Celebrity Singer Rachel Alejandro Finds 'The One'
26 April 2011

Rachel Alejandro is marrying Spanish journalist Carlos Santamaria in Boracay and guess who’s writing a wedding song for her? That’s right, her ex-boyfriend Dingdong Avanzado.

“I was very appreciative that he made a song [for me and Carlos], for the wedding… It's called 'The One’,” said Rachel in an interview.

Maganda, maganda 'yong kanta… I haven’t heard the whole thing yet but I was touched that he did that,” she said.

Several days from now the big day will happen soon but Rachel still did not disclose the exact date of her wedding.

For some curious folks out there thinking why she is not wearing an engagement ring, Rachel said it was because no formal proposal took place. Their decision to get married only occurred to them during their short stay in Vietnam.

“We spent a few days there and then nag-usap lang kami. We said, ‘You know what, kung ganito tayo kasaya lagi we should get married.' And that was it,” Rachel said.

Though happy as any bride can be, she disclosed that marriage will not be easy especially with her future husband’s job.

"Naloka-loka ako noong pinadala siya sa Japan recently with the radiation and all that, talagang umiiyak ako. Sabi ko, ganoon pala talaga. Siyempre, he's a reporter, kailangan niya," she said.

Rachel enjoys taking care of their wedding preparations and she appreciates her family’s help. "Everyday, it's like we're doing things together. This is parang part of the whole process and I'm really enjoying every minute of it," she said.

Geneva Cruz and Ricky Rivero will be her maid of honor and man of honor, respectively.
