MANILA, Philippines – Kean Cipriano and Chynna Ortaleza surprised fans on New Year’s Day when they posted photos of their hands wearing wedding rings on Instagram – the two had reportedly gotten married a few weeks before January 1. (READ: Kean Cipriano and Chynna Ortaleza get married)
At a press conference for his upcoming movie Love Is Blind, reporters asked Kean about details of his wedding and how he’s dealing with married life.
“Love is intense… life is short,” started Kean, when asked to comment on the quick progression of his and Chynna’s relationship. In an October 2015 interview on Tonight with Boy Abunda, Kean admitted that he was in a relationship with Chynna.
“Kungbaga, we’re all born to love and to be happy and to die one day, pero kungbaga there’s one perfect thing na mararanasan mo sa buhay mo ay yung magmahal ng sobra-sobra diba, yun lang siguro,” Kean continued.
(It’s like, we’re all born to love, and to be happy, and to die one day, but there’s one perfect thing that we can experience in life, and that’s to love unconditionally, right? I guess that’s what it is.)
Since Kean and Chynna reportedly had a civil ceremony, Kean was asked if the couple was planning a church wedding. Kean thanked the reporter for asking, but refused to give further comment.
“The thing is, me and my wife talked about it and discussed it na parang (and it’s like) all the details about our lives, and our marriage, and our family, we’d really like to keep it to ourselves. All the details, I mean. Thank you for respecting that.”
Kean did speak to reporters a bit after the conference, about how he’s been finding married life.
“It’s indescribable, honestly, because it’s everyone’s dream. It’s everyone’s dream to find peace deep within with someone right? So it’s really a dream come true,” Kean said, adding later that a baby would be welcome too.
“Miracle lahat ng nangyayari sa mundo, lahat tayo kaya tayo nabuhay sa mundo na ‘to, miracle lahat ‘to (Everything that happens in the world, the reason all of us are born into the world, it’s all a miracle.). So with your question, with that, having a baby, yeah, that’d be another dream come true.”
Kean also said that he’s been very inspired to create ever since he got married.
On comments that he didn’t seem like the marrying type before the news broke out, Kean replied, “Marumi man akong tingnan, malinis ako magmahal.” (I might look dirty, but I love clean.)
Baby on the way?
Questions about a possible baby on the way were also asked during the conference, spurred by a photo Chynna posted on Instagram, where fans commented that she looked like she might have a baby bump.
On the topic of Chynna possibly being pregnant, Kean refused to comment as well: “Dahil (Because) I respect her decision that much, and our decision as a family, and our family’s decision as well, I don’t really want to give out any details regarding us. But we are living a good life, with a happy family, na pag nagsalita ako ng detalye baka matulog ako sa baba ng kama (and if I give any details, I might sleep at the bottom of the bed),” he ended with a laugh.
After the conference, Kean explained to reporters his and Chynna’s decision to keep things private. “Me and Chynna, we’ve talked about it na anything regarding our personal lives and or family, we want to keep the details to ourselves. It’s that sacred for us na (that) we wanna keep it to ourselves.”
“We believe in individuality, because at the end of the day, it’s still gonna be Kean Cipriano of Callalily and Chynna Ortaleza, who is a brilliant actress, and we are very much inspired by each other.”
Kean is the frontman of the band Callalily, which Chynna is an actress known for playing antagonist roles on TV. Kean said that Love Is Blind is his and Chynna’s first project together, though they don’t have scenes together in the movie.
Kean has always been quiet about his love life. When reporters pointed it out, he explained that it was because he respects the people in his life: “Kaya ako pag napansin niyo kapag tinatanong ako about my past relationships or whatever parang I really can’t dish out anything kasi it’s something really ano eh, private yun eh. Kungbaga parallel universe yung career ko as a public individual and yung personal na buhay, so yun yung sinasabi ko na yeah it’s really hard to be private in the public arena, pero it’s pretty amazing how you keep it kasi it becomes more special.”
(That’s why you night have noticed that when I’m asked about my past relationships or whatever, I can’t really dish out anything because it’s something really private. In a way, my career as a public individual and my personal life are parallel universes, so that’s what I mean when I say that yeah, it’s really hard to be private in the public arena, but it’s pretty amazing how you keep it because it becomes more special.)
On handling fans commenting on photos, the same way that they did when speculation rose about Chynna’s alleged pregnancy, Kean said that he doesn’t mind. “I mean we all have our freedom of expressing our insights and comments, and the fact that we live in the world of Internet nowadays you know that’s… kasi wala naman Internet dati diba, so ngayon lahat ng tao pwede magcomment, pwede magsalita (because we didn’t have the Internet before right, so now everyone can comment, they can all speak).
“I respect every single comment… kasi (because) it’s their decision to post, and it’s their time. And the thing is, we post the same pictures too. And the fact na nagpost ka ng (we posted a) picture on the Internet, it’s bound to be judged,” he continued.
“At the end of the day, matutulog tayo na alam natin kung ano yung ginagawa natin, alam natin kung sino yung pamilya natin, alam natin kung aling mahalaga sa buhay natin, so that’s how I deal with it.”
(At the end of the day, we all go to bed knowing what we’ve done, knowing who our families are, knowing what’s important in our lives, so that’s how I deal with it.) – Rappler.com
