy’s petition to annul her marriage to former husband Brix Ferraris in 2006. However, she did not discuss the annulment issue.
Amy and Carlo had their first son in 2008, then at the age of 40 she got pregnant again with their second child in 2012 wherein she was obliged to take a temporary leave from her shows.
In a phone call to the studio, Carlo vowed to always love Amy. However, they did not reveal any wedding details.
Currently, Amy is with ABS-CBN. She co-hosts The Singing Bee with Roderick Paulate.
