Mla Bulletin | Regine carries Ogie's surname in billing

Singer Regine Velasquez is making sure everyone knows she is married to Ogie Alcasid by carrying his last name in the billing of her upcoming TV show.

The decision to use "Regine Velasquez-Alcasid" is solely hers.

“Ako ‘yung nagpalagay talaga kasi nga I want to carry it kasi siyempre proud ako. Hindi naman ganito, ganyan. Nakikita na lang niya. I really wanted to carry his name. Kaysa naman tinanggal ‘yung Velasquez,” she said.

As soon as she exchanged I do’s with Ogie last December, Regine promised to make her husband her priority.

“Siyempre gano’n naman talaga ‘pag nag-asawa ka na although sa ngayon nga hindi siya ang nagiging priority ko dahil may trabaho. Buti na lang very understanding siya,” she said.

With the couple’s busy schedule, there is limited time for them to be intimate with each other. Still, she welcomes having a baby and will take a rest when she gets pregnant.

“Kung talagang mangyayari, mangyayari, ‘di ba? Kung mangyari ‘yon then I have to give myself a rest. Sana hindi na muna pero hindi mo naman puwedeng i-hold. 'Lord, puwede ba ‘wag muna.' Whatever! Basta sa ngayon I’m just trying to take it easy. Working really hard for the show. Sana abangan n’yo. It’s really, really fun.”

Correcting the usual misconception among newlyweds, Regine says Ogie did not impose limitations on her career.

“Hindi ‘yon gano’n, eh. He also knows that I also don’t like that... na bigyan ako ng ano... alam ko naman, eh. Although minsan kakausapin niya ako. He’ll make me understand.... may asawa ka na. Wala siyang gano’n sa akin. Ako rin naman wala din akong gano’n. Kasi nga we’re in the same business."
