Cai Cortez, Daughter Of Rez, Gives Birth To A Baby Boy Named Habib. Father Is Tunisian Husband Of Cai, Wissem Rakhmi

CAI CORTEZ was visibly pregnant when she attended the presscon and preview of her Metro Manila Filmfest entry, “Ang Babae sa Septic Tank 2”. A few days later, she gave birth to a baby boy to be named Habib (which means love) on December 22. Cai is married to a Tunisian businessman named Wissem Rakhmi who’s now based here in Manila. They got married in July after meeting on an online dating set called Tinder. It’s good her husband continues to allow her to work as an actress.
“Okay lang sa kanya kasi alam niyang dito ako masaya,” she says. “He’s very loving, maasikaso, malambing. But medyo seloso lang, lalo kapag umuuwi siya nang bahay at nasa trabaho pa ko.”

Wissem is a Muslim but the difference in their religion is not a problem for them at all. “He’s not a practising Muslim at willing nga siya magpa-convert sa Catholic religion kaya gusto siya ng parents ko.” Her dad is actor Rez Cortez who’s very active with the Oasis of Love Catholic Community.

“Bale four years na siya rito sa bansa natin and he’s working for a Canadian company. 28 ako and he’s 37. He’s never been married and first time pa lang namin mag-meet in person, he already told me, ‘I will marry you!’ At tinotoo naman niya. After six months kaming magkilala, we were married in civil rites at balak din niyang magpakasal kami sa kanila sa Tunisia. Dati, party girl ako na kung umuwi, madaling araw na. But now, domesticated na ang lola nyo. Homemaker na ang drama ko na nagluluto para sa husband ko.”

Cai did several movies this year, playing the lead role in the comedy “Ang Taba Ko Kasi” with Mark Neumann. She then supported AlDub in “Imagine You and Me”. She was also Joey Paras’ love interest in “Working Beks”. In “Ang Babae sa Septic Tank 2”, she plays the line producer who’s willing to give in to all Eugene Domingo’s whims in the movie they’re making. She has also finished a new romantic comedy for Regal Entertainment, “Foolish Love”, where she plays the best friend of Angeline Quinto and Miho Nishida, directed by Joel Lamangan.
