Lani Mercado recently talked about Jolo Revilla and Angelica Alita's upcoming wedding, which will be held this coming December 15.
The couple decided to hold their wedding in Pelican Hill, which is located in California, USA.
As reported by Philippines' Ultimate Showbiz Hub (PUSH), authored by Leo Bukas, Lani revealed that it will be a Christian wedding.
The soon-to-be-married couple will leave the Philippines on December 6 along with their whole family.
“It’s a Christian wedding. This will be the first male na may ikakasal akong anak kasi yung una was si Inah na may tatlong apo na ako," she said.
"Well, this is something different kasi sa labas ng bansa. Napaka-hectic and this the first time also na magbabakasyon kami nang buo with Bong’s brothers and sisters. It’s the first time na buong pamilya nandoon kami,” she added.
Mayor Lani also revealed the reason why Angelica and Jolo decided to be wed in the U.S.
“Sila ang nag-decide. Parang idol talaga ni Jolo si papa niya, kasi di ba, ang unang kasal namin was in the States, pero that was very solemn, very simple. Ito, he opted to do in the States."
She also believes that is the perfect time for her son to get married.
“Jolo is I think 31, he’s of age and I do believe na ano na ito, tamang panahon ito para sa kanya," she uttered.
Moreover, Lani also gave hints about famous names who are invited to the much-awaited event.
“We fixed the guest lists yesterday, ang alam kong pupunta ay sina Mayor Inday Sara (Duterte), Cong. Martin Romualdez, ninong si Sen. Jinggoy (Estrada), ninong din niya si Sen. Manny Pacquiao pero may proxy siya na pupunta.
"Walang artista, eh, majority pulitiko. Alam mo naman si Jolo, eh, he’s very active sa public service life niya. Wala po siyang ninang from channel 7 and channel 2 or from the (showbiz) industry,” she disclosed.
When asked about Jolo's fiancée, Lani has nothing but praises for her.
“Siguro, sa pagkakakilala ko kay Angel, masasabi ko, kahit siya ay beauty queen ay simple siyang tao. She’s very supportive of Jolo. Nakikita ko at peace si Jolo with her. Basta ang alam ko very supportive partner siya," Lani said.
"Kasi if she opted to be a career woman, malamang hindi niya pakakasalan si Jolo this year at she vied for Binibining Pilipinas kasi she was being groomed to be, to follow the footsteps of Catriona (Gray), kasi nasa team Catriona siya, eh. Pero mas pinili niya ang pag-ibig. Mabait na bata naman siya,” she added.
