Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera: No wedding in Europe

JUST BECAUSE Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera travelled together to Europe to visit Marian's dad, some writers concluded that they probably had a secret wedding while they were there. When Dingdong said this is not so, they insisted: "Siguro, namanhikan na sa daddy ni Marian doon."

Dingdong wants to make it clear no wedding or pamanhikan ever happened in Spain. "A wedding is an important event in one's life. So bakit doon namin gagawin if ever, gayong narito lahat ng relatives and close friends namin? Siempre, mas gusto namin dito sa bansa natin. Our main goal is to see Marian's dad who she hasn't seen for six years so from the airport, we went straight to the restaurant owned by her dad," he says. "Okay ang naging first meeting namin. I thought there might be a language problem but it turned out he speaks Tagalog quite well so naging masaya at maayos ang lahat. He's an outgoing person, down to earth kaya hindi mahirap pakibagayan. Sa kanya pala namana ni Marian yung jolly personality niya. Noong Valentine's Day, tatlo kaming nag-celebrate as her dad was with us for dinner."
