  • Vilma Santos-Recto and Ralph Recto just marked their 29th wedding anniversary last December 11, 2021!

    To mark this milestone in their relationship, the Star For All Seasons uploaded a special vlog on her Youtube channel with her husband. In the vlog, the couple answered multiple questions that made them spill facts about their life as a married couple for 29 years.

    The vlog was filled with Vilma and Ralph's laughter and their responses to the questions are both nakakakilig and relatable to other married couples. After 29 years of being married, plus their 7 years of being boyfriend and girlfriend, it's obvious that they are still madly in love with each other.

    Who's more jealous and who says sorry first?

    The first question showed Ralph's sense of humor when they were asked who is more jealous as a partner. Ralph points at Vilma saying, "siya selosa but I don't blame her." Vilma refused to agree with him and tried to set the record straight.

    She insisted, "seloso ka (Ralph) rin tahimik ka lang, Papa. Kunwari ka pa. I think pareho kami."

    But if Ralph has a pilyo side to him, he's also a picture of a "better half," who inspires his partner to be a better person. Vilma admits like other couples they also get into arguments.

    "Hindi naman po perfect ang relationship namin ni Ralph, mayroon rin po kaming away. Talagang mabibigat na away," Vilma shared. Ralph bantered and adds, "kung ano 'yung napapanood niyo sa mga pelikula ni V gano'n na gano'n ['yung mga away namin]."


    And during these fights, Vilma revealed how they make amends. She says ceasefire would happen when the magic phrase, "let's just count our blessings" has been said.

    "This is one thing I have learned, kapag nag-aaway kami, minsan kapag nagka-bati kami, magte-text siya, 'It's enough'. Alam mo ang laging magic word lang po: 'let's just count our blessings.' Lumalambot puso ko do'n."

    The celebrity-turned-politician also shared she used to be selfish when it comes to saying sorry and it was Ralph who taught her the value of admitting her own faults.

    "I still feel the fire ng pagmamahal ni Ralph sa akin, sa pamilya"

    Throughout the vlog, Ralph has been candid about how much he loves and values Vilma. "21 years from now papakasalan ko uli si V para sa 50th anniversary. 71 years from now papakasalan pa rin kita," he said.

    Ralph adds, "If I had a million more lives to get married a million more times, I will marry you 2 million times."

    The senator even said, "kapag nawala si V hindi ko kaya." For her part, Vilma reciprocates her husband's affection saying, "at hindi ko rin po siya ipagpapalit...At the end of the day ang talagang nagtatagal sa'min ay yung respeto namin sa isa't isa and dun po pumapasok yung pagmamahal."

    Parenting styles

    When it comes to being parents, who spoil their children more, Vilma or Ralph? Both say they do but Vilma notes she only spoils her kids to a certain point.

    "Hindi rin naman ako spoiler, malambing lang ako sa mga anak ko, I play with them parang barkada, pero mahigpit din ako," she explained.

    Vilma and Ralph got married on December 11, 1992.  They have one child together, Ryan Christian. Vilma also has one son, Luis Manzano, from her previous marriage to Edu Manzano.

    Happy anniversary Vilma and Ralph!
