Alfred Vargas - Husband and Father; Wedding Bells this 2012
14 June 2011

In an interview last June 1 with Ricky Lo for Startalk TX, actor turned politician Alfred Vargas publicly revealed that he was indeed a husband and a father.

Vargas said that he and his family kept their marriage a secret because his wife, Yasmine Espiritu, was not a showbiz personality and the family requested for it to be a private matter.

“Gusto ko talaga sabihin from the start, pero yun nga, gusto nila private. Hindi naman kasi showbiz si Yas, at alam mo naman baka maintriga pa kaya mas mabuti ngang private na lang muna,” Vargas explained.

Their civil wedding ceremony took place August last year at the Supreme Court of the Philippines. They revealed that Espiritu was already pregnant by then. She gave birth to their child, Alexandra Milan, in Italy two months after the wedding.

Despite the public not knowing about Vargas’ family life, he stressed that he never really hid the relationship since his ABS-CBN teleserye “Mutya” co-actors and other friends knew about it.

“Pero siyempre at this point, I'm a public figure and I would like to thank you for giving me, or my family the opportunity na para masabi ko rin na I'm proud I'm married and I have a very beautiful wife, and I will love her forever and we're happy family,” he said.

Vargas also expressed his content with his life saying, “at this point in my life, I think everything is perfect.”

By 2012, Vargas plans to marry Espiritu again, this time for a church wedding. It was scheduled for last March but was pushed to a later date because of the death of Vargas’ father last January.
