Alwyn Uytingco And Jennica Garcia Admit Secret WeddingKapatid artists Alwyn Uytingco and Jennica Garcia admitted that they got married on February 12, 2014 at Victory Church in Greenhills, San Juan City.
Alwyn made the announcement when asked if they are planning to get married eventually. They have been together four years.
He said they had no intention to keep it a secret, but they are just finding the right time to tell everyone. It was a very intimate wedding with only their close family and friends in attendance.
Some of their friends don't even know they are married already. Alwyn thanked TV5 for supporting and understanding them, and for giving them the opportunity to star in a "Wattpad" series. The two will star in TV5's "Wattpad Presents" series entitled "Dyepni."
Alwyn said it is their responsibility to tell everyone that their love has already leveled up enough for them to get married.
For Jennica's part, she said it was hard for them to admit their marriage because they work for different networks. Alwyn is with TV5 while Jennica is a former contract artist of GMA-7.
Although they want to announce it sooner, Jennica sees no reason for them to even hold a press conference seeing as they are not big stars anyway.
They informed TV5 that they were married just the other night. It wasn't the reason why they were given the series.
"And ako talaga, I really want to share, kasi it’s a good news and there’s nothing to be ashamed of."
Jennica is proud of her husband because at 26 years old, he already made the commitment to stay with her forever. It's not because he's financially able or that he's mature, but because he really has good intentions for her.
They even showed off their wedding rings to the media after their admission.
Jennica shared that they did the wedding privately. They only told their close friends and family because they are confident no one would speak about it.
The wedding happened on their fourth year anniversary. Jennica said they were supposed to get married last year, but her mother, Jean Garcia, wanted them to wait two more years. As compromise, they waited for a year.
Asked if they are already planning to have a baby, Jennica explained that they have been patient with each other before their wedding, so they are only starting to enjoy each other now. They want to focus on their marriage first, and to travel together.
Why did they decide to get married at an early age? Jennica is only 24 years old. The couple said it was all about their faith on the Lord, and that they want His blessings on their relationship.
Alwyn first told Jennica's father, Jigo Garcia, about his intentions to marry his daughter before they told her mother.
Jigo and his current wife had an anniversary celebration in Tagaytay, so they thought it was proper to announce it there. They then told Jean about it, and she became emotional.
Alwyn proposed to Jennica in April last year.
It was hard for them to tell Jean that they plan to get married because Jennica is an only girl. Jean, however, turned out to be very supportive of their decision. She was there in the wedding.
Jean's boyfriend even provided hotel accommodation for them, so they can stay there during the day of the wedding.
