MANILA, Philippines – Controversial sexy actress Krista Ranillo has announced that she is going to be a mom soon.
In her first television interview since tying the knot in the United States last week, Ranillo happily confirmed that she is carrying her first child. She quickly clarified that she did not get married because of the baby.
“[It’s] because we really love each other. Early stage pa ako ng pregnancy. Talagang ngayon, we are building a family together. So we’re both excited about that,” Ranillo told “The Buzz.”
Ranillo, daughter of actor Mat Ranillo III, wed Island Pacific Supermarket CEO Jefferson Niño Lim last August 8 in California. It was a small private Jewish-style ceremony held at the Hotel Maya.
Prior to the August 8 ceremony though, Ranillo disclosed in her “The Buzz” exclusive interview that they already exchanged “I dos” on July 14 in Norwalk in Connecticut.
“Kami lang po at wala pong mga witnesses ‘yon. It was very private and talagang reception namin after that sa burger place lang. Pagkatapos po noon nag-decide kami na, ‘Magpakasal naman tayo ng August 8 na parang more of a celebration lang. Imbitahan natin ang mga kaibigan natin tsaka mga kamag-anak natin,’” she said.
“’Yon po pinlano namin na very private lang. Actually, ang guest list lang namin nasa 32,33. Kaya lang ‘yon lang hindi din namin na-control, na-leak sa media…. Medyo lumaki ‘yong guest list so kinancel na lang po namin…. Pero the last minute we decided to push through with August 8,” she added.
At the height of the controversy linking her to People’s Champ Manny Pacquiao, Ranillo flew to the States to avoid the issue.
Life in the US
The sexy star admitted that she initially wanted to get into a fashion business in Los Angeles through the help of her cousin designer.
“Nag-usap kami ng pinsan ko na si David Tupaz, isa siyang designer dito sa LA and nag-usap kami na magco-collaborate kami ng younger line. Kasi ginagawa po niya mga bridal wear, mga gown para sa celebrities,” she said.
While in the US, Ranillo had crossed paths with Lim, her childhood sweetheart, again.
According to Ranillo, Lim is a businessman who graduated summa cum laude in a prestigious university in the US.
She said: “Siguro ‘yong qualities na gusto ko sa kanya is nakikita niya talaga kung ano ang kabutihan ng tao... wala kasing perfect na tao pero pag nahanap mo ang taong perfect sa’yo, ayaw mong lumipas pa ang isang araw na hindi kayo magkasama.”
Reports also said that Ranillo is expected to study law in the US.
