Singer-actress Mystica, Ruby Rose Villanueva in real life, 45, married 23-year-old actor-model Kid Lopez in civil rites at the Aberdeen Court, Great Eastern Hotel on Monday.
Kid Lopez, whose real name is Edwin Nuas, is among her new talents.
The 22-year age gap separating the bride and groom has raised many eyebrows, considering that Mystica has a 26-year-old son from a previous relationship.
But true to her penchant for controversy, the singer known for doing splits is unfazed.
“With that gap na half my age I never expect I’d fall in love with someone like him. It was really fate, tadhana,” said the woman whose real name is Ruby Rose Villanueva.
“Minsan lang po ito sa buhay namin. Kahit ano na po sabihin nila we dont really care. What matters is we are together and both happy!” she added.
Mystica admitted that as manager and talent, their relationship dynamic started as one of mother and son. But one night it developed into something less innocent, according to Kid.
“Uuwi na po sana ako nun. Hindi ako nagpaalam ng personal, sa Facebook lang. Tapos, hindi po niya ako pinauwi. Sabi niya wala siyang kasama sa kwarto,” he said with a laugh.
“That was a joke!” Mystica said, with a bigger laugh.
Mystica said they are planning to have a baby soon, whatever the circumstances may be. “It would be so unfair to him na hindi ko siya mabigyan ng anak, so kung ilan ang darating go tayo riyan.”
“It would be so unfair to him na hindi ko siya mabigyan ng anak, so kung ilan ang darating go tayo riyan,” she quipped.
