A song once describes love, ”love moves in a mysterious way”. We’ll never know when and to whom are you spending our life with.
Remember Ate Glo? His real name is Renee Hampshire became famous for her impersonation of former Philippine President Gloria Macapagal–Arroyo.
A few years ago, she went to London to try to fix her relationship with an ex-boyfriend, but out of her expectation, she met the man that will make her feel the love she’s looking for.
Last July 2, 2016, at the Chelsea Registry Office in London, United Kingdom, Ate Glow was married to her partner, Mr. Hampshire. They celebrated their nuptials with the closest family and friends and even posted limited photos on social media.
Ate Glow returned to the Philippines and was interviewed on ABS-CBN’s show “Magandang Buhay” with her mother few months after the wedding. She shared how her life has been after disappearing on TV shows and her marriage to her husband.
She shared, “Yung hubby ko tsaka ako, nagkakilala kami online. Ano lang yun eh, sa UK, pero hindi siya dating app. It’s an app for [redacted], lahat nung mga mahilig sa wine and alcohol.
Tapos ayun, parang lagi na niyang nili–like. Kumbaga lagi na niyang fina-follow yung mga restaurants, yung mga places na pinupuntahan ko. So may show ako sa Italy, pagbalik ko sa London sabi niya, “sige magkita tayo.” December 30 yun, ako naman, “sige manonood ako mamaya ng sine.”
Ate Glo added, “So nag-wine kami, tapos biglang sabi niya na “what are you gonna do?” “well I’m supposed to go to the cinema, I’m supposed to go to the movie house.” Tapos sabi niya, “have you eaten?” Sabi ko, “no” tapos bigla na lang niya akong niyaya na kumain. Tapos naimpress ako sa kanya kasi dinala niya ako sa magandang restaurant.”
After that moment, their relationship becomes deeper and later on proposed to her for a wedding during her birth month in their flat in London.
At the end of the segment, the hosts of “Magandang Buhay” surprised her with a message from her husband who was in the UK at that time.
“It’s a pleasure to call you my wife. I’m so very proud of you, and I love you very much. We have a fantastic connection and have done since day one. We embrace our similarities and differences, and it makes us a very strong couple together. And as always darling, I love you today, I love you tomorrow, and I love you forever,”
Ate Glow and her husband are presently living happily in London, United Kingdom.
