Ariel and Gelli plans to move on to Toronto

ARIEL RIVERA plays Jennica Garcia's father in "Ina, Kasusuklaman Ba Kita?" who's rejected by her mom, Jean Garcia, because he's just a poor gardener, compared to Iwa's dad, Lloyd Samartino, who's a rich politician. "Parehong magaling ang mag-ina and I'm glad to be part of this show," says Ariel.

Is it true he and his wife Gelli de Belen are moving soon with their two sons to Canada where he grew up after Gelli's "Sis" was axed? "No, we have plans but not now. At saka may bagong show si Gelli, 'Panday Kids'. Our plan is to leave 5 years from now. May career man kami o wala, we'll go to Toronto para doon na mag-high school and college ang mga anak namin. We made this decision for the sake of our sons kasi mas maraming opportunities for them there kung dun sila nagtapos ng degree. After they've finished with their studies, then we'll decide if we'd stay there or just relax here. Siempre, di pa rin namin basta maiiwan ang pagka-Pilipino namin. Pero malayo pa yung pag-alis namin."
