Did you happen to watch the viral couple whose story was featured on “Maalaala Mo Kaya” last Sunday? Many audiences couldn’t help but shed a tear after watching the inspirational love story of Jeffrey and Ashley Capecenio. Right from the start, the episode already showed promise since their romance is not your typical love story.
What made the couple so special? Jeffrey and Ashley are both married and was blessed with an adorable baby girl, Lina. They might seem like your typical married couple, but their marriage and relationship is anything but typical.
As a matter of fact, Jeffrey identifies himself as gay while the “ilaw ng tahanan,” Ashley, is a lesbian. Although it seems like this kind of arrangement is too complicated to work out, the LGBT couple defied all odds.
How did their love story start? The LGBT couple crossed paths in a gay beauty pageant. There were many contestants, but Ashley was focused solely on Jeffrey, who is one of the contestants. Since then, Ashley decided to pursue Jeffrey.
At first, evasive Jeffrey did not reciprocate Ashley’s romantic advances. However, soon enough, he saw Ashley’s sincerity and love so he relented. This began a long-term relationship that will ultimately lead to marriage.
The couple’s happiness was doubled when they found out that Ashley got pregnant with their first-born. Today, they are both proud parents of baby Lina. Who would have thought that one fateful night will alter their lives forever?
The MMK episode featuring their offbeat yet charming romance was a hit among viewers and recently ABS-CBN released the true people behind this story! Neil Coleta played the role of Jeffrey while Alora Samsam portrayed Ashley.
