Before marrying Tanya Winona Bautista, actor/host Vhong Navarro had a previous marriage with former actress Bianca Lapus.
Looking back, Vhong married the already pregnant Bianca in Floridablanca, Pampanga, in 1998. Seven years later, on May 5, 2005, Vhong filed an annulment case against Bianca. Bianca and Vhong’s son Isaiah Vhong is now 10 years old.
The court pointed out two reasons for granting the annulment: 1.) Bianca was supposedly psyc.h0log!cally incapacitated and 2.) She was allegedly seeing other men while she and Vhong were still together.
By this publicized decision, Bianca’s quiet life became troubled as negative talk began sprouting, such as Bianca allegedly asking money from Vhong and her mental state.
However, according to Bianca, in real-life situations, she and Vhong were in good terms. In fact, she is friends with the newlyweds.
This is also the reason why Vhong and Tanya waited for 11 years to get married. They have to wait for the annulment case to be closed.
Bianca was asked about her reaction regarding her ex-husband’s new marriage.
In a short message she sends to PEP.ph, she said she’s happy for Vhong.
“Masayang-masaya po ako for him and hindi ko din naman ma-imagine na he will end up with another girl.
“‘Tsaka personally, OK naman si Tanya sa akin. Magkakaibigan naman kami lahat.”
Bianca also shared that before the wedding took place, she and Vhong had a serious talk about their son Isaiah Navarro.
“Basta sabi ko, good boy na siya and alagaan niya new family niya.
“At mahal na mahal ko siya bilang kaibigan and dad of my first born.
“Vhong may be a late bloomer as a father, but I am proud that he was able to make bawi naman as the kids were growing up.
“It’s never too late to correct things. We were too young then I know for sure.
“If matured na kami nag-asawa, magtatagal kami, kasi OK ugali namin together, but we met very young.
“Married and didn’t know how to raise a family. Too immature.”
“Pero sabi ko nga sa kanya, no regrets kasi kinailangam siguro namin pagdaanan yun para ihanda kami sa mga taong nakatakda para sa amin—at si Tanya at Jimmy yun.”

All is well for this ex-couple, maybe their love story didn’t come out as what they expected, what really matters is they equally love and support their son all the way.
