Camille Prats weds non-showbiz BF
Actress Camille Prats tied the knot with non-showbiz boyfriend John “VJ” Yambao Saturday at the Prats’ family-owned Nayomi Sanctuary Resort in Balete, Batangas
Camille, a 90s child star, looked elegant in a intricately designed off-shoulder, laced wedding gown she matched with a silver tiara, while Yambao was dressed in a three-piece suit with a white dress shirt and bow tie. He completed his dapper ensemble with a pair of black, leather shoes.
This was Camille’s second marriage. She first exchanged wedding vows with Anthony Linsangan but the latter passed away in 2011 because of nasopharyngeal cancer. Linsangan was only 31 years old.
Meanwhile, Prats and Yambao reconnected again in December 2012, 20 years after their last meeting.
They were grade school classmates but drifted apart when Yambao moved to the Unites States while Prats continued her acting career in the Philippines.
“We started talking, hindi kami magkasama and magkalayo kami. He was in the States and we’re only Facebooking and texting. I cannot say I started becoming fond of him because of how he was with me. He was very consistent. I really felt na pinilit niya yung sarili niya, na he wants to be part of my life,” she said.
The actress said she was reluctant at first to enter into a new relationship after Linsangan’s death, but she saw the good qualities of Yambao.
“Nakita ko yung sincerity niya… how genuine he was and his intentions are,” she said. Prats added that Yambao get along well with her son Nathan.
The couple got engaged in July 2015. (MNS)
